otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2011
Appearance: dark browns and dark chocolates. Lovely head of tans and woods. Lace, collar, and some bubbles. Swirls puffy and nicely thick along the sides.
Nose: fudge, brownies, and dates all mixed together in the middle. Brush and twigs in the back, green leaves. Black root, earth, bakers chocolate cinnamon truffle dust. Chocolate covered raisins.
Palate: clean with raisins up front than dry and roasty. Chocolate and cinnamon and truffle powder. Chocolate graham crackers. Bit tart up front, tannic in the back. Of the earth, twiggy, black earth, black roots still covered in dirt. Prunes and chocolate covered raisins. Meaty and chewy over all.
Final Thoughts: it’s intriguing how all the Jewbelations share similarities but also are quite different. Like all the Schmaltz beers, I was skeptical at first and ended up loving the Jewbelation 10 and all others before and after.

Cirrhosis (1196) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 21, 2011
Cola brown with no cap just a single sad bubble floating on top. Aroma is mild but yummy, soya sauce , burnt sugar, hints of yummy malt but its hard to find. Taste is the same as aroma yummy but not really there. A spice shows up it taste that complements the burnt sugar, and a mild piney hop that I enjoy. Brew finishes bitter but a sweetness lingers on the tung. Taste is crisp and hints of coffee started to show up towards end of the glass. Good brew!

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2011
On tap at Brouwer’s (in 2011). Pours glossy black, with a medium-tan head. Nose is full of mildly burnt brown sugar, dark fruits, some chocolate and vanilla... almost like if you coated a smallish date in cookie dough. Delicious. This may be the best-balanced of the Jewbelations - it’s big, thick, and has a full mouthfeel, and while the alcohol is (somewhat) present, it retains a wonderful smoothness and balance that is lost in the later years of this series. Mostly sweet malts (almost like someone ground up a few whoppers and tossed them in here), but there’s a nice bitter roasty note on the finish. Man am I a fan of this beer - it’s just unlike anything else, and this is a great vintage.

DuffMan (6551) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 17, 2011
Bottle. Very dark brown, opaque, medium brown head. First to great the nose is cocoa, followed by a storm of molasses, light aniseed, and foggy fruit. Richly fudgey, burnt sugar, prunes, vanilla, dusty wood, and a bitter hoppy end. The most choclatey of the Jewbel series so far, and once again, delicious!

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Good dose of cocoa and coffee in the aroma. Flavor has quite a bit of licorice and hints of dark cocoa. Not bad.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle, from the Jewbelation Vertical Collection. Pours semi-opaque black, with a ruby hue. Thin, yet persistent off-white head, very nice lacing. Nose is dark fruit (dates? figs?), more dried fruit than fresh, some vinous notes that are reminiscent of dried berries. Some lifted notes, that are somewhere in the neighborhood of vanilla or coconut can be found as well. Smells a bit boozy, especially as it warms up. Flavours are well-integrated, and again driven by dried, figgy, fruit, with some roast and toast (toasted coconut perhaps?) coming through as well. Not as boozy in the mouth as the nose would suggest, thankfully. Solid.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - FEB 11, 2011
Pours almost black with a very thin head. Deep malty aroma, very fruity. Bold and malty with a slightly alcoholic bite. subtle hops. A very big beer. Very nice, but very very similar to the 9th. Good beer, But I feel like i have had it before.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2011
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, light diacetyl, burnt caramel, and slight dark ripe fruit. Poured brown/cherry-wood in color withe a medium-sized, tan/light brown head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of malt, slight roasting, light coffee, light hops, and burnt caramel. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, burnt caramel, and slight roast finish is dry. 10%ABV is completely hidden throughout. A real malt bomb.

deyholla (6514) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours a near clear brown with a slight red hue and a light brown head that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma has notes of dark fruits with toffee and dark fruits with a hint of backing alcohol. Flavor starts with dark fruits but has a growing chocolate note with hints of smooth toffee in the finish.
