Nice beer! Bottle from Glenville beverage. Stored and served at 50 degrees. Dark brown with a nice tan head that leaves a very nice lace around my glass. no real smell of hops, as it should be, flavor is medum in character. It is a little bitter but a little sticky sweet too. This beer is perfect for it’s style. Go find one. Or ask me, Ill trade you something. You should have one.

A beer of the month club beer for me. Big malty nose and a flowery hop note. Advertised as sweet but went down less sweet tahn expected so I loved it! Smooth beer! jmulv (336) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2009
The Ubu is arguably Lake Placid’s finest offering. It’s quite dark and malty. The taste has a slight hint of smokiness and coffee like a porter, but retains the touch of bitterness that an ale of this nature should have. Finishes very crisply, refreshes the palate, the body, and the mind. A fine fine brew. cleverlobo (331) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 25, 2012

Deep dark and delicious. Easy drinking despite being dark and high in alcohol. Best on draft at the Pub!!

Its body has a dark brown color with deep crimson highlights. The head on top was about one and half fingers thick, light tan in color and made very nice lacing on the glass. Sweet caramel and brown sugary notes pop out in the nose along with some toasted malt and mild earthy/leafy hops. It has a base of roasted and toasted bready malt flavors. There is plenty of sweetness up front with notes of brown sugar, sweet/buttery bread, diacetyl and dark caramel. The 7%abv adds only a slight touch of character and is mostly well hidden. The middle sees the addition of dried leafy and earth hop flavor along with some bitterness for balance. The finish has a nice blend of sweet malt, a hint of bitter dark chocolate and hops. It has a smooth, slightly slick texture with soft yet active carbonation in a solid medium to full body. bigflatsbeer (3) - New York, USA - FEB 13, 2012 does not count
Appearance: Vert dark brown color. You can see light through it but it may be the darkest brown beer I have seen. micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Smell: Sweet somewhat fruity smell.
Taste: Very smooth and drinkable. I’m imprerssed, a received a mixed 12 pack as a gift.
Mouthfeel: A little on the heavy side, but it is very drinkable.
Overall: I would buy this agian, good during the winter months up north. This was 2nd beer I tried in mixed 12 pack, the best so far and my guess the best in the pack.
Pours brownish with ruby hig lights. It has a tall dense head leaving fine sticky lacing. nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2014
Well carbonated too.
Aroma is strong of rich malts and some molasses.
There is also a toffee sweetness too.
Taste is of complex malts with good character.
Some roasted malts come through as well as wood and leather and a finish similar to licorise.
This beer has a medium feel with a bitter and slight alcohol warming.
I was pleasently surprized with this beer. I was expecting something like an amber ale, but this style took me back a bit.
12 ounce bottle, brown pour medium tan head, strong malt aroma. Excellent flavors, balanced, solid malt backbone, hops and some fruit notes. Excellent brew!! khart0126 (4) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2015 does not count
I’m not a huge English Strong Ale guy, but this beer is fantastic. Smells amazing, looks amazing, and the taste is even better.
