Jubel 5 Years Early

The label may look like the wallpaper from a Gothic English manor but this barrel-aged 2015 version of Jubel from Deschutes Brewery will probably be excellent now and later.


This is the 3rd vintage release of Jubel aka “Super Jubel” a 12 month barrel-aged beer with half aged in Pinot and Oregon oak barrels. The brewery tastes “notes of toasted caramel, raisins, dates and figs are complemented by spicy and herbal hop aromas.”

This beer should not have been done until 2020.  That was the original plan but they just couldn’t wait.
