Just found this today. Bit strong on the boozy side for me but it is tasty, just don’t plan on drinking alot fast.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2009
bottle. dense and syrupy texture, deep cola brown colored body with a tan head, 1/2 inch in thickness, long-lasting. nose is what i’ve come to expect from these Hebrew anniversary beers - a lot going on from a lot of different ingredients but never coming close to any sort of cohesiveness. thankfully the nose isn’t just plain messy, rather it’s disjointed green, leafy hops on top of vanilla, maple and molasses malts and a heavy dose of alcohol and sugar. malt texture is well-rounded, thickness is heavy but body isn’t syrupy as I feared. again a conflict of flavors that doesn’t really ruin the beer but instead makes it forgettable - the raisin, date and molasses-soaked plums fruit notes are overrun with a run/vanilla/caramel flavor and then spiked by a slightly too-assertive and grassy hop bitterness. not as messy as expected, but certainly not a beer that benefits from more ingredients.

Pailhead (4574) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle: The aroma consists of grape, raisin, chocolate, plum, and some light alcohol. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights and a small tan off-white head that fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with chocolate, plums, raisin, and light citrus notes. The finish has some citrus hops and light-moderate alcohol. Full bodied with mild carbonation.

22oz bomber. Pours a dark cola brown with soft but tight head. Malty fig newton cookie, leather, estery peat malt, roasty, molasses. Full body with slick feel and right amount of carbonation. Sweet maltiness with raisin and figs that quickly picks up some bitterness then earthy peat and tobacco notes. 13% is very well hidden in this one. Has some flavor characteristics that remind me of Adam a bit. There is nothing wrong with this beer at all.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Bottle at the release of Flaming Fury. Pours a cola brown with a thin beige head. Roast, plums. Better than expected, as I’ve been let down by most of the other He-Brew stuff I’ve tried. A bit too sweet, but still tasty.

heavy, heavy, heavy. dark fruit like plum and raisen with sugary malt sweetness. you can tell the thickness from the pour, which is dark brown with big head. nose is big and massive. lots of surprises popping up, but most notibly sweetness. mouthfeel is again, heavy. the taste is very similar from last year’s "12," but much heavier. and exceptional improvement over last years great outing.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2009
On tap at Brouwer’s, tasted alongside the Jewbelation 11 and 12. Killer vertical. Pours deep, dark brown with a ruby tinge and a tan head. Lots of apple in the aroma, countering the brown sugar, spices, and molasses of all those malts. This thing has a gigantic mouthfeel, and at 13%, the alcohol is definitely starting to show through (though you’d never guess it was 13). Apple predominates - interesting that it comes through at all - must be the spices combined with all the hops. Wonderful balance, and a dry finish - I’m a big fan... though it doesn’t have quite the smoothness of the 12.

CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2009
RnH: CASK: pours a very dark mahagony, lots of red tones. The nose is rather sweet, yet sharp... the esters make their way through. The beer is surprisingly smooth and well balanced. Despite the uber heavy esters there is a nice offset with the cooked brown sugars and floral tones as well as some cinnamon at the end.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - OCT 28, 2009
On tap, LA Beerfest. I feel bad for Schmaltz. I treat them poorly: I like many of their beers, but won’t do them the decency of actually purchasing their stuff from a store. So it was a perfect opportunity to continue to try their beer without actually buying it at LA Beerfest. Once again, I liked it. Color is dark red-brown with a medium sized head. Nose has sweet complex fruit and bread on the nose, a nice balance that smells incredibly mature. This was also my experience with Jewbelation 12. Flavor lingers on an impressive note of dried apricot and brown sugar, certainly full-flavored. Palate is full and syrupy. Finish rides a wave of dark fruit and caramel into a bit of boozy astringency, to be expected at 13%. Overall, this is a good sipper beer. I enjoyed it, though in general Jewbelation 13 is likely to overwhelm people after a few ounces of it.

Very pretty beer with a solid, dark body and creamy head. Taste is raisin, figs, alcohol, some chocolate. Mmmm. This one is nice. Some cherry in the aroma and taste as well. Quite enjoyable. I’m waiting for my wife to say she doesn’t like it.
