Jubel pours a dark amber (rather than brown) with a slight head and mild effervesence. The aroma is malty with a slight fruity afterthought. The taste is malty, full, and rich, giving a pleasant mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Dark amber color. Medium head. Aroma is brown sugar, malts and fruit. A medium bodied dunkel. Malts are roasty, nutty and sweet. Mild hops. Touch of spiciness. Nicely balanced. I mainly bought this beer for the fancy Santa bottle, but it was a definitely drinkable beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Habersham Beverage Warehouse, Savannah, Ga - 16 oz stopper top bottle - blue label with "Jubel" on it. Pours a dark copper with a frothy thick off-white head. Malty aroma with some toffee and molasses notes. Flavor has the same molasses tints with some sweet caramel and a touch of chocolate. Mouthfeel is thick and warming. Decent dunkel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rich brown with a small tan head. Strong malt and caramel laden aroma.Very pleasant. The taste is also strong chewy malt. More caramel, and perhaps a hint of brown sugar. Very faint hop character. It seems almost non-existent. The finish is sweetened malt and perhaps a hint of fruit. Surprisingly good beer, as I didn't have high expectations for this.
