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.

not much taste and from a bit of bitter and malts. Aggressively carbonated. Ok with food, medium mouthfeel with a spot of nuttiness.Skunky aroma, it may have travelled about but was always kept at good temperature, and before expiry date.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Clear red/brown pour with a very thin and fizzy tan head. Aroma is slightly sweet and malty with a nutty undertone and a slight hint of citrus I believe? The flavor is a nice nutty beginning with a sweet middle and a smooth malty and nutty finish with a warming hint of alcohol. Not a bad brown ale.

Sweet, malty brown ale. Very simple flavor; but fits the style very well. Slightly nutty flavor, but nothing that stands out.

A fun brown ale that delivers what a brown should and nothing more. Flavor has a hint of vanilla in it that adds to the nutty body. Good but not great.

Rich golden brown color, aroma of dried fruit sprinkled in just a little brown sugar and baked. Flavor remarkably more balanced than I would guess from the sweet aroma, self-possessed hop underpinnings to balance the nutty toffee flavor.

Unmistakable dark ale nose and a full, highly satisfying burnt ale taste -- this is a neat brew indeed. It’s so tasty and morish that I found the bottle far too small. I wish I had a double-up to follow this one up. Cheers again to Brooklyn!

Bottle. Very dark brown with a tan/brown head. Aroma is of sweet malt and a little hop. Taste is much the same, with a rich smooth malt taste giving way to floral hops in the finish. Very nice.

On draught at Anam Cara Feb 2005. Ruddy brown color, tans and mahogany tinges throughout, transluscent body and a small off-white head. Smells of brown sugar, caramel, raisins and light barley. Flavor is sweet, lightly sticky texture, with vanilla and an ever so slight amount of coffee. Medium-light body is my biggest complaint, but for a sweeter, dark malted session type ale, it’s quite good. Moderate carbonation, low hops profile.

Pours deep copper/red. Nice head and decent lace. Nose is complex of chocolate, almonds, caramel, bit of hop acidity, pine. Nice medium-full, creamy body. Tasty, rich and deep malts, caramel, chocolate on the the palate making it a moderatly sweet tasting beer.
