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.

cervmagpt (393) - PORTUGAL - MAY 19, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 19C). Bottle 35.5 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: roasted malt aroma with notes of caramel and some dark chocolate. initial low hop aroma that starts to fade with a pine-like character and remains with a fresh note, balanced with the malt. APPEARANCE: ruby color body and clear. average light tanned head with average retention. TASTE: moderate sweet malty flavour with initial cocoa note, finishing with an almost dry coffe flavour. low bitterness and very low to no hop flavours discernible. PALATE: medium-low body with average carbonation. OVERALL: a nice american brown ale that lacks a bit more hop presence.

5/3/15 (Bottle) - Chocolate, malt and nut scent, thin dark pour with minimal head. Sweet beer, good for desert or after a meal. Coffee, toffee and barley taste, decent kick going down than expected after tasting the sweet ingredients tasted. Overall good beer.

Bawelt (50) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAY 9, 2015
Bière qui titre entre 5 et 6° mais qui dénote un certain caractère. Au nez, belle senteur caramel qui tire vers les fruits rouges. En bouche, fort arôme de café qui glisse ensuite vers le cacao tandis que des notes fruitées (pruneau) sucrent le tout.

Quite nice brew. Lovely roasted background, dark choco, caramel, nuts, light vanilla, nice hop kick gives some fruitiness, bit perfumy. Moderate sweet with moderate bitterness. Nice well balanced brew.

Pours deep bronze amber from 12 oz with thin white head. Robust aroma of molasses, chocolate, rum/liqueur, nuts, and hint of banana. Fleeting sweetness followed by bubblegum and smooth bitter aftertaste. More than average carbonation with medium body. Beautiful aroma, average taste, good beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
