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!!!

Pours a dark black with a medium off-white head. Aroma is malts, malts and a hint of coffee followed by booze and more booze. Taste is a hint of hops followed by roasted coffee and a hit of malts. There is an intense booze aftertaste that lingers. Palate is malt and very boozy. It definitely changes for the better as it warms. This is definitely good and unique but I’m wondering where the tipping point is. Still nothing compares to he Jewbelation Fifteen. It was a more perfect balance. Still love this series though.

Aroma is dark malts, dubbel characteristics and earth/coffee. The flavor is caramel, dark malts, dark fruit/grapes, slight nuttiness and a slightly sour/alcoholic finish.

Bottle. Almost black with a brown head. Aroma is mostly roasted malts, dark chocolate and alcohol. Flavor is more complex with a variety of malt and hop subtleties. Full bodied(malty) with a slightly boozy finish. Not as boozy as you would think for 17%. I really enjoyed this one.

reebtogi (5071) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2015
650ml bottle pour a dark brown color with a finger and a half of light beige head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and roasted grains with some pine and and dark fruits. Taste is a dark fruit and chocolate malty sweetness with a roasted grain and light pine hop bitterness. Alcohol is noticeable, but subdued. This is a well done brew that is nicely balanced and quite flavorful. Highly recommended.

25 nov 2013, tap. Black. Nose is toasted coconut, bran muffins. Med/thin body and fizzy. Alcohol is pretty noticeable, leather, burnt toast, meaty. Not sweet considering it is 17%. Pretty tasty! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brown with a thick creamy head. Alcohol very present in the first sip, thought this might ruin it, but no. Vanilla notes, harsh finish. I would drink again, but not often. Another great Schmaltz brew.
