A dark, malty celebration ale with layered flavors and beautifully balanced hopping. Jubelale pours deep garnet in color, medium bodied, with notes of chicory, earth, spice and fruit. To beer lovers, it’s like Yule fire and family. Can't go wrong with Deschutes. This festival winter ale is good!

Wood nose. Clear chestnut, thin head. Wormwood, bark, maple syrup, a touch of DMS. Light to medium body. hman43 (1955) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2018
Dark amber with red hues and an off white head. Malty rich, biscuity, toffee and herbal. barrelagedluv (89) - Pittsburg, California, USA - JAN 25, 2018
Pours a burnt mahogany color into a shaker pint, with a decent head and minute carbonation. Aroma of chestnuts and chocolate milkshake. Taste is supremely malty and rich, notes of Arabic coffee bean and nutmeg spice. Finish is long creamy like s’mores. This Winter warmer represents the best of British style pub beers, but with much more depth and nuance. Another ball hit out of the Park by a great brewery.... cheers Deschutes! eruizgarcia (372) - - JAN 10, 2018
Poured into standard pub pint glass. Pretty average amber color with standard duty head. Nutty and sweet, good winter beer!

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2017 Mahogany in color with a foamy white head. Raisin and molasses taste with a bit of mulled spices added in. Lots of flavor, but still smooth and drinkable especially for a Christmas ale. HourGlass13 (1110) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2017
Poured up a dark mahogany color, with a thick tan head. Aroma is complex and includes bread pudding, spices, prunes, with toffee. Taste follows suit, with dark fruits and lots of malts. Nice balance between hops and toasted malts. Mild spice finish. Medium body. A classic winter sipper, one of my new favorites. freekyp (2485) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2017
Deschutes lays down a mother of a winter beer here, with a malty nose featuring dark fruit and leathery notes alongside a piney hop presence. Multi-layered and complex, Jubelale uses winter spices in a rather subtle way, melding them artfully with the base beer. Fullbodied with a mild warming presence as it fades. Thus is the taste if holiday bliss. Brettsky06 (536) - Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 17, 2017
Pours a dark red/amber color. Herbal aromas. Earthy and caramel taste. Really lingers on the palate BlackHaddock (8090) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2017
Draft 16 oz pour in the Stadium Brewery, Aliso Viejo. Dark bodied, brown with a red hue, beige head. Semi-sweet with plenty of malty goodness throughout. Both fruity and earthy below the malty molasses.
