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 wayFred Tomaselli, Roxy Paine, Joe Amhrein and Elizabeth Crawfordhave 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.

drjay44 (3615) - Salida, Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2013
750 ml. corked and caged bottle. 9% ABV per the label. Pours a thick gradually collapsing ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a clear, dark amber (SRM 15) body.....nose is light dried fruits, including raisin and plum, hints of brown sugar and cola, minimal hops....taste is hint of sweetness to start, then light dried fruit tones, finishing dry with moderate bitterness....mouth feel light of medium, slight alcohol warmth, carbonation low with a light acidity. This is different from many Doppelbocks. It is somewhat drier than most, and has more bitterness than many. The malt backbone, while present is not as complex nor a dominant as it could be. It was, naturally, a technically well made beer. BJCP 7/3/13/4/7

Welley_Alves (261) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 7, 2013
Ótima doppelbock em edição comemorativa da Brooklyn. Cor vermelho-cobre, ótima formação de espuma, com aroma de malte intenso. Na boca, álcool presente, com amargor intenso, balanceado pelo dulçor de muito malte presente na breja. Final longo, com sensação de aquecimento. Ótima breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Koelschtrinker (19394) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 21, 2013
Fruchtiger, hell malziger Antrunk. Mit der Zeit hopfiger und insgesamt intensiver werdend. Leichte Karamellnoten, wenig alkoholisch, was ins Gesamtbild passt. Hopfiger Ausklang. 12/11/12/11/9/12

Sawbones79 (19) - - NOV 17, 2013
Slightly cloudy with a small, persistent head. Nondescript aroma, sharp and somewhat overcarbonated palate. Taste is surprisingly thin and has neither the sweetness of a bock, nor the aromatic hops of a pale ale. Overpriced and disappointing considering Brooklyns track record.
