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.

Lubiere (9866) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2004
TAP-Brown ale, with a faint malty aroma. Very nice nuts in the mouth with caramalized malts, slightly acidic, medium bodied.

Beaver (1282) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2004
UPDATED: APR 22, 2004 The Brooklyn Brown poured ruby-brown with a big, fluffy, light brown head that showed excellent retention.

The aroma was nutty chocolate with a slight fruity hop note.

It was medium bodied (a little on the thin side) with nice carbonation. The taste was a surprisingly big fig flavor initially with lots of chocolate and nuttiness. It had a crisp, very subtle bitter, and slight metallic finish.

Overall, a nice, drinakable brown ale. It reminded me of a cross between a New Belgium Abbey and a porter. Thanks to Probiere for the trade!

Very nice aroma. Has a great coffee/chocalate flavor. A bit bitter aftertaste, but very enjoyable nonetheless.

Reddish Brown. Not much body, a little thin. Too bitter for a brown. Flavors a bit complex for such a thin beer. Not well-balanced.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 13, 2004
Dark clear copper color with medium sized head. Smells like a hopped up red. Tastes nutty with a bit of smoke. Bitter hoppy finish.

duke33 (68) - Eldersburg, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2004
Nice reddish-brown color with a white head that dissipates almost as quickly as it is poured. Very nutty taste with a sweet aftertaste. One of the better brown ales around.

sloth (2464) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - APR 1, 2004
Medium sized light brown head, good retention and lace. Pretty brown/red hued ale. Nice chocolatey, spicey hop nose. Medium body. Chocolate, mild roastines and good hop flavor. Well balanced, full flavored brown ale. Medium dry finish. Been awhile since i had this. A well made brown ale.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2004
Reddish brown body with a diminishing white head. Strong caramel in the aroma with only hints of chocolate and coffee. Relatively light body with some creaminess, but is certainly not full. Sweet malt body with light hops only to balance. Fairly good, but not exciting. A different breed than something like GI Hex Nut.

eraserhd10 (226) - new haven, Connecticut, USA - MAR 20, 2004
A nutty smooth roasty aroma and taste. Another fine entry by the boys at brooklyn brewery. Creamy hints of chocolate. Strong coffee. Sweet, sweet finish.
