aroma....bourbon, coconut, vanilla dream. It is duplicated in flavor. Palate is sexy smooth soft and luxurious. So so good. Over the top! jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2011
22oz bomber from Pinch poured into a snifter. Batch 2, bottled 12/1/2010. Pours a dark black with about a finger of tan head. Strong whiskey aroma with some graham cracker, vanilla and caramel. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Taste of vanilla, alcohol, caramel, some chocolate and coffee and a whole lot of bourbon. Full bodied with a thin yet creamy texture. Soft carbonation and a long alcohol and whiskey finish. Overall, awesome. I would love to be able to afford to drink this every night. Caskalefan (168) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2011 The best Jewbelation by a stretch with a syrupy body and esters of chocolate, coffee, smoke, figs, dates, prunes, plums, spices, toffee, anda hefty underpinning of Sazerac which helps to dry out the finish a tad.
A real sipper,and a genuine pleasure. kmashore (1) - Alabama, USA - MAR 2, 2011 does not count
I am a huge fan of the He’brew Jewbelation beers and this one is my favorite by far. Great tasting, I wish I could get more of it as I have only found it in the limited release "Beer Menorah" gift set. Signalwriter (86) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2011
What a fine beer, shared a bomber (Batch 002/892, December 2010) with Ferdinand Hepperle and Barbara Nytes-Baron in North Bergen. I can’t top the great descriptions here from fans like Ugsmash and Tmoney99, but the adjectives are just right: “vinous, caramel, and molasses sweetness,” for example. The color, the aroma, the tastes (complex and smooth) – make this recipe a big winner. And approved by a rabbi!

Aroma is - WOO WEE, strong, malty, woody, with an alcohol underpinning and yeasty and floral hints. It pours a pretty chocolaty brown that is opaque save at the edges, with a fairly good beige head. Flavor is - not for the faint of heart! Quite strong, it is woody, malty, a little honey sweet, slightly fruity, slightly nutty, with a good alcohol edge. Texture is smooth and edgy, leaving a woody and tingly finish. DanBrewer (16) - Hummelstown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Smells like heaven in a glass, sweet, malty, whiskey, oak, vanilla. Dark beer with a dark tan head that faded quickly. Taste like it smells, but through in a little fruit mid taste and caramel towards the end. I love this beer, and doubt I will find it again.

Nice carbonation which contributes to the wonderful aroma. nutty - woody - dark fruit and whiskey. Smells great.
Appearance is perfect and a head that stays around
Taste is delicious. Perfect whisky flavor and balance - I could drink this rich treat all night. not too sweet at all. In fact maybe a little dry on my palate.
Overall - glad I bought as much as I could - awesome beer - My favorite from hebrew. Butters (4063) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2010 On draft at Brick Store Pub in decatur. Pours a clear brown with chestnut brown highlights and great sticky light brown head. Nice sweet purple grape, and raisins and soy sauce and just amazing. Very rarely do I ever drink order more than one glass of the same beer at a bar, but this one was my order for the rest of the evening. More notes of tobacco, and butterscotch came out later in the night. HOLY HELL.... This is amazing. RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Deep mahogany color with a dense, creamy tan head. Nice whiskey and vanilla aroma. Delicious vanilla infused flavor of caramel candies and pralines with light spice notes from the rye. Off dry but seems sweeter. Excellent.
