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.

Zarkam (516) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2015
355ml bottle from Tallinn Kaubamaja, very dark reddish brown colour, medium frothy mostly vanishing tan head, fair lacing. Moderate to heavy toasty malts with notes of chocolate, bread and coffee with moderate citric and resiny hops. Taste is initally moderately sweet and slightly bitter with a hint of sourness and acidity turning into a moderately bitter and slightly sour finish with an astringent feel. Medium body, slick mouthfeel, average carbonation. Quite a pleasant brown ale with somewhat interesting taste and balanced sour-sweet-bitter taste.

spartakbarnsley (67) - St Petersburg, RUSSIA - JAN 8, 2015
On tap at Brooklyn Brewery. This is how I imagine Newcastle Brown Ale would have tasted in the days before mass brewing. Caramel and malt are the dominant notes as expected, but a hop spiciness is definitely present in the finish. Lots of character, and not your typical American beer. As a Brit on tour I enjoyed this!

Brewfoolery (28) - California, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle pour with ruby red on deep brown slight translucent appearance in the glass, with slight head or foam. Aroma has notes of malt and chocolate. Mouthfeel medium body. Crisp finish on slight coffee, toffee base, no sulfur note. Low hop bitterness with no conflict with malt flavors. Dry finish, clean carbonic aftertaste.

thirstyrabbit (1280) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle. The label has "strong beer" on it. Since when is 5.6% considered to be strong? By whom? Anyway, the beer pours a dark mahogany body with a medium beige head. Aroma has nutty roast with some cocoa. Taste has nutty roast with some minerals/iron unfolding in the finish. Nice roast. Finish has a firm hoppiness. Quite drinkable but occasionally feels somewhat industrial.

Kauge (483) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 16, 2014
355 ml bottle from Koht (€ 2.25). Dark brown colour, head light creamy and brief. Nose is sweetish raw herbal hops and caramel. Taste is sweet of chocolate and strawberries, burnt caramel, roasted malts and kind of sourish with mild bitterness from the raw hops. Body medium, carbonation quite prickly. Finish kind of metallic and dry. Not enjoying this.
