Jubelale Brewed by Deschutes Brewery


The 2012 label is literally “layered” with meaning – the artwork, titled "Revelers and Troubadors," was created through a complex collaging process by artist Kaycee Anseth Townsend. She uses small scraps of paper to create designs, and she comprised this year’s packaging entirely from pieces of past year's Jubelale labels. You might even recognize a scrap or two from years gone by inside the incredibly intricate final design.

Beer Review from Beer Advocate:
Appearance - Mahogany colored brew with decent clarity and medium carbonation. It produced a fluffy off white 2-finger head that held very well. It left very nice lacing on my glass.

Aroma - I get lots of brown sugar, vanilla undertones and soft ginger. A bit of cinnamon in there as well with leafy/herbal hop characteristics. The soft ginger and cinnamon work so well in the aroma. It's very inviting.

Taste - It's got a nice brown sugar flavor upfront, an almond like note quickly follows. It unfolds into nuttiness, cinnamon, allspice, and subtle vanilla. It finishes with a bright, palate cleansing herbal hop flavor that washes away the warming spice and malt flavors. Bitterness is low but balancing, and it's noticeable dry as well. The herbal hop character seems to get a little stronger as it warms.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with a bit of a smooth feel and medium crispness.

Overall - Wow, this is a very nice beer. The aroma is soft and inviting to me, and the flavor profile is wonderful with that subtle vanilla and cinnamon. The beer even looks tasty! I definitely recommend this one to anyone who likes maltier brews.
Deschutes Brewery
Located in beautiful Bend, Oregon, Deschutes Brewery is in the business of daring people to expect more from their beer. That's why we started off in 1988, on the banks of the Deschutes River here in Bend, Oregon, by selling Black Butte Porter at a time when others were sure a dark beer would never catch on. Our brewers love to push the envelope, especially if it makes someone nervous. But for us, the highest praise is a raised glass and a toast of "Bravely Done!"
