Bottle to pint. Deep red pour with a touch of off white head. Big nose of roasted nuts and dark fruit. Taste is similar with some nice body. Alcohol is well-hidden. Captures the idea of a winter seasonal perfectly.

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - JAN 7, 2004
Nice body and beautiful color (dark red). Nice bittering hops, too, if you like that sort of thing. First thing that came to my mind was a dark IPA, which is sort of an oxymoron. Good stuff but certainly not the best beer in their line up.

Gustav1996 (333) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Poured red/brown with a small egg-white head. Aroma: malt, hops grain. Taste was very much the same. Thinnish body. Overall: not one I would buy again. It is not a bad beer, just not for me. I can not say I picked-up on too much of what the other rates state. May have had a bad bottle or I just had a beer too many before I tried this.

Nice color and bubbles, nice earthy minty, raisin burnt sugar character, a bit much alcohol

foduck (330) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2003
Very peculiar character. Fruit and spice in aroma, malty sweetness, some toffee in the flavor. Pretty good beer. Alcohol is well-hidden. Complex malts.

Bungalo22 (326) - Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA - OCT 30, 2008
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.

kitschy (326) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 24, 2009
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.

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.
