Very peculiar character. Fruit and spice in aroma, malty sweetness, some toffee in the flavor. Pretty good beer. Alcohol is well-hidden. Complex malts.

Poured into pint glass from bottle, dark mahogany with toffee nose and light carbonation. Medium bodied, malty with caramel finish. Great to have a winter ale not doctored up with spices.

Let the doors of Christmas open up, wow. Pours a dark amber with a nice head that recedes quickly. It smells of Christmas spices and caramel. On first taste it is also quick spicy. The spices never quick leave your lips or palate. It is also quite easy to pick up both the aroma and flavor of nuts and toffee. As I said the spice sticks on your palate for a nice warming feel. A very good seasonal.

Dark brown with amber highlights. Rich, smooth beer. If your bartender confuses your Jubilation with a Boulevard Nutcracker, your beer is the one with the delightful aroma and thick palate.

dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 22, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2010 Avery Old Jubilation Ale Pours thick oily brown with a copper tinge and almost no head. Nearly no lacing. Sweet aroma of alcohol, cherries, barley wine, and yummy. Smells divine. Flavor is somewhat subdued in comparison to the aroma but darn nice anyway. Syrupy with a slightly bitter finish and a lasting alcohol burn. Sweet caramel malt and some dried fruits. Damn good. Avery rocks.

Pours a slightly hazy brown with minimal head that dissipated fairly fast. Aroma is black liquorice toffee and cinnamon dark fruits. Taste follows the aroma with a slight molasses note. Very smooth but a bit of booze coming thru.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a thin off white head. The aroma is enticing with a nice fruity aroma, with some interesting spices and plenty of malts. The flavor is really smooth. Caramel, malts, light chocolate and coffee. Excellent winter brew.

Mahogany body with light tan head. Toasted coffee and chocolate nose. Light maltiness with a slight roasted malt bitterness in the finish.

My first from Avery: enjoyable, but not overwhelming. Dark in color (deep mahogany, maybe) with matching dark flavors: hops, sweet malt, a little spice on the back of your tongue. It has a distinctly English vibe to it. Definitely deceptive with the alcohol, I wouldnt have put this a hair above 5%. An enjoyable evening beer.
