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.

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.

(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 (3215) - 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.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2006
[Tap @ Sunset Grill 4/8/06] Looks great, smells kind of sweet and malty. Tastes great- complex malts, kind of woody tasting, but with just enough sweetness. Finishes with a nice light hop aroma. Excellent.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 5, 2006
Pours a reddish brown amber with an average off white bubbly head that left some lacing. Aroma of caramel, a light woodyness, coffee, chocolate and some nuts. Flavor was a mix of the same. Some roastiness going on as well. Hops there but subtle. Not a favorite style of mine, but this was well done.
