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.

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Poured deep clear chestnut with an average foamy-rocky diminishing tan head. Nutty/chocolate sweetish roast malt in the aroma accompanied by a surprising amount of juicy citrus west coast hops - maybe the most appealing brown I’ve ever sniffed, if not exactly true form. Taste is pretty much the same, sweet grapefruit competing with caramel and grape tartness - the sweet and bitter seem to fight it out all the way to a medium-long smooth finish. Mouthfeel is both astringent and lightly syrupy, moderately lively - this is an oddball but I really liked it - this brewery makes some top-notch easy drinking brews. I’ll have this again.

The aroma is of roasted and chocolate malts. The color is mahogony with a tan head and nice lacing. At first the flavor is bitter but quickly gives way to a caramel and chocolate. There is a bit of a roasted nut finish on the palate.

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Bottle. Sweet hop chocolate aroma, pungent. A little "Bud"dy in the good way... rich mahogany brown with head film. Taste is a little funky, cheese, mushrooms, seems off. weirdly malty, woody (pine plank).

Gachupines (1143) - USA - FEB 3, 2006
Brown with thin, lingering head. Taste is malt with a slight hop bite. Flavor of mild chocolate and caramel. Smooth, yet interesting, this is a nice take on the style. This would make a nice session beer.

gilvanblight (819) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2006
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 wasn’t 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 didn’t pick up much else apart from this in the taste. Perhaps a bit of sourness. Thin, cheerless, disappointing.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2006
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.
