COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

nakedwhendrunk (2079) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Reviewed from notes She pours a fairly dark brown and leaves the same colored body with a white almost off white colored half finger head that dies to a small coating on the top of the body. Some spotty lacing is left. The smell has a malty sort of caramel but kinda coming through in a bland sort of way. Still there’s some toasty yet also somewhat burnt nuttiness, spice tries to come through but stays muted for the most part. The taste has a bland earthy caramel nuttiness, malty nutty aftertaste, dry finish. The palate has a medium body, fairly sessionable - as sessionable as a winter warmer can be. Carbonation is fairly smooth and good for the style, decent to me. Overall, for the most part, I tend to like Deschutes a ton, but this one is honestly only average to me.

Gerbeer (1777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2014
2013 vintage. 12 oz bottle. Pours mahogany with full head. Aromas of toffee, malt extract, and golden raisins. Flavors of salt water taffy, raisin bread, and grass. Possibly some spice . Bitter finish with alcohol present. Recall 2012 being much better.

Muggus69 (1198) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2014
355ml bottle BB 05/11/14 Beautiful looking ruby body, decent clarity, with a dense creamy beige head topping of precedings. Good intensity to the nose; rich crystal malt characters of roast nuts, burnt caramels and light charred bread layered with earthy hop spices and vinous plummy fruit esters. Excellent weight to the palate; chewy, almost sticky malt texture. Subdued carbonation contributes to the lusciousness. Palate packed full of rich malt; toffee, golden syrup, treacle, nuts, toast and a touch of cocoa. Finishes with an assertive bitterness, lingering notes of dried leafy herbs, earthy hops and red plum fruits. A thoroughly enjoyable ale! Somewhere between an Esb and English barley wine; certainly ticks all of the boxes for showcasing tasty malts

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Pours a dark hazy red with a creamy light tan head. On the nose, caramel, toffee, hot chocolate, a little cinnamon, some dark fruits, and hazelnut. A nice biscuity malt note on the taste, nice light spiciness, caramel, light coffee, and an earthy bitterness. Quite nice, I love when holiday beers don’t bombard you with spice.

Nontastic (1) - Missouri, USA - JAN 5, 2014 does not count
Pours a darker amber, with a nice thick cream colored head. Spicy with a bit of bitterness. Earthy, slightly nutty, with some woody tones. One of my favorite seasonals I have tried.
