Shmaltz Brewing He'brew Jewbelation 9 (5766)
As part of the Shmaltz Brewing He'brew Jewbelation collection, I continued to celebrate Hanukkah by drinking the Jewbelation 9 (5766). The beer pours a really deep brown color with a bubbly tan head. The aroma consists of chocolate, raisin, and molasses. The taste is big on malts and chocolate, specifically dark dry chocolate, with a nice smooth molasses and coffee finish. The after taste allows the light hop accent to hit with the alcohol bite. The alcohol content is 9.0% ABV. One percent up in the alcohol content and one percent better for this version of the Jewbelation. This beer is surprisingly smooth despite the alcohol content and has a great chocolate flavor.
