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.

I liked it, but it’s not my favorite seasonal of Northwest beer.

Pours a deep dark brown with good carbonation and a 1 finger brownish head. Has a nice deep toasty cereal and bready aroma, with hints of of molasses. Taste starts with that same warm maltiness with the tones of toasty and bready flavor with hints of biscuit throughout. Finishes with a crisp but not overbearing bitterness that warms the palate. Mouthfeel is a wet and moist feeling with no dryness. Overall this is a great winter ale and one I would go back to again and again

A nice red-brown garnet color with soapy lace. Smells of caramel malt, brown sugar, light spices and fruit. Medium body and course with mild spiced flavors like chicory, caramel malt, kilned grains, fruit, earthy and leafy hops. A nice winter celebration ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The least interesting beer I’ve had from Deschutes since the brewery entered the Wisconsin market this year. Everything is just sorta average. Scent has a bit of fruit, maybe cherries?, the body is light, and the finish has a bit of bitterness. Other than that, with apologies to Gertrude Stein, there’s not a lot of there there.

This dark reddish brown beer has a slightly sweet aroma like fruit cake. It has a smokey but still slightly sweet undertone. A very good holiday option.

AgentAle (794) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2014
Aroma is citrus, orange, clove and sweet malts. Taste is a light sweet graininess matched with a fresh bitterness. Well balanced overall. Body is a cloudy orange/gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

furthur (213) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle, deep brown Amber, foam leaves quick. Aroma is malty with dark fruit. Flavor is roasty, then lightly malty, with a hint of cinnamon and citrus rind. Palate is light, smooth, carbonation adequate. Finish is sweet. Overall excellent!

Livendadream (129) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Btl pours a hazy dark reddish brown with a big frothy tan head that lingers leaving lots of lace on glass. Aromas of minerals, dark malt,brown sugar,dates, and cola. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel and earthy hops. Medium body, adequate carbonation, tingling mouthfeel and a dry slightly bitter finish. Nice easy drinking winter ale.

Barnoloid (264) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle pour. This is a festive treat! Pours a dark red, almost to brown color. Thin off white head with a small amount of lacing. The nose is English toffee and light clove. The spices here complement rather than overwhelm the palate. Definitely a complex winter seasonal - enough boozy heat and spice to make this a winter warmer but with plenty of other layers that allow for more balance and other pieces to fall into place. The toffee notes add a sweetness and brevity across the dark maltiness.

markas101 (1903) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
12 oz bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada via Zyn. Hazy dark amber, prune raisin aroma without being overly ’Chrstmasey’. Balanced flavour, thick, with more prune and clove then broken up with a nice resin bitterness.
