3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 750 cc bottle shared with JB. Poured into a stem glass. Black with minimal quickly fading head. Aroma is raisin, fig, brown sugar, molasses, and roasted malts. Flavour is roasted malts, dark dried fruit, spice, and subtle hops. Perhaps a bit sickly sweet for my liking. Minimal carbonation. Medium to full body.
Bottle part of the He'Brew birthday box from brother in law, damn these beers are strong as shit. Pours deep dark brown small head. Beginning of first glass is all booze on both nose and taste. As it warms get more subtext and less rubbing alcohol. Fig, molasses, raisin, root beer, herbal and medicine. Thick some syrupy parts and warming finish. Anyways watching a dark show and this fits. fcjack1 (276) - Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2017

I love this series and this one is no exception as a reborn version. Sticky sweet with malases and figs. The taste is rather bold. Chewy malts and dark espresso. Alcohol is right up front. Great. madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2017

Level 42 Bottleshare. Thanks to Leighton. Clear deep brown beer, a few pale tan bubbles for a head. Palate is comparatively light and semi dry, reasonable fine carbonation. Sweet and spice laden dark malts, alcohol spice. Some dark chocolate. Savoury sweet dark fruits. Light dry finish. Entertaining but lacks the complexity of some of the earlier anniversary beers and from a 17% monster you want a little more. Still good though.
November 2016 - Bottle share at Canary Wharf. Many thanks to Leighton for this very solidly, if perhaps ’politically incorrectly’, named beer! As ’He-brew Jewbelation Reborn’, 17%. Opaque black with a foamy tan head, leaving dotted lacing. Aroma is chocolate syrup, soil, ash. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is black pepper and booze, ash and earth, dusty, quite sugary. Doesn’t drink like it’s 17%. Interesting to try but I wouldn’t want much. (3.0)

Bottle care of Leighton, at level. It pours pretty opaque black with a medium tan head. The aroma is rich, filthy, liquorice, treacle, vanilla, cake chocolate, dark fruits, Horlicks and frangelico. The taste is rich, filthy, roasted malt, toasty, coffee, malt loaf, toasted nut, some boost, wood, earthy and spice with a warm, boosty finish. Full body and moderately, foamy carbonation. Not so much depth to . Not bad. Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle shared in London - picked up in NYC. Been aging this a few years. Pours deep amber-brown with creamy, beige nose holds well toasted malts, dried fruits, some earth, raisins, cherry. Medium to heavy sweet flavour with lots of ripe berries, a little cola, fruitcake, toasted caramel, light earthy bitterness. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with plenty of toasted sugars, more berries, toffee, some scorched earth. Not a ton of depth, but it drinks pretty good for its strength.
