look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz poured to a pint glass.

A- Ruby, dark brown, plum color with mahogany shades. Two finger head and a creamy, medium lace on the glass.

S- Milk chocolate and sweetness reminiscent of french vanilla ice cream and vanilla bean. A soft sweetness underlined with aromas of fluffy white biscuits and butterscotch. Light dark fruits and a little cherry on the tail end.

T- Chocolatey malts, chicory, and a Hershey syrup sort of sweetness. Some yeast and breads with creamy dark fruit and caramel. Milky textures that match the tartness of dark fruit similar to cranberry, round out the finish.

MF- A little creamy, but a touch thin, still some body mixed with a dry finish. Drinks a bit like Hershey's syrup for me. Still easy to drink.

O- Great beer for the Pacific NW winters and a solid contribution to the slew of winter ales. Wish it was bolder. This beer would be superb with a higher OG, or even better barrel aged.

Deschutes Jubelale

12oz bottle. Pours a deep copper/amber color with a slightly off white head and a fine display of lacing. Aroma of barley, brown sugar, and toffee. In the taste, robustly malty leaving a strong impression of chocolate. Somewhat sweet, as there is little in the way of hop bitterness. Nice dry cocoa flavor and very light spice notes. Medium bodied feel with a good amount of carbonation. Overall, a tasty winter warmer, exceptional for the colder months.

Poured a 2011 into pint glass, regular 1 finger head, light amber color, plenty of carbonation bubbles. Lacing that followed all through out beer.

Smells of citrus hops, slight malty sweetness. Maybe a pinch of some chocolate as well.

You can taste woodsy hops up front followed by minor malt sweetness. The beer holds a creaminess that lingers well after you have a sip, which is a nice feel and intensifies the flavors which are not so apparent at first.

Mouth feel is the lighter side of a medium and again the creaminess does wonders for the hidden tastes.

Over all, decent winter ale, my first loves for winter ales are celebration and Brrrr, so big competition. I do enjoy the creaminess and the unusual lingering of taste that comes after a sip, I think I'll stick to my fav's! I would recommend it though!!

I can't wait every year to get the new release of the Jubelale winter warmer...I really enjoy this beer year after year and this year is no different.

I am skipping the standard on this...This beer taste with hops and crispness. There is a little burnt caramel that is great. I think this beer is a must try. I know it will be in fridge multiple times this winter.
