COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spiced Old Ale aged in Cabernet Barrels.

Jubilee, spiced Old Ale, is a holiday beer with the aromas of caramel and freshly-baked banana bread. The spices used in this full-bodied Winter Warmer combined with a hint of molasses are reminiscent of the complex flavors of gingerbread.
Aging our 2011 Jubilee in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels brings out dried cherry undertones and a rich vanilla character to further add to the depth and complexity of this delicious holiday treat. Whether you choose to drink this beer during this holiday season or age it for another special occasion, enjoy it! Because ’tis the season for Jubilation.

I liked the Jubilee because of the fruit cake notes that came through while also adding a nice undercurrent of spice and winter warmth. Add in some age and the tannic qualities of the wine barrels and another dimension is added. All three working together. A great beer to open as a Christmas present.

Bottle. Pours with a hazy deep wooden brown hued body with a medium sized and mostly lasting off-white head with good lace. Aromas are of port soaked banana bread. Red wine, tannin, currants, very over ripened bananas, earthy, peppery, wooden, vanilla, vinous, brandy soaked raisins, mild nuttiness, warm oak, baked bread. Flavors are of strong red wine, medium raisinated, baked bread, tannin, rich caramel, toffee, dark fruits, currants, raisins, over ripened banana. Tastes pretty clean. Raw pepper and rich oak. Odd having an uninnoculated cab barrel aged beer. Rich and the wine probably dominates a bit much, but tasty. Fuller carbonation, big, tannic, warming body. Very nice and warming, french toasted oak character (smells exactly like the cab barrels do when they are gamma jetted with hot water). Rounded. Very light spice left over from the original beer. Very nice to drink.
