A dark, malty celebration ale with layered flavors and beautifully balanced hopping. Jubelale pours deep garnet in color, medium bodied, with notes of chicory, earth, spice and fruit. To beer lovers, it’s like Yule fire and family.

wedgie9 (2504) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Tasted on 1/3/12 from a capped 12oz bottle. Pours clear dark ruby amber with a very thick but smooth khaki head that slowly recedes to a nice coat of even lace. The nose is malty and spiced with notes of caramel, cinnamon, clove, and a lightly fruity aroma as well. The flavor is more bitter with the spices more prevalent, with the same caramel and fruit from the nose. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long, lightly bitter spiced finish.

leghorn99 (83) - Livorno, ITALY - JAN 30, 2015
Versa di colore marrone scuro, torbido; schiuma color crema, aderente e di buona persistenza. L’aroma è forte di malto, dolce, profumi di frutta scura (fichi, prugne), tostato. Al palato inizia con il caldo del malto, sapore tostato, sentori di biscotto; poi ancora caramello e speziature; nel finale fanno la loro comparsa note più amarognole, scorze di limone, note agrumate, il tutto condito da un buon bilanciamento dato dal luppolo. Corpo medio-pieno, media carbonazione.

04.26.15 best by. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a beer can glass on 11.19.14. A: Caramel, cherry, and some tartness (cranberry?). A: Off-white fizz for a head that recedes quickly. Opaque hazelnut color in spots of the body. Lots of see through red at the sides and bottom of the glass. T: Cherry and caramel dominate. A very slight woodiness is subtle. P: Smooth with bubbles on the back end. O: It tastes a lot like cherry cola. It has a touch more caramel, though.

vadie (969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2015
Orange sombre avec un grand col beige. L’arôme du malt anglais sucré, houblons fruité, et un peu d’épices. Le goût est similar, mais avec plus d’épices. Plein du corps, et presque onctueux.

gripweed57 (911) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Bright reddish copper color. Large creamy beige head. Nice clinging lace. Rich malt nose with notes of toasted nuts and cocoa. Bittersweet toasted malt flavor has a distinctive spicy hop bite with citrus notes. Nicely balanced dark malts and spicy hops make for a tasty holiday ale that stands apart from the traditional spiced ales. Very enjoyable.
