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.

Thanks to Sandco for this one. I’ve never been a big fan of brown ales...just a bit too sweet for me, but this one was pretty tasty. Not too sweet, nice nutty hops.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Deep burgundy in color with a wispy white head. The head lasts throughout. Doughy aroma, somewhat grassy with herbal and piney hops accompanied by a lovely chocolate and caramal malt backbone. This is a very solid brown ale. Sort of robust for the style and quite hoppy. The hops are herbal. The malts are fruity, chocolatey and carmelly. Good Brown Ale. I could pound a few.

Pours amber/brown with almost no head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Initial taste is hoppy and alcohol. As the beer warmed up it got much better. Sweeter and less harsh. Drink this beer cool, not cold. Good stuff.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2004
Well made brown ale. Brown colored, slightly opaque, moderate tan head. Aroma is nutty, sweet, with a bit of carmel. Flavor is sweet and nutty, with a little hops bitterness. Sweet up front on the finish with the hops out lasting the malt on the tail end. Good Beer

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 draft -- a creamy chocolate brown with lots of lacing. nicely roasted malts and latte aromas. soft on the palate, with a lasting chocolate finish. smooth and rich, quite good. for a brown ale, it has many characteristics of a milk stout. not sure how it would hold up in the bottle. note added 7/14/05: bottle is a bit more bitter and ale-like, and less creamy.

joergen (20742) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2004
Brown colour with a small white head. Aroma of berries, malt and a bit coffee. Taste of spices, berries, malt and coffee, with a slight bitter aftertaste. Nice brown ale.

Hansen (6602) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2004
Nice brown colour. Medium head. Real good aroma, citrus, ceraels, soft. Flavor more ordinary, malt and a little bitterness.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Bottle pours a deep ruby color, small beige creamy head, with spotty lacing.   Butterscotch and bready on the nose.   Sweet malts, slightly candyish, and bready in the flavor.   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with a quick burnt sugar type sweetness, but it fades into a minor sourness.   Not bad, but nothing exceptional in my book.

Clear-ish dark brown. Light brown finger of foam. Sweet, roasty, lightly smokey(?) aroma of caramel, chocolate, licorice, & nuts. Medium feel. Nicely balanced, roasted malt flavour.

A very sweet, malty brown ale. Very "sniffable" brew: nice chocolate and spice aroma. Flavor had notes of chocolate, caramel, nuts, and some light citric hoppienss. Very enjoyable if you’re a "maltophile."
