22oz bottle 6/19/14 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-50° in Snifter-Pours dark brown with a nice sized tan head. Aroma of dried fruits, malt, toffee, chocolate, and caramel. Taste of caramel, malt, dried fruit, and sweetness. This full bodied brew has a lot going on but it is well balanced and goes down smooth. I still don’t know how Shmaltz hides the ABV so well. This beer ROCKS

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
$9 bomber may just be the best price per alcohol volume in all of beer(said with absolutely zero thought behind the statement) 17% by my damn self. Poured cold as dark brown and nice creamy tan head. Smell initially cold is big dark booze soaked fruits, rich caramel, biscuit, cocoa. Taste is somewhat harsh cold with thick booze and considerable hop punch but overwhelmed by the alcohol soaked dark fruits, heavy caramel, licorice. As it warms all flavors and booze all are enhanced. Like it but 22 ozs solo is going to be tough.
