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

The color was dark brown/black. The head was thin, creamy, and off-white. The aroma was coffee, chocolate, and spice. The flavor was smoke, meat, and spice. The palate was lightly carbonated. The finish was roasty.

KevinReddirt (43) - Midland, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2016
Obtained with a number of other beers in a flight. Serves up very dark brown, almost black with a nice tan head. The scent is burned toast and I mean that as a compliment. A taste of the brew gives out smoke, molasses and more of that bread. Savoring it after swallowing I get a nutty finish, perhaps pecan. Black lagers with a higher alcohol kick do more for me. But I do not complain.

BrownPaperBags (16) - Plano, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2016
Pours a dark, dark brown color. Not at all black when held to the light, even some clarity sneaks through. First striking feature is a well pronounced smokey character which is quite predominant both in the nose and taste. Excellent roast malt. Flavor is well developed but a little short of anything fantastic. Sometimes one-dimensional, simple roast caramel malt. A little bit of hoppy character somewhere in there. All in all a fresh black lager, very enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours very dark clear ruby with a diminutive head. Nose has chocolate, burnt malt and vanilla. Mouth follows suit with a finish of chocolate malt. Crisp, neither sweet nor bitter with low carbonation and a smooth palate.

islay (2324) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2016
20 oz. at California Pizza Kitchen at DFW airport. Consumed on 2.11.16. Medium to dark brown. Moderate amount of light taupe head. Amber hue to the liquid. Simple, malty aroma. Toffee scent. Toasted to roasted malt taste. Light to med body. Soft and smooth in palate. Reasonably lively. Boring but inoffensive and accessible. My notes are few, which often is a sign of an underwhelming beer. Not the most interesting craft beer, actually one of the least interesting craft beers Ive had.
