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.

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

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2011 Re-rate from Bottle: Roasted Chicoree, caramel and herbal hop aroma. Chestnut coulour, brown ring. Wellbalanced between roasted caramel sweetness, chocolate notes and grassy, herbal, light earthy hops. Quite chewy, sparkly mouthfeel. Earthy roasted aftertaste, dark caramel stays a bit longer. Original rating: Bottle 6 4 7 2 13 Red-brown, low creamy brown head. Spicy caramel and pine aroma. Roasted coffe and carbonized tastenotes on a light body, some hop bitterness - burned caramel aftertaste - flowery notes retronasal.

NosirIwont (2006) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2005
Bottle. Pours copper-brown with an off-white head. Quite the aroma: Hoppy at first, but quickly gives way for chocolate and coffee. Only inches from perfection; should have been a bit more powerful. Flavour is sweetish and nutty with hops and alcohol. Notes of coffee in the finish. Also slightly metallic notes in the finish. Palate is soft, albeit a bit watery.

Draft - Very nice deep brown color with a nutty aroma. This beer had a slightly creamy, very nutty flavor. Mild hop aroma and flavor. Very nice.

Out of a bottle, aroma an interesting dark roast slight hop profile. Poured a cold coffee color, very thin white head. Taste was good, light coffee combined with a decent hops which keeps it pretty even. Palate okay a little watery. Overall a decent ale.

Nice color, good presence, pretty good beer. Nice and hoppy, but still balanced well.

UnsofistaCat (238) - Garden City, Michigan, USA - JUN 14, 2005
Very dark amber color. Nice sweet floral nose. Hoppy compared to English brown ales. This is no New Castle. Flavor a little thin and a little less malty then I expected. Just a tad more sour then I expected as well. On the back end, I picked up some classic brown ale sweetness. Not sure its hopped exactly right for my liking. Not bad though.

Bottle. Pours a brown color with beige head. Carbonation is clearly active even before sampling. Nice carmel and nutty aroma and flavors, and some more subdued, possibly English, hops. A bit too much carbonation in the mouth with the bottle I had. Good brown ale, and Im guessing with the right pour draft, the mouthfeel would be a lot better for me.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2005
Couleur brune marron, grosse mousse beige pale. Noisettes brunes grillées, poudre de cacao, mousse de tourbe. Les aromes donnent aussi une vague impression de sel. Levuré et monotone, noisettes et encore des noisettes, le côté grillé (faiblement brûlé), ressort plus vers la fin et nous rappelle une touche de fumée. Texture farineuse, corps plutôt mince, finale sèche. J’avoue ne pas avoir beaucoup d’intérêt pour le style. Échantillon, mondial de la bière, Juin 2005.
