Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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!!!

A: This poured a nearly opaque black ruby with a little tan head.
S: It smelled like fresh oranges and rich dark chocolate, with some metallic hops and honey wheat bread.
T: It tasted like burnt sugar and molasses, with some metallic copper and bitter citrus zest and honey wheat bread, as well as some roasted coffee and rich dark chocolate. It had a bold bitter and sweet aftertaste with a lot of alcohol warming.
M: It was very thick and sticky with a little carbonation. Great big body.
D: This was a huge brew as expected. But it seems the excellent blend of scents and tastes has been overpowered by too much going on, and overwhelmed by the alcohol. Definitely a sipping beer. Will certainly improve with age, I look forward to trying this again in about 5 years. For now, it's way too rough around the edges. (Still one of the most incredible values on the market.)

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

App: Shit is black. Very dark pour, with almost no light passing through the pour. Typical proter like head with lack-luster retention and no lacing.
Smell: Deep roasted malt aroma, notes of coco, walnut, and alcohol volatility. Bready, with notes of pumpernickel.
Taste: Straight up booze taste. Very alcoholic, even more so than red wine. Notes of fig, raisin, and prunes. Sweet and lingering.
Mouth: Overall, fairly thin. Too boozy to be properly enjoyed. Strong for the sake of being strong.
