COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn Brown Ale, made exclusively with American ingredients, won Bronze medals at the Great American Beer Festival in the Strong Ale Category in 1991 and in the American Brown Ale Category in 1992. Brooklyn Brown uses pale, crystal, chocolate, and black malts to attain a complex creamy texture. It is more heavily hopped than its British forbears.

Bottle. A rich dark brown coloured beer with a nice white head. The aroma has malts, fudge and chocolate. The taste also has malty character together with some coffee and ample hops for a brown ale. A nice tasty beer.

Bottel. poured a dark brown, thus the name. Taste was a bit dry, nose was weak, some malts and a touch of yeast. Little head. OK.

jonsiii (165) - Fredericia, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2005
Bottle. Dark red/brown colour and yeasty aroma. Nice taste of roasted malts and some coffee notes. Average palette and aperance but try to forget that and taste and smell it instead. More of this...

presario (4705) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2005
Bottle. Rich creamy head. Dark mahogany beer. Aroma is slightly sour and yeasty with roasted malt notes beneath. Very assertive malt flavour. Almost porter-like. Corree and nuts, certainly some woody notes. A strong bitter finish reminiscent of the sourness in the aroma.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2005
Bottle @ Medelhavspärlan, Stockholm
Red/brown. Malty butterscotch aroma with a slight fruity background. Sweet and malty still with a buch of hoppiness in there. Chocolatey and a light sourness (as in Old Ale sourness). Biscuity aftertaste with a lot of bitterness.

grabbed a glass of this from the pub location in newark airport (and almost missed my flight as a result). smell was malty and chocolatey, coming off a dark brown, clear body with a big white head. flavors were mostly malts and sweet chocolate with some grassy hops coming in late. the aftertaste was much stronger in the hop department, the malts didnt linger much at all. it wouldnt have been worth missing my plane for, but it was still good.

Head dissipates quickly. Beatiful brown copper color. Malty not too hoppy. Wonderful find for $4!

A lucky find for me -- although it was in its last month of shelf life :-(. Initial appearance was great -- although the head disapated too quickly for me. Taste was a wonderful rich malty flavor. Nice hop presence, but subdued as a brown should be -- much better than Newcastle in my book, but under Sam Smith’s. A great brew -- perhaps I can get a fresh batch and retry. Cheers

Roasted coffe and carbonized tastenotes on a light body, some hop bitterness - burned caramel aftertaste - flowery notes retronasal.
