Aroma of fruits, marachino cherries, slight oak, and slight molasses. Pours deep brown with little head. Taste is soury with molasses and fruits. It’s ok.

Unexpected bottle 2 of evening. Pours deep brown with thin head. Nose of toffee and dark fruits. Tastes of caramel, bourbon, figs, plums, cola, earth, soy sauce, and cherries. Nice carbonation and sweet finish. Pretty decent offering although just a touch too sweet or it’d be excellent.

Just read the label - everything ever made is in this. Bottled less than a month ago to boot. Very dark brown with red notes at the light, small brown head and tiny, sticky islands. The nose is balls deep in the complexity in my glass. Lots and lots of oak, sour cherries, plum, sweet cinnamon, weak licorice, bit of gas here and there but only once max per sniffle, lucious red berries, bourbon. That’s a lot. The flavour is pretty packed as well. Solid sweetness, plum, cherry, molasses, oak, light sourness that get drown out by the sweetness, brown sugar, bit of red berries. While there is a lot going on I wouldnt say that this brew can equal the effort put into making and blending it. Sweet, rich and tasty finish - very smooth and soft. Too much sweetness in this bottle but it works well. Mellow carbonation. Pretty fine, zero alcohol, too sweet overall. I dig but it’s too sweet - not an annoying level of sweet but gets consideration.

Tout d’abord, c’est aussi complexe que trop sucré. J’ai vraiment l’impression de goûté à une expérience un peu à l’aveuglette, pour le reste, c’est un nectar qui offre différentes impressions d’une gorgée à l’autre. Le corps est rubis noire avec une belle tête rapidement dissoute. En arôme c’est le caramel, les oranges, la torréfaction, vraiment criant de sucre de toute sorte. En bouche c’est une tarte au sucre liquide sur laquelle on aurait râpé des noix de muscades, zest d’orange, copeaux de chêne, tabac frais, café noir, chocolat blanc, nougat, prunes avec une présence surette. L’arrière-goût lointain d’amandes grillés donne du coffre. Au final, ça reste une bière qui essai d’en faire trop, beaucoup trop sucré pour être adulé.

650ml bottle pours almost black in color with a small off-white head that leaves some thin spotty lacing. Aroma is dark fruits with some light roasted malts , some bourbon and herbal hops. Taste is big malty sweetness with some roast and hop bitterness. Medium body and light carbonation. Overall, I found these beers better on there own than in this blend. Maybe needs more time to mature, as mine was bottled 03/06/2012.

I loved the strong thick maltiness of this- lots of rye bread, deep fruits, sweet caramel, like a scotch ale mixed with a quadruple and some prune juice for good measure. Sampled at the second annual East Nashville Beer Festival.

Draft. Pours dark brown with a thin beige head. Sweet dark fruity aroma with lighter notes of bourbon. The flavor has a big dark fruity sweetness, with oak and bourbon. Pretty good.

On draft at Beer Rev. It pours dark brown with a khaki head. The aroma is figs and prunes with some light notes of whiskey and tart fruit. The flavor is super sweet with lots of prune juice, wood, light bourbon whiskey and roast in the finish. Really sweet and kinda muddled. Not a bad sipper though. I could only drink about 5 ounces.

Honestly this isnt what i thought it was when i bought it, so that probably affects my rating. I was excited to take this bottle home from the shop, thinking RyePA barrel aged. its actually a blend of several beers (says so on the label). The defining characteristic of this brew is sweet. too sweet. i really wanted some hop bitterness to bite back, but there just isnt any. From aroma, to start to finish to middle all i get is fresh barleywine. I’m surprised to get next to zero of the wood aged taste. I love wood aged beers. thats the primary reason i bought the Funky Jewbelation. sort of a let down. perhaps the 3 is too high...

Bottle (marked as bottled 3/6/2012). Pours with a near black body with a large brown head with good retention and lace. Aromas are of prunes, plums, raisins, dark fruits, pear drops, estery, bourbon, rye, spicy oak, fusel, oak, brown sugar, maple. Shockingly estery. Flavors are very sweet, burnt brown sugar, marzipan, molasses, dates, medium yeast character, marshmallow, flan, medium bitter and some char. Nearly cloying, full bodied, syrupy with light carbonation and light warming.
