Deschutes offers up a beautiful, dark ruby brew that looks a lot like a red wine. The head on Jubeale is beige and provides a strikingly good contrast with the deep color of the ale.
The smell is that of fruit and the flavor is a well-balanced marriage of hops and malt. It has nuances of fruit leather and chocolate. There are other layers of flavor that, upon reflection, I think I have to go back and have another one at a later date. This drink really comes across with a rich and complex character. It finishes with a slightly bitter caramel taste. A very warm and inviting mouthfeel.
An excellent choice for a winter warmer.

On tap at the Local Taphouse.
Pours a red colour, bit of haze. Head is off-white, webbed lace but sticks to the glass. Looks nice.
Smells like banana esters, with some dry sweet spice, nutmeg and vanilla. Touch of raisin. Could have more richness and more robustness, but decent.
Taste is chocolatey. Dry cocoa with some toffee, sultanas and some dried orange peel. Not much spice; more fruit and lots of chocolate. Not bad.
Full body, nicely textured. Slightly dry on the back.
Nice beer; have had better spiced Winter seasonals though, generally better because of more spice.
Serving type: on-tap
