Thanks to Dan and Jon from The Full Pint for sharing this with me.
A - Dark brown, small head, nice lacing.
S - Beautiful candy sugar sweetness comes through. Strong scents of fruits and caramel sweetness! This smells amazing!
T - The taste is good, not great... YET. Malty, fruity and a lot of other flavors come through this. I think it needs some time in the cellar before it's opened.
M - Kind of light on the tongue, maybe a medium body to it. With the booziness of the taste and the complex and sugary smell of it I thought it'd be a lot thicker and chewier than it is.
D - The booze is pretty present, I think if it's given some time to mellow out it can be a very tasty beer. It's not bad now, but it will be much better later.

Jubel got into Boise yesterday... I was able to talk Brenda into heading to the COOP tonight for me... Poured into my Delerium goblet.
3/4" Tan head with good retention and lacing... The brew pours significantly darker than I was expecting... deep chocolate brown until you hold it to a bright lite and crystal clear deep garnet highlites are revealed... very pretty.
Nose is really malty with a nice dark fruity element.. maybe a bit of tannic woody notes... caramel and a dusting of cocoa.. needs warmth to blossom... getting some vinous notes as it hits room temperature.... pretty damn good.
Flavor is again nicely malty with similar but more pronounced dark fruit esters .. the wood really compliments the complexity of the malts... not getting any "wine" character, but I doubt I would be able to pick it out without one of my wine friends explaining it to me... raisins show throughout with something that I can only describe as essence of plum.. once I think about it a while, I can really see where this is a much bigger version of Jubelale... where Jubelale tends to be drier, this has a nice rich maltiness from front to back.. but the finish does dry out with some woody tannins and that is where I think I'm getting the wine barrel... finish lingers forever with wood and dried fruits and lite cocoa... yummy .. some black pepper shows with room temperature... could be perceived alcohol..
Great medium/lite heavy body with smooth lighter than expected carbonation... this is a brew that is really making me think.. I can see how this is going to get better with some age .. but honesty right now thinks are meshing fairly well. The drinkability is high for me even though this is such a sipper... each sip reveals new flavors and makes me want another... this is going to be a pleasure finishing off this bottle over the next couple of hours... Nice for sure.

Tasted at the pub in Portland at the release "party". Served in a wide bowled large brandy glass (not sure of the technical term for this glass). 12oz pour. Notes from memory.
A: The color is a deep dark brown color. Definitely not black, more like rich chocolate brown.
S: Smell is hard to identify and faint at first. Improved over time as the drink warmed (it was served a little too cold). Some caramel flavors. A little raisin (?) or dark fruit. Very complex with a bright smell I associate with getting this beer fresh.
T: The beer continues to be complex on the taste with more fruit, raisin, and caramel. The fruit provides a little sweetness, but not overly so. I got a little heat from the alcohol as the beer finished. Limited hop presence, but that is expected. The beer improved as it warmed and I feel like there are many more subtle flavors that will show in a better tasting environment.
M: Fairly light bodied, for what it is. I remember the SuperJubel as a beer that really coated the tongue, almost too much so. Not with Jubel 2010. Very smooth beer.
D: Can I have another please? Likely not. At 11%, this beer goes down a little too easily. While best sipped slowly, the taste and mouthfeel of this beer don't require it. Overall, I really enjoyed this beer, more than I expected. Would love to try it on a firken.

Had this on tap at the pub for the release party. Gary Fish even showed up to give a little speech about the history of this beer...very cool! Drinking out of the Jubel 2010 Commemorative glass (kind of like a pinot noir glass)
A: Pours a dark chocolate brown body with hints of ruby in the light, and the body is slightly transparent on the edges. Small one finger head falls to thin lacing. Appears more like a barleywine than an American Strong, fairly viscous...
S: Very barleywine-like, lots of dark fruit, roasted caramel malt, toffee, apricot, green apple, very complex and almost reminiscent of a Belgian triple. Excited to taste it!
T: Leads out with the fruit, lots of lighter fruits. Definitely get the green apple, faint apricot, raisin, and a little honey. Then the malt comes through with caramel, toffee, and a little roastiness that rounds out the sweetness of the fruits. The finish is long with a faint hint of grassy floral hop.
M: I expected it to be heavier, but that's a good thing, the body comes across closer to medium than heavy, but definitely viscous. The carbonation on this beer is unreal, it is present but so soft and creamy it is amazing how smooth this is especially for 11%!
D: Dangerously drinkable for 11%...the booze comes through ever so faint on the finish which detracts from the drinkability just a touch. Overall this beer is fantastic, definitely world class and one that I will be picking up several of!
