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.

Pours a medium brown with ruby hints to it, medium white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is doughy, chocolate, some nuttiness showing through, and a very minimal hop note towards the end. Flavor is mainly chocolate, some caramel, mildly hoppy finish. Fairly thin in the mouth, feels smooth due to light carbonation.

Again.... Way too much chocolate. I was very disappointed with this Brown Ale, no complexity to speak of.

Mahogany with a fairly tall offwhite head. Nice malt aroma. Characterized by a coffee flavor with a slight hoppy bitterness occasionally popping through.

Draft. It's been so long since I've had this one and probably need to try it again in order to rate it fairly. Much nuttier than I remember with a bit less hop character. Has a lot of class, and rather reminds me of Boyne River--not the hoppier, richer brown ale I remember from years ago.

Nut brown color, off white head. Sweet aroma with a touch of fruit and roast. Sweet with a slight bitter twang. Good brown ale.

Ungstrup (29988) - 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 (3806) - 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.

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.
