On draft at Ojai Beverage Company. Dark amber pour with just a thin white head. Hop forward almost a Barleywine feel, but not much sweetness to balance.

rondphoto (2197) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 26, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Dark amber brown color, thick tan head, narrow bands of lace. Taste is earthy malt with dark candied fruit that turns bitter on the swallow, then allowing sweet to return, as well as the warm sense of alcohol. It works, but a little heavy for the overall taste.

JStax (3172) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2014
12 ounce bottle poured into a teku. Pours a dark copper to amber with a khaki head of velvety lacing. The aroma is dry and earthy sweetness. The taste is woody and softly bitter. Lower carbonation, thicker mouthfeel.

AWISLguy (1382) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha. Pours a dark reddish with an off-white head. Aroma has stone fruits, bananas, candied fruits and spices. Taste is of candied fruits, sweet malts, some spices, and simple sugar. Heavily sweet malty. Medium bodied. Finishes sweet. Shrug? Malty, with candy. Likely solid for style. Not great to me. 13.4

DrunkSanta410 (306) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy, murky brown with thin khaki head. Aroma is caramel malts, honey, a faint fruitiness of rasins and cherries. A bit of pepper. Taste is malty, slightly sweet. Definite rasin and date flavors. Some earthy notes in the aftertaste. Palate is medium body, low carbonation. Overall an interesting beer, just not my favorite style.

vmilaxer29 (408) - North Dakota, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Appearance: finger of khaki brown head, diminishes quickly, burnt amber color through light, cloudy, good lace. Aroma: nut, caramel, light roast coffee, faint sweet fruit, light earthy yeast, floral and subdued orange citrus hops. Palate: medium-full body, average carbonation, dry finish, oily and sticky carbonation. Taste: mild sweetness at the front, settles in right after you swallow, and finishes with a light and lasting bitterness. Overall, very complex and deep. Very well done.

Shot (167) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a large beige head. Nice aromas of caramel, spices, ginger and biscuit. Flavors of caramel, cinnamon, raisin, brown sugar and bready notes. Subtle hoppiness. Clean mouthfeel with slight oiliness. Pretty nice.

lownote (96) - USA - NOV 21, 2014
Pours from tap a nice red/brown with just a bit of white head. Not much aroma but what’s there is earthy. Taste is a bit hoppy and very dry. There’s a woody aftertaste that lingers. Really nice carbonation and thickness.

ronaldtheriot (1311) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Deschutes Jubelale has a medium, beige head, a rust-red, opaque appearance, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of rich, full, fruit cake, dates, dried fruit, some alcohol, cocoa powder, and cookies. Taste is of all those elements, plus strong hop bitterness and dark bread crust. Mouthfeel is medium, and Deschutes Jubelale finishes on the dry side and sip-able. RJT

larryLSB (438) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Poured from 12oz into a goblet. Medium-dark brown with a medium tan head. Nose is a mixed blend of sweet aromas and a bit of spice, quite busy, but oh so nice. Taste is on the sweet side, full bodied beer, nice, thick and a bit chewy. Good stuff for the holidays.
