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.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 Truly remarkable that I had not gotten around to rating this beer before now for I have had this beer dozens of times over the years and it remains a favorite. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this fine brew pours a dark brown color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is sharp with floral hops. The flavor is full of dark malts with a hint of chocolate and solid flowery hops with a undertone of light fruity hops. There is a hoppy and faintly chocolaty finish. An American classic for such a widely available beer in my book.

Draft. Dark brown with tan head. Aroma of yeast and roasted malts. Nice flavor of coffee, chocolate, grains and sweet malts. Good carbonation. Hint of hops.

Bottle from the Offie, Leicester, kindly purchased for me by Lea Parsons and delivered to me at GBBF 05 - big thanks Lea!! Cola coloured, no head. Nutty sweet, coco/cereal aroma (weetos). Acidic, biting in the mouth. No real flavour, just some malty sweetness and aggressive carbonation. Average stuff - a little watery and lacking some oomph.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 5, 2005
Draught. Dark brown. Not much nose. Thin off white head. Flavors included sprucy hops, caramel, roasted coffee. Some hop bitterness. Not bad for a brown.

Very dark brown, great tan head, slightly smoky and chocolately although the sourness and bittering hop type doesn’t quite gel with the formula.

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 (4730) - 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.
