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!!!

I love this series and this one is no exception as a reborn version. Sticky sweet with malases and figs. The taste is rather bold. Chewy malts and dark espresso. Alcohol is right up front. Great.

Level 42 Bottleshare. Thanks to Leighton. Clear deep brown beer, a few pale tan bubbles for a head. Palate is comparatively light and semi dry, reasonable fine carbonation. Sweet and spice laden dark malts, alcohol spice. Some dark chocolate. Savoury sweet dark fruits. Light dry finish. Entertaining but lacks the complexity of some of the earlier anniversary beers and from a 17% monster you want a little more. Still good though.

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2016
November 2016 - Bottle share at Canary Wharf. Many thanks to Leighton for this very solidly, if perhaps ’politically incorrectly’, named beer! As ’He-brew Jewbelation Reborn’, 17%. Opaque black with a foamy tan head, leaving dotted lacing. Aroma is chocolate syrup, soil, ash. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is black pepper and booze, ash and earth, dusty, quite sugary. Doesn’t drink like it’s 17%. Interesting to try but I wouldn’t want much. (3.0)

Bottle care of Leighton, at level. It pours pretty opaque black with a medium tan head. The aroma is rich, filthy, liquorice, treacle, vanilla, cake chocolate, dark fruits, Horlicks and frangelico. The taste is rich, filthy, roasted malt, toasty, coffee, malt loaf, toasted nut, some boost, wood, earthy and spice with a warm, boosty finish. Full body and moderately, foamy carbonation. Not so much depth to . Not bad.

Bottle shared in London - picked up in NYC. Been aging this a few years. Pours deep amber-brown with creamy, beige nose holds well toasted malts, dried fruits, some earth, raisins, cherry. Medium to heavy sweet flavour with lots of ripe berries, a little cola, fruitcake, toasted caramel, light earthy bitterness. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with plenty of toasted sugars, more berries, toffee, some scorched earth. Not a ton of depth, but it drinks pretty good for its strength.
