COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Brooklyn Brewery is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. We are fortunate to be a part of the incredible cultural renaissance Brooklyn has enjoyed during the last quarter century. Four great Brooklyn artists whom we met along the way—Fred Tomaselli, Roxy Paine, Joe Amhrein and Elizabeth Crawford—have created special labels for our Silver Anniversary Lager beer. We are saluting our beginnings with a special doppelbock version of the Brooklyn Lager we introduced in 1988. This beer is re-fermented in the bottle and will taste great today or years from now. The original was inspired by the beers of 19th Century New York and Vienna.

NYE bottle share at Proof. Pours a perfect light amber brown. Really good amount of cream colored head. Head and collar last really well. Aroma is biscuity, caramel and some floral hops. Taste is wonderfully the same. Well balanced and delicious. Great medium body and carbonation.

*Fresh and intense brew. Fruity, herbal, sticky with lots of malt and caramel. Nice drinkable, slightly caramelly, round and smooth beer!

TEJA (2369) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2016
Big and lasting light beige haed. Solid golden color that is litle opaque. Clean lager aroma with some nobel hops in the background. Bitter and clean taste.

zgaier (1889) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Bomber. Pours a hazy Amber orange with a beige head and toffee, malty aroma. Taste is of bread notes with toffee, dried fruits, caramel, malt, and spices into the finish

jjgmd (1981) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Pours a dark rusty copper color with a beige head. Nose is caramel and toffee, and sweet. Taste is grainy with light hops, rather bland with no real flavors standing out . Boring ! Quaff Score 6 /10

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2016
750mL bottle. Poured deeper orange with a well-retained off-white head. The aroma picked up swestern biscuits malts, caramel, berries, and a hefty dose of oxidation.. smelled a bit old. The flavor found similar, with bread you malt support anduring berries + oxidation around.. dry on the finish with muddled malts and dusty notes. Medium-bodied and fairly well carbonated.. creamy middle.. too much broken-down stuff to be great.

Tognetta (702) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 9, 2016
Âmbar escuro, parcialmente turva, espuma alaranjada de boa formação e persistência. Aroma bastante maltado, caramelado, amadeirado, maple syrup, lúpulo presente, álcool perceptível. Paladar trás um leve amadeirado, dulçor médio e baixo amargor. Corpo médio e baixa carbonatação. Aftertaste de malte intenso, mas de média persistência, novamente amadeirada e adocicado, álcool fica mais perceptível com o aumento da temperatura. Muito boa !

rodenbach99 (4174) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2016
Bouteille de 750ml bouchon de liège. Une robe ambrée avec une mousse épaisse et collante beige. Un premier nez de sucre d’orge avec des houblons anglais. Une touche fruitée. À la limite barley wine. Une bouche très marquée par l’alcool. Des saveurs de caramel et de sucre d’orge, pas de malt distinctif des doppelbock. Les vapeurs remontent à la gorge pour brûler. Une touche de poussière est distingable en arrière-goût. Je ne suis pas convaincu.

Bawelt (514) - Lyon, FRANCE - JAN 25, 2016
Nez très Barley Wine ! On y trouve beaucoup de caramel, des pommes/poires confites, un brin de vanille, de la levure. Nez vraiment agréable. La bouche revient largement sur une lager : assez aqueuse, un petit peu de caramel en attaque sur un (léger) fond de vanille, un faux air de cidre, un peu d’alcool qui déséquilibre le tout.

hackobock (3427) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2015
December 26, 2015. Bottle.
Light hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is earthy, herbal, malty, dusty, some yeast and vegetal notes. Taste is medium sweet, soft bitter. Finish is light to medium sweet, very soft bitter and grassy, herbal and some vegetal notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, rounded mouthfeel.
Unfortunately it has a disturbing earthy vegetal character, not a fan.
