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.

bottle. Pours a rich, deep brown with a full lasting head. There’s a sweet yeasty aroma with some hops. The flavor is fairly robust for a brown with a good spicy character and a small chocolate roast. Quite a tasty brown, indeed.

Sigmund (5569) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2005
355 ml bottle, bought in Denmark. Deep brown colour, large light tan head. Pleasant aroma of dark and dried fruits and caramel, hints of chocolate, tobacco, oak and leather. Nice malty and nutty flavour with some caramel but not too sweet, well balanced with sufficient hops, hints of spices. Easy drinking, refreshing, decent mouthfeel. Moreish.

Brownish color with notes of red and a small tan head. Malt, caramel, and roasted nut aroma. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Flavors of caramel, chocolate, nuts, and malt. Followed by a gentle hop finish. Easy drinking.

Pretty good, though a bit strong for the style (not a problem in my opinion). Good color and good balance of flavors.

12 fl oz. brown bottle. A ruby brown beer with a small tan head. Dark malt aroma laced with slightly floral hops. Malt accented flavour profile, touches of caramel, soft chocolate note. Hops and some roasted malt rounds out the finish, a pleasing light bitterenss. Gentle carbonation, quite a bit of body. Solid all around.

RichardGretton (4379) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2005
Bottled. Dark brown beer with a constant strongish head. The aroma is dry, roasted and chocolate, and the flavour is quite mild, slightly milky, dry but overall smooth. Quite a nice beer.

thedm (5028) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 31, 2005
This bottled brew marked best before 6/05 poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized light tan colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing and a carbonated transparent dark caramel red brown colored body. The aroma was malty and doughy with mild brown malty notes. The mouth feel was initially tingly and lingered in the finish with a very nice brown beer caramel malt flavor. Very yummy with even a mild chocolate note in its background.
