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, itís like Yule fire and family.

This is an excellent example of what an IPA should be, though rarely is. A biscuity, fruity palate blended with caramel balances off the full-bodied hops that come across as "warming" rather than "bitter." The only truly detrimental aspects of this brew are its rather limited complexity and almost non-existent nose. Still, a fine brew.

Poured into a pint glass, dark blood reddish brown hue. Color is spectacular in good light. The body is very malty, so if you like a good malt brew, from an IPA lover, Id say this is a delicious beer that brings out a little bit of coffee grind, choco taste out, to drink while its available. Little lacing, little head. I suggest a icey cold glass from the freezer, cause this one will warm you up!

Draft at Oíbrienís. Aromas were fruity but thatís about it. Flavor was a bit better with some hoppy bitterness and decent malty body. Not bad.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2008 12oz bottle probably a month or so old. pours a dark amber with modest head. not much going on in the aroma, some nuttiness and sweet caramel, smells like itíll be a balanced beer. flavor is full, mild chocolate, toasted biscuit caramel, nutty. a nicely balanced beer that fits the season. great work.

Rich and malty with a meat and potatoes body. Hard to have more than one in sitting. Flavor is intense, but get to me half way through the beer. Donít know if I could rock this again. BAH HUMBUG!

I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. Delicious and rich malts and hoppy bite. Full body, strong alcohol, bitter balanced by sweetness.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2007 Rerate: 2007 Bottle. Man, whoever designed that bottle mustíve had a field day. WEEE!! Woody malty aroma, pours a murky dark mahogany with an offwhite head. Huge malt flavor and dark fruits with some hops and acidity in the finish. the malt in this is fantastic. In one word, this beer is YUMMY!

tangy, citrusy, slightly sweet aroma. dark amber with a light brown head. smooth with a little weight across the tongue. bright hops at beginning and end with a light caramel middle--the blaance a little tenuous

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2007 2007: Ruby brown color, aroma of cherries, caramel, plum, prunes, yeast. Lots of cherries in the taste, almost Robitussin-like, some yeast, sweet bitter finish, bready. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel. Each component seems to work but not sold on the beer as a whole. 2006: Hazy copper brown color, yeasty caramel aroma but pretty weak, malty bitter taste with a little chocolate and cherry. A little spice for the winter. I had a 2005 a couple weeks ago and donít remember it being as good as this one. 6-4-8-3-14=3.5

2006 bottle from BeerandBlues2. Pour clear dark red to brown color with a big tan head. Aromas are cherry, clove, nutmeg, honey, cooked sugar. Nice dark cherry flavor with a subtle blend of spice. Strong bitterness. Hefty palate. Really pretty enjoyable beer. Thanks Brad.
