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.

Copenhagen 2/4 2015. 33 cl bottle from Føtex. Pours clear reddish brown with off-white head. Settling in thin layer. Aroma of caramel and roasted malts. Soft carbonation. Taste follows the nose but supplemented by a bitter twist and a slightly weird burnt aftertaste. By all means a fine brown ale.

Cerveja de cor acobreada escura, bastante vistosa. A espuma é fina e pouco presente. O aroma é bastante convidativo, com toque amadeirado e silvestre; além disso já se percebe que se trata de uma cerveja rústica, remetendo também ao odor de estábulo. No sabor, o amargor é bastante destacado, mas não prejudicada a drinkability. O aftertaste é agradável e refrescante, com amargor concentrado no momento em que a cerveja é tomada. O toque Silvestre que vem do aroma se mantém presente e é uma cerveja extremamente refrescante. O corpo é leve e acredito que cai bem com alimentos leves e de sabor fraco. É pouco complexa.

ordybill (483) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a point glass. Aroma- Has a nice nut aroma with a well balanced malt mix. Appearance- This a very dark brown colored beer with a small off-white head. Taste- A big nut bomb flavor with a great malt blend. Has a great flavor that grew on me after each sip. Palate- A medium bodied beer with mild carbonation. Overall- This is a good beer, starting to build a lot of respect for Brooklyn Brewery.

Old rating. Bottle from old town. Pours a dark brown with a modest tan head. Aromas of malt, chocolate, molasses and pine. Tastes more of the same with the molasses standing out as it comes to room temperature. Slightly sweet with a bitter finish. Full-bodied. Nice brown.
