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

Strong aroma is malty, woody, a little syrupy. Pours a deep coffee brown with a fairly thick, if not too persistent tan head. Flavor has molasses, roast malt and woody hops notes with more than a hint of miso - and an alcohol bite like an angry pit bull. It is on the sweet side, but not grossly sweet. Texture has very firm, oily, syrupy body, though fizz level leaves a bit to be desired. Whoa, it’s already hit me like a speeding MARTA bus! Finish is lip-smacking, woody, malty, syrupy. A perfect beer to drink on the first day of Hanukkah, even if you’re not Jewish. Well, I have some good friends who are Jewish, and that’s no lie.

This guy sat in my cellar for a few years, held up pretty good. Pretty malty balanced bitter, and no vinagary barleywine flavor that you might expect from an aged beer. Totally hasn't fallen off yet.

Pours a very dark brown, settles into the glass with a black body and a big, foamy light brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, cocoa, dried dark fruits, hints of bitter hops and coffee. Lots of toasted malt, roasted malt, bitter burnt hops, bitter chocolate, pretty potent booze presence. Body is thick and syrupy, sticky and sweet, medium-low carbonation and a slight alcohol burn. Overall this one is a big, boozy sipper. It's held up pretty well for being a couple years old.

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled in 9/2012. Pours dense pitch black color with a 2 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big chocolate, cocoa, molasses, toast, toffee, dark bread, raisin, prune, leather, tobacco, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted/bready malt, dark fruit, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toffee, toast, dark bread, raisin, prune, leather, tobacco, light char, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of roast/char/herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toffee, toast, dark bread, raisin, prune, leather, tobacco, light char, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of dark/roasted/bready malt, dark fruit, and earthy hop flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and no cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and very full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and lightly syrupy/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a moderate warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent strong ale. All around great complexity and balance of dark/roasted/bready malt, dark fruit, and earthy hop flavors; and smooth to sip on slowly for the huge ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

"For our Schmaltz Sweet 16, it's all cupcakes and unicorns this round!" Brewed in the style of an American Strong Ale, released as a 16th anniversary ale in 2012. This is the lower gravity version brewed for restrictive states, 11.8% ABV. Released as a one-off beer in 22 oz. bottles and on limited draft.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle to a snifter glass. Served above 53º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a frothy crisp head of a caramel mocha color over a very dark brown near black body. Retention is above average and lacing is light and spotty. 3.5

(Smell) Caramel bread malts, grainy malts, german chocolate cake. The aromas seem dense and heavily bodied. Potency is moderate. 3.5

(Taste) Grainy chocolate and caramel malts forms a boozy and busy flavored beer, but not one that is an easy drinker. A fairly slow sipper with pinches of sharp alcohol amongst a softly sweet and mildly acidic malt body. Finishes with a nip of sweet alcohol. 3

(Mouthfeel) Texture is moderately syrupy, medium sticky and medium/heavy dry. Carbonation is moderate generating a mellow frothiness but a spritely crispness on the finish. Body is medium/heavy for the style, heavy overall. Balance is sharply boozy and syrupy sweet over bitter and tart. Alcohol presence is high and there are few off characters aside from an intense ethanol graininess to pair. 3

(Overall) Maybe this beer is representative of a rebellious teenager, as the finished product approaches what would seem like a mixture of hard liquors and syrup-based medication, maybe a high school party cocktail while the parents are away. This does not make the beer easy to drink nor very enjoyable. I did not think that a year or two could cause a beer this high on gravity great suffering, but I was ultimately not fond of this beer. I think trying to push the alcohol content to match the brewery age gets old around 12%/years or so, pushing it further just approaches desperate to market and sacrifices quality and balance to the naive novelty of booze. I'm getting too old to find excitement in overly boozy beers and would sooner appreciate a well balanced and yet lower gravity ale. I'd pass on this one. 3

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

A: poured into a snifter to a deep and viscous black topped by a two finger dense dark tan head that retains well and leaves some lacing
S: smells of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, dark fruits, molassess and some hop bitterness. not a lot of alcohol on the nose which is surprising
T: taste is chocolate and roasted malts with some coffee. slight bitterness but no discernable hop flavors. a little alcohol, some dark fruits, burnt sugar, charred wood and molasses. swallow is big and sticky with some alcohol notes but a lot of sweet maltyness with caramel, and chocolate covered espresso beans. slight oily hop bitterness as well
M: big and thick in the mouth with soft carbonation and a drying finish from all the alcohol that's a little oily as well.
O: Holy crap is all I can say. There isn't nearly as much complexity as Jewbelation 13 which was just layer after layer of flavors but this beer is more like an IRS on steroids. Very malty at this age but surprisingly tame when it comes to perceived alcohol flavors. the alcohol comes out a lot more as this beer warms up though. It's still a pretty stunning beer.

Aged 18 months

Appearance: rock solid milk chocolate head with body as near to black as it gets

Aroma: port & dark chocolate, prunes; deep, dark, and addictive; rum; rich, sweet, dried fruit aromas are crazy

Taste & Mouthfeel: dark caramelized fruit flavours start things off, but rapidly transition to beautiful and strong cocoa that when paired with unrestrained alcohol burn make for a memorable finish; nothing held back, it's in your face intense flavour - small sips advised; velvety texture accentuates the sense of creamy hot chocolate - that's been liberally doused with port; the interplay between fruit and chocolate flavours is perfect and lacking any bitterness that can come the dark malts

Overall: this is for a cold winter night, paired with a rich chocolate cake, and throw in some raspberries/blackberries

Consumed June 21st (first day of summer 2014!) from a bomber kept at 48 degrees F since purchase in June of 2013. Poured into a Samuel Adams "perfect pint" glass.

Beer is totally black. Extremely deep ruby highlights when held to strong, intense light. A two finger light brown head forms during the pour and lingers for quite some time, aided and abetted by both good carbonation and the shape of the beer glass (I guess). Very nice, uniform sheeting that leaves nothing behind with each tilt of the glass.

Aroma notes include alcohol, subtle mint/herbal smell. Some cocoa, a trace of pepper, prunes. A dash of wet pennies on the pour dissipates quickly. As it warms, a nasty garlicy/onion note becomes prominent. Summit hops, perhaps? All in all, not a very aromatic beer and what is there is not very pleasing.

On the palate: slightly sour milk chocolate malt, alcohol heat then bigger and longer-lasting bitterness than I had been anticipating. A little anise and... nutmeg? Not very complex or deep. The panoply of flavors reported by other reviewers is either beyond my ability to discern or... let's just say that.

Mouthfeel is thick, creamy and smooth; my guess is that there are oats in here. Alcohol heat is front and center, close to but not crossing the threshold into overbearing.

A few sips and I'm feeling this one already. The advertised 16% ABV seems to be accurate. Not as good as Jewbelation 12, which was my introduction to Schmaltz and still my favorite beer from this brewery. As far as style goes: this might as well be a Russian Imperial Stout based on what I experienced.

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

Appearance - The beer was a dark brownish black color with a very modest white head.

Smell - The booze jumps out as part of the aroma. As the same time one really notices the malt.

Taste - The booze is noted but it is not overpowering. The sweet malts leave an impression, aligning with notes of sweet dark fruits and malts. Toward the back the back, the booze becomes more apparent. I had one of these in July and did not like it as much as I do not. I well balanced bourbon aged beer.

Mouthfeel The mouthfeel is smooth is little carbonation. The bourbon is quite smooth, and is far from hot. No burning of the alcohol is noted.

Overall - This is not a elite beer, but I would certainly drink it again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Really dark, thick, and totally crazed malt concoction. So malty and rich and alcoholic, it's ridiculous. Vast aromatics of malt roasting and burning with alcohol fumes rising to the brain.

My wife and I took sips-- "Licorice," I say. "Molasses," she says. Intensely sugary with deeply roasted and even charred flavors. Massive burnt sugar and a bitter aftertaste. There must be some hops in this to slightly balance the malty sweetness.

It's hard to rate this for "drinkability" or even "sippability," but if you think of this as a liqueur it makes more sense. The candy-like quality is part of the charm. Purchased the bottle over a year ago at Grapevine Liquor in Denver. If any beer can take a little aging, this is one.

Review from 2013 tasting notes:
Poured this into a chalice, just a little bit! Looks near black, lacks head, however rich, creamy tan lacing is seen as I tilt the glass on its side. Looks like I'd expect 16% of liquid to look.
Smells of dark fruit/ chocolate, nutty, raisin, phenols, hint of vinegar?
Tastes like the smell initially. Dark fruit (plum/ fig) hits me hard, followed by a long spicy burn and a satisfying creamy, sweet, medium carbonated mouthfeel. It's hard for me to describe huge strength beers like this. Better than i thought based on seeing reviews here? Yes. While impossible to pick apart 16 hops in this beast (much less tell apart even two), I think Schmaltz did achieve something here. It all adds up to where the hops work to offset the sweetness of the dark plum. Something to respect. Like when I first sipped DFH 120 minute.

Bottled November 2012

Very dark brown, nearly black, with a surprising amount of tannish head. Initial head evolves into a bubbly ring around the edge of the glass. Very little lacing.

Big sweet malty aromas, brown sugar, hints of chocolate, dark fruits, alcohol fumes.

Very sweet. Caramelized dark fruits, brown sugar again, woody notes, booze.

Sticky, chewy, warming body.

Well shit. 16% ABV means 16% ABV. This is a boozy beer and it won't let you forgot it til the next morning. Flavors are good, not great. I expected more especially with some age on it. Good sipper.

Its a lot too handle, very alcohol forward taste, almost like you're drinking a glass of brandi. Goes great with a dessert, flan or ice cream, because it also has a hint of sweetness and cutting it with something mellows out the alcohol potency. This is for the extreme drinker.

Now this is a massive ABV beer, one I enjoyed in several increments over the course of an evening, poured from the bottle into a goblet. Nearly pitch black with a brownish tinge and brown foam, looks like motor oil. Smells as sweet and boozy as you'd expect but without a lot of strong roasted barley or black malt character, more sweet and spicy with woody notes and an undercurrent of purple grape juice. Tastes like milk chocolate cake, dates and raisins, licorice, blackstrap molasses, oak, rum, vanilla, clove, unlit tobacco, another brown spice (maybe nutmeg?) ... There is yet another sweet flavor that almost veers into maple territory. Maybe some coffee, but by this point my tongue is pretty savaged. One is inclined to plumb this brew for new layers of flavor and while the aforementioned list does suggest a wide range of malty and sweet flavors, the 16 hops are almost impossible to discern at the individual level and instead there is a medicinal earthy flavor that blends together with the massive spicy alcohol burn. Drinking this beer in a mindful fashion is like walking into a grotto, looking for new caverns ... Except that just when you think you stumble onto some new passage, you come face to face with a huge grizzly bear named Fusel and have to beat a hasty retreat. This comparison notwithstanding, its a fairly fun experience. Very sweet and warming, makes the mouth and lips numb and leaves a medicinal burn as its calling card. Of course this brew is thick, chewy, and dextrinous, although maybe less so than one would expect (?) ... Its obviously pretty attenuated to contain this much alcohol. Aging might mellow this out. An interesting experiment and not soon forgettable. Curb your enthusiasm around the insane malt and hop bills though. You won't be able to pick them all out.

Had a .3l glass at Beveridge Place in Seattle.

Appearance - dark brown to black, slight head, not much lacing.

Smell - not very much aroma, surprisingly. Maybe this beer was too cold from the tap, but I did sip it over 30 minutes, and didn't get the aroma I was expecting.

Taste - very boozy in a pleasant way. Sweet and complex.

Mouthfeel - creamy and full.

Overall - I liked this beer quite a bit, but didn't love it. For all the 16 hops and 16 malts, and 16% ABV, it didn't quite come together. There's a lot going on in terms of flavor, but I probably wouldn't go back and order another. Pretty dangerously high ABV!

22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. I have been eyeing this bottle for a while now, so I know this beer is about a year old now, but I doubt the 16.00% abv has mellowed much. This sounds like one of the craziest beers I've tried yet, so I have no idea what to expect.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours with a slight mahogany hue to it, but it appears as opaque motor oil black in the glass. Just over a finger of creamy chocolate mocha head. Some thin scattered lacing. Looks good.

S - Smells rich, dark, sticky, and boozy. Oak wood, bourbon, rum, chocolate, cream, chocolatey fudge syrup, brown sugar, & cold coffee. Some fruitiness present on the end, but it isn't what I would describe as dark fruit, more juicy & earthy. There is no denying that there is a lot going on here.

T - Sticky, boozy chocolate syrup. Caramel. Toffee. Oak wood. Dark malt / coffee bean roast. Brown sugar. Earthy yeast, taffy apples, and some other indistinct fruitiness on the finish. Notes of vanilla, as the beer warms. Again, there is a lot of stuff going on here. Layers of fudgey chocolate roasted goodness.

M - Feel is smooth and creamy, with a long sticky candied, malty, caramel finish.

Overall, a big, bold, and brave beer. Definitely not as hot and messy as others have said, so maybe a year in the bottle did it some good. Sticky, sweet, and hot, but not overly so, and at no point is the massive 16.00% abv apparent, although I'm sure it is destined to doom me. A recommended slow sipper.

My parents were in the Hitler Youth, but some of their best friends are/were Jewish. I've had one or two other brews from this brewery, but I was saving this one for a special occasion. In this case, putting up the Christmas tree and watching OSU/Michigan.

It is a huge, sweet beer. Pouring it almost straight down a tall glass gave a huge dark brown head. A spectacle.

The taste is way sweet. It begs to be sipped. The aftertaste is so complex and cool. Totally worth it.

Overall, this is a great beer and I am glad I bought it. It aged fine. I guess it is a one shot deal and I will never be able to get it again.

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. Bottle aged approximately one year.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/2 inch light brown head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a bubbly center patch of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing slides slowly down the glass leaving a tight-knit sheet of foam behind.

S- Potent aroma of caramel, vanilla and oak. Quite sweet but the dark roast penetrates hard enough to make a nice contrast.

T- Sweetness at first with a slightly boozy kick but the burnt sugar flavor and dark roast evens things out. The dark roast lingers heavy in the aftertaste leaving notes of dark chocolate, coffee and toffee in its wake. Every sip seems like the alcohol will tip the scales in terms of drinkability but the other flavors push through hard enough to stop the heat in its tracks and make for a pleasant taste. There's also a decent amount of bitterness from the hops to keep everything sufficiently in check.

M- Slightly sharp from the booze and there's a small stinging in the throat as it goes down. Also kind of syrupy and sticky with medium-low carbonation and a full body.

O- I always enjoy Jewbelation this time of year. It's a nice, affordable strong ale that goes down pretty easy even though it has an intensely high ABV. Good for a cold night such as tonight.

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

appearance: Very dark, nearly opaque ruby. Substantial tan head on the pour that mostly recedes.
smell: Fairly subdued and complex. Guess that sounds contradictory but I expected 16 malts and 16 hops and 16% Abv to be pretty in your face. Pretty tame though, malt forward, roasty and unique.
taste: More of the same. Much like the nose. Delish.
overall: Drank one of these fresh and loved it. Put one back for a year and loved it. This got trashed quite a bit. I'm a big port fan and have a soft spot for big abv sweet monsters, which this is. Gentle giant here. Not sure why it didn't get more love other than a general aversion to sweet beers.

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

Appearance: It has a nice deep brown (almost black) color to it. It has a nice mocha head that dies down moderately fast and leaves next to no lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of dark fruit (plums, raisins, grapes), sweet roasted malts, some chocolate and maybe some molasses.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some definite dark fruit (plums, raisins and grapes), some chocolaty notes, some sweet roasted malts, some coffee, molasses and an earthy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

He’brew Jewbilation Sweet 16 has pretty much no head, but there is a slight bit of cream colored foam at the top. The appearance is very dark brown, with a few visible bubbles shooting up. The aroma is very strong- alcohol, caramel, prunes, dark cherries, and overall dark malt. Flavor is of all those elements, and one picks up a dark bread crust, dark brown sugar, and even some bitterness to balance the rich sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium and chewy, with some alcohol burn and carbonation prickle. He’brew Sweet 16 finishes semi-dry, sweet, rich, and tasty. But, drinkability is low and poor. Overall, this is most excellent, but one might find it too intense to enjoy.

Pours dark as night with a half finger head of a mocha colored head that dissipates slowly and leaves a thin ring of lacing. Smells of cocoa, roasted malts, lots of dark fruit like raisin and plum, molasses, and brown sugar. Taste starts with lots of roasted milk chocolate and sweetness. Getting a dark fruit presence as well. The middle brings more roastiness, as well as molasses and toffee and more dark fruit characteristics. Getting a spiciness from the hops. Already getting the booze. The finish is milk chocolate, tiny hint of vanilla, dark fruits, grapes, and roasted malts combine with tons of sweet molasses, toffee, and brown sugar. Definitely get an astringent hop bitterness with an earthy, grassy flavor to go along with the sweet chocolate and dark fruits. A vinous quality to it. Also dry on the finish. Really boozy with a big warming sensation as it goes down. Full body with a creamy and sticky mouthfeel. Not as much of a mess as I thought it would be. This beer is not a lost cause. Just a huge, intense beer that would really benefit from some age. Could be a really nice beer 2 years down the road.

Pours menacing and black with no light , not even around the edges. A little thick but not so thick like oil. Had a fair head of beige foam that fell fast and left a big ring with enough lace to look at. Nose is dark and roasty. Chocolate and a bit of fruit. Hops take a backseat but I do get a little plum from the nose. Drinks smooth and a little hot. Milky chocolate and full malt. Molasses, brown sugar, raisins. Medium heavy body and very creamy.

Drinks hard with the alcohol but pleasantly so. The heat lingers at the back of the throat and the chocolate is divine. I got a few hints of spice on the nose but so far none of the cinnamon allspice and ginger that other people talked about. Maybe it needs to warm. Big beer. Really big beer.

Bottle poured into snifter

A - Pours a thick deep black body. Looks like a beast at first pour. Only a little light getting through the edges, but very dark

S - Sweet and roasty dominate the nose. Some dried fruit and dark chocolate.

T - Several flavors going on with the dark chocolate and roasted notes dominating.

M - Coats the mouth well. Nice full body, almost no carbonation

O - Pretty much what I expected from the description. It's a lot to tackle solo. For the price and ease of obtaining, I would keep a couple to drink over the next year.
