Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed from notes.

A- Finger khaki head. Reddish brown color with moderate carbonation. Creamy head with long retention. Nice looking beer.

S- Brewing spices and spicy hops. Nice warm smell.

T- Hoppy and creamy. The spices come in late in a zesty way.

M- Thick bodied and the creamy head is nice. Nice feel. Finishes bitter.

O- Wonderful beer. I love this brewery and was not disappointed.

355ml bottle poured into tulip 19/3/12

A hazy ruby brown with a two finger tan head that slowly falls to a finger of foam that leaves lots of unorganized lace well down the glass

S malty spice but I can't quite place it, fennel and nutmeg?? some nutty toffee and a little booze

T nougat and toffee with what I smell, there's some hops I didn't smell at first creating some balance, pretty decent for the style

M leaves the mouth a little slimy and slick, just enough carbonation to give it some life, spicy aftertaste

O pretty solid stuff but not mind blowing, nice blend of spice but I never was certain of what spices I was tasting

I gotta thank chickenm for knocking a want off my list, would make a good industry standard for the style. its spiced well and quite mellow, something I'd drink again if available in my neighborhood

12 oz bottle served in a pint glass

A - Fairly opaque brown with a ruby tint. Generous 2 finger tan head with excellent retention and great lacing.

S - Very enticing aroma of dark fruits, malt, caramel, earthy peat, and some herbal hops.

T - A mostly mid palate adventure that starts sweet malt in the front then heads to the middle and back with biscuit breadiness and and little spice and bitterness. A bit of caramel and chocolate notes and a touch of cherry and dark fruits. Quite delicious.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, a bit creamy.

O - Everything about this beer is good. Looks like a saint, smells like nice childhood memories, and tastes like warm pie. This is a winter nostalgia beer.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass. Looking at it first glance it actually looks a chocolatey brown color, but when held up to the light it changes a bit. It's still dark, like a hearty brown ale, but there are lighter brown to amber highlights. Good clarity and a decent sized off white colored head with better than average lacing.

Smell is very good. It's spicey, but not overdone. I find that many winter warmers get spicey and then they don't smell like beer at all, Jubelale doesn't have that problem. Caremel, some dark dehyrated fruits, and chocolate. Good Malt backbone with some nice citrusey notes.

Good taste as well, like the smell there are some caremel and Chocolate tones. Lots of dark dehydrated fruites (mostly raisons) and some slight spicey and earthy hops. VERY tasty, a good quality beer.

Mouthfeel is very good. Full bodied with a slight earthy tones. Good carbonation level. It has great sweetness and a nice bitter finish. A really well rounded beer, I like it a lot. Thanks chugalug06 for the nice extra.
