I waited to open this beer until well after the "best after" date of 1/29/11. This has been sitting in my cellar since I first bought a few in February 2010 when it was released.

Pours a deep crimson/hazelnut color with a small 1/2 inch beige head that fades to absolutely nothing. Tiny spots of lace randomly left on the glass on the drink down. Smells of dark fruits, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, oak. Tastes much like the smell with plum, cherry, burnt sugar, toffee. A wine like bitterness on the finish from the barrel aging. Slight alcohol warming in the throat after each sip. Carbonation is light with a medium body. This beer sort of coats the mouth after each sip. Overall, this is a good beer that is a rare treat seeing as it is touted as being only brewed once a decade. I have 3 more of these in the cellar with access to more bottles in the future. I can't wait to see how much better this beer will get with some age on it.

Dark brown/maroon color with a light khaki head.

Nose is big rich creamy carmel with sweet undertones of coconut and creamy whiskey.

Mouthfeel is rich, viscous and well balanced.

Flavors follow nose with rich carmel, toffee, sweet creamed coffee and creamy rich whiskey/malty tones. Some cooked stone fruit and cooked banana/clover character.

Finish is creamed bitter coffee. Flavor profile was a bit sweeter in earlier tastings. This remains a very nice drink and likely at its peak now, 4/11.

excellent excellent beer. much more complex than the standard jubel ale, and in fact an entirely different animal. pours a mostly clear brassy color with a dim red glow and a medium sized tan head. smells acidic a little bit, and fruity a little bit. this is a lat forward beer with notes of caramel, butterscotch, and dark fruit. flavor is very similar to the nose, but you can really feel the alcohol here. the wine doesnt invade the flavor as much as i thought it might, but it is there more in the feel, which is very lightly carbonated (this is 2 years old now...). medum body, boozy and tannic to a degree in the finish, artfully smooth. rare and expensive (from what im told), it was a pleasure to try this one. deschutes big beers are all wonderful, and this is one of the best of the lot. i look forward to the next one in another 8 years!

Thanks to bmanning for sharing this at a tasting a while back.

Pours a dark brown with crimson hues. Tan head and a bit of lacing. Smells of caramel, sweet malt, some dark cherries, and a bit of bourbon. Good amount of chocolate as well. Taste is sweet and dry. Chocolate is pretty strong along with a nice cherry flavor. Fairly full bodied with good carbonation and low heat. Good drinkability.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a hazy mahogany with a very modest head that dissolves to a ringlet though it leaves some legs and dots of lace

Smell: Bourbon-soaked prune, Pinot Noir (cherry-nuanced grape) and caramel, with undertones of fusel alcohol

Taste: The Bourbon-soaked prune and Pinot Noir flavors jump out at the forefront and are joined by the caramel before that hops appear, at mid-palate, to add some balance; after the swallow, the alcohol becomes more apparent, as does the caramel, which lingers, in conjunction with the fruit flavors into the finish and beyond

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with low carbonation

Overall: A lot of complexity that befits an ale brewed once in a decade; still tastes a bit young so it will be interesting to see how it develops over the next few years, though I don't have a spare bottle to make that judgment myself

Sharing a lot in common with Scottish Strong Ales and English Strong/Old Ales, this hoppy version weaves what's best about those into an American signature in hop flavor, bitterness, and dryish finish.

Pouring a true mahogany color and carrying a modest haze, the beer forms a terse lightly tanned head that struggles through about the first half of the session. Low on lace, the beer shows stickly legging- giving a brandy-like appearance.

Molassas and a plethera of fruits define the nose. Apples, cherries, dates, figs, give a melded scent of fruitcake, rum, and candied malts. Surprisingly, the citrus and pine notes from hops take somewhat of a backseat to the weight of the malts.

Syrup sweetness and estery fruitiness continue its dominance throughout the taste. Rum-soaked fruitcake, port wine, and balancing orange zest and spruce (both from hops) round out the complex taste.

Malty rich from start to finish, the early creaminess makes an even transition to a full and bolsterous mid palate before a sudden and unexpected dry-ish finish. Though not completely dry, the beer's end gives an airy and evaporative feel to accompany the alcoholic warmth and minty taste. A long linger of malt sweetness follows well into the next sip.

An extremely solid ale of any sort. The fruity notes make me think English; the malt complexity, Scottish; and the hops, American. But the blend and balance here is superb and a joy to sip.

Thanks BigBlueBeerGuy!

Bomber from Whole Foods for $12. Into a tulip, the beer pours a dark but perfectly clear amber, and in the glass it's a near-impenetrable cherry skin red. A small tan head tops the dark body, slowly receding to a small cap.

It smells of dates, plums, figs - the dark fruit aromas are prominent without overwhelming the senses - and there's a slight vinous quality along with some molasses. The aroma doesn't blow me away like some of their other Reserve Series beers; it's pleasant but muted.

On the palate it's much bolder, molasses, roasted malt, spice and dark fruit melding together harmoniously with a slight oaky and vinous backbone. My guess is that this is a blend of barrel aged and non-barrel aged beer, as the barrel character isn't particularly strong. The mouthfeel is full and rich, moderate sweetness balanced nicely by tannins, bitterness and faint alcohol. It finishes on a vinous and bitter note, red wine, plum, brown sugar and alcohol lingering on the tongue, amply bitter and roasty. A good beer overall, it met my expectations without necessarily blowing me away. It's worth trying at a very reasonable $12.

Thanks Eric for sharing this one, review from written notes.
Served in a goblet.

It pours a dark brown color, with tan bubbles that cluster to one side. Color is seemingly impenetrable by light, with reddish glints around the edges.

Belgian yeast aromas, dried prune and raisin. Bitter aftertaste, lightly sweet with a dry alcohol tang. Molasses and brown sugar bleed though. Big and burly, light carbonation. Not picking up any barrel character. This is showing it's age with some sherry notes, if you like that sort of thing. Can't say that time is treating this well.

A - Poured out an opaque, dark brown color with a small, tan head of bubbly foam. It left soapy, patchy lace all over the glass.

S - It smelled of bourbon, vanilla and some dark fruits - like raisin and plum.

T - Great flavors. Tons of malty sweetness, chocolate, toffee, vanilla and bourbon. Great balance.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium to full bodied ale with a somewhat dry finish.

D - This is a really tasty brew. I am very glad I got the opportunity to try this one.

thrilled to finally try this one, i let it settle down a touch before i opened up last week. slowly decanted into my trust white birch glass.

pours out a jet black color with only a minimal head that does not stick around too long but what is there is clinging to the sides and nice ans sticky. aroma is warming, lots of boozy notes, vanilla and oak coming through the air very clearly now, really showing off what it can do for sure. a nice and well rounded mix of bourbon, caramel, dark roasted malts, nice hints of toffee, and vanilla and a light brown sugar that seems to pop up in the finish. really nicely blended and a well deserved finish was smooth, silky and full of sweet flavor.

truly a fantastic beer and i am soo happy i have more to sit on to watch this one grow.

A: The pour is a dark mahogany color with a thin off-white head and some surprising lacing on the glass.

S: The nose has a slight oxidation note to it, which actually works somewhat well with the sugary, caramel, and dark fruit notes. There's some noticeable alcohol as well.

T: The flavor is also quite sweet. The caramel and toffee are the most present with the sugar more subdued. Unfortunately, I don't pick up quite as much in terms of fruit, but I do seem to notice some herbal and buttery qualities. Once again, the alcohol is present.

M: The body is medium to full with a moderate level of carbonation.

D: This is a bit too hot for my tastes. Perhaps it might calm down in a few years, but just a couple ounces is fine for now.

Poured from a bottle into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy reddish amber with a finger of off white head that goes away and leaves some lacing.

Smell: Sweet with hints of dark fruit and brown sugar.

Taste: Very sweet with brown sugar and dark fruit notes. Mildly bitter at the finish with some alcohol present.

Mouthfeel: On the thick side of medium body with a dry finish.

Drinkability: This one is just ok. It is very sweet, but it seems like it needs some more spices or something.

Served in a Half Acre shaker pint glass.

Big thanks to hopsbreath and the Support Your Team! BIF for this bottle!

I think I've finally finished taking down the beers from this BIF's haul. Damn. This one pours a hazed ruby topped by a finger or so of tan foam. The nose comprises buttery biscuits, toffee, wheat, rye bread, light vanilla, red grapes, and light cinnamon. The taste is much the same, though the butter is completely dropped and some light cocoa powder joins the fray. The body is a slightly hefty medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a nearly syrupy feel. Overall, a very nice brew, but something seems eerily missing. i can't come close to pinpointing what, exactly, but without it this beer just falls short of greatness. I am still very pleased to have been able to sample it.

Cheers to Schmittymack for this one! Review based on notes. Drank about 3 weeks ago...

Pours a very effervescent chestnut with a pinky of brown head. Flecks of lacing & a touch of head retention

S: Much plummyness & some persimmons

T: Follows the nose, very rich with much dryness & cakeyness up front. Dark cherry & baker's chocolate as this warms, herbal hoppyness, a bit of cinnamon & pears too. Finishes dry,fruitty & cakey, almost pulled a 5.0

MF: Rich, chewy & warming with low carbonation

Drinks easy for the style & abv, but the dryness slows me down a bit too much...

Quite the story behind this brew supposedly this one came around after a drunk patron tried to steal a keg of their Jubelale, evidently the caper couldn't get away with the goods and left the keg outside to freeze. The next day the brewers came in and found the keg and sampled, basically an eisbock version of their standard seasonal and loved it with some fortification. So they brewed a bigger version and it's released every year as Super Jubel and it's only been released in bottles back in 2000 and now in 2010.

Appears a molasses mahogany like hue with deep ruby highlights when held toward the light, the head is a deep tan hue with fine evenly dispersed specks on each side check things out okay. Herbal hops and citrus zest blend in with a touch of holiday spices.

Aroma is exuberant with malt sweetness layers of syrup drizzled over dark overly ripened alcohol soaked dark fruits like plums and raisins. A definite air of charred oak with herbal/mint hop expressions in the finish. Booze is hidden pretty well but the wood used at times give a pine mint expression that must be coming from the hops.

The flavor collides with dark fruit a touch of maple syrup, a mild citrus and herbal hop bitterness, holy malt monster batman! This one also has those backing hops to provide some bitterness for balance, a touch of booze maple syrup tree bark and herbs. Very festive big brew aged on Pinot wine barrels.

Mouthfeel is big bodied a bit cloying better to share this bad boy with some friends, alot of girth with some soothing alcohol tones about it. Carbonation is smooth and mellow, quite a treat definitely a unique experience for me.

Drinkability overall, this one is to be savored with friends around the holidays I hop to have more friends around next time a bottle of this comes my way. From the smallest beer to these bruisers that Deschutes has been releasing, everything from them is so damn drinkable it may be their best attribute overall. I again can't wait to show up at the brew house or one of their brewpub locales and do some sampling with my buddy Geof, who sent me this bottle.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

a - Pours a mahogany reddish brown color with one to two inches of off white head. Moderate carbonation and lacing evident.

s - Smells strongly of dark fruits and oak. Also smells a little bit of vanilla and than hints of alcohol. Very nice.

t - Tastes mostly of dark fruits and oak again. Also some smooth caramel malts. As it warmed up there was some cream or vanilla to it as well.

m - Low carbonation and medium to full body. Smooth and creamy, but a little bit of alcohol warmth.

d - I thought this smelled amazing and the taste was pretty good too. I thought when it warmed up a little some more flavor came out. There was a little bit of alcohol warmth to the taste but it wasn't too bad. Going to hold onto my other bottle for a while and see how this one ages, but worth checking out fresh as well. Might even try and grab another bottle or 2 to add to the cellar.

At the time of this review, this beer is the #18 beer on the "Top Beers - American Strong Ale" list on beeradvocate.com. Served in a tulip.

Beer is brown and hazy with a nice two finger head of small tan bubbles, lots of lacing, moderate to low carbonation, not aggressive looking or overly carbed but nice.

Aroma is huge, I can smell it without picking up the glass. Malty sweet, strong booze.

Beer is sweet and light in body, thinner than expected. Beer has this mild roasty finish, a little dry but good. I'd have it again.

Thanks to smacoly for this beer!

A: Pours a dark brown color with a small golden/tan head on top. Not much retention and spotty lacing.

S: Some vanilla and caramel, a little bit of brown sugar and molasses with hints of dark fruit.

T: Upfront some nice caramel and brown sugar and a little toffee. The back has more of a chocolate and dark fruit flavor, quite nice.

M: Full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Very faint heat from the alcohol, hits when the liquid is in my stomach.

O: A really nice beer. Glad I have another bottle to sit on and see what happens to it.

Poured into Bruery Snifter

Pours a very light layer of light tan head. Settles to a thick ring with a small amount of lace left. Color is a dark copper brown with a ruby hue to it.

Aroma: Mainly malts here. I get some bready and caramel notes, a lot like a bwine. I also get some musky grapes and oak flavors from the penot barrels. It also has some dark dried fruits. Maybe some plum flavors. Brings a little heat as well.

Taste: Big dark dried fruit flavor. Plums, grapes, and molasses. A decent amount of spice flavors. A little bit of alcohol. I get a decent amount of oak, but this beer is still fresh. This beer is definitely malty. Caramel malts stick out the most.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, creamy, and warm. Medium to full bodied with a low to medium amount of carbonation. A little hot on the tongue. Ends malty and dry.

Overall, this is a pretty big beer. A little young yet, but not bad. This beer is going straight to my head. A lot of booze here. Decent drinkability with some nice flavors. I think time will do this beer wonders.

Bomber into a snifter. The brew appears a mahogany color with a khaki cream colored topping. 2 fingers worth of froth appear and slowly fade leaving a full wall of lace. Some ruby coloration is noted when held to the light.

The aromatics are caramel to candy-like with some citrus and fruity notes faintly like alcohol. Some mild toasty grain inclusion is also present. As it warms up, it gets raisony with a mild oxidative note somewhat like cardboard.

The taste includes the previously mentioned notes of raison mixed with a bit of milk chocolate which was not expected. More sips reveal some cardboard oxidation along with a backing of bready to biscuit grains. Somewhat fruity to floral alcohol tries to tie things back together towards the finish. Overall, this is a mild brew for 10%.

This is medium bodied with a modest amount of carbonation. It is not terrible by any means but is really lacking in complexity. To put it bluntly, it is mediocre to lackluster. Perhaps if you were looking for a simple, easy drinking 10% brew you might love this. However, to label a beer as the once a decade ale and then package it with wax and a "best after date" you would think this would have held up a little better after only 3 years.

Bottle shared by Thorpe & Thorpette. Thanks!

The beer appears dark brown colored with a small head that leaves some random lacing on the glass. The aroma offers caramels, oak, booze, fruity malts. Smells nice. The flavor follows suit, with a mild sweetness that never becomes overpowering. Well balanced. Delicious and easy drinking. Beautiful caramel flavor. Alcohol content is well disguised, with just a light, pleasing warmth in the finish. Overall, a terrific beer. Recommended.

Sampled January 2012
A solid pour into my Lost Abbey Teku glass produces an initially three-finger thick, pale-brown / amber tinged, tan colored head. The head leaves some nice, open lacing patterns on the sides of my glass as it subsides. The beer is a dark, concentrated amber-brown color that shows a brilliantly clear, cranberry-juice-red hue when held up to the light. The aroma has a rich, sweet, but complex, concentrated malt character to it that almost approaches a savory quality. Deeply rich, brown bread, toasty grain aromatics also play a dominant role here. The sweet, deeply caramelized malt notes that are found here in the nose almost have a red-wine and oak like character to it; in fact, the red wine character seems to be where most of the sweetness is coming from. The deeply caramelized, Maillard rich brown maltiness is really what dominates the nose though. There is a lot of toasted character to this beer, it is not just malt though, after recognizing it in the flavor, the oak also contributes to the toasted character in the aroma as well.

As the beer first hits my palate it is not that sweet, it has more of a toasted, brown grain character to it, but it does pick up some rich sweetness as it rolls across the palate. The finish has a bitterness / astringency to it that seems a mix of alcohol, hops and dark malt; it even gets a touch more aggressively, almost harshly bitter than I was expecting. Rich, brown bread flavors, mix with brown caramelized malt, a husky whole grain quality, and even some brown cracker like notes; there is a fair amount of almost spicy, whole grain character that usually is contributed by caramelized malts. Ah, I just got it, this beer has been oaked, which explain the astringency and alcohol enhancing spiciness that is in the finish. The oak also contributes a toasted character to it as well as a touch of woody-oak flavors. As the beer warms up a soft fruitiness really becomes more noticeable, this contributes notes of berry like red wine, some concentrated current notes and even some fresh, dark skinned, tannic, red wine grape fruit flavors. There is an almost roasted quality to this beer that seems to be brought out by the toasty malt and the toasted oak character. As the beer warms up it gets less harsh, and quite a bit smoother in the finish. The body is certainly rich and viscous, though I wouldn’t call it overly heavy or anything near cloying (this assumes you were expecting a rich beer to begin with though); this is most definitely a sipping brew, but finishing off this bottle over a slow, long evening is not a chore. There is something about the alcohol and a certain smoothness to the malt character (especially as this warms up significantly) that reminds me of a huge Bock; it isn’t nearly as simplistic as young Samichlause (as there is a lot more complex, toasted, malt character here)

This is quite a bit tastier than I was expecting, for some reason I was resisting cracking this beer open since its release. I don’t know how much it has changed since it was younger, but it certainly hasn’t picked up any noticeable oxidation yet; I can see this ageing quite well, and even doing well with some oxidation.

22oz bottle by way of Meatyard, thx again, poured into some Duvel glasses, split with oglmcdgl.

Jubel 2010 after the whisp from the cap pry came in the glass looking mediumish black with some lighter colors in as well. A nice bright off white foam about a inch and more rose up formed, retreated, left some lace, nice for a 11%er.

Smell is sweet up front with a bunch of brown sugar and other sweetables. Some chocolate. Rye bread pops up with some warming and a bouquet of dark fruit. The pino does not come out.

And Jubel is a malty sonofabitch up front, brown sugar is bursting with some lighter caramel yet no toffee thank god. Big time plum with light vanilla and a smidge of Pino, just barely. For 12 months in the barrel, hardly any, the sweets from the malts and sugars must be big time.

Feel is a big medium with a light carb going for it. The 11% alcohol is nowhere in sight, Carb is light and works pretty well for the style. Glad I split the bottle since I got bored with this towards the end of my 11oz. Not sure what will happen with some age but seems pretty uninspired right now.

Needed a blow-torch and Rambo knife to remove the wax. 10 minutes later this poured a dark reddish/ruby. Head was medium sticky, nice lacing, off white.

Fruitful aroma, very Xmas-y, some 'green' fruit--unripe--aromas.A touch boozy. Vinous a bit.

Nice flavors in this one. None dominate; figs, raisin, plum, persimmon, black walnut and a touch of leather. Starts out sweet, ends with a tinge of dryness.

didn't think I'd drink the whole bottle myself...but I did..the others were too slow. Their loss, this is a good beer. Glad I have another..
