Note: Aged since 2008

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear jet black in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and faint dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy dark tan head that reduces to a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of dark fruit (fig and plum), chocolate, brown sugar, and caramel. Moderate aromas of dark malts and a light hint of booziness.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of dark malts and light flavors of roasted malts with a moderate amount of brown sugar, caramel, and toffee sweetness. That is followed by light notes of nuts and moderate to strong flavors of dark fruits (fig and plum). Light amounts of earthy + spicy hops are present in the finish which contribute a light amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: This beer ages really well with a much smoother mouthfeel and better hidden alcohol after time in the cellar. A slow sipper but definitely a very enjoyable brew.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

A: The beer appears black when viewed from afar; when held up to a bright light traces of brownish red are visible near the edge of the glass. It poured with a short beige head that quickly died down, leaving wispy lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: The smell is quite malty, having aromas of nutty malts and toffee.
T: The taste follows the smell, but has added complexities with additional hints of brown bread, dark fruits, molasses, and raisins.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with just abound a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer ages particularly well, which seems to lend some smoothness to the mouthfeel. The alcohol is extremely well hidden from the taste.

Note: 2008 vintage

Hebrew Jewbelation 12

LOOK: Pours a dark brown, opaque, but without sediment. Short lived tan head forms and fades somewhat quickly. Carbonated bubbles rise lazily to the surface, as if the alcohol by weight in this beer has made them dizzy.

SMELL: Chocolate malt, alcohol, rye, toffee, caramel, molasses, brown sugar, toast, tobacco, leather, nuts, dark fruits.

TASTE: Roasted malts, nuts, and alcohol upfront. Molasses, coffee and mild bitterness on the back end. Earthy, raw hop flavor with notes of herb, citrus, mint and leaves. Tobacco and extra dark brown sugar are in the finish, giving off a strong candied malt impression. A bit of extra dark soy sauce has crept into this brew, showing a bit of oxidation. Finishes with chocolate syrup and a presence of alcohol

FEEL: A full bodied ale, just enough carbonation has held up to carry the beer. The low level of carbonation and relatively heavy body makes for a syrupy brew that some tasters describe as chewy.

OVERALL: There are some bold flavors in this brew, and the age is starting to show. Pleasing enough to sip upon, and warms the soul. A good strong ale, the cellar is treating me good today!
