Avery Old Jubilation Ale 8.3%
This winter want pours a deep brown with w beige head of foam. The nose is rich bready malts and enticing spices. I get a spiced fruity banana bread kind of vibe from the aroma.
Medium to full bodied with a round mouthfeel. The taste is rich malts and delicious fruitiness complemented by mild spices. I get grape & pomegranates coupled with nspice and toffee notes. A bit boozy but mostly well balanced. Yum.

Bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors. Dark red body with medium head. Nose is sweet, caramel. nutty. Taste is caramel, plums, dark berries. Nice and spicy. Creamy finish. Good stuff. r464 (2360) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Deep reddish brown with a thin tan head. Malty, nutty, with some sweetness. A bunch of dark fruit (raisin, cherry) without a real hops in the finish. Bricktop86 (847) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Pours dark red with a white head. Aroma is brown sugar, dark fruit and wood. Taste follows nose mybrainhurts (397) - North Dakota, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Aroma of candied fruitcake and molasses. Flavors of dark fruits, aged caramel, and biscuits. Finishes thin and boozy. Not bad but the ending is disappointing.

A decent warmer. Nice dark color, deep red brown and hazy. Scent has some cloves and grassy spice. Sweet scent, but taste didn’t carry that over. Light taste for a warmer. Nice and lifting. Mouth feel is clean. Tap chuckstout (334) - Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Nice color and bubbles, nice earthy minty, raisin burnt sugar character, a bit much alcohol PhatB420 (840) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 26, 2015
12oz bottle into glass. Pours a rich Amber brown. Light white lacing, clings in areas, head is about 3cm. Aroma of cherry cola, dark fruits, oak, rum. Taste of berries, booze guidance, tart apple, ripe cherry. Great seasonal beer. Dark fruits linger afterwards. odannyob (151) - Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Poured from 2 each very cold 12 oz. cans into an english pint glass (the remaining ale kept cold in de can in de fridge) and, my goodness, a near perfect warming ale befitting as befitting the snow beginning to fall.
A full, warm aroma of dark malts; a hardy, reddish-brown color; tastes that satisfy the wintering soul. my take: ENJOY! woodychevy (874) - - DEC 22, 2015
Great for the style. They managed to bring out spicy/ festive notes without adding any actual spice- malts come together beautifully. Pours a pale mahogany. Super nutty. On the sweet side but spice tempers it. Not overlyl boozy for 8.3%. Better than I expected.
