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

Bricks (675) - Delaware, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Pours as dark as night with a decent slight caramel colored head. Smells like a stout, malts, chocolate. Mouthfeel is super smooth with no hint of alcohol. Tastes of malt, vanilla, some fruityness. Outstanding.

dmac (4438) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2011
22 oz of the pound for pound champ, $5.25 for 15%....WHAT?!?!?!?!?! Poured a solid black/brown with a very small super tight foamy light beige head. Aroma is sweet and hot, notes of sherry, bourbon, vanilla, dates, dark fruits. Body isn’t so much full as it’s just thick and super syrupy with softer carbonation and only a touch of heat. Flavor of syrup, figs, dates, touch of nutts, wood, under cooked chocolate and molasses. Man this is the bargain beer of 2011 and I’m guessing 2012.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Not surprisingly a whole lot going on with this beer; very complex, malty, heavy alcohol, and required me to power through it. Might smooth with age, but felt a tad overbearing to me. Might be better paired with food rather than by itself.

HonkeyBra (3624) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Dark near black pour with a small off white head. I can’t think of anything more untenable than He’Brew’s abv matching the anniversary year series. What are they going to do in their 20th anniversary? Their 30th? I digress. Aroma is bold, vinuous, lots of grapes and prunes. Pregnant like a woman spilling over her bra. Flavor is extremely sweet. Mollasses, honey, prune juice, alcohol. Cheap milk chocolate, pure sugar, that weird fake chocolate milk stuff at the grocery store. So sticky sweet I had to check to make sure this beer wasn’t from The Bruery. Big, thick mouthfeel. Way too sweet. I needed something to cut the sweetness. My cat knocked over the bottle and I wasn’t even mad.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2011
22oz bottle from grape & gourmet. pours a syrupy, dark mahogany capped by a thin, creamy beige head that leaves tight rings of oily lace. aroma is great with rich, sticky, brown sugar, maple syrup, candied malts, and butterscotch pudding backed by sweet raisins, figs, and subtle notes of boozy brandy. flavor is delicious, albeit a bit sweet, with notes of fresh baked fruitcake, sweet raisins, fig newtons, and rich toffee backed by light roast, candied walnuts, cinnamon, and a hint of dark chocolate. palate is full bodied, sticky on the palate, and lightly carbonated with a touch of boozy warmth layered with the sweet, mildly roasted finish. overall, a damn nice american strong.

badlizard (5535) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 27, 2011
On tap at Urge. Black with a creamy light brown head. Faint chocolate caramel and alcohol aroma. Floral fruity candy chocolate sugar and alcohol taste with a thick syrupy palate.

reebtogi (4520) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2011
650ml bottle poured reddish black into glass with 3 fingers of light tan head that left some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark roasted malts and hops with some dark fruits. Taste is a big malty sweetness balanced with a bold hoppy bitterness. Heavy in body and moderate carbonation. Has a great complexity about it and leaves a pleasing feeling on the palate. The best Jewbelation to date.

phaleslu (7107) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2011
22 oz bottle from Randall’s. Pours a deep, dark, cloudy chestnut brown with a minimal tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of booze, figs, brown sugar, molasses, chocolate, toffee, and faint roast. Flavor of lots of sweet caramel and chocolate malts, toffee, toasted brown sugar, dark fruits, and booze. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a sweet, boozy mouthfeel. Good. This brewery has stepped up its game.
