Notes/Commercial Description:
How could we hope to top last year’s Jewbelation Sweet 16 with its cupcakes, unicorns, & Satan’s Ferrari birthday cake? massive challenge. So for Year 17, we threw in a whole new dimension to our shtick – we built our very own brewery! After 17 years of contract brewing, our first Shmaltz Clifton Park batch emerged 17 months after the first draft of the business plan. Coincidence? Renaissance means “Re-birth” in French & Italian. In Buddhism, the concept does not truly translate as “reincarnation” but instead as “becoming,” or a “stream of consciousness.” 11 syllables structure a haiku. Shakespeare penned 17 comedies. In The Simpsons episode “Duffness” Homer sings “When I was 17″ about buying his first beer with a fake I.D. “I drank some very good beer. I stayed up listening to Queen, When I was 17.” In The Office, Dwight recites Rule 17 that all Schrute boys must learn: “Don’t turn your back on bears, men you have wronged, or the dominant turkey during mating season.” Knowledge and growth come in many forms. It is taught that Nirvana is only attained when the soul transcends cycles of rebirth. Looks like Shmaltz just isn’t there yet. So with 17 malts, 17 hops, and 17% ABV, JEWBEL4TIONREBORN serves as another mark of our death as a contract brewer and proof of our conversion to a new life as brewery owner…… L’Chaim!!!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Purchased as part of the 2013 Holiday gift pack. 17 malts, 17 hops, 17% ABV.

Brewed with 2-row, spelt, vienna, munich, rye, wheat, einkorn, emmer, chocolate, crystal rye, dark crystal, roasted barley, roasted wheat, flaked oats, caramunich 40, carapilsner and kiln amber.
Hopped with warrior, Columbus, Apollo, palisade, Golding, tettnang, ahtanum, cascade, Czech saaz, centennial, Chinook, santiam, simcoe, summit, Amarillo, citra, and crystal.

Pours out to an apparently clear near black with walnut highlights, forming a espresso crema head of medium tan with superior retention and lacing. Carbonation is a little on the softer side, ~2.0 carbs or so. The nose is of soy sauce, black walnut, dark molasses, chocolate syrup and fruity hops. The mouthfeel is syrupy, uber-dense, rich and oily. The taste is a recap of the aroma, however there is a pronounced woody note and more roast character than I picked up in the nose. The roast character is akin to that expected in a RIS, and it adds a moderate tartness to the mouthfeel (too much roasted malt and the tartness subtracts from the mouthfeel and drinkability for me). Brown sugar, pumpernickel crust, prune juice, dates and figs linger on the palette into the long aftertaste. Bitterness is moderate, enough to balance the huge malt bill nicely. The alcohol adds a peppery flourish to the finish, but is otherwise well hidden. Interesting cardamom note is barely perceptible. Very very subtle cardboard note but not enough to interfere or detract.

This is from the new Clifton park brewery and I'm happy to say, tastes just as good as all their other jewbelation beers. This beer is super-sturated and rich, demanding to be sipped over an hour. 1/2 bottle later and I'm feeling it. Yummy stuff.

Dark, sweet, syrupy. This is some strong medicine. Splashed out 1/3 each for son-in-law, his dad and meself on Father's Day. Really packs a wallop. Very little head, but so many complex flavaz in there, smoky and lots of spice and fruit. Mouthfeel is great, like Robitussin with exactly the same effect.
