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!!!

Ron (3688) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2014
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.

BREWMUSKCLES (2579) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2014
vicious with nut and fresh malt. a bitter finish with big mellow taste of date and raisin. full mouthfeel to this deep caramel colored brew. little alcohol for the profile except for the expected dryness.

75 cl bottle. Pours thick brown to black, small tan head. Aroma is roasted malty, chocolate and liqourice. Dry malty, malty, alcohol and roasted. Breadish. Roasted. Dry. Sweet caramelish, bitter hoppy and dry malty. Bitter and dry finish.

Mudwhomper (52) - Madison, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Hugely boozy in the nose. Big flavors of chocate and coffee. Quite tasty - masks the 17% incredibly well

mcberko (14979) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark brown / amber with a small tan head. Aroma brings out burnt roasted malt, caramelized sugar, and who knows what else - smells very confused and uncoordinated. Flavour... not sure how to describe this - this is all over the place - notes of roasted malt, caramelized sugar, scorched hops, and even some feet / BO notes. This is very strange. Totally a gimmick beer at this stage in the anniversary series. It’s drinkable, and amazingly well-concealing of the ABV. Good stuff, but only drinkable in small quantities.

WheatKing (1329) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle from the holiday mix pack. This is the strongest beer I’ve drunk to date. Pours clear brown, beige head. Nose is toffee/molasses, some roast, slight alcohol, nondescript hops. Flavour is same, mainly toffee/treacle, lots of nuts, the booziness isn’t too bad really, I’ve had beers with a third the abv with more alcohol presence than this. Could be that you’re just expecting it here. Sticky. Yeah a nice sipper.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle at craft ale house. Pours deep red and brown with minimal head. The aroma is full of cherry and strawberry notes. The taste is big cherry and big booze.

Bottled, muddy brown pour with no head, lots of chocolate and maple syrup notes, chewy malt bodied, millionaires candy, good smooth finish

IrishBoy (4137) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Bomber from Imbibe Wine. Nose is sweet caramel, hints of chocolate and golden raisins, and some very light toffee. Very dark brown with a small cinnamon colored head. Flavor is lightly bitter, contrasting moderate sweetness (overload of malts), spicy, white pepper, and a finishing bitterness without being overwhelmed by alcohol (where’s the beef (alcohol)?) Huge new offering (their take on Tactical Nuclear Penguin?)

BurkeKevlar (5) - - FEB 17, 2014 does not count
Every year, I think that next year will be a huge mess. Every year, I am surprised. Less burn than you would expect at 17%. Delicious, dark flavors like burnt caramel, raisin, and plum. 17 hops? Where? There's no room in a malt bomb like this. Looking forward to whatever Legal Age brings!
