COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Super Jubel was discovered by accident two decades ago when a clumsy burglar didnt realize the weight of his stolen keg of Jubelale. He dropped it outside to freeze in the seasons sub-zero temperatures only to be discovered the next morning by Gary Fish, Deschutes Brewery owner. More than half the liquid in the keg had frozen and the remaining beer was a very cold, highly concentrated Jubelale on steroids. It was so good that the brewers set about recreating it, coming up with an annual Super Jubel that is aged in oak barrels. A limited amount has been available on tap every year, 2010 will be only the second time that the brewery has bottled up this brew for sale. The first time it was available by bottle was a special millennium edition in 2000.

ACHops (1527) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 1, 2012
22oz bottle from Beerhive Pub in SLC. Bottle says best after 1/29/11. Pours super dark amber with a slight golden tint. Medium mocha head that fades somewhat quickly. Aroma is... wow. Rich bourbon, licorice, leather, molasses all jump out. Taste is big, dark caramel malts with brown sugar sweetness, a hint of vanilla, and just enough hops for balance. Not that different from Jubelale, just cranked up rich malts, extra abv, and the barrel aging that gives it all those wonderful notes. Thinner body than youre expecting from the smell. Its hard to be neutral about this one - this is one of my favorite beers ever. The only negative Ill throw out there is that Deschutes will apparently only make this every 10 years. Its way too good for that and should join their once per year reserve series with Abyss, Black Butte XX*, etc. Or at least every other year like theyre doing with The Dissident.

Bottle share. Caramel aroma, kind of flat pour, small ring of bubbly head. Taste continues with the caramel, pit fruit, sweet. Kind of sticky.

Sarlacc83 (2187) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2016
Bottle A: Mahogany body, cappuccino head, lacing. N: Toffee, raisin, oxidation, burnt brown sugar, mintiness, some caramel, pecan, and minerality. T: Very sweet, but not cloying. The oxidation helps. M: Medium body, no alcohol, crisp carbonation. O: Very nice. Doing pretty well with 6 years of age on it. But I like the 2000 more.

PartyFowle (954) - - APR 3, 2015
Bottle. A vigorous pour begets a one-finger soap bubble head the color of ginger. The liquids too dark to see through except when held to the light. Clear and effervescent. Red wine and cola in color. In the nose: vanilla, cola, burnt brown sugar, raisins, and bourbon. Noticeable alcohol heat. Flowery hops. Spicy yeast. In the flavor: Sweet prunes, vanilla, pepper, and caramel. Dr. Pepper! Super hot; you can feel the alcohol heat travel all the way down to the stomach. The slightest hint of roasted malts. Bitterness clings to the back sides of the tongue. Medium body, medium carbonation. Smooth, buttery. Wow.

(bottle - 22 oz - 2010 vintage) Murky copper pour with a thin tan head. Fruity and malty aroma with lots of caramel and still some good alcohol. Lots of different fruits in the flavor with a middle that seems to be a combination of toffee and caramel. Finishes sweet and fruity.

Sat on this for 5 years before cracking it open. Creamy first impression, drinks more like a quadruppel than anything else I can think of.
