Avery’s Old Jubilation Ale

It seems like companies are trying to get us into the holiday spirit earlier and earlier every year. At least one way I won’t complain about that is Avery’s Old Jubilation Ale, a winter warmer that’s hitting just in time for sipping inside when it’s cold out. This malty, English-style brew pours an opaque, chocolatey dark brown, and even with a bad cold I can get little hints of roasty goodness on the nose. The first few sips will shock your palette slightly with the warming sensation of the 8.3% ABV, before dissolving into a soft, charming carol of brown sugar, cinnamon rolls, subtle chocolate hints, and some spice on the finish. It’s sure to keep your throat and your spirit warm. Cheers!
