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.

No complaints here. Mm-mmm!! Tthis is one tasty burg . . . uh, beer! Quite a bit like a couple I had at the recent Holiday Ale Fest. Quite dark-fruity/tangy, sweet and malty; raisin-bready nose. The only weak point is a bit of wateriness in the finish. A fine addition to the holiday season lineup.

ChazMania (660) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Bottled. Nice malty brown color. Small head. Good chewy texture with flavors of fig, oak and brown sugar. Nice beer and good change to my palate from things I have recently been drinking.

highlandlad (1448) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - DEC 6, 2007
The third and best of a flight of three US Xmas ales generously supplied to Ecze’s Sydney RB bash 2007 by the esteemed Linc, who has access to beers well beyond the average schmo (ie, me). This was my pick of the bunch by a whisker - the others were Bridgeport’s Ebenezer Ale and Sam Adams Holiday Porter. It was the best-looking, ruby with a short head that lasted til Christmas. Nice aroma of treacle scones and sherry - clean. Thinner bodied than the others but not to the extent that it felt like a flaw. Very fruity aroma - cranberries, I wrote, but that may just be the suggestibility power of an Xmas ale. Strong crystal malt toffee notes and a resinous US hop finish. Quite astringent. Sweet and sticky.

ZiggyG (131) - Gladstone, Oregon, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black. Nice 2 inch tan head that leaves lots of lacing. Smell is strong roast coffee malts and chocolate. Taste is mellow coffee with a nice integrated hops bitterness at the end. A hint of skunkiness spoiled the flavor a bit. Mouthfeel is full with medium-low carbonation. Leaves the mouth feeling coated with a nice tingle in the throat.

Interesting beer. Sweet nose, mildly fruity and floral. Dry finish, with a full mouthfeel. Lightly fruity and rich caramel malt flavor, some hop bitterness. Low carbonation.
