COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Potus non frangit ieiunium." - “Drinking does not break the fast“- an ecclesiastical principle to which strong beer owes its origin. The clever monks and castle owners created their strengthening refreshment for the long 40-day fast period before the Easter celebration. Jubilator is a full double-malt beer, which one recognizes in Bavaria by the “-ator" suffix.

Pours a brown color. Nose is dense caramel tones, dark malts, hints of nuts. A bit simple, but decent.

Zlotta (281) - Bonn, GERMANY - APR 23, 2015
0,5 l bottle from P&M Getränke, best before 14/9/2015. Crystal clear, very dark ruby with a medium large, frothy, very slowly diminishing, tan head. Malty aroma of raisins, prunes, candy sugar and molasses. Rather sweet taste of raisins, prunes, candy sugar and molasses. Medium long, quite hoppy and bitter finish. Medium to full body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Solid doppelbock with a relatively bitter note in the end (a result of the use of hop extracts?). Not outstanding though, just a nice beer.

Beerhunter111 (10298) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 22, 2015
Dunkles kastanienbraunes Bier mit einer ordentlichen beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, sehr getreidig, leicht alkoholisch. Geschmack röstmalzig, sehr getreidig, kaum hopfig, stark typischer Bock!

Idiosynkrasie (4797) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear, ruby red glowing, dark brown colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Sweet-ish dark malty aroma has notes of toffee, nuts, caramel, marzipan, hints of cherry and sherry. Taste is moderately sweet dark malty, notes of toffee, caramel, nuts, marzipan, milk chocolate, hints of cherry, sherry, Marsala, dry, minimally herbal hoppy overtones; smooth, silky, soft palate, well matching, gentle carbonation. Rich and complex, superbly balanced. Wow! Nice to see what a "traditional" can offer if adequately "crafted".

Rispetto massimo dello stile, malto sopra tutto e alcol ben nascosto. Ottima con piatti della tradizione bavarese.
