Appearance: Jubel 2010 pours a dark caramel color with deep ruby highlights. A little over a finger of caramel colored head, which reduces to a bit of fine lacing.
Smell: I've got to say, let this beer warm up when you drink it. A ton of intricacies come out as it warms. A touch of roasted malts, dark fruits, raisin, fig, a bit of vanilla, and quite a bit of woodiness that has to come from the pinot barrels.
Taste: Some maltiness up front, then raisin, fig, a touch of vanilla, all overlayed by an awesome oakiness with a hint of cherry. Very complex, sorting through it takes some time but is well worth the effort.
Mouthfeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied, smooth and creamy. Nothing to complain about whatsoever. For being 10% ABV it really holds its own in the drinkability category as well. With all those other flavors, the small amount of booziness is easily missed.
I plan on buying 2-3 more of these and letting them sit for a while. This is an exemplary, complex beer that should get better with more age.
