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!!!

Have had this in the cellar for the past year, and didn't have the patience to let it sit any longer.

Pours with a surprising 1F of brown head over the thick, black body ... some mahogany on the edges.

Aromas are full of black strap molasses, lots of oak, tree bark, and some hops in the background.

Mouthfeel is of course very sticky, but with an impressive level of carbonation for this high ABV crusher. Flavors are dominated by charred wood (but different from Rauchbier), dark unsweetened chocolate, oak, molasses, and pumpernickel. Still pretty hot, but that's to be expected.

My goodness, this goes down slow. Probably a good thing.

Simply incredible what they did with this beer.
