Pours a filtered nut brown color with a huge, eggshell colored head.

Smells of herbal bread crust, together with a layer of caramel and copper. Offers an additional corn quality, grainy with a subtle sweet note, establishing a diversified maltiness.

Has a soft, vivid mouthfeel, creating a very smooth, refreshing, light bodied enjoyment.

Tastes of bready, toffee malts, with a gentle rustic characteristic to them, soothed by an aqueous softness. This invites a subtle, old grass note to the flavors, highlighting a sweeter wheatiness. Finishes with a nice interplay of slightly bitter, herbal hops and soft, bakers chocolate accompanied, whole grain bread malts.

Light and enjoyable with a pleasant hop tingle near the end.

Poured into tulip glass. Lovely dark, thick brown. Fizzy head fades away.

Nose of mostly cooled roasted malt.

Taste is rich in chocolate, caramel, bran, raisin. A good nutty mix.

Mouth is great. Really smooth.

A rich beer that isn't demanding. Nice and savory. Lots of delightful chocolate and not over on ABV.

Jubliate Dark Lager pours a beautiful ruby brown with a tan head. Nutty malt and a slight hint of dark dried fruit provide the nose . On the palate clean nutty malt tastes combine with kettle sugars and light roast flavors from the dark malts. There are just enough hops to keep it interesting.

.5L bottle
Pours clear with a mahogany brown body and a fine looking head that has poor retention.

Attractive, relatively complex aroma; mainly malty with hints of raisins faint hops. The flavor follows, but seems less complex and fruity.

Feel: very smooth with excellent carbonation and a slightly buttery finish.

O: excellent for style and good with food.

500ml bottle poured into pint glass.

A - A cloudy dark brown with a thin head that lasted for less than a minute.

S - Not pleasant. Rancid grapes and other dark fruit. Not a wine fan and this is what it reminded me of. A bit of hop action.

T - Very disappointed. Tasted a lot of the wine aspects mentioned earlier. Was sour and dank. Did not like.

F - Ok. Nothing special, nothing bad. Very little carbonation but was crisp in a good way.

O - Was a drain pourer. Didn't improve as temperature rose. Overall, simply didn't like the sourness. Tasted as much like wine to me as beer. Not sure if this is normal for an organic beer. Either way, will not purchase again.

500mL poured into a pint glasss

Pours murky brown amber. Very little of a white head. This beer reminds me of a doppelbock mixed with an oktoberfest. The beer has massive caramel qualities and flavors that dominate the tongue. The beer has a nice dark fruit presence as well. There is a dark grain presence in this beer that is again, all toffee and caramel. The feel of this beer is velvety smooth and quite creamy. There is a slight tart fruit flavor in this beer as well. Overall, its a nice old fashioned German brew.

1 pint .9 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a Uinta pilsner glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average given its current ratings. Cost was $3.99. Acquired at a bottle shop near San Diego. I think it was KnB wines.

Served straight from the refrigerator. Poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a one finger khaki colour head of nice cream, nice thickness, and good retention. Colour is a pale translucent brown - very strange. Nontransparent. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Not very appealing.

Sm: Nuts, cream, biscuit malt, sugars, and caramel. A light aroma.

T: Caramel dominates. Some nuts. Varied mid-range malts. Some amber and biscuit. Nicely balanced, albeit simple. I like it, but it's hardly impressive. Not special or unique. It's got some nice flavour. Hardly any subtlety or layering.

Mf: A bit overcarbonated. Smooth and wet, suiting the flavour nicely. A bit too thick. Too heavy on the palate for the lack of flavours.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable, but far from exemplary. I wouldn't get it again. Boring for the style, but definitely on the upper end of those I've tried. A bit pricey by German standards.
