Well, it's winter and what better to drink than another winter warmer? I don't think I've had one winter warmer that I've disliked. This will be the first Deschutes beer that I've had since drinking a year old Abyss (2010) and a two year old Black Butte (XXI) so this will obviously not be at that par. Still, this is a good beer.
The head on this is lovely. It forms a bit slowly, becomes a creamy blanket on top, is tan in color, and a fair amount of it stays on top throughout drinking. Lacing is good. I can tell when I took each gulp. The beer is clear and a reddish copper color. It looks delicious
There's a dominant fruity smell. Dark fruits like raisins. There's also a strong booziness to it but it is not off-putting. There's a sweetness from the fruits plus a sort of cookie sweetness. Bit of coffee too. A tad bit of piney hops.
Fruity, raisiny sweetness along with a bit of white sugar. Hoppy bitterness is very faint though present and it adds some pine flavor. It has a sort of raisin cookie and toasty bread flavor. It's a tad boozy too but nothing that dissatisfies.
Jubelale is pretty darn drinkable with a lighter medium body. It has decent carbonation that breaks up the smoothness a bit.
Nothing really exceptional about this beer but nothing to complain about. It's another good winter warmer.

Pours a deep amber/ruby color with a thin, tan (almost yellowish) head. Minimal lacing. No noticeable carbonation.
A very sweet with a bit of spice with a tinge of cola. Dark fruit notes, bitter cherries and fig spring to mind. Light brown sugar and molasses and a hint of hazelnut.
Beautifully balanced between bitter and sweet. A rush of slightly tart, dark fruit up front with dates and cherries. Sweetness brought to you by molasses with a bit of nice spicing that I can't seem to put my finger on. Tasty, this one is.
Smooth and super easy to drink. Medium bodied. Fizzy. Sweet finish.
Another fantastic offering from Deschutes. Easy to drink and loaded with character. Definitely worth picking up!
