Deshutes Jubel 2010

Post by Geezaldinho on Fri Mar 05, 2010 5:53 pm

OK, bear with me. I had this stuff today and it's pretty good - (I think).


The deal is, I'm not sure it's beer.

The Deschutes brewery has a whole thing about it, but as the local distributor explained to me, it started out as a mistake.

10.5% it's a dark beer, somewhat reminiscent of their Jubelale, but it's apparently been frozen and thawed, put in Pinot barrels, and aged. It tastes a little like a Barley wine.

2010 description

They call it their "once a decade beer" last brewed in 2000.

Try it - you might like it.

I will probably stick with my Pliny.

drunken Anyone sampled it yet? I've heard good things...

Was at Widmer last night and sampled a pint... Pretty delicious, and haha it backed a punch at 8.6% Definitely has that strong imperial hoppy flavor but has a "wheatier/granier" finish than Pliny (thats the only way I can describe it). Pretty damn tasty but I might have to give Hop Czar and Pliny the upper hand personally.

OH I also tried the Widmer W'10 Pitch Black IPA off tap last weekend...


I really liked it because you get the hoppiness of an IPA and still some sweet malty flavors you might find in a porter/stout. And I was really surprised just how smooth it was. I'm sad it's a seasonal, I would definitely order it regularly!

Pitch black IPA? Sounds like a misnomer to me... Is there anything really pale about it???

Color wise no, but the first thing you get taste wise is the hoppy explosion that comes with an IPA.

I'm generally not a fan of New Belgium beers, I think they are generally over-rated, in particular Fat Tire. However, they have made a very nice brew in the Ranger IPA. I feel like some IPAs have a tendency to be too malty (interferes with the hops) in an effort to get the alcohol content up, but this beer has a great hop aroma and taste, while maintaining a healthy 6.5% alcohol content. Kudos, New Belgium. I give you credit for your latest effort!

Yep, they finally figured out how to make a proper (NW-ish) IPA with the Ranger.

I have tried to get Pliny on a couple of occasions this week but it eludes me still. Sold out at Henry's. Out of stock at John's Market. I had to figure those were the two best locations for me to get it in Portland.

Nah, best locale to have it off tap (which is better for Pliny) is probably at Horse Brass, I had a pint on my birthday a few weeks ago... SO good...

But yeah, call Belmont Station, they might even have an email list that tells you when pliny comes out (it goes really fast)

There are certain specialty grocery stores in town that carry it occasionally, but you have to know the secret handshake and wink sequence.... Suspect

I am continuing my Widmer run here, but I have tasted their Summer seasonal, Sunburn Summer Brew, and it is pretty tasty.



I know it is probably too light for many on here, but the crisp, citrus hints should make Sunburn a refreshing thirst quencher on a hot July afternoon... ABV 4.3%

The end of Mack's made me reevaluate my life choices and stop drinking. Thanks UP!

Finally got a couple last night at John's Market. Very good beer but unfortunately I needed a few more then the limit of 4 after the Cavs' game last night. Good thing I bought other beer that was more appropriate for the kind of drinking I needed so that I can enjoy the other one tonight.
