Opaque very dark brown beer. Aged malt nose and a little chocolate. Surprisingly fresh palate, a little bit soft. Minerally malt. Chocolate that isn’t bitter or sweet. Biscuity malt. A little hop left. Smooth and still very drinkable. Wish I had caught this one in it’s hey day. Still good although the hops have clearly faded.

Bottle
Appearance - Deep brown, creamy lacing
Aroma - Wood, cherries, raisins, decomposing leaves
Taste - Cherries, honey, hops, molasses, chocolate

This brew is a nice addition to the Jewbelation series. Perhaps the aging added a light, almost naturally earthy flavor to the already rich and sticky-sweet body. This beer was simply fantastic - and now I have to try to get the others!

A big thanks to Chipalsa for getting this one. Geeeyyoooowww!!! Nose is light bourbon with some rich ass caramel and cherry aromas. Tons of molasses with some wafts of alcohol in the nose. Body is dark brown with a caramel colored head. Creamy body. Taste is molasses all the way with some light raisin, caramel, and an oxidized port wine-like flavor. Good stuff!!

The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. This aroma is full of chocolate and roasted malt, much like the Jewbelation 9. The flavor is more complex that the aroma, which is a good thing in my opinion. I get the same chocolate and roasted malt that I got in the aroma, but that is complimented by some molasses and a little bit of pine flavor from the hops. The alcohol is also quite present in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

355ml bottle from the Jewbelation variety box pours almost black in color with a small off-white head that leaves some thin spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits with some hints of chocolate, citrus and earthy hops. Taste is chocolate and caramel malty sweetness with some dark fruits and an earthy and citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. Medium body and soft carbonation with some warming sensations from the alcohol. A really nice ale and was a pleasure to have sampled.

Bottle shared by Maniac at the Irish Chanukah tasting. Pours clear dark tawny with a medium, fizzy light tan head, medium-short retention with light lacing. Aroma is heavy caramel malt, light chocolate notes, dates, figs, and plums with light spicy alcohol and earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with medium hops and bitterness, smokiness and some peat notes, dark fruity esters and a sweet finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

Butters (3778) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Sampled at the Irish Hanukkah Tasting. Sampled in line with the other ones from the vertical collection box. Clear brown with good dark tan head. Sweet plum and raisin, molasses, caramelized brown sugar, woodiness, and a surprising amount of bitterness. Despite being so sweet, this one really dries the palate out quite a bit.

is this really 6 years old? just found at whole foods... lots of stuff in aroma, prunes and alcohol and roast and vanilla. fairly sweet, thick and syrupy and flat. this has a lot of good stuff throughout, and the alcohol is well-hidden, but could be better balanced.

Aurelius (4197) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Rich, pruney malt aroma with an alcohol punch. Dark brew with a one-finger, beady, light tan head. OK label. Chalky, cocoa, dark stewed fruits, prominent alcohol on the backend. In spite of 10 hops and 10 malts, this isn’t the most complex of beers, but it is a really good sippin’ brew -- especially on a dank night. Finishes out with some moderate roast, wood and a good hoppiness, the body is a bit starchy. Market Square Liquors - I think they broke this out of the Hanukkah pack as singles.

355ml brown bottle. Black pour, tan head with streaky lace. Nose has some sweetness, light alcohol, some fruitiness. Taste has moderate bitterness, dark fruits, chewy malts. Finish is chewy with some hop taste and bitterness. Full bodied, good carbonation. Mellow ale that has some barleywine attributes, has held up well with age.
