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.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Poured a clear medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma had a nice caramel malt presence upfront. There was a mix of toffee notes, candied sugar and a slight hint of citrus hops. Flavor had mostly sweet flavors. Caramel malts were great there was a nice added sweetness from the candied sugar flavors. There was just enough bite from the hops and alcohol to keep this beer from being cloying. Carbonation seemed a little high. There was a little bit of nice sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

Ughsmash (7503) - 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 (652) - 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 (4018) - 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 (418) - 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 (3078) - 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.

slowrunner77 (9217) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 8, 2015
glad I got to sample this, cause there was no way I was ever going to pay asking price on a bottle, especially when I can Celebrator for a small fraction of the price. Nice n bready aroma and flavor. Deep malt profile with a hint of spice. Body is medium to full, a tad over carbonated, but that’s easy enough to fix.

Bottle shared at RBScSG in Gothenburg. Pours hazy burnt yellow with a small frothy offwhite head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating.Smell is malty and herbal with caramel, bread, dark honey, black tea, hay, minerals and lemon peal. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, malty and herbal. Mouthfeel is soft, round, tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and slightly bitter with caramel, sweet bread, honey, tea, minerals and lemon peal. Solid but nothing you’ll remember for long...

tfontana (501) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 19, 2015
Keg pour at NH Brewfest. Appearance is orange-brown without sparkle, decent off-white head with nice lacing. Aroma is sweet bready malts. Taste is moderately sweet maltiness, same as nose. Palate is medium bodied with slightly slippery texture and soft to average carbonation. Overall, this is good but not a heck of a lot of balance to it.
