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.

Deep brown with a tan head, good lacing as the head faded slowly. Very high carbonation. Odd scent with some hops. Much better then expected taste (I wasnít expecting much). Strong choclate with some coffee. Extremely easy drinking. If I could get this locally this would definately be a session beer for me, possibly a regular.

Aroma was a little lacking, but this beer made up for it in all the other categories. Small head that laced out nicely. Wonderful brown body that had a great consistancy. Slightly creamy taste that usually doesnt accompant a brown ale, but I liked it very much. The aftertaste and (albeit barbaric) taste from the belches were even wonderful!! Not quite as bitter as some other brown ales I have tried, but delicious none the less.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2006
Dark red brown with not much head. Faint chocolate and hop aroma. To be honest I didnít pick up much else apart from this in the taste. Perhaps a bit of sourness. Thin, cheerless, disappointing.

12 oz. bottle shared by jerc. Red brown colour with a mostly diminishing off-white head. caramel, toffee, light chocolate, and lightly fruity aroma. Caramel, bready and light chocolate flavours with a nutty finish. Light to medium bodied, smooth with a dry finish.

Bottle. Dark brown with a small tan head that fades. Sweet, malty aroma is quite nice. Brown sugar and molasses notes. Flavour is less impressive, malt sweetness with a tangy underlying distraction. Average to medium palate. Fairly quick finish. Interesting. Thanks to BeerMountie for the bottle.

Brooklyn Brown Ale pours to a bright, deep brown color with a creamy tan head, and a lively carbonation. The nose is packed with aromas of sweet malt, a touch of chocolate, some nutty notes, and zesty, cirtrus hop aromas. The palate is firm with good dark malt flavors of chestnut, chocolate, and touches of caramel malt sweetness. Some nice, fruity estery flavors are present as well. This beer finishes with a long, dry, zesty, cirtus hop bite that lingers on the tongue. Brooklyn Brown Ale is a fantastic beer with great character. You get a lots of good malt and hop flavors, and I really enjoy drinking this beer, and American brown ale as a style. This beer would match well with a number of dishes. I would match this with beef Wellington, or perhaps steak and kidney pie. It would make a great desert beer as well, try it with creme brulee. Garrett Oliver, the brewmaster at Brooklyn Brewery, pairs his brown ale with a good cigar. This beer is well worth seeking out, and one that you will want to continue to drink for years. A classic.

On tap at the Winking Lizard on Bethel. I havenít had this in a while, and I was pleasantly suprised with what I have forgotten. A nice malty flavor of caramel with an attack of hops on the back...maybe a little too much on the back. Itís body felt a bit thin, but only a bit. A very nice brown ale, but nothing extraordinary.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 Bottle. Pours a clear dark reddish brown with a moderate tan head. Sweet malty aroma, with hints of chocolate. Taste is dominated by roasty malt and a bit of chocolate or caramel, with some hops accentuated by above-average carbonation. Could do with a bit stronger flavor and less carbonation, but not bad.

"Poured a nice rich mahogany color. An medium head, some lacing. Had a coffee/ chocolate aroma and taste. Taste also has nice roasty malt flavor as well. Nice brown ale"
