Bottle. Split over two sessions two days apart. Rating from first session. Very approachable for a big beer. LIke eating a bread pudding made with rich brownies and high ABV beer. Dark brown with a nice brown foam. Nose is boozy molasses. Flavour is alcohol, brownies and molasses. Holds up well to previous years but how high can they go?

Tap at the Mason Lounge on NYE. Motor oil black with light brown head. Lots going on with this one: sweet, molasses aroma, with some dark fruit, chocolate, coffee and anise. Mild hop presence in the taste (mostly the Fuggles, I think) , but mostly sweet raisin/chocolate/licorice combo. Strong roasted finish. For as much of a mess as this could have been, I’m mildly impressed.

I have been getting this every season for several years Jewbelation 10, 11, 12, etc. these guys are a hoot just to make this each year. This one is also pretty exceptional. Will kick your butt and I usually have it on New Years eve. This one is especially tasting of licorice and the Alcohol is pretty hidden. More of a beer soup that pours like motor oil. The brewmasters pull it off once again for palette and taste. I usually get a bottle or two for my Jewish friends for Hanukkah.

Black pour wit a thick tan head. Aroma is coffee, liquorice, chocolate, booze. Full bodied. Flavours of chocolate, liquorice, chicory, coffee. Alcohol is well hidden for 16%, but does provide some warmth. Finish is booze and liquorice.

reebtogi (4555) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2012
650ml bottle pours a dark brown color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is light chocolate and brown sugar with a strong dose of alcohol. Taste is a chocolate and malty sweetness with a herbal hoppy bitterness with notes of alcohol burn in the finish. Considering all the malts and hops in this brew, it is not as complex as it should be, it is quite basic in taste and aroma.

Shared at thirdeye11’s birthday party. The beer pours a dark brown color with a small head. The aroma is full of brown sugar and alcohol. The flavor is more of the same and is pretty much exactly what I remember from previous Jewbelation beers. I get a ton of brown sugar, toffee and caramel, as well as a tremendous amount of booze. Definitely a beer that you only need a few ounces of.

Draft... Pours dark and clear with no head. The aroma is a fruity, caramely jumble of fragrances. Full-bodied and sticky with restrained carbonation. The flavor is painfully sweet, boozy and hearty with a moderately bitter off-flavor that I can’t quite nail down. Metallic finish. How many malt and hop varietals are too many? Oh, about sixteen, I guess.
