Foamy tan head on a clear amber/orange body. Sweet malt and bitter hop in the aroma with a nice roasted tone and light spices. Rather mild but nice and inviting. Flavor is a little thin but tasty. Sweet caramelly with hoppy tones and notes of chocolate and toffee.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Jubelale pours a dark reddish brown with a brown head that quickly goes to a film.
Its aroma is sweet figgy chocolate with a little bitterness and molasses.
The flavor is roasted malts with some figs and chocolate and spices. It has a nice bitter finish that balances it well. The mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy, but a little acidic.
Overall, a very fine winter seasonal with some nice alcohol warming. Reminds me of Great Divide’s Hibernation Ale.

Very deep amber in color. Aroma is sweet, roasty and malty. Flavor is fairly hoppy. Finish provides a roasty malt taste. Interesting combination of the hops and the roastiness.

-sob- Anyway, pours very thin with little head, and drinks a heavy smokey flavor. Thinly spiced and hopped. Not bad!

An amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of hops and hints of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet and very roasted, but also woody and with a dry hoppy finish.

Reddish coloured. Quite fruity and malty. Very sweet flavour. Not a bad beer, just plain boring.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite malty. Great beer in the beginning, but the finish is a bit thin and watery. Therefore it lacks complexity, which would make it much better.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Color of dark wood with rich, red highlights. Dense, rich, fruity malt aroma with an underpinning of saturated, roasted caramel. Bubblegummy malt flavor that appears in the aroma as well as it warms. A big hop and deeply roasted component with a dark cherry yeast flavor and an omnipresent celery seed flavor persist. I hate celery. Get an Iron Duke from Wellinton County and compare thses two.
