I think its a perfect blend. Color, perfect creamy head, smooth tasting, almost rich like flavor goes down easily with a quick fizz! Probably one of the best speciality Ale's produced. I would buy this year round! nickel (1303) - UKRAINE - MAR 13, 2018

Taste: saturated mix of malts, notes of nuts, caramel and dried fruits. Creamy body.
Long lasting aftertaste.

I have had this beer in many different vintages, though it is great after and 2-3 year cellaring I’m reviewing the one I tried a day of the bottling line. It pours a dark brown/amber with a small tan head. Aromas of light floral and chocolate, toffee, roasty burnt caramel and coffee. A full palate of dark fruits, chocolate malt, caramel, espresso, and some roasted nuttiness. Slightly dry finish, one of the best winter warmers. Aging brings out more bourbon, alcohol, and port flavors. SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 2012 Vintage. Pours ruby with a large beige head. Smells nutty and a bit of toffee. Taste is a bit of mocha with some solid toffee and hazelnutty notes. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Avery Old Jubilation finishes with a bittersweet chocolate note. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 Dark mahogany with big, creamy tan head / Big nose of toffee and raisins / Full, moderately syrupy body with a spritz on the strong finish / Flavors of toffee, raisins, nuts, coffee, wine, and chocolate / Great balance and finish. A stunner from these masters of monster ales.

dark mahogany color, small tn head, good lacing. Aroma is very nutty, notes of hazelnuts, plums, freash baked raisin bread. Wow, i could smell this all day, such a beautiful aroma. Flavour is malty, with again, a good amount of nutty flavours. Lots of hazelnut, and some almond. NIce bready notes in the finish with some ripe fruit. Wow, this is an incredible beeer! I love this!

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.
