Our winter ale has a gorgeous mahogany hue, a hint of hazelnuts, and a finish reminiscent of mocha and toffee. No spices, just a perfect blend of five specialty malts. Cellarable for 3+ years.

Ah, an American-made English Strong Ale that isn't spiced to all hell. Old Jubilation pours garnet brown with an off-white head. Excellent foam retention and lacing. Malty toast aromatics. Fat malt-forward flavors with a hint of creaminess. Nutty and toffee-like. Rich texture yet it isn't too heavy. Some lingering warmth. This is a modern brewing Winter classic that hopefully won't ever go out of style.

Pours a clear dark amber with a thin off white head. BOld aroma of caramel, toffee, and sweet spices. Thin body. Taste is a mix of sweet spices with hints of nuts and dark fruits. Fairly light and flavors are not that bold. Good but not great. Finishes with a slight alcohol warmth.

Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can poured into a glass. Translucent mediu/dark brown with lots of floaters. Aroma is aroma is caramel, medium body, lower carbonation, and small-bubble lacing. Taste is caramel malt, some toffee, and spicy malt.

Feeling the seasonality on this, this hearty ale would be best during some long blizzards (alas, consumed in June); raisins, prunes, bread, warming

erikaraeb (308) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2017
Cloves and sweet malt on the nose and taste. Wintery feel overall, would be warming in such a season. Somewhat watery for the bold flavour; could benefit from a touch more thickness. Surprised to see the "no spices" part of the description.

12floz can, COD: 10.20.2016, $1.50 and poured into a pint glass. I got a lot of sediment from the pour and little foam. Many particles are held in suspension, and at the bottom of auburn-brown body. Aroma and palate intertwine that is simply characteristic of toffee. It’s pretty good.

Above avg appearance.. nice color, nice head. Metallic malty aroma. Taste is syrupy, malty, biscuit, molasses. It’s alright.

alteregoo (1784) - Kalisz, POLAND - MAY 9, 2017
Piana nieduża, szybko opada do firanki. Barwa mocnej herbaty, opalizująca. W zapachu karmel zahaczający o toffi, melasa, orzechy laskowe. W smaku podobnie, dość słodkie, ziołowe, pojawia się także skojarzenie z masłem orzechowym. Goryczka średnia, tytoniowa, niskie wysycenie, lekko oleiste, lekko wyklejające w odbiorze.

Bardzo przyjemny English Strong Ale, dośc klasyczny, zładnie wkomponowanym, lekko rozgrzewającym alkoholem. Wydaje się podobne do Coopers Vintage Ale, bez porównania zaś miażdży popularne Innis & Gunn Original czy Young’s Special London Ale.

Korcz (3390) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 19, 2017
Jakaś dziwna lukrecjowa nuta się plącze. Karmel, melasa, dość dużo ciała. Nieskomplikowane i całkiem przyjemne.
