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.

Bottle. Dark ruby with little head. Dominated by chocolate, roasted malt and a lot of dark fruit sweetness. Not as balanced as I expected but ok.

BrewGoblin (463) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
Quite complex, a Brown Ale for the ages! Good luck finding a better looking example of the style, this Brooklyn beast is the acme of brownishness with a pulchritudinous light brown head. The smell and the flavour are interwoven inimitably, roast malts, sweet brown sugar, molasses, cigars and nuts. Some bright tart cherry and fruitcake sweetness make the rounds as well. A wonderfully substantial but easy to drink body and mid carbonation round out this beauty’s glory.

Não é o estilo que mais gosto, pois não sou fã quando tem sabor de algo torrado. Muito cheirosa. O sabor tem notas de café torrado. Paguei R$ 9,49 no pão de açúcar. Vale tomar uma vez ou outra, não sempre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at Northgate Tasting. This is a bit sweet and malty, but it’s good for the style.

eduardovl (949) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 0.33l bottle poured in a chalice A: Nice clean and dark brown color with a creamy beige head (1 to 2 fingers) dissipates quickly leaving not much lacings but a very nice floral smell of hops S: Toasted malts, roasted nuts, sweet caramel and a lovely floral of hops in the end (which I personally think is very characteristic on Brooklyns) T/M: Again, roasted malts and nuts, sweet caramel which makes it a bit molasses. Very good presence of grassy hops which gives it a moderate bitter end. Medium body and carbonation D: High. Refreshing beer. Good quality beer as expected from a Brooklyn [ BA Review @ 6/3/2010 ]

theisti (3296) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 10, 2014
12 oz bottle purchased as a single at the Whole Foods in Coral Springs, Florida. The pour is a light haze brown golden with a smallish light tan head. The aroma is fresh nut, faint roast and a floral character. The taste is a nice blend of the nut, roast and floral. The palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation and a clean mineral finish. Nice.

OmegaX (1283) - Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle from the local ABC. Nose is full or many things: roasted nuts, toast, toasted grains, some light chocolate, and caramel. Cool! Flavor is more caramel and light roast. Good stuff.
