He'Brew "Funky Jewbelation"
Shmaltz Brewing Company - Brooklyn, New York USA
American Strong Ale (ABV 9.8%)

[Suggested Glassware: Snifter]


Rating: 3.5/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a murky dark brown almost black with a large (2-3 finger) light brown rocky head that reduced to a thick film with a medium collar and had excellent sheeting of lacing.

The aroma was of a roasted chocolate malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of coffee, chocolate, toffee, dark fruit (Raisons and plums), oak cask and a touch of vanilla.

The taste was rather malty and extremely sweet with hints of chocolate and toffee from the onset with the finish having notes of coffee, a big dark fruit sweetness and a lightly noticeable alcohol presence at the end. The flavor remained on the taste buds for a nice long while with a sweet fruity espresso taste left to linger.

Mouthfeel was a few shades past medium in body and oily in texture with a nice soft carbonation.

Overall a very well put together brew, although I found it to be just a tad to much on the sweet side...
