Pours a rich brown with a small tan head. Strong malt and caramel laden aroma.Very pleasant. The taste is also strong chewy malt. More caramel, and perhaps a hint of brown sugar. Very faint hop character. It seems almost non-existent. The finish is sweetened malt and perhaps a hint of fruit. Surprisingly good beer, as I didn't have high expectations for this. notalush (5896) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2003
Of course I bought it for the ceramic bottle with Santa on it...duh! And actually, the bottle is much more interesting than the beer contained within it - malty, fruity, bock-ish qualities, but although the flavor is good, it is a little on the thin side, as is the body and finish - some hops balance out the mixture of caramel sweetness - nothing to celebrate about, and the price is totally unjustified, even for the bottle without the beer.

Jubel pours a dark amber (rather than brown) with a slight head and mild effervesence. The aroma is malty with a slight fruity afterthought. The taste is malty, full, and rich, giving a pleasant mouthfeel. Good stuff. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2002
i thought it was pretty good, nice malty sort of charachter, with a nice bitter finish, clean tasting too. It was also quite english in its taste aswell. Aurelius (5436) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2002
Mild malt nose in the bottle, becomes powdery smelling in the snifter. Deep chestnut brown with lacy head. Excessively gimmicky bottle. Parched grain and sorghum flavor. Thin and slightly metallic. I could swear that this was a dunkelweisse, rather than an alt. The bottle just said Jubel, and it differed from alcfron's description of the Jubel bottle, and I was at a quandry whether to rate this as the Jubel Dunkel, since the bottle looked like the Dunkel, with a different label...

Dark amber color. Medium head. Aroma is brown sugar, malts and fruit. A medium bodied dunkel. Malts are roasty, nutty and sweet. Mild hops. Touch of spiciness. Nicely balanced. I mainly bought this beer for the fancy Santa bottle, but it was a definitely drinkable beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. badgerben (5254) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Cloudy brown color with a medium head. Grainy and wheat filled aroma. The flavor is full of rich malts and more wheat with some spice. Damn, I thought this was really quite good! hotstuff (5208) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2003
This brew poured very little head, but it had good lacing on the side of my mug. This beer had carbonation to it. It had a smooth taste with an ever so slight aftertaste. It had a citrusy aroma. To me it had a creamy and smooth mouth feel to it. Some bitterness, but not overwhelming. Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2004
Reddish brown coloured. Malty aroma. Smooth malty flavour with roasty and sweet notes. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2004
Miature hootch jug bottle with cute handle. Liquid smoke aroma is quite sharp initially but mellows by the end of the bottle to be quite agreeable. Reddish brown with a very good off-white head. Body is on the thin side of average. Flavour starts thin compared to the initial aroma but builds through the glass. A light effervescence on the tongue. A light bodied lightly spiced and smoked offering.
