Pours fairly dark brown with a big retained tan colored head. Aroma is hoppy grapefruit but there is some nice malty roastiness there too. Flavor is really nice with some decent complexity, especially an ale of this ABV. Enjoyable maltiness with some assertive hoppy to balance out the package. Quite nice.

Pours clear dark brown, with a tan head. Aromas of dark fruit, hops, and malt. Taste is roasted malt, dark fruit and hops. Alcohol is there, but it works well with the other tastes. Thanks to Indiana Red for this one.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2006 2004 draught pint at Redbones. Wonderful deep red with dark brown tinges, quite transluscent with a small off-white head. Smells of sweet malt, light spicing (cinnamon) and lightly spicy hops that are very fresh. Flavor starts out sweet and spicy with the hops being present but not bitter, just fresh and spicy. Light toffee and toasted malt, sweet caramel and molasses on the finish with more herbal hops-like flavor. Full bodied and delicious with a smooth, creamy consistency and very low carbonation. Beautiful! 8/5/8/4/17

2005 draught pint at Redbones. More crystal malt heavy with that profound hardness and a thick sugariness as well. Cherries, tangerines and bitter oranges crowd the palate and seem at odds with the (rather acidic) roasty/toasty malts. Seemed rather jumbled and in the end it goes from a bit too sweet, to too bitter without much room for in between. Though there certainly is no skimping on ingredients and the overall texture was about the same as last year. Rating is an average. 8/4/7/3/14

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.

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.
