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.

[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.

Bottle @tasting. Pours black with a shade of purple about it. Sherry and cherry on the nose. One hell of a nose at that. Toffee , plums and dates also some vanilla, a very complex taste palate, wonderful.

Bottle at Craig’s. Clear dark brown pour, thin tan head. Plum, raisin, sherry aromas, light spice background. Taste adds some chocolate to the mix. Very nice.

Slightly cloudy and light brown. Ringed off white head. Lovely rich, redcurrant and light steely but bright maltiness. Backlit booze. Oily, light nutmeg and easy spice. Rich and tense sweetness. Lovely light cinnamon and a firm finish.

Well, I’ve had this a few times, and figured it was time to review. Pours dark brown with a mahogany tone with light, little latte rim and bubbles. Smells magnificent. Sweet molasses, candy, caramelized sugar, plums, brown sugar, malt, malt, malt - so delicate and sumptuous. Flavor follows with the same and add in some really nice nougat flavors and cola flavors. Medium on light syrup body with moderate carb and semi dry finish, this hits the spot. I’m glad to have a few more bottles. Really coming into it’s own right now. A really nice beer.

Pours dark dark amber with a bit of off white head. Smell sweet fig, cross between a quad and barley wine. Taste buttered toast and caramel. Toffee, cream, vanilla, sweet boozy red fruits. Tough drinking, big bodied. Not that great
