Wow. Another huge, rich, beast of a beer. Well balanced and strong. Malty sweetness and tangy hops in a beautiful marriage of extremes that still manages to be smooth. Better than 11. On par with 10. Very good!

Pours a lovely black with a light beige head. Aroma is straight malt of toffee and licorice. Has a very sweet taste with hints coco and toffee. Leaves a clean finish.

Bomber to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks DuffMan). Looks good; a fairly opaque cola with beige head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes solid; dark malt and chocolate with a boozy backbone. There’s a nice but subtle vanilla presence too. Enjoyable.

How many of these can hebrew make? At some point, they will become to extreme and too expensive to make. This one hasn’t gone that far yet. Very complex, very alcoholic, but they somehow even out. Really rich, lots of spice and dark fruit and bread.

On tap at Dexters, pours black with a soapy tan head, the aroma is very similiar to the Fifteen, a lot of booze with dark malt and a little bit of chocolate, the flavor really comes through more in the Twelve though, huge chocolate front end with a touch of oak and alcohol in the finish, comes together nicely, good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gorgeous orange-tan colored two finger head. Opaque dark brown body. LOTS of carbonation bubbles in glass. Sugary aroma of prunes, plums and black currant. Sweet/tart flavor, with tartness growing on the back of the tongue the longer you wait after taking a sip. Bready flavors of orange and bisquits. Has aged nicely.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma has quite a bit of molasses and chocolate in it, as well as quite a bit of alcohol. The flavor is more complex and was the best of the Jewbelation flight in my opinion. I get some nice dark fruit notes, with some cherries and grapes, as well as some roasted malt and chocolate notes. There is also some sugar and molasses-like notes, as well as a good dose of alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

650ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger of off-white head that leaves some thin lacing behind. Aroma is light chocolate with some caramel and earthy hops. Taste is earthy hop bitterness with some citrus and a little bit of dark fruits with an earthy hop bitterness and light citrus finish. Medium to heavy body with a slight alcohol warming and light carbonation. This is a nice brew with a lot going on and I really enjoyed sampling this one.

Aroma is dark fruit and a noticeable alcohol presence. The flavor is caramel/butter scotch, malts, dark fruit and some alcohol in the finish. Interesting ale, unique.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 pours a dark brown color (of course =) with a very small amount of head but lacing around the glass. Aroma took me by surprise here and loved it. A very sweet aroma. Full of dark fruit, chocolate, caramel, and toffee. Took me by surprise and loved it. In the taste I picked up some smokiness that I didn’t pick up in the aroma. The beer starts off sweet like the aroma but then dives into a burnt second half. Burnt roasted malt. Small amount of heat is still there even after the aging.
Mouthfeel is a little bit on the watery side but still enjoyable. Sticky.
