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

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Central Waters Snifter.

A: Deep dark mahogany color. Aggressive pour leads to a 1 finger light mocha head that fades pretty quickly. Lacing is present but not very prevalent.

S: Lots of dark fruits, figs, licorice...big sweet malts. ABV is present but mixes nicely with the sweetness.

T: Follows the nose almost directly. Man is this thing full of flavor. Big sweet malts with tons of sweet dark fruits with a twist of bitterness at the end mixed with a touch of hotness at the very end.

M: Big bold bodied. Wonderful creamy finish. Perfectly carbonated.

O: A nice easy drinking humongous beer. Congrats He'Brew on another wonderful anniversary beer.

I am growing fonder of this brewery by the beer, so another big anniversary brew? Bring it on. 15/15/15. Put the car keys under the porch.

Pour is very dark with an inkling of amber around the periphery; plenty of jazz for a big steroid-infused beer. Nose is very sweet, muddled, maybe molasses? The sheer number of malts might be confusing my olfactory factory.

Jewbelation Fifteen richer than Robert Murdoch & not a tenth as offensive. Rich, & deep. Lovely sweet malts that mimic molasses on the tongue, sweet raisins, apple/grape juice, scorched sugars. Alcohol free, except for the heat leaking into my belly. Thicker than roof tar, this sticks to every vital it encounters. Tasty enough to be dangerous; this should have a bright warning label attached to it.

Wickedly excellent beer. Jewbelation might have a good shtick going on, but behind it they make really good beers. Here's another. Just don't drink it & try to operate a bulldozer.

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

appearance: Very deep warm brown, nearly black. Crystal clear but dark, so it almost seems translucent. Warm tan head, suitable to style.

smell: Malt assault, roasty caramel, molasses, prunes. Luscious and phat. Alcohol is present - but not in a boozy way - clean. No discernible hop aroma.

taste: Rich and smooth. Lot's of smooth phat malts. Roast and bittersweet chocolate. Hops are present in bitterness for good balance. Sweetness is all melanoidens and dextrins - complex and not candy sweet.

mouthfeel: Medium heavy, slick. Roast and a bit of astringency haunt the finish while the slickness remains. Luxurious.

overall: Fantastic balance in a huge strong ale. Like a huge Baltic Porter with a splash of Strong Old Ale. It's a little aggressive in youth, but I'm going to try to get a case of this to wax and hide away for more than 12 months.
