COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
THE 19TH ANNIVERSARY GIFT IS BRONZE. Not exactly silver or gold, but at least it’s on the medal stand! And the Bronze Age was a giant leap forward from the Stone Age - the invention of writing, metal alloys, and year-round agriculture. Evolution! 19 letters spell "He’brew The Chosen Beer". The Hebrew lunar calendar syncs with the solar cycle every 19 years. In 1919, Congress passed the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote. Yeay! Congress also passed the Volstead Act which led to Prohibition. Boo! The Vietnam War lasted 19.5 years. The anti-war synth hit "19" reached #1 in the UK (’85). August 19 is the UN’s World Humanitarian Day. Though I really hate the song, I got my 1 st girlfriend in 5th grade because of "Hey 19" by Steely Dan. Rush’s "Tom Sawyer" (which I still love) was named the 19th greatest hard rock song by VH1. At age 19, Lenny Bruce got an honorable discharge from the Navy for posing as a transvestite, Barbra Streisand debuted on Broadway, and Rodney Dangerfield first changed his name to Jack Roy, performing in the Catskills, near our new brewery. Groucho Marx, who once danced the Charleston on the crushed remains of Hitler’s bunker, died the 19th of August (’77). His quip, "Humor is reason gone mad," inspired the unofficial slogan of the Bronze Age, "He who smelt it, dealt it." L’Chaim to the power of 19!

ABUSEDGOAT (2852) - California, USA - JUL 27, 2017
Brown colored with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate, dark sugar, caramel, grapefruit, alcohol, light roast, somewhat fruity. Medium to full body, a lot of flavors, malt dominated, not really that exciting despite all that’s going on. It’s like hosting a party with top notch food and drink with a dorky crowd.

benpickens (537) - Camarillo, California, USA - JUL 2, 2017
Pours an inky brown with a big coffee colored head that leaves ample lacing; atrong aromas of brown sugar, port, fruitcake and tobacco; creamy and heavy mouthfeel with sweet palate with a bitter edge.

gyllenbock (9855) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2017
Bottle from Best Damn Beer Shop, San Diego. Almost black with a firm head. Sweet with malt, dried fruit, toffee, bread and some light hops. The body was full and the finish long. Not a bad one but sweet and heavy.

thornecb (6062) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Pours deep mahogany into a snifter. Mocha head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Raisin, plum and molasses aromas. Thick with molasses and clove upfront turning to dark caramel covered dried fruit and chocolate before the lasting, warming bitter root finish.

3.5
mansquito (6911) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 18, 2016
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is toffee, dark fruit, light booze, sugar. Taste is fairly bitter. Kind of sweet. Lingering aftertaste. Kind of thick body. Pretty good. Not as heavy as it seems it should be.

3.1
ClarkVV (6873) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Bottle shared by Chris on 10/15/16.
Deep amber-auburn body is clear and topped by a thin, beige head.
Strong spiciness in the nose suggest there are still some hop acids floating around in here. Light citrus, pine and such balance the strong caramel-toffee maltiness. Lots of fruity esters, rye-like spiciness and fruitiness and actually somewhat reserved on the alcohol for its size.
Tastes like a barleywine. Yay. Clobbered with malt, bitterness and light alcohol, with lots of sugars lingering, big fruity notes from the nose and light caramel and vanilla notes lingering. You’d think these guys would have got sick of making these beers by now. Who do they think they are, Southern Tier?

3.5
