Shmaltz He'brew Jewbelation 11
The next beer in the Shmaltz He'brew Jewbelation series was Jewbelation 11. The beer pours a black color with a frothy tan head that sticks around for a while. The aroma consists of a faint chocolate with some carbonation on the nose. The taste is not quite as sweet as the previous beers in the series but has some hot chocolate like flavor with an underlying of toasted malts and a nice alcohol bite. The alcohol content is 11% ABV, which matches the anniversary number. I really like the Jewbelation series, but I feel that the Jewbelation 11 did not live up to the standards of the others. While it was smooth with plenty of chocolate flavors, it missed some balance with alcohol and hops.
