4.55/5  rDev +16.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Served in a pub glass. Pours almost black with dark ruby opaqueness. Large beige head that lasts throughout drinking. Nice lacing.

Smells:Dry floral hops, dry, powdery chocolate. Earthy, roasted coffee smell. Dark fruity sweetness and caramel malt.

Tastes as smells and then some. Very complicated tastes, but is simply delicious. Nice roasted coffee and chocolate and smooth caramel malt on the initial. Spicy, earthy, light cloves. Finishes with a very pleasant dry floral/citrus dryness.

Full bodied. Perfectly carbonated. The alcohol is presented well.

Very easy and enjoyable to drink. I would gladly like to drink more than one, but I might not be able to get to my bed.

I feel like I am inadequately describing all of the tastes going on in this beer, but it ties together so elequently.

Extremely dark brown, very little head. Delicate lacing.

Raisins, nutty, fruitcake, dark rum, cocoa powder aromas.

Prunes, chocolate, hazelnut, espresso-like bitterness (but not flavors). Very dry for all the sweet tastes occuring. Good flavors, fits the description of a double nut brown ale. Seems like it could stand to be a bit less bitter.

Heavy-body, but not cloying sweet. Creamy. Fine carbonation.

A fairly unique brew. Definitely gets better as it warms. Enjoyable, but not something that I would necessarily seek out. Glad to have tried it.

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

Poured from 22 oz. bottle into He'Brew pint glass.

Appearance: Very dark brown that shows a little red color when held up to light. Decent sized light tan head quickly fades into a thin layer. Very good lacing.

Smell: Sweet toasted dark malts and nuts followed by chocolate and hints of earthy hops. Dark fruit smells like raisins.

Taste: Dark fruits, malts, and chocolate give a sweet taste up front. Hints of vanilla follow. Finishes with some hop bitterness and warmth from the booze. Also taste some plums in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and carbonation. Smooth despite the high alcohol.

Overall: A very tasty and interesting version of a brown ale. Almost feels as if it was barrel aged. A very fine brew.

S: deep malt notes, slight underlying sweetness, nice woody character, slight alcohol tinge

T: nice deep malt character, alcohol tinge seen in scent is not present in taste

D/M: smooth drinking, leaves a slight malt taste on the pallet, easy drinking brew, great taste makes it a joy to drink

A - Matt black body supports a head whose shade is identical to the nine. The initial carbonation is tight, smooth and aesthetically integrated, but retention is fleeting and the lacing is average at best.

S - Milk chocolate, toffee, and a slight herbaceous note (coriander perhaps) rise from within, yet the signature Jewbelation intensity seems to be taking a holiday of its own.

T - This brew seems to offer many of the same elements as the nine, although none of them are expressed with the suave bravado of other examples from this series. As much as i would like to deliberate the subtleties distinguishing these two brews, I'd rather spend the rest of my time enjoying this one, and refer any readers of this post to the Jewb 9 review - http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/262/25467/?ba=SirRuss
-and suggest that it is read several decibels lower than if you were trying to get a feel of the nine (for which the review was originally written)

M - Good, but over done. Prickly, and uplifting to the extent that it detrimentally diminishes the potential of the flavor profile.

O - Pretty damn good, but unfortunately for the ten, the nine has clocked us on to the fact that the Jewbelation series can do a whole lot better, and with a whole lot less.

Pour was surprisingly dark for a beer with relatively little roasted flavor in the malt. A lot of depth to this beer - both malt and hops, and I have no doubt they used ten of each as the bottle notes. Substantial, yet surprisingly drinkable for the hefty abv (a bit too drinkable, perhaps).

Pours a four-finger light tan head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Black color. Slight molasses nose. Light carbonation and heavy bodied. Flavor is light sweetness, bitter chocolate, finish is bitter coffee. Better as it warms. High ABV is hidden. Gift - bought in the Boston, MA vicinity.

Very dark brown body with rudy highlights. Soft tan dense foam. Thick lace, but not stretchy.

Lot of yeast in the nose. Raisin bread, biscuits. Bit of candy. Hints of alcohol soaked dark fruits along the edges.

Beer hits the tongue with a big sweet sugar smack. A schmear of yeast follows down the tongue. Those hints of alcohol soaked dark fruits are tickling the edges of the tongue. Lots of chocolate. Earthy hops drop in for a quick bite. Warming sense of alcohol in the afterglow.

Nice medium-plus mouthfeel. Good drinkability for a 10% ABV beer.

Not something I'd make a habit of, but not bad as a one-shot. Mellows nicely. Happy anniversary. Mazel tov !
