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 Shmaftz just isn’t there yet. So with 17 malts, 17 hops, and 17% abv,JEWBEL4TIONREBORNserves as another mark of our death as a contract brewer and proof of our conversion to a new life as brewery owner…… L’Chaim!!!

NeuroPliny (208) - Calgary, Alberta, - MAY 9, 2014
Poured from a 750 cc bottle shared with JB. Poured into a stem glass. Black with minimal quickly fading head. Aroma is raisin, fig, brown sugar, molasses, and roasted malts. Flavour is roasted malts, dark dried fruit, spice, and subtle hops. Perhaps a bit sickly sweet for my liking. Minimal carbonation. Medium to full body.

Rendu à cette étape de la soirée, je n’ai pas réalisé que ce monstre tirait un gros 17% d’alcool. Au nez et en bouche, beaucoup de malts épais et de fruits foncés. Ça sent le porto et ça goûte aussi la mélasse, le rôti et les fruits liquoreux. L’alcool arrive maintenant et me pince la langue. La finale assez chaude arrive à atténuer l’aspect lourd des malts. Pas mauvais. Quand même un drôle de choix de ma part.

Pours clear very dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of dark fruit, toffee, and booze. Raisin and fig flavors with toffee, molasses, and some booze. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation.

Bomber. Dark garnet with no head. Toffee, candi, and booze. Thick and strong. Hides the ABV well.

This beer is insane. Crazy strong with deep milk chocolate, coffee, and prune notes. Pours a rich dark brown with a short head.

Rodriguez (313) - Quito, ECUADOR - DEC 30, 2014
A lot of marketing for this beer. I couldn’t find 17 hops or 17 malts or even 17 degrees alcohol. It is not a bad beer, but it is not something special. A lot of figs and dark fruit aroma and flavor, alcohol is well hidden. It has a medium body, and it it is very sweet. It was complex, not.

Beardaxe (292) - - DEC 5, 2014
Poured from bomber into tulip. Pours black with little head. Heavy carbonation that needs to be toned down through aging. Flavor is complex and varied. The hops announce themselves, but never get out of hand. Same with the malts. there is a nice balance there. for being 17%, the alcohol masking is excellent. Easy drinking and smooth.

doublebock (520) - California, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Appearance: Jet black with tan head Aroma: Super malty with notes of port. Taste: Mutliple layers of flavors. Tons of sweetness upfront with toffee, mocha and star anise. Oaky whisky on the finish. Incredibly well masked alcohol level. Ten percent but 17% now way Overall: A must try treat I look forward to getting every year.

Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong booze, wood, dark fruit. Thin mouthfeel with strong booze, dark fruits, vanilla, wood.

Indra (2683) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 13, 2014
12oz. bottle. The 17% trainwreck beer that I’ve kept in the cellar for nearly a year and I come face to face... Aroma is comprised mainly of huge, dark, sweet malts, dried fruits and alcohol, with notes of molasses, black bread, slight roast, raisin, red grape, cherry, licorice, spicy, earthy hop, a faint hint of tartness as well as some light fusel -- yes, more alcohol just in case you somehow forgot it was a ridiculous 17%. Mostly black in color with some faint dark brown-red highlights, no head to speak of here, nor lacing, nor sediment, just clean and very dark. Flavor profile is every bit the trainwreck it was promised to be, with all kinds of things going on between sips, such as hugely sugary and dark malts, a slight tanginess throughout, earth, coffeeish roast, chocolate, black cherry, prune, tinges of red wine, hot, peppery alcohol, deep, lasting hop bitterness and some jammy fruit in the background, to name a few. Hot and lightly syrupy on the palate, thick and coating with a body that can only come from 17 different varieties of malt. Leaves the glass quite sticky. How far will they go, folks??

It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of rich caramel toffee with roasted malts and some cotton candy. The taste was of dark brown sugar, roasted malts, hops and a hint of earth. Very tasty.
