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.

Veeve (312) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2006 out of the bottle pours a beautiful cherry wood hue, but unfortunately is not complimented by as nice a head. a fizzy bubbly cream-tan head that is minimal to none. first impressions are that it tasted WEAK and that I expected more. Sour cherries, plum and butternut. Has a viscous, greasy palate and texture that is uncomfortable and gross. Aftertaste is like a dirty, yucky nut.

Christian (12337) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Red brown, with a disappearing tan head. Fruity aroma, citrus hops with plum and port. Sweet malty flavour with some chocolate and coffee, and plenty of hop flavour and bitterness. Gave me a rather Belgian impression.

omhper (22635) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Cask conditioned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear dark brown. Evident roasty malt aroma. Medium sweet with rounded mouthfeel and firm malt character. Itís dominated by the roasty malt, but there are hints of licorice and perfumy hops as well. Medium bitterness.

In all fairness to the fine folk at Brooklyn Brewery; this bottle was designated to be best enjoyed on or before 11/05. I would love to try a fresh sample, but Iíve got to work with what Iíve got. Splendid nose of dried fruit and flowers; however, it drops off quickly as the brew breathes. The brew pours a clear garnet. The frothy bone head is mostly diminishing with fair lace. It is the LOUDEST head Iíve ever encountered, sounding like a bowl of rice crispies. Iím not making that up. This brew is very well balanced if not terribly complex, and would make a very noble session offering. The light fizzy body is very dry.

suture (6) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2006 does not count
(DíAgostinoís, NYC) Smooth beer. Slight wooden flavor with a coffee aftertaste. If it werenít for the coffee, Iíd really like it.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2006
a sim rate: (bottled from DíAgostinoís NYC) Lovely piney, wooden aroma. Chocolate and cinnamon in there too. Flavour is full with licquorice, coffee and a hint of dark chocolate. Itís got a citrus kick right at the end and a fantastic full aftertaste. I loved it.

Beerdedone (3156) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
On draft at Just Sports with Stegosaurus. This beer poured dark, and had a decent aroma, good head, the taste was good, i thought it was a little watery, but it is a good beer.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - APR 21, 2006
Pours dark brown with barely any head. Aroma of molasses, chocolate, and slight nuttiness. Not as strong as I would prefer, but this has a nice roasty flavor that complements the aforementioned malts. Nice floral hoppiness in the finish. Extremely drinkable.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2006
somewhat odd for a brown, yet somewhat appetizing...aroma and flavor are of roasted notes, with definite pale characteristics (including strong floral hops)...alcohol present...decent palate

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2006
Fine creamy head, medium to start turning into a thin but heavy coating that left stickly lace all over the glass. Kind of a sweet chocolate like aroma that is balanced by some roast. One of the better browns I have had with a lot of complexity. Caramel and roast malt flavour, finish gently bittering hops. Well done, flavourful and complex.
