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.

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Poured into a lager glass from a 650ml bottled bottled in May of 2010.

A: Almost opaque garnet with a moderately sized dense and creamy messy tan head that clings to the glass as it shrinks.

S: Sweet chocolate and roasted malts, this is well past the hop point unfortunately. Still it smells good.

T: Right away I’m hit with a sweet chocolate that blends well with the roasted malts ending very sweet with a caramel finish. This is like the bastard child of an imperial stout and a barleywine at this point.

M: Syrupy body with almost no carbonation.

O: Shame this isn’t fresh but with it being a one-time brew I had to try it. It’s still worth trying, just don’t expect any hop presence at all.

22 ounce bottle. Just found in back of beer cellar. Pours almost black with a lovely tan head. Aroma of hops, dark chocolate, and malt. Taste is roast, chocolate, dark fruit, yeast, and some spices. Rice and creamy. Unique, different, and very good.

Marsiblursi (3045) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2012
(Bottle) Pours black with creamy, nougat to pale brown coloured head. The aroma is a mix of roasted malt/chocolate, alcohol and spicy/grassy/light floral hops. Some plums in the background. Nice grainy maltiness on the nose. The flavour is light sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic. Tones of dark chocolate and resinous/spicy hops as well as a light touch of dark fruits. The mouthfeel is round, creamy and clean. Smooth malt finish. Nice bitter sting at the end. Medium bodied.

The way Avery meshed in the hops is amazing on this beer; very well balanced and clean to the taste.

stefannilssons (1519) - SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2011
Den här ölen uppfattade jag som något söt med en påträngande maltighet som samtidigt är ganska så mild. Jag ansåg mig även hitta någon ton av lakrits men det kan tas med en nypa salt då undertecknad var berusad vid inmundigandet.

BadAprilia1000 (348) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 17, 2011
This beer pours a perfectly dark color with a fantastic pillowy head that sustains itself throughout the drinking time. Aroma is great, notes of chocolate, roasted malts, and hops all mixed together. Taste is awesome with a great lager mouthfeel. Notes are of roasted chocolate, some sweet maltiness, a slight bitterness from hops although there also seems to be some due to the chocolate as well, and they all mix together in a perfectly drinkable blend of awesomeness. This beer is very similar to Stone’s Black IPA, but much more drinkable and slightly less aggressive.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle:   Black in color, deep cola hues on the edges, large frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Floral and hops on the nose, slight burnt/charred malts.   Smooth maltiness on the tongue, slight peat and charred wood, a little floral with some hop and bright grassiness on the backside.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   This is an interesting brew, somewhat of a Pale, a little bit of a Schwarzbier, and some aspects of an Imperial Pilsner.   Surprised to see this is nearly 9%.   Seems like a Black Pale Ale.   Smooth, flavorful, and very clean.   Well balanced.   Good stuff!
