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.

750 ml corked and caged bottle. Clear copper initially with some sediment haze later. Rich booze barrelled lager malt aroma and taste, vanilla and caramel, slightly bitter spicy floral herbal hop, hint of citrus. Softer than average carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped.

VDuquerroux (338) - Airvault, FRANCE - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle, 75cL. Home. A brown opaque beer with orange hues. Big white beige head ; good retention. Great label ! Fruity aroma (blackberry), smoke, herbs, flowers, ashes, heather. Nice story :) First medium sugary sweet, then medium dry bitter refreshing. Bitterness is getting more powerful through the tasting. Medium body, medium texture. Good carbonation. Windy. Refreshing. Sweet finish with a lasting dry herbal touch. Overall, a fantastic aroma firework : 1 aroma leads to another one amplified by this dry bitterness. Delicious.

SirLimpsalot (2321) - SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2014
@ Gyllenbock 14-10-11: lite diskret doft men en trevlig lite halv fruktig halvt torr smak. Ingen större maltighet eller sötma men heller en lite fruktig och het eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Cunningham (4782) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2014
Deep nutty color with a fine off white head. Good looking. Fruity, malty and herbal aroma. Quite inviting. Tad sweet, but with an ok balance. Bready, malty, fruity and some spices in the flavor. Solid evening sipper.
[Bottle at Grosvold beer party 2014]
