This ‘Super Jubel’ was discovered by accident two decades ago when a clumsy burglar didn’t realize the weight of his stolen keg of Jubelale. He dropped it outside to freeze in the season’s sub-zero temperatures – only to be discovered the next morning by Gary Fish, Deschutes Brewery owner. More than half the liquid in the keg had frozen and the remaining beer was a very cold, highly concentrated ‘Jubelale on steroids.’ It was so good that the brewers set about recreating it, coming up with an annual ‘Super Jubel’ that is aged in oak barrels. A limited amount has been available on tap every year, 2010 will be only the second time that the brewery has bottled up this brew for sale. The first time it was available by bottle was a special millennium edition in 2000.

22oz bottle from Beerhive Pub in SLC. Bottle says best after 1/29/11. Pours super dark amber with a slight golden tint. Medium mocha head that fades somewhat quickly. Aroma is... wow. Rich bourbon, licorice, leather, molasses all jump out. Taste is big, dark caramel malts with brown sugar sweetness, a hint of vanilla, and just enough hops for balance. Not that different from Jubelale, just cranked up rich malts, extra abv, and the barrel aging that gives it all those wonderful notes. Thinner body than you’re expecting from the smell. It’s hard to be neutral about this one - this is one of my favorite beers ever. The only negative I’ll throw out there is that Deschutes will apparently only make this every 10 years. It’s way too good for that and should join their once per year reserve series with Abyss, Black Butte XX*, etc. Or at least every other year like they’re doing with The Dissident.

Draft at Fiddler’s. Lovely clear amber pour with offwhite head that dissipates to a ring. A smidge of lacing. Aroma brings lots of caramelized brown sugar; hop presence is there (surprisingly); caramel and candi. Taste: sweet, rich caramelized sugar and toffee. A beer whose style really may be best described as "winter warmer." Balanced by moderate bitterness. Sweet and strong, but no alcohol burn. Palate: full sticky body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Overall: this is a nice one. I may be biased by the fact that I’m out at a neighborhood joint without a child on a Saturday night. But I don’t think so. Not an everyday beer, but if I was in a ski lodge and it was snowing, this could be the perfect beer.

On draught at 2014 Holiday Ale Festival. Amber dark brown color. Aroma is vanilla, roasted nuts, toffee, and very dark malts. Taste is spiced rum, bourbon, roasted malt, and pitted fruit. Strong, smooth sipping warmer.

scoth (546) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Pours hazy dark chestnut brown with a thin khaki head, very fine lacing, low retention. Big malty aromas, fig, toast, dark cherry, vanilla, chocolate, alcohol and grass. Thick body, smooth, lightly dry. Strong not quite cloying sweetness, mild dry bitter finish. Alcohol taste is a little strong. An enjoyable sipper.

slowrunner77 (6165) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 5, 2014
on tap-this jubel was "super" indeed. more wine-like than beer-like in many aspects. the feel was so smooth from the pinot barrels, which also gave a pleasant oakiness and fruity character to the aroma and deeply complex flavor. a little on the sweet side, which is really the only thing preventing this one from getting a couple tens. a sipper for sure. reminded me of DFH’s better beers, but with added layers of complexity. subsequent aged samples not quite a 4.5, more like a 4.3."

Koelschtrinker (11167) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 11, 2014
Starker, malzig schokoladiger Antrunk. Leichte Alkoholnoten, nicht zu süß, die Malzigkeit wird aber drückend. Dabei etwas trocken, schwer aber gut. 11/12/8/12/9/12

[Tap] Snifter at a Deschutes tap event. Tasting notes from 2012. Nearly black pour. Low carbonation and very little head. Dark fruits, fig, fruitcake and alcohol in the nose. Flavor notes include molasses, dark fruits, almond, pine sap, brown sugar and raisins. Nice balance and coating mouthfeel. Sweet finish allows more alcohol to be featured. Good stuff.
