Another bottle from my want list sent to me by bitbucket. Thanks again Bob! I really appreciate all the great beer you have sent to me... Deschutes Jubelale 2006 pours out a medium to dark brown color. It has an interesting foamy head with large and tiny bubbes packed together in a moonscape-like design. It collapses unevenly to form a residual frothy crown. The lacing is quite intricate and plentiful. The aroma contains roasted malt, some light fruitiness, and caramel. Roasted malt, caramel malt, and light mocha notes comprise the flavor. There is also some delicate fruitiness/citrus and mild bitterness as the beer warms. It has a dry, cocoa-like finish. The overall flavor is very controlled, balanced, and pleasing. Average body and mouthfeel. This is a very good Winter Ale (probably toward the top of the list) and one of the better Deschutes brews that Iíve had. Sadly, this is just another satisfying beer that isnít available in my area... 12 oz bottle, 6.7% abv (250 1017M).

2006 Pours a very nice looking brown color. Nothing specal in the head, but itís there. The smell is complex, but not overpowering. The flavor and drinkability are great for this brew. Almost a sweet taste at some points. Very good combonation between the sweet flavor and the hops/alcohol. Very, drinkable.

12 oz bottle from Bev Mo La Mesa. Pours a deep dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma was a little hoppy......very strong malt character.

On tap @ Wildwood restaurant in Portland, OR, Probably not a fair rating. I will try it again some other time. Had it following a pint of the unbelievably huge The Abyss.

2006 aquired from BuckeyeBoy. Thanks. Pours a dark brown with a nice sized off white head. The first aroma I thought I caught was maybe ripened plums. Flavor of malts, light spices, and a touch of smoke and bitter hops in the finish. Feels creamy to the palate.

Jubelale is my favorite winter seasonal. On a few occasions, Iíve had the chance to try this on cask or on nitro, and it is truly an amazing experience. It manages to be malty, roasted and hoppy in a very well balanced way. I also really like that Deschutes has a local artist make a new label for this beer every year. When I find myself gearing up for 6 months of dark days, the appearance of a new Jubelale label brightens my day.

This is a wonderful, strong, rich and very smokey beer. It is so rich in flavor it feels more like a holiday meal then a holiday beer. This is by far my favorite winter ale I have had. Very bitter in my my book means very good.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - JAN 12, 2007
Cloudy red, small yellow head. Mostly malt and caramel aroma. Sweet hoppy flavor, citrus, malt, and burnt caramel. A bit too thin but decent balanced finish.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2007
Pour looks very nice, with reddish copper body, and a dense ochre colored head. Aroma of toffee, brown sugar and cherry, maybe a light roast character. Tastes of sugar and honey, followed by some burnt toffee, caramel, and then some pear flavors. Finishes more heavily on the roast tendancies, and the hops lend to a woody taste. Feels creamy without a heavy body. Excellent winter beer, well blended flavors.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2007
Pours a deep dark amber with a nice fluffy off white head and some streaky lacing. Aroma is nutty and toffee-ish with lots of fruity esters, herbal and floral hops, some earthy spiciness as well. GOod full malt profile- lots of caramel and nutty malts, toasty, light chocolate, dried fruits and a good clean ho bitterness. Good full mouthfeel, yet easy to drink. Nice strong ale.
