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!!!

22 oz. bottle. Deep dark brown. Aroma is chocolate, brown sugar, caramel and cherries.

Body is medium yet sticky, syrupy sweet. Holy Christ this is sweet. Flavor is booze soaked raisins, stupid crazy, sugar. 17 malts is maybe to much?? Cloying....

AdamChandler (4846) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - APR 11, 2015
dark black, some brown edges. no head on the pour straight from the bomber. Aroma is boozy, chocolate, fudge, tobacco, maple syrup. Very dense bubbles, thick, syrupy. There’s a ton of flavor here. really hard to describe each flavor here. Syrup, sweet, chocolate, maple. intense

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.

smith4498 (3582) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2015
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.

Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2015
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 (357) - 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 (293) - - 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 (558) - 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.
