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.

I look forward to this beer all year long, and when the holidays come around I do my part to keep the brewer in business. That said, it seems like every year itís less robust than I remember the year before. Maybe Iím projecting memories of holiday cheer into the beer, but it never seems to live up to what I remember. Nonetheless, itís a wonderful quaff that fills my whole mouth with flavor.

Pours deep mahogany with brown hioghlights and a thin tan head. Nutty, roasted malt aroma, with a bit of spice (nutmeg? cinnamon?). Flat mouthfeel. A truckload of caramel malt lingers throughout, which the hops have the fight through. Some coffee and roasted malt. It really keeps true to a English Strong Ale without falling into the ESB category.

Deep and solid amber/ruby red. Candy or Fruity presence in aroma. At an alcohol % lower than 7% I am surprised and confused about how prevalent it is through out. Wish they would mask it just a little more.

Much better than other "winter warmers" Iíve had this year. Strong malt taste. Hops. When English "strong ales" are rich in flavor like American strong ales (but without the heavy taste), then we get something like this one. A very good beer.

Pours mahogany with a great looking tan head. Aroma is caramel, malt, hint of toastiness, plum and mild spiciness. Flavor is sweet, decent amount of fruits and malt, giving way to more hints of bitter and spice. Itís pretty well balanced for a winter ale. Itís not crazy, radical or shocking. Itís just a great winter ale. Iíd definitely purchase this again.

thepilferer (31) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Pours almost as dark as a porter with a 2-finger tan head. Slight lacing. Smells of malt, caramel, alcohol and maybe a hint of stone fruit. Flavor is coffee, caramel, then a hoppy dry finish. Nice medium-full body with soft carbonation. Best winter ale this side of Grand Carolus Noel that Iíve tried

Pours deep brown with foamy tanhead. Nose is malty. Flavor is roasted malt, dry, with some molasses and sugar. Dry, clean finish. Good beer
