4.29/5 rDev +10.6%
Appearance: It has a nice deep brown (almost black) color to it. It has a nice mocha head that dies down moderately fast and leaves next to no lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of dark fruit (plums, raisins, grapes), sweet roasted malts, some chocolate and maybe some molasses.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has some definite dark fruit (plums, raisins and grapes), some chocolaty notes, some sweet roasted malts, some coffee, molasses and an earthy bitterness.
Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

He’brew Jewbilation Sweet 16 has pretty much no head, but there is a slight bit of cream colored foam at the top. The appearance is very dark brown, with a few visible bubbles shooting up. The aroma is very strong- alcohol, caramel, prunes, dark cherries, and overall dark malt. Flavor is of all those elements, and one picks up a dark bread crust, dark brown sugar, and even some bitterness to balance the rich sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium and chewy, with some alcohol burn and carbonation prickle. He’brew Sweet 16 finishes semi-dry, sweet, rich, and tasty. But, drinkability is low and poor. Overall, this is most excellent, but one might find it too intense to enjoy.

Pours dark as night with a half finger head of a mocha colored head that dissipates slowly and leaves a thin ring of lacing. Smells of cocoa, roasted malts, lots of dark fruit like raisin and plum, molasses, and brown sugar. Taste starts with lots of roasted milk chocolate and sweetness. Getting a dark fruit presence as well. The middle brings more roastiness, as well as molasses and toffee and more dark fruit characteristics. Getting a spiciness from the hops. Already getting the booze. The finish is milk chocolate, tiny hint of vanilla, dark fruits, grapes, and roasted malts combine with tons of sweet molasses, toffee, and brown sugar. Definitely get an astringent hop bitterness with an earthy, grassy flavor to go along with the sweet chocolate and dark fruits. A vinous quality to it. Also dry on the finish. Really boozy with a big warming sensation as it goes down. Full body with a creamy and sticky mouthfeel. Not as much of a mess as I thought it would be. This beer is not a lost cause. Just a huge, intense beer that would really benefit from some age. Could be a really nice beer 2 years down the road.
