look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Bottle: Poured a burgundy color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of dry fruits with loads of residual sugars notes. Taste is a mix between molasses, dry fruits, some plums and raisins with load of caramel malt. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation and light warming alcohol. Interesting but too sweet for its own good.

He'Brew I just don't get them sometimes...2013 release contract brewed at Saratoga Springs, NY same as Mendocino, and some other contract breweries. This is a dubbel doppel hybrid of a dubbel and a doppelbock with fig and date concentrates added. Pours a deep ruby hue with light tan head fine even speckled lacing follows as the head dwindles. Aroma has a grainy character I get from most of the beers contracted at this brewery, however there's a generic fruitiness which has a bit of earthiness to it probably the fig and date concentrate. Sweet flavor as it warms more date/figs come out in the flavor, super sweet raisins, with bready/caramelized malts. Mouthfeel is a bit uneven a bit much carbonation and cloying sugars in between sips. Overall, this is just such a sweet beer it's hard to find balance.

Pours a hazy dark crimson-orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, and fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, molasses, and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some nice caramel and toffee aromas that make the smell slightly better than the taste in my opinion.

22oz bottle, 2013 edition, a strangely hard offering to come by around here, for some reason (taps his nose, i.e. the rep around these parts maybe not doing their job properly).

This beer pours a clear, very dark ruddy brown colour, with two fingers of puffy, caked beige head, which leaves some nice spooky pock-marked sea-cliff lace around the glass as it gently settles.

It smells of dark, somewhat musty citrus and melon fruit, bready caramel malt, sedate yeast, a hint of oily nuttiness, soft clove and black pepper spice, some darker fig and date fruit notes, and the slightest whiff of sidling alcohol. The taste is semi-sweet caramel malt, a wet sourdough breadiness, muddled clove/coriander spice, faltering Belgian yeast, watered down figs and dates, the suggestion of walking through a cooperage in rubber boots, and earthy, mildly perfumed hops.

The carbonation is pretty innocuous for the most part, the body an airy, yet sturdy medium weight, and quite genially smooth, with a mere suggestion of pithy, fruity creaminess. It finishes on the sweet side, the dates and figs coming round to bear, while the grainy caramel malt sits and quietly fumes.

A decent enough rendition of a Middle Eastern-tinged Belgian staple - this whole Jewish schtick taking itself to its logical conclusion within the Rejewvenator line, i.e. 'let's just add the two previous guest ingredients together for the next one!' Sigh. Anyway, this dubbel's attributes shine through well, I suppose, and the Holy Land approved fruitiness doesn't overdo or interfere all that much, so I have to say, in return, L'Chaim, and good job overall, your mama must indeed be proud. Now freaking send us some 17, #ifuknowwhutimean.

Poured from a bottle in the holiday pack into the 17th anniversary glass. May be a little biased because this is the beer that got me started with He'Brew

A- typical dark copper and clear

S- dark fruits...I guess figs and dates. Sweet smelling and malty. No alcohol smell

T- much like the smell would suggest, a sweeter and malty beer with fig and date notes throughout. There is a touch of alcohol at the end, but not overpowering.

M- a little thin but well carbonated

O-Like I said, this is the beer that got me started on He'Brew so I'm a bit partial, but I really enjoy this beer. Maybe not in multiples, but as something unique I think this is a very well done beer!
