This beer is a winter ale titled, "Jubelale" that falls under the category of BJCP #30A (Spice, Herb or Vegetable) category. The aroma of this beer had hints of coffee and malt sweetness only. The pour revealed a dark brown color along with a nice carbonation. The flavor of this beer revealed a malt sweetness along with slight hints of cocoa, coffee and slightly burnt grain. Their was a nice balance of malt and hop bittering, but that was about all.  The body and mouthfeel was medium and the carbonation level was good. The beer didn't have anything that stood out and was rather "middle of the road" as a seasonal holiday ale.
