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.

Reviewed from notes. Consumed January 20, 2012. The appearance has a rich mahogany colored body with a slightly dark copper/caramel looking head that doesn’t last more than three seconds. There is some light lacing. The smell is malty and yeasty with some nuts involved and some light chocolate coming in at the end. The taste has some nuts and yeastiness with an added light roasted graininess. The palate is somewhat medium, comes across fairly sessionable, has a dry aftertaste, and a bitter finish. Overall, this is just a tad above decent, but a bit too yeasty for a brown ale, unsure if Ill come back to this.

Poured from bottle. Molasses and brown sugar in aroma. Mahogany colored with a bit of tan head. Tasting nut, cola, molasses, caramel, toasted malt and a bit of hops. Dry feel with a good amount of carbonation. A decent drink for winter.

Mørk brun, skum ender hurtigt som en tynd film. Aroma: chokolade, malt, ristet. Smag: klar, frisk bitterhed, antydning af kaffe. Medium fylde, god bitterhed i lidt ubalanceret eftersmag.

Boa representante do estilo American Brown Ale. Cerveja de cor marrom escura, creme de boa formação, de cor bege-amarronzada, bem encorpada e aromática, com muito caramelo, toffee, chocolate e café, em conjunto com os mesmos sabores no malte. Seus lúpulos remetem ervas e argila molhada. Na boca, cremosa e com um final seco. Ótima drinkability.

chinchill (1367) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 28, 2014
12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Very dark brown body is briefly covered by a thin head than soon reduces to a ring and island. Fine aroma featuring sweet and medium roasted grains is not quite matched by the flavor. Mild hop aroma with faint hop flavor. O: a fine brown ale

Bottle into pint glass, deep ruby brown with tan head. Aroma of grassy/earthy hops, chocolate, caramel and a light nuttiness. Taste adds some breadiness, faint coffee and the slightest bit of smoke. Light body, low-moderate carbonation, smooth, dry, bitter with light toasty finish. Hoppier then average brown ale, pretty good.
