12 oz bottle, from the 2010 Vertical Boxset.

appears a very dark brown color, off-white head that fades to nothing. aroma of plum, fig, tobacco, spiced rum. similar flavors in the taste. complex and blended taste. medium to thick body, lower carbonation.

overall - they added one more grain and one more hop, but it's still very similar to Jewbelation 11 and 12.

look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Opaque brown-black with a thin ring of light brown foam.

Sherry, raisins and other dark dried fruits, a touch of roast and nuttiness, a light earthiness as well.

Restrained roast, then the earthiness, lots of dried fruit and sherry, and then a dry dark chocolate finish. Perhaps the driest of the series so far.

Pretty heavy-bodied despite the dryness, low carbonation.

A slow sipper, but well done. Would go nicely with a cigar or the right cheese. Has a lot of subtle notes if you're willing to take the time to look for them.

Review from 1/2011 notes. Bottle from the 2011 Holiday Gift Pack. Poured into a He'brew small shaker pint. Pours very dark brown amber, appearing black with thin brown head and little lacing. Aroma of molasses, dark malt and alcohol. Dark fruit, dark malts, molasses and booze, finishes hot with dark fruits and malt. I'd age this one if they were available. Nicely done.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Forgot that I had this beer which I picked up a while ago and finally got around to trying this evening. Pours a dark reddish brown with a very thin amount of head.

Smell is of alcohol, malt, and caramel however the alcohol vastly over powers the other scents.

Taste is a burning boozy alcohol. I get some chocolate/coffee on the after taste. I would have though this beer may have died down some after a few years, but that is not the case here.

12oz of this would have sufficed, but 22oz was a little hard to get down given the overly powerful booze scent and taste with this one.

P-Cool celebratory look with the 15 in the back ground.

A-Pretty dark with little to no head. Light brown head and poured a little thin.

S-Greenn apples and some cinnamon as well. Little chocolate and smoky smell. Soft booze smell for 15% beer.

T-Really good. Has a nice sweet taste that comes from the booze. Dark chocolate and plums with also some almonds. Cinnamon and raisins as well.

M-A nice soft smooth silk like draw thats nice. Full bodied and stout like feel. Carbonation is low and should be. Dark roasts and chocolate stick to the palate.

O-A really nice beer overall. Like the complexity of the flavors and the stout like feel. Will probably get better with age.

Got this bottle in a recent trade with STEG. Thanks for the brews man!

From a bomber into a snifter.

APPEARANCE: First pour was a little weak, but the second pour was straight down the middle and ended up being more impressive. Straight pour produced a two finger, thicker looking light tan head with really good retention. Head slowly fades to a wisp and clings to the sides of the glass. Transparent bistre brown body with no carbonation evident. A ring remains until the end and leaves some sticky lacing at the top of the glass.

SMELL: Big nose on this one. Caramel and toffee notes, dark fruits, such as raisins, dark grapes and dates, and some boozy aromas as well. Some smoky notes and touches of coffee as well. Big, sweet and boozy stuff.

TASTE: Follows the nose nicely. Caramel and toffee up front with lots of dark, fruity sweetness. A good dose of booze at the swallow, followed by some sweet molasses and caramel with notes of bitter coffee and some leathery qualities as well. Bold and lingering aftertaste is sweet with some bitterness as balance and a nice, rummy booze base. Good stuff.

PALATE: Medium-full body with medium carbonation. Nicely creamy smooth on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes slightly sticky. A slight burn at the swallow and some heat lingers.

OVERALL: Another solid beer from He’Brew. Lots of good flavors in this one, and the rest of the beer is well put together. This brewery continues to impress and I’d gladly drink any of their strong ales again. Thanks for the trade STEG. This was another solid brew.
