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!!!

Had a bottle fresh and and could barely finish it. This bottle had about a year and a half of age on it. The smell was amazing, vanilla, chocolate and bourbon. Taste was of coconut bourbon, Carmel and vanilla. Still quite boozy even after year and half of age. Those who still have a bottle or 2 in the cellar I recommend gaining a few more years to let it mellow out even more. This was so much better with some aging compared to fresh

Picked up a couple last year. Loved it and finally getting around to the 2nd.
look: Very dark crimson. Huge mocha head on the pour, for such a big beer.
smell: Decadent dark fruit and caramel.
taste: More of the same. Just delicious, and rich.
overall: Guess i'm the minority in thinking this is an elite brew. Not sure if that means my palate sucks or the opposite :) In any case, loving this. The booze is there but well hidden for 17%. Kudos.
