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.

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?

dark amber pour thick tan well laced head. Interesting hop character reminiscent of cloves well hopped. Palate is average. Flavor is an odd mix of malts some carmels some "holiday spices" & a warm swallow. Decent.

Mahogany in colour, rich creamy beige coloured head, great lacing. The aroma is of light alcohol, caramel and cookie malts, gingerbread, light sweetness. The flavour is mildly bitter, more gingerbread, caramel malts, quite sweet. Chalky bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a chocolate powder bitterness. Not bad but doesn’t hold up as well as the Fullers Vintage Ales do.

<font size=-2> 355ml bottle obtained in a trade with <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>DarkElf, thanks Stephen. Best Before 12/25/04.</font>

Not a bad beer, though I was expecting more after the hype my friends were giving this beer. A decent seasonal beer, though.
