bottle thanks to Kyle, pours dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is brown sugar, green raisins, light booze. Flavor is dry roast, semi-sweet cocoa, very dry all around with nice hints of grassy hops and light alcohol finishing.

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Chewing tobacco nose, faint hints of dates. Clear mahogany, thin beige head. Body is surprisingly thin. Astringent charcoal flavor. Chalky in the finish. Alcohol completely unnoticeable. If the ABV is correct, this beer could get a person in trouble. Drinks like a light bodied irish stout. Not terribly exciting.

Indra (2593) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAY 9, 2011
12oz. bottle (Winter 2010 rebrew, [re-He’Brew?]). Sweet, roasty aroma, malty, darkly fruity and sugary, some licorice, molasses and toast. Dark brown in color, with an uneven, fine, ivory head that lasts. Flavor is predominantly malty, with dark fruits, light roast, and plenty of sweetness, countered somewhat by earthy, lightly bitter hoppiness, mostly appearing towards the finish. Effervescent and rather light on the palate for what it is, body is medium-full. Enjoyable. Thanks to Chris for the chance to try/rate this, one that I missed back in the day.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2011
Appearance: pours like burnt molasses. Tan collar and a thin head fades fast into a thin puddle which lingers in the middle. Swirls thick along the edges, no head and no lace.
Nose: molasses and melted chocolate mix while caramel nougat camps out in the middle. Dense and heavy. Polished dark leather and polished dark wood. Sundried and meaty figs and dates. Sweetly smoky in the back.
Palate: sweet, dense, thick, heavy, smoked, woody, twiggy. Cooked molasses and burnt caramel. Dries top of my tongue immediately. Leather burnt over black root and black earth. Tarry along the edges. Love how the burnt molasses, caramel, and smoke weave together seamlessly. Char and tar lurks along the edges. Leather atop the tongue.
Final Thoughts: I was a bit skeptical first going into this beer but by the end I was in love. Rich, decadent, and certainly a unique beer that might not be for everyone. Food in liquid form.

VertBaconStrips (2060) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - APR 5, 2011
Poured out a dark brown brew with deep red highlights, a small fizzy medium light brown cap that lives on as a ring and a smidgen of lacing. Has a brown sugar nose with coke, dry roast, a sweet citrus that is not at all strong, chocolate milky softness, almond nuttiness glues this together - the aroma has grown on me like a fine mold. The flavour did get better when this warmed and had a chance to evolve. Overall the taste is soft and gentle. Nuts and a slight sourness and a slow building bitter creep. The citrus and hard (not strong) bitterness are a bit of a deterrent here but that’s just cause I like the malt bill so much. Brown sugar, some roast, something else. Good malts but not much else helping this out. Ok carbonation, a bit astringent on each sip, medium bodied with a short lived bitterness. Okayish.

vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Pours dark brown with a mahogany hue and a generous tan head. The aroma is very doughy and bready with dark malt toastiness, cream, vanilla, cocoa, dark fruit and toffee. Medium / thin body with a moderate amount of semi-soft carbonation. The flavor is like a muted watery version of the aroma notes and is definitely on the malty side. The finish has a bit of hops and a bit of metallic and medicinal traits thrown in. Okay beer.

Cirrhosis (1192) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 17, 2011
Dark coca cola brown with a whole mess of small random bubble islands. Aroma is milder than I expected , some clove, earthy malt, soya sauce, maybe nuts. Meh. Taste is much the same but add in a coffee bitter finish. Beer is tasty but average, probably 6 years ago when this recipe was new my mind would have been blown but now its just white noise in a sea of “extreme brewing”

TheBeerGod (5168) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle - 12 ounce from the Hebrew sampler. Opaque dark brown with a moderate, frothy brown head. Aroma is sweet with caramel, malt, dark fruit, chocolate, powdery yeast and light toffee. Taste is chocolate, dark fruit, chewy caramel, toasted malt, dark bread, yeast notes and toffee. Body is medium-full and chewy with strong, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more chocolate, dark fruit, toasted malt, and toffee notes. Not very complex but very tasty nonetheless.

Dark pour with a tan head. Tight aroma but a nice, rich yet fairly dry chocolatey flavor.

I must say that the jewbelation vertical pack is a great Idea and a very unique opprotunity to try some beers that might be otherwise hard to find, such as this jewbelation 8 I am about to drink. It pours very dark brown with a very thick creamy beige head. Deep malty aroma with a very fruity character. molassas as well. Excellent Beer very flavourfull. Dark chocolate, fruit, caramel, and hops. This is a very bitter and floral tasting beer. It all comes in the finish but it is very nice. Mingles very well with the coffee like bitterness that also lingers in the finish. Great Beer! and I bope the rest are even better.
