Jubelale 2020

Recently I've taken to writing reviews of new beers for some friends on discord, and it's very much rekindled my love of tasting, and sharing with others, my drinking experiences. Tonight, as I was enjoying a lovely pipe and this years Jubelale from Deschutes Brewery, I decided why not just create these reviews here, to share with others. So let's get on with it then, shall we?

Beer: Jubelale 
Brewery: Deschutes
Location: Bend, OR.
Category: Winter Seasonal
Beer Advocate:

Of all of the seasons that prompt special beer offerings from breweries, the winter seasonal is perhaps my favorite. Many breweries play with spice, fruit, and those rich and roasty flavors that dark malts can provide. As the weather gets cold I start looking for the return of these beers, and Jubel is always one of the first I look for. This years Jubel does not disappoint. The silky mouthfeel coats the tongue pleasantly, without feeling heavy or surypy. The initial taste is of toffee and hints of chocolate which finishes with a lovely roastiness.
