COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
After years of commemorating our anniversary with deliciously wild and weird ales, we decided to mix it up a bit and create our first Anniversary Lager. SEVENTEEN is a celebration and case study of the aromas and flavors of German hops. And knowing our fetish for those beautiful green cones, you can be confident that the contents of this bottle are excessively hopped for your olfactory pleasure. Many thanks to all and we hope you enjoy our lupulin dissertation. Peace to all and follow your dreams! Brewed with Rocky Mountain water, malted barley, imported German hops, and German yeast.

nice beer. unique hop profile. not like a black ipa...it’s own animal. pours nearly black, aromatic hops and roasted malt, but has a distinctly different aroma and flavor. fruity, and just a little bitter and dry."

DiarmaidBHK (3466) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle from Bruisn ales. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Has a bit of malt on the nose and the descendants of hop note. Alcohol wears fairly heavy on the tongue. Some maltiness on the tongue with a hint of bitterness on the finish. Pretty good after 4 years.

rumproasts (2951) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 1, 2014
bottle. Deep brown, near black with one finger head. It might be past prime, but this just seems bland. Hops are light and dull. Malt doesn’t seem very roasty. Average at best.

This is a very rich, very complex bock. Dark brown appearance, little head. Aromas of dark fruits, licorice, and a touch of vinegar. Delicious taste, some burned brown sugar and grape juice. Tried at the Choice City Deli in 2013.

shigadeyo (3026) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2013

6/23/2010: Avery 17 Dry-Hopped Black Ale... Aroma: Hoppy with cocoa and hints of coffee. Appearance: Near black, opaque; dense, lasting tan-colored head; fine lacing. Flavor: Chocolate, lightly roasted malts; coffee flavor and accompanying bitterness in the finish; dry hopping is evident, but not overpowering; good balance overall. Palate: Medium-bodied; smooth; good mouthfeel. Overall: Good offering; seems stronger than 6.9% ABV, but still really good regardless!

Sample from 22 fl. oz. bottle (6.9% ABV) at Marty’s Hops and Vines in North College Hill (Cincinnati, Ohio). Rating #354 for this beer.

rarbring (1428) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2012
Aroma: The smell is mostly herbal, grass, pine, but a bit dusty.
Appearance: This beer is dark, very dark, brown, clear and with a high, slowly settling, head. Lots of lacing!
Taste: Tasting first sweet, dark brown bread, some dried fruits, herbal notes of grass, pine, some anisette.
Palate: Medium to low carbonation, smooth and thick, a dry finish.
Overall: A very different lager indeed. Not bad at all, but could have been a stout.
Note: Bottle. Reviewed 2010-10-08.

PhillyCraft (3322) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Not usually my style but the ratings were solid so I decided to grab a bottle from total wine in Cherry Hill. Pours a deep ruby brown color with medium head and a very sticky lacing. Aromas and taste of barley malt, chocolate, rye bread, lemons, asian soy, and oats. A little boozey but nothing too crazy. Good
