elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - MAR 13, 2013
22oz bottled December 1, 2010. Over 2 years old. Served at cellar temperature. Purchased from the beer cellar at Beverage World.

Pours very dark brown to black with a two finger brown head that settles to a small creamy cap and leaves a bit of lacing behind.

On the aroma, the whiskey hits you first and foremost, really nice, then it’s just layers of malt complexity, chocolate, molasses, vanilla, oak, coffee, toffee, overripe dark fruits of dates, figs, plums and raisins, some sinus-clearing alcohol. Excellent strength.

Flavor is amazing. Whiskey, vanilla and oak, dates, figs, plums, chocolate, coffee, molasses, fairly sweet, moderate bitterness, still some alcohol heat on the finish. Very complex and rich.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, sticky, creamy, good carbonation.

Very complex, flavorful, aromatic and enjoyable. Will need to snag at least one more bottle to tuck away for a while longer.

Batch no. 002 / Cases: 892. Bottled on: 12/01/2010. 22 oz bomber into a tulip glass. Pro tip: Let this one breath for a bit! A - Pours a dark, dark red/brown body. Appears black until held up to the light. Massive head forms, then settles into a fingers worth of light khaki foam. Super sticky lacing with long lasting retention. S - Holy mother of rye! Rye spice, sweet caramel, figs, maple, raisins, vanilla, oak, chocolate, pears...man this is a great smell. Very sweet with that distinct rye bite to balance things out. The interesting thing is that it really balances on the line between stout and barleywine without adhering to a real style. T - Rye spice, oak, vanilla, chocolate, raisins, and butterscotch. Not as impressive as the nose but its still awfully intriguing and unique. Very barleywine-esque with plenty of chocolate and barrel notes to shake things up a bit. M - Medium bodied and creamy with low to moderate carbonation. O - This is drinking very damn well right now! Very unique blend of beers with a fantastic rye whiskey edge on it. I was very impressed by this beer.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
2010 release containing Jewbelation 8-14, bottled 12/01/2010. 22 oz bottle courtesy of Chris. Pours deep chestnut with a moderate tan head that mostly remains and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose is incredibly complex, with big notes of molasses, rye barrel, roasted malts, molasses, with touches of espresso. The flavour is moderately sweet with molasses, roasted malts and oaky, whisky notes. There is a fair dose of hops as well, and the overall flavour is very complex. The finish dries out a bit, is slightly spicy and lingers with oaky notes. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a beautiful, complex strong ale. Aroma and flavour is impy-esque, but it is lighter in body than expected. A beautiful, complex blend of delicious brews. 2012-12-14

Opaque black - brown beer. Good sized fluffy pale tan head. Nice oaky nose. With 7 years worth of Jewbelation blended I was expecting a thick black tar of a beer, but the palate is surprisingly light. Also smooth and soft. Nice oaky vanilla dark malt with mild coffee. Creamy malt and a little rye spice. Sweet mild whisky. Subtle generic fruits in the undertone. Smooth finish. Really nicely joined up and very drinkable.

sonnycheeba (5148) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with thin fizzy tan head which quickly dissipates. Aroma is cookie and caramel malts, plums, grapes, candy sugar, oak, floral hops, and light brandy. Flavor is sweet malt forward with good dark fruit esters followed by oak and floral hops which add a touch of bitterness to balance the sweetness; light booze with a dry finish. Medium/full body and low carbonation.
