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.

Bottle. Clear red brown with fine carbonation and a medium tan head. Toffee, yeast, light clove and faint resinous hop. Taste is dryly sweet. Medium body with a light syrupy feel.

JMerritt (1745) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottled, best by 03/02/14, purchased in late December 2013. Murky brown with orange highlights. Head is medium in size, light brown, and partially diminishing down to a frothy ring. Decent egg froth lacing. Sweet aroma with notes of toffee, caramel, ripened plums, light toast, white grape, light tobacco leaf and a little bit of smoke. Rather high brown sugar sweetness that turns a little medicinal, leathery, and very dry. Quite a bit of toasted malts and the finish, but also some earthy dry leaves, brown paper sack, very light cloves, and dusty bakers chocolate. Tasted old. I doubt I would try this again - the mix of overly sweet aromas and initial taste followed with really dry, almost abrasive earth tones was not my cup of tea.

1/21/2012. On tap at the brewpub in Portland. Reddish brown with a tan head. Spicy and malty aromas with earthy and fruity notes. Good balance and complexity.

Bif (1300) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Pours a dark mahogany color with a tan head and ample lacing. Aroma of roast malt, nutty and a hint of dark chocolate and dark fruit. Taste of roasted malt, coffee, nutty with hint of chocolate and spice. Has a malty bitterness with a finish that is quite dry. Medium body, quite smooth and nicely balanced. Nice winter beer but needs a bit of a kick to be a good English Strong Ale.

Sevenlee (1197) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2013
Pours a dark brown colour with a beige head. Aroma is malt, caramel, fruit like plums and some spices. Taste is medium to high sweet leading to a smooth sweet fruity finish. Great stuff.

Gramoit (347) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2013
Dark Red colour. Strong malt character with some hints of spice. Will have to try this in winter. Was not the best pick for a 30C day in Australia.

Ah Jubelale, each year you come back for the holidays and each year I happily buy you. On tap in the bar, in the keggerator, in a bottle all of your ways please me and my friends too. Even my dad likes you.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 This is a hearty winter ale. The initial taste and aroma is malty. It has an intriguing fruity/spicy taste with a strong taste of hops as it goes down. Not a bad choice for a winter beer.
