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.

Poured from the 12oz bottle into a globe glass. Dark cola brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and chocolate with mild sweetness. Flavor is similar with mild roast, some nuttiness, chocolate, and a mildly bitter finish. Medium bodied. Nothing particularly special but good and very drinkable.

Pours dark brown with beige head which does not last long. Caramel, citrus, toffee, nuts in aroma. Taste is light, a bit acid, fruity and followed by coffee, sweet and bitter, some roasted bread. Carbo is a bit too high in the beginning but leaves quickly. Nice brownie.

Uma cerveja interessante. Tanto no aroma quanto em seu sabor apresenta um mistura de estilos entre porter e IPA. Cor escura com espuma bege.

JorgeLee (1761) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle in the new burger shop Kensington High Street, served by Igor the Mute. Decent brown colour, white bubbles. Quite a dry and bitter brown ale, hoppy, ashy, burnt toast. Slightly thin. Not bad.

An impressive composition of malts gives a surprisingly balanced stuff. Hops is detectable and it matches together. B@H

Brooklyn Brown Ale is pretty solid in the style. Dark brown but still translucent pour with a decent head. Aroma is chocolate malts. Taste is a nice balance of malt with chocolate and a hint of coffee notes. Brooklyn Brown is solid in it style.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a light brown color with a nice beige head and decent lacing. The aroma is nutty, caramel, and hops. The taste is nutty, toffee sweetness, some roastiness, and some hoppy bitterness. The carbonation is above average. This is balanced well and different than most beers of the style.
