COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our winter ale has a gorgeous mahogany hue, a hint of hazelnuts, and a finish reminiscent of mocha and toffee. No spices, just a perfect blend of five specialty malts. Cellarable for 3+ years.

This is a beautiful deep golden red ale. Frothy head that remains till the last. Strong spice flavors that do not linger very long. Very nice blend of malt, beer goodness and spices..

Draft. Deep copper red with a short-lived small head. Great winter warmer style beer with a good balance of sweet and bitter and finishes exactly how the style should Ė great warming feel.

Great winter seasonal beer. Rare find in NJ. Pour from 12 ounce bottle to a pint. Pour very dark amber with thin white head. Malty and boozy but in a good way. Enjoy if Troeg Mad Elf is out of stock

Just brown, dark brown. Fluffy toasted froth. Holds well. Beautiful lace. Toasted whole wheat bread burnt on the edges, made with a touch of molasses, spread with homemade syrup; good hop funk steps through, and boogies on down the palate. Jazzy mouthfeel. Warming. Creamy. Mocha cappuccino made with Italian roast.

Let me start by saying I am a big fan of Winter and Old Ales, and Old Jubilation may be my favorite. The beer pours a reddish brown with a relatively good head of foam that hold up well. The aroma is tart cherry, currents, malt, and a wisp of alcohol. A great smelling beer. The Cherry and Currents in the aroma take of the beginning of the taste, and remain for quite a while, then you pick up a good dose of malt, and the taste ends with a mild burn (as would be expected in a Winter Warmer), and a good dose of bittering hops. Wow Mouthfeel and Drinkability are what you would expect from a quality brewed strong Ale. Over all outstanding!

exparte (59) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2009
Moderately sweet and earthy aroma of licorice, caramel and wood. Gorgeous deep reddish brown color with a thick, rocky head that lasts beyond the final drop. Substantial lacing. Medium sweetness with hints of nuts. Substantial alcohol warmth. Full body with a hefty mouthfeel. Lively carbonation with a lasting sweet malt finish. This is a big winner. Highly recommended for those cold winter nights, or anytime, really.

Pours reddish-brown with soft white head. Aroma of stone fruit, sweet malt and boozy alcohol. Taste fruity sweet but dry leaving your tongue with a light oak bitterness. Overall a complex beer that is good to sip and marvel all of the great flavors.
