Ubu Ale Brewed by the Lake Placid Pub & Brewery in Lake Placid, New York
The mountain village of Lake Placid was once home to a legendary chocolate
lab named Ubu, the biggest dog you've ever seen with an uncanny nose for
great beer. Deep garnet red in color, this English-Style Ale is a tribute to
the legend of Ubu. It features a smooth, rich maltiness complemented by just
the right amount of hops. Here's to the legend! UBU Ale is a English Strong
Ale brewed with Cluster and Willamette hops. The malt barley consist of 2
Row, Crystal and Chocolate Malt. ABV: 6.5%. IBUs: 38.
Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance: Poured out a chocolaty brown; not completely black. Nice 1/2" head
that faded away into pleasant white swirls.
Smell: Nice bouquet of chocolate, toasted grains. Aroma is somewhat flat, but
does not detract from the enjoyment of the beer at all.
Taste: Sweet up front, with slight hints of chocolate. Middle features a lot of
subdued barley and slight hints of hops. Finish is more of that sweetness and
toasted grains, along with still more chocolaty goodness. Aftertaste is creamy
and smoky; very, very enjoyable.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation was right on the nose for this style and certainly adds
to the enjoyment of the beer.
Overall: Very good to excellent strong ale.This is somewhere between a porter
and a stout. Very enjoyable. If you are a fan of unique beers that are actually
enjoyable, this is the brew for you. If you find it, buy it.
