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 (1101) - 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 (2469) - 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

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. IncomT73 (12) - - DEC 12, 2017
Seasonal. Powerful malt flavor. Not my style.

12 oz bottle poured into chilled pint glass. Ring in the holidays with this seasonal offering from the great Deschutes Brewery in Bend, OR. I always look forward to buying a six-pack from Trader Joe's or 12-pack from Safeway at this time of year. Not your every day beer, but packed with ample malt, carmel, and spice flavors that are well-balanced with top-quality hops. A classic winter warmer from a legendary American craft brewery. jsmerig (1721) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2017
Pours a deep brown with a tan head. aroma of fig and hardwood. Taste is woody and nutty. Earthy bitterness keeps it from going overly sweet. Pleasant. Thicker mouthfeel. Benzai (16924) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 8, 2017
Draught @ Zeezicht. Opaque murky red brown color, medium sized beige head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, light hints of red fruit, sweet red currant, brown malts and caramel malts. Taste malts, caramel, dark malts, dark fruits, sweet raisins and blue grapes with a strong malt bitter finish. Decent to medium body and carbonation. Quite nice.
