HeBrew Jewbelation 12 ~ Schmaltz Brewing

Appearance: dark brown and dark blacks. Little head with little to nothing lingering after pouring. Swirls with nothing.

Nose: brown sugar glazed pitted dark fruits with stones – figs and dates. Graham crackers. Black root, black licorice root. Meaty, fudgy, chocolaty cakey goodness. Rich but not complex. Earthen.

Palate: chocolate breads and chocolate cakes. Earth underneath. Hint of heat and spice in the back, earth and twigs and dirt too. Ginger and cumin powder. Immediate warmth lingers long in the back of throat, eeking into the chest. Graham cracker in the middle. Leathery and woody. Fudge dense with fresh prunes and dates. Best at room temperature. Burnt brown sugars atop middle tongue. Peanuts create a craving for peanut butter. Cumin.

Final Thoughts: at first I wasn’t expecting much because the nose certainly didn’t lead me to believe there was going to be much in the palate. I was wrong. An intriguing duopoly of simplicity, complexity, and richness. Delicious, and still makes me crave a peanut butter sandwich.
