A wonderful beer that steals from so many different styles that I guess it can only be categorized as an American strong. We thought it could be a porter or old ale or strong ale. Lots of caramel and quite sweet, this is really something special that I could have plenty more of. nearbeer (5362) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 9, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2007 750 ml, at about 60 F. Nearly opaque brown-black with a medium-sized and lasting head that leaves some frosty lace. Chocolate, raisin, and caramel aroma. Flavors of earthy and slightly sour molasses, fudge, toasted nut, slight charred wood and a hint of cherry are among the many flavors in this chewy beer. Big chocolate and malt presence is dried well by bitter-herb hops on the end, and just a touch of alcohol. Heavy, smooth body has some hop and alcohol tingle. Awesome brew, truly monumental. Only got better after being open (I put a cork in it) for 5 days, had to bump it up a point, even. mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Most of the Vertical Jewbelation gift pack beers are very similar in flavor. They are very hoppy. Which is why I like them. This ones mouthfeel is excellent. Eladerman (82) - Newburgh, Indiana, USA - MAR 23, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2008 This brew will bring a lesser man to his knees!! Plain and simple a VERY complex beer similar to an imperial stout but with more hops in the finish- EXCELLENT Brew!! ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle. Dark chocolate malt aroma with a very nice hop presence. Opaque with good sized light tan head and excellent lace. High alcohol profile with considerable hop presence. Has some qualities similar to an imperial stout. Dates, plums, molasses. Outstanding. A true winner and very underrated.

Very good beer. Dark roasted chocolate flavors, very nice smooth mouth feel, similar to a strong smooth stout.
I like this better than their Jewbelation Eleven. I had both of these on Tap at <a href="http://www.maxs.com">Max’s. TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - NOV 24, 2006
22 oz bottle. Pours to a beautiful, deep chestnut color, with a thick, creamy, tan head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose is excellent, with lots of good aromas of piney/citrus/herbal hop aroma, paired with sweet malt, dark toast, roast, and peppery alcohol. The palate is firm, with good dark malt, toasty, nutty, and biscuit malt flavors. paired with some mild roasty flavors. This beer finishes with more good malty and nutty flavor up front, then ends with some good piney bitterenss, followed with some soothing alcohol heat that warms and lingers. Jam packed with aromas and flavors, this is a hearty, delicious, strong ale, great for the winter/holiday season. Makes a great after work drink or night cap.

Wow, deep dark brown, inviting, light brown head, hang time there. Initially sweet, then a dense malty roasted aroma. Bitter, nutty flavor, roasted chocolate notes, good god this stuff is good. Good night. Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - NOV 11, 2006
On tap at Mahars. Poured dark red with a great frothy head. Aroma is very strong and piney. Flavor was pine and grapefruit with an amazing sweet finish. scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Deep chocolate brown, thick tan head (great lacing). Nose was very rich with notes of toasted milk chocolate, earth, pine, raisin, warm fig, and undertones of port. Dark fruity hop flavors lay on a wave of earth, caramel nut, chocolate, and a touch of alcohol heat. Well balanced from start to finish. Full bodied, medium carbonation and quite smooth, soft bittersweet finish. Very impressed with this sipper. It’s a must try in my book...
