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.

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.

From bottle at Stavanger Airport Sola 09.03.15. Very dark brown. Pale brown head. Aroma of dark malt, dark caramel and chocolate. Taste of dark malt and coffe, with a slight hint of pine and refreshing citrus. Perhaps just the tiniest hint of smoke throughout.

malvrich (86) - durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2015
A: Clear mahogany/prune juice color with a short tan head. Short duration. Spotty lace. S: Chocolate malt and Dr Pepper. T: Less chocolaty and more hop bitterness than the nose would imply. Less Dr. Pepper and more Coke. Nice Roast flavor. Refreshing taste but a bit thin. Actually could use a little sweetness. M: Tingly carbonation and light body for the style. Easy drinking though with just a bit of residual stickiness. O: Good, refreshing and tasty but a bit lacking in flavor complexity. Overall I can name several browns I like at least as much for the same price. Worth a try but don’t overthink it.

rarbring (1777) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2015
Aroma: The smell is sweet, brown sugar, fudge, nut caramel, some fruity aromas, red forest fruits.
Appearance: The beer is clear brown red, a tan head that settles rather quickly but leaves some lacing.
Taste: The taste starts with a brown sugar note, some nut fudge, then lingonberries and cherry seeds.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, small intense bubbles, the fluid is fresh and smooth but has a lingering dryness at the end.
Overall: Quite well balanced, and not too sweet - thats nice. Enjoyed at Grills in Stockholm.
Note: Bottle Reviewed 2011-02-16.
