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.

2003 Vintage Santa Bottle:
Clear copper colour with a thick dense tan head. Aroma of metal (just like copper!), malt, grapes, brown sugar and a mild amount of cherries. Light-bodied; Sweet caramel flavours line the mouth and reveal some mild malt flavours with the bonus atrocity of metal. Aftertaste is very subtle...a bit of the sweetness and some faint nuttyness is noticed. Overall, fairly bad for the style, but a decent beer none-the-less, and a nice bottle to celebrate Christmas! I bought this painted swing-top bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 19-December-2003.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew pours a small light brown head of finely sized bubbles that left behind a good lacing. It had a transparent amber brown body with carbonation rising in the mug. It has a mild malty aroma and a very nice smooth initial taste with hints of spice and a malty flavor. It was a very nice all around brew that I would like to have more of.

Just a great alt! Bittersweet from the munich malt and noble hops. Thick head with a crystal clear orange-brown color.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2004
Miature hootch jug bottle with cute handle. Liquid smoke aroma is quite sharp initially but mellows by the end of the bottle to be quite agreeable. Reddish brown with a very good off-white head. Body is on the thin side of average. Flavour starts thin compared to the initial aroma but builds through the glass. A light effervescence on the tongue. A light bodied lightly spiced and smoked offering.

Mild malt nose in the bottle, becomes powdery smelling in the snifter. Deep chestnut brown with lacy head. Excessively gimmicky bottle. Parched grain and sorghum flavor. Thin and slightly metallic. I could swear that this was a dunkelweisse, rather than an alt. The bottle just said Jubel, and it differed from alcfron’s deScription of the Jubel bottle, and I was at a quandry whether to rate this as the Jubel Dunkel, since the bottle looked like the Dunkel, with a different label...

Cloudy brown color with a medium head. Grainy and wheat filled aroma. The flavor is full of rich malts and more wheat with some spice. Damn, I thought this was really quite good!

Had the old, blue labeled, "Jubel" version, bottle at Julios Spring Beer Fest, 4/2/05. Copper-reddish body, with some fiery reddish-orange hues and some light mahogany browns and a good sized, yellow beige head, slight retention. Aroma of sweet caramel and lightly sour yeast, with honey, herbs and light spices (cinnamon and anise). A profound earthy/grainy/breadiness as well. Malted wheat, sweet candied orange, thick, medium body, with not much wateriness. Earthiness on the finish, with plenty of dry breadiness and light alcohol warmth.

This brew poured very little head, but it had good lacing on the side of my mug. This beer had carbonation to it. It had a smooth taste with an ever so slight aftertaste. It had a citrusy aroma. To me it had a creamy and smooth mouth feel to it. Some bitterness, but not overwhelming.
