A: pours black into a snifter with a finger of light tan head and minimal retention
S: smells sweet and fruity with notes of caramel and vanilla as well
T: slight cherry/grape flavor, a bit of caramel sweetness, slight hop kick, a bit of chocolate, residual sugar. aftertaste is more bourbon flavor and fruit flavor
M: light and soft carbonation with a heavy and slick mouthfeel
O: I'm really not sure what happened with this beer but it seems to be a bit of a mess in my opinion. It tastes nothing like any Jewbelation and you can taste a lot of the constituent beers in this. Not a lot of rye character going on and some spicy rye would have been nice and would have done a lot to cut through the sweetness. the sweetness really overdid it for me and made the beer lack serious balance.

Very dark brown, nearly black. Minor head fades.
Smells of licorice and rye! Like a rye twizzler. Funky cherry too.
Tastes like barrel-aged oaky dark plum, sour cherry in there too, all of the aforementioned not blended in the most appealing way. Interesting dark fruit notes, but the funky aspect here throws me off.
A boldly tart and sour brew of dark fruits that leaves me with the overall impression that im glad to have tried a new barrel aged brew from a solid brewery, yet I don't see myself seeking it again. Grapey sourness with rye. Odd combo for my taste. Too sweet.? If you like sweet & sour rye ales then this may suit you well. It didnt for me, but maybe it will for you.

Lots going on, tart cherry as one of the stronger flavors.
