bottle - Pours very dark amber with a tan head. It has an aroma of dark fruit, malt, and bourbon. The flavor is very sweet with ample bourbon character. Full bodied. The barrel aging was kind to this tasty brew.

This beer came out of nowhere. Well, not nowhere. The Brick Store Cellar where it had been aging for a few years. Pours nearly black with smallish head. Scent is a spicy mix. The flavor is sweet and reflects the blended nature of the beer. Thickish body. Served in cool glass. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

Aged three years. Pours a lovely dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is sweet molasses with hints of bourbon. Taste is sweet malt with a little molasses. After taste is clean with a little bitterness.

Bottle Batch 2-2010. Ruby dark brown with a thin head. Big beauty of an aroma.... Smells great with boozy whiskey, figs, and vanilla. Whiskey and molasses sweetness, good burn of alcohol while remaining very drinkable. Finishes long with a hint of the rye at the end.

In short: A sweet, boozy and woody dark ale. Aggressive without class. Just ok.
How: Bottle 12oz, consumed when many months of age.
The look: Near black body with ruby highlights topped by a small beige head.
In long: Nose has some nail polish, sensation of watered down various hard liquors (brandy, cognac, etc.), toasted wood. Taste is a whole mix bag of stuff. I noted toasted rye bread, coconut, a shot of whiskey, a lot of toasted brown sugars, a shot of brandy, dried crunchy caramel, vanilla, dark liquorice, more… I could go on. Not really a complex beer, just lots of flavor elements put together. Alcohol is quite apparent, feels even higher than its 10.5%. This is an very sweet beer, even for a 10% brew. Not sure how to explain this but I this blend version tasted sweeter than some of its higher abv components (I had its individual components before). This is a sweet boozy beer but without the richness and corpulence I expect from a such a beer. Drinkable but not really enjoyable. I’m not gonna close this rating with my usual sarcastic bad taste bad taste comment, no jew stereotype joke this time, because I’m certain if the brewer of this jewish-themed brewery had a dollar for each bad jew stereotype joke he heard he would take all that money and put it in a high interest savings account.

Batch no: 2/892 cases. Bottled on 12/1/2010. Bomber. Sweet caramel aroma with dark fruit notes and just a touch of booze. Pours deep chestnut brown with a little bit of light brown head and a bit of lacing. Sweet caramel malt flavor that marries well with the dark fruit notes. Finishes extremely smooth with the sweetness carrying through to the end with just a hint of booze. Delightful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shmaltz Barrel Aged Release #3

Batch No. 002; Cases: 892; Bottling Date: 12/1/2010

3/09/2011: He’Brew Vertical Jewbelation (100% Barrel Aged Ale ~ A Blend of All Seven Recipes of Jewbelation Aged in Sazerac 6 Year Rye Whiskey Barrels.)... Aroma: Milk chocolate; caramel, caramel, CARAMEL; vanilla; MOLASSES; a hint of rye - more rye is apparent when the beer warms. Appearance: Very deep brown color that’s nearly opaque with ruby highlights; dense dark beige head that slowly collapses to leave a lasting, frothy crown. Flavor: Deeply and richly caramelizes malts, chocolate, vanilla, molasses, and a detectable amount of tasty barrel char; lots of citrusy hops and bitterness interwoven throughout; alcohol venting in the boozy finish; moderate, but balanced bitterness overall; slightly dry. Palate: Full-bodied; creamy and smooth; heavy, but mellow in the mouth. Overall: Quite tasty and complex; better than 13, but probably not quite as good as the 9, 10, 11, 12, or 14 were individually; also, how does one blend 8 beers, the majority of which are greater than 10% alcohol, age in rye barrels and then end up with a beer that is only 10.5% ABV? Just another thing that makes me go "Hmmm..."

1 pt 6 fl oz bottle (10.5% Alc. by Vol.) from Dutch’s in Cincinnati, OH. Rating #209 for this beer.

EtTuCthulhu (900) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUN 26, 2013
The color is an opaque dark reddish brown color with a large tan head, and the aroma toasted caramel malts, sweet fruit, and a hint of booze. The taste is quite sweet and mildly umami, and the palate combines a thin and slick texture, long finish, soft carbonation, and a full body. As a note, the high alcohol content is VERY well hidden here.

I keep thinking these beers can’t possibly get more complicated. The bourbony spicy textures of the sazerac barrels are pretty apparent. As are the multitude of other flavors, from bread and caramel, to dark fruit and nutmeg.

Oxidation dominates the smell, like wet cardboard. The flavor is a bti fruity, a bit stouty, a bit boozy, a bit oxidized. Not great.
