Category: Winter Seasonal
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.
