COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
15 Years and the bombastic beers blossom bolder than ever. The shtick ages so beautifully as well – some favorites from the Shmaltz vault: FIGS: “And their eyes were opened, and they knew that they were naked; they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons.” -Genesis 3:7. POMEGRANATES: In Medieval images of a unicorn hunt, the captured beast bleeds from wounds of pomegranate seeds dripping blood red juices on his milk white body. Wild and uncontrollable by nature, unicorns could be tamed only by virgins. Once tamed, the unicorn was chained to a pomegranate tree. DATES: Song of Solomon 7:6: “How beautiful and delightful you are, my Love, with all your charms! Your stature is like a date palm tree, and your breasts like its clusters. I will climb the tree and take hold of its fruit stalks.” Psalm 92:12: “The righteous shall flourish like the Date palm.” Arab proverb: It is good to know the truth, but it is better to speak of palm trees. GRAPES: “Oh, when I was a kid in show business I was poor. I used to go to orgies to eat the grapes.” -Rodney Dangerfield. Genesis Chapter 15 promises many battles but also sacred covenants. Verse 15: “You, Abraham shall be gathered into the arms of your people and pass at a ripe old age.” To the torrents and the trials, the punchlines and the pleasures. To 15 Years of Shmaltz Life – and beyond – L’Chaim! Jeremy Cowan, proprietor

4.1
mcberko (17845) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2011
22 oz. bottle, split 4 ways, pours a dark brown with a reddish hue and a small, quickly-dissipating tan head. Aroma of pomegranate, dates, figs, grapes, treacle toffee, and subtle rye notes, though not heavily pronounced on the nose. Flavour is extremely rich and complex, with the above-mentioned dried fruits, brandy / sherry, booze--but well-integrated considering this is 13.4%, but the barrels are not really noticeable at all. Rich and complex, with a sticky, syrupy palate. A slow sipper -- this is extremely well-made.
