A bit weak in comparison to the rest of the Jewbelations I’ve had. The pour is dark brown wtih a thick and creamy beige head. The nose is overly sweet with nice notes of hop and roasted malts. The taste is too sweet with a bit of a lactose afertaste. A nice roast and an overall nutty malt. Also picking up notes of coffee, burnt malts, chocolate and earth. A thick and surprisingly creamy taste.

12 oz bottle from the holiday sampler pack. 5-6 years old. This was the "Mystery Jewbelation" included in the 8-pack. Pours opaque dark brown with a thin beige head that holds for a couple of minutes before it collapses into a ring of big-bubbly foam. Aroma is powerfully pungent--highly boozy, woody, raisins, Australian black licorice, molasses. Taste is very sweet (could get cloying) with a bitter finish. Carbonation is average, mouthfeel is oily, body is huge. Although I didn’t care for the smell of this beer--it was too overbearing--the taste more than made up for it. As much of a sipper as the 15 was.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - NOV 25, 2011
On tap at the Grad in late 2010. I felt this one, as well as the 11 and 12 were the best offerings of this series. Good licorice, chocolate, and smoky notes after being aged out about 5 years.

flatmatt (1125) - Northville, Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours extremely deep brown to black with a light tan head. Cocoa and dark fruit aromas, molasses with some hops as well. Flavor has some cocoa, coffee, touch of smoke, molasses, against a background of nonspecific hops. Kind of a light take on an imperial stout; this doesn’t quite seem like a 10% beer.

portableparty (1912) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle to snifter. Pours dark brown with a soapy kahki head that fades to a film. Aroma is malt rasins and sugary chocolate molasses. Taste is rasins and molasses with a chocolate bitter finish. Palate is medium and chaulky and finishes dry.

DalzAle (1988) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle thank to NYbeer. Dark red pour, little carbonation and an aroma of boozy cherry and caramel. Flavor is also rich caramel and cherries and very boozy.

bleeng (1526) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2011
12 oz bottle. Solid black. Sweet, sugary, viscous nose. Taste is very malty, with lots of chewy caramel and a huge big body. Heavy beer. Alcohol is hidden beneath the sugar and caramel. A sipper.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 19, 2011
bottle thanks to Kyle, pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma jumps out of the glass, green grapes, dark fruits and brown sugar. Flavor is sweet caramel and a burnt sugar note with figs and plums in the finish with just a hint of booze. I like it.

obguthr (3862) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2011
Molasses and walnut aroma. Mahogany, medium tan head, some lacing. Molasses and fig flavor, a little on the sweet side. A little thistle appears at midpalate. Walnut and charred oak finish. Alcohol fairly well masked, medium bodied. Not quaffable, but makes for a nice sipper with good food pairing potential. I’m thinking brisket. The hoppiest of the Anniversary ales from Shmaltz that I’m working through at the moment. It starts perhaps a touch too sweet and finishes with a bit much char, but it’s still a pretty nice rustic brew.

VertBaconStrips (2083) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2011
The rebrew version. Somewhat put up against against the 11. Deep red brew with a very thin cap. Slightly spicy caramely nose with citrus highlights. Plums, pepper, candy, chocolate, caramel, nectarine, licorice, dirt, prunes, everything - but it works. Good flavour and highly drinkable with hints of alcohol to keep you from chugging it. Cocoa, pepper, tart, slight medicinal stuff, molasses or maybe burnt sugar, light fruit. The taste is decent but nothing all that interesting. Sticky finish with licorice and alcohol. The 11 is much better.
