COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ugly Pug is a schwarzbier, or black lager. But the real story is its name. Fritz saw his mother-in-law’s pug, Oscar, lounging in a chair and he (Fritz) shouted, “What an ugly pug!” Everyone laughed. Your’re right – they were drinking a test batch that night.

Great Dark beer Out of Texas. Served this after asking for ’the darkest beer in the biggest glass’ in San Antonio. Tastes much like a stout, all the dark roasty flavors without the alcohol finish. Never one for Black Lagers but Ugly Pug has become a regular in my drinking collection.

Middling black beer. Pours dark brown, aroma is mild roasted coffee, metallic aftertaste. Tried at Hank and Sullys in Lawrence during DH 2017.

Pours brown with a beige head. Trace of lactic chocolate scent with a hint of bitter roasty chocolate malt. Definately a good beer for enjoying with friends but nothing over the top.

This here Texan beer is something else. Dark to mildly dark with an apperance similar to that of burnt sienna with a touch of chesnut brown and a twinkle of mahogany. Aroma is sweet cinnamon mixed with the smoky morning haze of southern Tennessee pine trees. It is mild on the palate with a taste of bitter love and grinded coffee beans exported from cuba. It goes down easy but leaves a aftertaste similar to a past love that you never get over. It leaves the stomach in knots like any dark loger. All in all it is a average dark beer

Patrickctenchi (6690) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Can: Pours deep, clear, cola-brown with a tight beige head. Lactic chocolate, earthy caramel scent. Taste is slightly bitter, roasty/earthy chocolate malt. Rich, almost sticky/tacky body/feel... Very decent, and pretty tasty and comfortable..... (A little bias on this one, as I’ve had the pleasure of having 11 pugs as my children in my lifetime.....) thanks to shrubber85 for the share.

Originally rated on 2/17/09. Not much in the aroma department, appearance was a deep brown/ black, with plenty of carbonation, decent head that left some lace. Mouthfeel was average with a carbonation bite. Flavors of toasted malts, and chocolate these were a bit on the light side though. Overall it is the best Rahr beer i have sampled yet, and its a decent interpretation of the style

shrubber85 (11570) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2017
Can. Sour milk, chocolate malt, and hay aroma. Chestnut brown with large tan head. Smoky, lightly sweet chocolate malt, and mildly bitter hay flavor. Good body. Tastes way better than it smells.
