12 oz bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits. Pours a clear reddish dark brown and small light tan head. Aroma is toffee, fruit and nuts. Flavour is toffee, light chocolate, mellow dark fruit and gentle nuttiness. Carbonation on the mellow side. Solid.

The beer pours out of the bottle in a unclear dark brown colour, creamy low head and medium body. Nose of malt and torf. Taste of dull unfresh hops, strong malt, very bitter chocolate, woods and dark caramel. Hints of roast and smoke. Not that easy and smooth to drink but okay altogether.

A nice one with an interesting bitter finish and loads of hops in the nose. Some chocolate, some yeast and some nuts also. This one proves how aromatic and full bodied a beer with "just" 5,6 abv can be. Nice one.

I’m not big on traditional (English) brown ales but this tastes lighter, sharper and hoppier. The sweet chocolate, coffee, vanilla malts are delicious.

Draft at the Hilton (of all places) in Altamonte Springs, FL. Pilsner glass (come on it was a hotel bar.) Pours a dark brown with medium off-white head. Good lacing. Nice aroma of roasted malts, cocoa, and leather. Taste is similar with nice balanced malts, light hops, cocoa and roasted nuttiness. Medium body, satisfying finish with roasted malts. Little greasy. Overall probably my favorite thus far from Brooklyn.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
355ml bottle. Pours deep dark brown colour with medium beige head. The aroma is roasted malts, brown sugar and some licorice (soft). Regarding the flavour, some chocolate notes are present along with sweet malts and a touch of coffee (subtle). The mouthfeel is so creamy, carbonation just perfect. No alcohol at all. Very good beer overall, would be nice to pair it with chocolate desserts.

Again this is what you want from a brown ale and Brooklyn have nailed it! Smooth clean and those caramal nutty notes you’d expect from a brown ale! Sold 3 kegs the first night it was tapped at the Winston ale house in north Hobart Tasmania, first time tapped in tassie and spoke for itself! Keep it up Brooklyn!

This one poured a murky medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was grassy and green hops, medium roast, nuts, light chocolate too. flavor was impressive, really complex for a brown ale, lots of toast, caramel, brown sugar, light chocolate, and earthy hops in the finish. Nice.
