COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Jewish tradition, 15 marks major commemorations: Passover (the Exodus), Sukkot (40 years of wandering), and Tu Bishvat (the New Year for Mother Nature) all start on the 15th day of the Hebrew month. 15 suggests a certain wisdom from experience: “Old is always 15 years from now.” – Bill Cosby. “We are always more anxious to be distinguished for one talent we do not possess than 15 we do.” – Mark Twain. After Andy Warhol, does 15 forever sound profound or frivolous? “In the future, everyone will be world famous for 15 minutes.” “Fame is the thirst of youth.” – Lord Byron. “The fact that my 15 minutes of fame has been extended is somewhat surprising to me and completely baffling to my wife.” – Barack Obama. For Matt EP: Hall of Famer Bart Starr rocked #15 as MVP in the Packers’ first two Super Bowl victories. “South Park” evolved from “Jesus vs. Santa” and is now entering its 15th season. “We’re rehabbed and ready for our 15 minutes of shame.” – Marilyn Manson. Lyrics from Barry Manilow’s 2011 album, 15 Minutes, released on QVC Network: “Make me a deal, I’ll sell my guts for glory.” “Fame and power are the objects of all men. Even their partial fruition is gained by very few, and that at the expense of social pleasure, health, conscience, life.” – Benjamin Disraeli. After 1,972,350 sets of 15 minutes of Shmaltz Brewing, I’ll hoist my Jewbelation Quinceañera and sing 15 rounds of ¡Viva la Evolución de He’brew! L’Chaim! Jeremy Cowan, proprietor

DSG (5657) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks eyes_wide_shut. Really dark brown to black with a bit of light brown foam. Aroma of malt, light roastiness, a bit of chocolate, a lot of alcohol and some fruity notes. Very sweet flavor with lots of malt and chocolate, some caramel, nutty Nutella notes and a drier finish. Full syrupy body.

Cirrhosis (1195) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 19, 2012
"Very dark cola brown with a thick creamy head for the style, roapy lacing is left behind with every sip. Sweet molasses, grape gum, strange spice, and for some very odd reason now trace of alcohol at the high 15%. Aroma and taste are surprisingly thin, I mean with every ingredient ever made by man thrown into one beer you’d think it would be thick and pungent but its not. Grape, apple, malts and lots of them, more flavour, other stuff, some things that taste like stuff. This is scaryly easy to drink.....15%!!! How!!Where!!!! The taste citrus is really blasting my face now. Beer is also developing a long lasting bitter finish. The sweetness is really starting to build up to massive levels...So very sweet. Three quarters done bottle still no sign of alcohol in the beer but my head is vibrating and "Just for Laughs Gags" is making me laugh. Coffee, mild dark chocolate, astringent is starting show up and medical hops. All Right Peter vs. the Chicken part 3 on family guy...EPIC!!! Back to the beer, been drinking it for close to two ours now, nothing bad to say, solid brew, how is this so drinkable? Vanilla, maybe it’s rum, not sure but has that flavour. Beer is worth the price tag."

Beer colour. Smells and tastes like hops and malts were added. Nice beer.

Update: ruby red highlights up to the light and a small bubbly cap on a rough pour. Sugar, brown sugar, mild to medium roasty things, sharp sour orange similar to when you leave orange juice in the fridge for about 2 weeks too long, molasses, toffee or something, mild spice and a bunch of other things I smell that I’m sworn to secrecy not to disclose. This is unbelievably easy to drink. Smooth and silky on every savoury sip while giving tons of flavours to create a salivation level similar to one second before a grizzly death on Alien or Aliens. Caramel, licorice, oozingly thick goo, molasses, succulent citrus that attacks in late evening sized lakeside waves, hints of chocolate somewhere, sweetness....simply mouth watering - happens repeatedly. Sticky mouth feel with that feeling like I just ate an entire chapstick - when you do that always go with cherry. The only hint of the alcohol is that I’ve had to go back and fix the 78,000 red squiggly lines in my review. Strong flavourful finish with a hint of heat and endless smoothness... my mouth feels just like petting a beautifully cute and soft kitten.. except with my mouth which is kind of creepy but those kittens never judge me afterwards.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 16, 2012
An interesting brew. A dark brown pour with a thick foamy tan head that dies to nothing. Massive alcohol leggings on the glass, but not lacing. The nose is sweet, hopped up and alcoholic. Notes of grapefruit, toffee, brown sugar and a mild roast. The taste is potent and quite strong with a nice hop and overly sweet. The 15% ABV is well hidden despite the strong taste. The body is full and slickly sweet. overall, a pretty good brew.

presario (4594) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle. Thick dark brown with no head. Quiet weird aroma. Vegetable paste and soy. Flavour is thick and makes me think it is more what Sam Adams might have intended for Triple Bock. Oatmeal, molasses and finishing soy. You can taste the alcohol but comes off light for 15%. Very thick. You can taste a lot of hops but a lot of malt to chew through and that growing alcohol presence.

Rando7 (730) - Iowa, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle pours black with a thick tan persistent head. Aroma dark fruits and molasses. Taste sweet with raisins and molasses, chocolate, a bit of vanilla and licorice. There is a little soy sauce, cough syrup and umami creeping in at times which detracts. Kind of an old ale feel at times. Palate thick and a little sticky. Alcohol quite apparent. Finish sweet, a little bitter.

This is a good beer but like you’d expect from a beer with 15 varieties of malts and 15 kinds of hops, is kind of busy and flavors end up competing instead of integrating.

bretupdegraff (242) - Fishers, Indiana, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Pours dark with a nice head. Aroma is fruity and malty. Taste is strong and full of intense flavors. Caramel,licorice, raisin, cherry. And just the right amount of each flavor. Very nice beer. Flavor really stays with it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
