Thanks to mario rubio for opening the original (2007?) Eleven next to a bottle of the new (2010) re-brew. New brew is in rich maltiness with harsh astringency and alcohol warmth. (approx 2.9) Original shows wonderful rounded bock-like complexity in malt flavors with balancing warmth and slight toffee sweet finish. (approx 3.9) A bit gimmicky I suppose to use the 11 malts, 11 hops etc. (not designed so much around aesthetics of particular ingredients, but making sure there’s 11 of each) but especially the first batch resulted in quality beer ...given enough time to age.

"there sure is a lot going on in there. almost too much, but somehow they pull it off. definitely a sippin’ beer. malty and hoppy at the same time, with a little funkiness and dark fruit flavors. extreme."

Bomber. Massive dark fruit nose, with just a touch of oxidation (7-8 years old). Dark translucent brown color. Mellowed dark fruit: dried raisins, prunes, great dark chocolate, good complex bittering. Medium-heavy body. Very nice, It has aged well, doesn’t show off its high alc, and has good complexity.

KyotoLefty (6724) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2014
2007 bottle. Malty, lightly oxidized nose, aged, raisins, chocolate fudge, oranges. Dark brown with orange, no head. Flavors of vanilla, chocolate, raisins and other dark fruits, bitterness still there. Slightly astringent in the finish, like bitter chocolate. Nicely tart, like blackberries. Dry and complex and definitely aged well.

Pours dark brown with a weak head that only left a lacing that hugged my glass. The nose is of semi roasted malts, carmel, mild burnt molasses, a hint of licorice, and moderate booze. While tasting I noticed complex flavors. There seems to be a lot going on. I could taste booze, bitter sweet flavors, there was a nice malt and hop presence. The finish is of a booze dryness with a defined bitterness with a minor sweet malty flavor that lingers. Overall not to my liking. I am sure this would have tasted better fresh.

Serving type: bottle Appearance- Very Dark Brown almost black with large foamy tan cream head with lots of lacing. Aroma- Very malty and hoppy T/P- Taste is an abundance of hops and a little roasted malt. You can defiantly tell that there are a lot of hops in this one. Overall- This one was not for me, I could not even finish it. I am not a big fan of over hopped beer.

Bottle. Aroma is boozy with some caramel. Pours dark brown with off white head that clings to the glass. Taste is boozy with some fruitiness and caramel malt. Finishes mostly smooth with a bit of hoppiness and booziness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. Poured a nearly opaque dark brown color with thin orange highlights. The head was short and light brown with decent retention. Smelled of fig, chocolate liqueur, and a dash of brown sugar. There were also whiffs of tobacco and leather. Medium to full bodied with ample sweetness and a hint of roasty bitterness. Chocolate, fig, and hints of orange and alcohol-soaked apricot. An American strong ale masquerading as an imperial stout. Or is it the other way around?

Another nice anniversary ale from Hebrew. I bought this as part of a pack which had multiple anniversaries in one box so could compare them and this was one of the best. Very complex, very alcoholic, but the richness is a good compliment to its bite.

Pours a very opaque black, with a slight tan head that quickly disappears. Raisins in the nose and other dark fruit. Very malty and sweet taste. The 11% abv is well hidden making this a dangerous brew!

12oz bottle poured into a Trappist glass. Saved for rating #700. Pours a very dark brown, almost black with a thin bit of off-white head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, citrus, pine, burned sugar, booze and dark fruits. Taste is light bitter. Very hop oriented with some of the malt coming out to play in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Flat carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, very good. I would love to try this one again sometime.
