Bottled. Pours a dark coppery amber with a persistent and lacy tan head. The caramel in the aroma is apparent at arms length, along with the citrus hops and a bit of alcohol at closer range. Medium body and carbonation. More caramel and citrus in the taste, with a resinous finish.

12oz - BB 01/12/05 - thanks Dukefan - Mild aroma of carmel, chocolate, dark fruit, fig, and a touch of spice. Pours muddy brown with no head or lacing. Flavor matches aroma. Palate is barely there. I think this one is past its prime. Thin and not as flavorful as the aroma. Makes me want a freshy.

KAME (160) - California, USA - NOV 12, 2006
2006 bottle. Pours a deep reddish brown, with a medium frothy head. Aroma is nutty and malty, and slightly metallic. Flavor is of banana Laffy Taffy, caramel, ending in a nice piney bitter finish. Body is nice and filling. This a pretty good brew, and makes a nice winter warmer.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2009 Pours a deep garnet with clarity; wonderful head, moderately full, mostly lasting, creamy/pillowy, light tan, and some nice, soapy lacing. Nose is toffee, toasty almonds, hints of chocolate, and some pine hops and light roast notes in the back; rather pleasant. Flavor does not match the nose; toffee and almonds with some light dried fruit notes with plenty of piney/earthy hops and a medium-high bitterness. The bitterness lingers through the finish with the pine and leaves a long tingling on the tongue. Palate is medium bodied, moderate carbonation, and a creamy, dryish feel. Good winter warmer, but could improve with some aging. The malt richness is lacking a bit leading the hops to dominate more than I would like. Nothing spectacular, but well done beer for the cold months in Colorado.

12-oz, 06. Pours a deep ruddy brown with a swirl of tannish head that falls to film pretty much by the time you walk to wherever youre going to sit and drink the thing. Nice toasty malt on the nose--this carries through to the palate in a big way. Medium body, low-medium carb. On the palate, theres that toasty malt again, maybe a little very subdued toffeeishness. Mostly just crisp roasty flavors, though. Enormously appealing. The finish hookslides into a big bubble of earth and herbal bitterness. I dig what unclematties saying about tobacco, but that wouldnt have been the first word Idve used to describe it. This is a really fine effort, and I honestly cant remember past vintages well enough to know if this ones different. Regardless, cheers to Deschutes for another solid achievement.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Gift from asteele8. 2006 Vinage. Dark reddish-brown in color. Impressive almond colored head. Aroma of malts, nuts, caramel, some pine. Very smooth texture and a balanced palate. Very sweet. Light flavors of choclate, tobacco. Great ale to just sit back and enjoy a sweet maduro cigar with.

ABUSEDGOAT (2656) - California, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Dark amber. Aroma is flowery and spicy hops with caramel and hints of chocolate and darker fruits. Unlike most of their other English beers, this one felt much more English... but not 100% genuine either.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - NOV 4, 2006
2006 12 oz bottle. Pours a nice red brown with a creamy head. Aroma has hints of chocolate, spices, hops, and coffee. Flavor is very similiar in addition to sweet toasted carmel notes. Nice dry hop finish. 2006 Jubelale far exceeds previous years attempts.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2009 This is a nice Strong amber ale, very malty and smooth. Mix of holiday spices with some summer fruit elements that do very well in masking a somewhat strong alcohol bite. Can taste some pine tree notes in there as well. Liked the hop kick too. Strong, complex malt essence. Another fine offering from what is becoming one of my favorite brewers. Re-rating a 2006 I have had sitting around for 1+ year now. Absolutely incredible. Flavors have softened but become richer and more indecernable. Excellent drink.

TheLeadDog (101) - Kent, Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2006
To me this is a Brown Ale as it looks and tastes that way. Great rich flavor of chocolate, carmel, toffee and roasted malt. Thick rich head that lasts a long time. I look forward to anything Deschutes puts out, seasonal or otherwise.
