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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours amber, slightly brownish tinted with a healthy white head. Super slight haze. Nose shows rich caramel, surprising fruit notes (roasted peach, toffee, sweet plum). A bit more hops than expected. Not what I would have thought of for a doppelbock, but in a good way. Unique, and much better than expected. Rad label, too.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2016
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with crisp-bread, toffee, honey, dried fruit, grapefruit and a touch of white pepper. Malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of rye bread, treacle-toffee, caramel, honey, grapefruit, orange peel and a balanced spicy, citric bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and well balanced bock, with a fresh citric touch. Nice one.

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.

jjgmd (1996) - 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 (743) - 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 (4251) - 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.
