Batch 001/999 cases. Shmaltz Funky Jewbelation barrel aged release #6. Bottle 3/6/2012.

APPEARANCE: Dark brown, good clarity for what it is. Dense foamy head leaving tons of lacing on the glass.

SMELL: Deep barrel elements, dry wood, bourbon soaked wood, smoke. Good character in the nose very inviting, the tannins seem to be seeping out.

TASTE: Chocolate, raisin, tart grape, dry oak, vanilla, earthy hop, wood. Starts sweet to tart, ending dry to earthy and tart. Interesting flavor, the barrel is very expressive. The soured element if you will is hard to ignore, yet is not over the top. Some tasters may not be ready for this extreme taste. Nice vanilla, chocolate, sherry, and berry fruit elements.

FEEL: Full bodied, slick on the palate, but also smooth. Mild carbonation. Pretty damn easy drinker though it is to be savored. Big taste as they say.

OVERALL: Once you wrap your palate around this, it is quite nice. Drinks like a barrel aged wonder, would be interested to see what this would do in deep space/another time.

This beer was a bunch of mixed up flavors that didn't go well together. Taste like there was a hint of vinegar in it, didn't even finish the bomber it was that bad.
