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.

Ungstrup (29281) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2003
A dark brown, almost too dark to look thru, beer with a nice light brown head. The aroma is very sweet - like most Brooklyn brews. The flavor is acidic, sweet at first, but then the chocolate, smoke, dryness, and woodiness hits you - great flavor. OK palate - great at first and end - but a little weak in the middle.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Nice malt aroma and balanced hops. A little musty/wet canvas odor. Bit of chocolate and tangy coffee sweet. Foamy off-white lacing head atop muted brown-red, slightly hazy liquid. Light-medium carb and light-medium watery body. Taste is light bitter with astringency. Malts are sweet and have OK nuttiness. Not well balanced, and not that good a brown ale. Maybe I got a bad bottle.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Roasty nose, looks dark brown and has decent head. Tastes roasty too, low on hops, high on sweetness. Strong chocolate overtones. Excellent.

ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2003
Dark reddish brown pour. Choclatey malt flavor with a bit of hops bitterness. A decent everyday beer.

Nice chocolate malt flavor, I can minimally taste the hops. I was asked to add this sentence so the rating could be posted.

Good smooth bold brown ale. Best chilled but not cold. Nutty undertone slightly detectable from time to time.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2003
A baby Westmalle dubbel? More Belgian sour than British malty. Dark reddish brown with small head rapidly fading to lace. Nose of chocolate, floral hops. Taste of chocolate and espresso, only lightly malty, with a strong bitter / sour finish. Mouth a little thin, and nicely spritzy. Low enough alcohol to drink as a session beer.

xmandax (130) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 7, 2003
deep brown color with a fluffy long lasting ecru-colored head. nice full body. well-balanced, and i like the hop on it, although the malt is a little too subtle. could use a bit heavier flavor.

fuchebu (146) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2003
This is one of my early craft beer favorites. It has been eclipsed but it still rings true when I turn back to it. It's well balanced but not as malty as most brown ales.

Rib Eye (147) - USA - JAN 27, 2003
A flavorful beer, though a bit too thick for my tastes. Nicely balanced though, yet still a bit hoppy for this malt lover.
