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.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2009 Pours a deep garnet with clarity; wonderful head, moderately full, mostly lasting, creamy/pillowy, light tan, and some nice, soapy lacing. Nose is toffee, toasty almonds, hints of chocolate, and some pine hops and light roast notes in the back; rather pleasant. Flavor does not match the nose; toffee and almonds with some light dried fruit notes with plenty of piney/earthy hops and a medium-high bitterness. The bitterness lingers through the finish with the pine and leaves a long tingling on the tongue. Palate is medium bodied, moderate carbonation, and a creamy, dryish feel. Good winter warmer, but could improve with some aging. The malt richness is lacking a bit leading the hops to dominate more than I would like. Nothing spectacular, but well done beer for the cold months in Colorado.

12-oz, ’06. Pours a deep ruddy brown with a swirl of tannish head that falls to film pretty much by the time you walk to wherever you’re going to sit and drink the thing. Nice toasty malt on the nose--this carries through to the palate in a big way. Medium body, low-medium carb. On the palate, there’s that toasty malt again, maybe a little very subdued toffeeishness. Mostly just crisp roasty flavors, though. Enormously appealing. The finish hookslides into a big bubble of earth and herbal bitterness. I dig what unclemattie’s saying about tobacco, but that wouldn’t have been the first word I’d’ve used to describe it. This is a really fine effort, and I honestly can’t remember past vintages well enough to know if this one’s different. Regardless, cheers to Deschutes for another solid achievement.

Gift from asteele8. 2006 Vinage. Dark reddish-brown in color. Impressive almond colored head. Aroma of malts, nuts, caramel, some pine. Very smooth texture and a balanced palate. Very sweet. Light flavors of choclate, tobacco. Great ale to just sit back and enjoy a sweet maduro cigar with.

Dark amber. Aroma is flowery and spicy hops with caramel and hints of chocolate and darker fruits. Unlike most of their other ’English’ beers, this one felt much more English... but not 100% genuine either.

2006 12 oz bottle. Pours a nice red brown with a creamy head. Aroma has hints of chocolate, spices, hops, and coffee. Flavor is very similiar in addition to sweet toasted carmel notes. Nice dry hop finish. 2006 Jubelale far exceeds previous years attempts.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2009 This is a nice Strong amber ale, very malty and smooth. Mix of holiday spices with some summer fruit elements that do very well in masking a somewhat strong alcohol bite. Can taste some pine tree notes in there as well. Liked the hop kick too. Strong, complex malt essence. Another fine offering from what is becoming one of my favorite brewers. Re-rating a 2006 I have had sitting around for 1+ year now. Absolutely incredible. Flavors have softened but become richer and more indecernable. Excellent drink.

To me this is a Brown Ale as it looks and tastes that way. Great rich flavor of chocolate, carmel, toffee and roasted malt. Thick rich head that lasts a long time. I look forward to anything Deschutes puts out, seasonal or otherwise.

Dark amber with a long lasting creamy light brown head and light carb. Smells great: cola, roots, tobacoo, caramel. Malty taste with a late hop dryness in the finish.

Bottle. My first seasonal winter beer I have gotten to try in the PNW. I am looking forward to all the different ones from the PNW. Pours a dark amber color (mostly red making it dark) with a nice light tan head on top. Aroma is malt backbone through and through. Caramel, toffee, holiday spices, gingerbread, and vanilla hit the nose. Flavor is hints of chocolate, caramel, toffee, and gingerbread. Hops come in nicely at the end of the taste to give a nice bite. A good winter ale to start off with.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2007 2006, 12oz bottle locally via Roth’s. Pours a dark brown with red tint. Large chunky head. Strong aroma of caramel, toffee, and plums with some alcohol underneath.Tastes quite a bit different though. Starts out with some vanilla/toffee and finishes hot, somewhat acidic, and spicey/peppery. A hoppy aftertaste. Not at all what i expected.Not bad, just nothing like it smells like, lol. i think this is maybe too young and would do well cellared for 6+ months?
