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.

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 (1958) - 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 (4528) - 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

tmoreau (3143) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Cellared, May 2010 bomber poured to snifters with a black/brown hue and just a slight edge of ruby highlighting, a light tan, bubbles & cream head, and spots & streaks of lacing clinging to the glass. The nose was crusts, roastiness, chocolate, caramel, a touch of dark fruit sweetness, treacle, and showed it’s age with the slightest hint of soy. Only medium bodied with decent malt, low hop bitterness, and light warmth, the flavor was smooth, but less expressive in presenting the former notes. The finale exhibited a pleasant dryness. Thanks Brad for sharing!

Opaque black beer. Good light brown head. The head is creamy with a little smoky malt. Soft palate - light and fluffy. Creamy dark malt. Whisper of roast. A little lactose sweetness. Soft finish has a little hop bitterness. Comes over as a sumptuous porter. Nice.

A friend of mine split this with me and to be honest, I was disappointed. It was just unremarkable and I have usually found Avery anniversary beers interesting. Dark black color obviously with a malty smell. The taste was like a dark lager but was just kind of boring. The beer was not hard to drink but for an $8 anniversary beer I would expect a little more.

Intense bitter and sweet aroma. Black color and thick foam. Thin and oily on the palate. Strong aftertaste of hops.

Pitch black pout with beige head. Roasty chocolate aroma along with some grassy hops. Slight bitter chocolate taste at the start then turns roasty. Nice dry finish where the hop taste lingers on your tongue. Really nice black lager. More mouthfeel than expected.
