Re-release from the vertical pack from a few years ago.

A: Pours a dark red, near black, with a small amount of light tan head. Just a bit of film retains, along with a ring around the edge of the glass, leaving minor lacing.

S: Lightly sweet with a dense undertone.

T: Again lightly sweet. Lighter than I'd expect, and doesn't taste or feel quite like 10%. The complexity is decent, but not outstanding.

M: Medium to light body, medium carbonation.

Overall, not bad. Not great. I think it may have been aged too long, even at 10%.

12 oz bottle. Opens with a small pfft. Aroma of chocolates, malted milk balls, dust, alcohol, shoe polish, leather and a pinch of dark fruits. In the taste, a good bit of roast and char upfront. Wood, citrus and earth notes from the hops are there, and dry this right out. Molasses, oily dark cigar, and raw brown sugar. Alcohol flavor is mild to unnoticeable and the balance is big but even. Some caramel, chocolate and molasses are there in force. Licorice, anise and a bit of warmth. Oily and full in body, the carbonation is low but present. This is an excellent strong ale, reminds me of a Russian imperial stout.

12oz bottle as part of the 8-15th anniversary box set for $30. Has been cellared in the closed box for a year since I bought it. 10 year anniversary beer brewed with 10 different grains (2-row, dark crystal, chocolate, victory, munich, carapils, wheat, oatmeal, rye, and crystal rye), 10 different hops (warrior, northern brewer, mt. hood, centennial, cascade, vanguard, tettnang, czech saaz, willamette and simcoe) and 10% abv.

Pours out to a clear very dark brown, near black, forming a tightly beaded, very creamy light tan head (like good cappuccino foam). Excellent head retention and solid thick sticky sheets of lace, moderate carbonation, ~2.5 carbs or so. The nose is redolent of prunes, figs, raisins, spicy hops that have mellowed a bit, rum, carob, a little touch of bourbon, and subtle black walnut. Mouthfeel is slightly acidic due to the hops, with a bold, chewy and slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Cleanly fermented, no off-flavors, even at this age. The taste is a recap of the aroma with a pleasantly firm bitterness, in perfect balance with the malts, and some mild dark roasted malt flavor. Reminds me of a strongly hopped baltic porter, but not as roasted or astringent as a robust porter or American stout. Finish of black cherries, leather, mild pipe tobacco and cola. Compared to the 9, this has quite a bit more bitterness and the overall impression offers a roasted malt note that I didn't get from the 9. I also really like the substantial mouthfeel that this offers over the 9.

An excellent beer. Highly recommended.

2.95/5  rDev -24.7%

12oz. bottle from the 2011 Holiday pack

(A)- Pours a dark brown color with some reddish highlights. Some tan to white froth.

(S)- A subtle roasted grain component. Some raisin and an interesting woody bark-like aroma.

(T)- Similar to the smell with cocoa and raisin in there.

(M)- A solid carbonation level. An ok balance, but it does get a touch abrasive with how heavy the grains are showing.

(O)- Overall, a bit abrasive in the mouthfeel, but still enjoyable despite that for sure.

3.9/5  rDev -0.5%

Nearly black with a ruby glint in the wine glass. Modest head, but quite spritzy on the tongue. Subsequent pours show off the foam and add to the carbonation. They must have aged this in tanks and made sure it had enough spritz when they did the bottling.

Licorice is the single biggest flavor to my palate. Very dark roasted flavors dominate. There is just a whisper of sweet malt at first, but fairly dry as you sip. This doesn't seem to have the sweet base of residual sugars of most of the big Shmaltz beers. Rather sharp instead of sticky. Burnt figs is the impression once the hops start to dominate the finish.

Quite tasty, truly different, and maybe it's evidence that at least some beers can benefit from age. From the 12 oz bottle in the boxed set of older Jewbelations.
