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.

Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Big malt and caramel up front. Spices and thick and syrupy texture. Middle is moderately high lively carbonation. Brown sugar is there..bitterness kind of balances it out in the middle & finish. Not a big fan of this brew, but itís a nice bold flavored sweet and spicy winter brew so I have to give it credit.

Off bitterness dominates this beer, it's not very good. For a strong ale there is very little malt fullness to back the hops that aren't right for this beer. At Hops and Hominy SF. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium slightly bitter and malty taste with berries, some earthy notes and Christmas spices. A hint of hops. Balanced with medium taste spectrum and medium, malty and slightly hoppy aftertaste.

Drjohnrock (691) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Poured from 12 ounce bottle bought as part of mix six pack at Hattingís Supermarket, tasted on February 6, 2016. Very dark brown/ruby hue, pungent spice/coffee/fruit aroma, taste has a lot of coffee, dark fruit spice and some astringency with the balance somewhat off, and the fruit isnít all that well done. OK but not my favorite beer from Deschutes.

penstemon (224) - Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Pours dark mahogany with orangeish highlights and a light tan head. Aromas of dried plum, black cherry, dark bread, some spice, earthy, burnt sugars, and roasted malt. Taste is dried fruit, especially black cherry, bread, hint of blackberry, toffee, some roasted malt, and low-medium earthy bitterness. Soft, smooth, medium body. Nice. An awesome English style winter ale. Even after finishing a case I was not tired of it. Malty, fruity, nice bitterness, well balanced. Will probably buy at least a 6pack every winter from now on.
