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.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2011 Has a nice dark appearance, very nutty with a roasted malt taste and hints of chocolate. A lot of flavor in this one and a fine brown ale.

BeerRenter76 (831) - Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Originally rated on 12/7/08. B.B. poured a deep mohogany body with a thin off white cap, not much lace left on my glass. Aromas of molasses, caramel malts, and a little chocolate. Flavors were similar to aromas, nice balance of bitterness and sweetness with a slight hop bite. Overall it was a pretty good beer.

Tap at Cottonwood - dark brown with mahogany edges, frothy light beige head, very laced. Aroma of coffee, mocha, roasted nuttiness. Smooth, somewhat creamy mouthfeel, sweet nuttiness, earthiness. Good take on the style.

HourGlass13 (609) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Pours up a dark brown mahogany color with a tan head. Aroma of caramel, hops, malt and light chocolate. Taste is on the hoppy side for a brown, but still has some malt to balance it out. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with average carbonation. Overall a decent Brown Ale, not the best, but still good.

lotsalaughs (161) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2016
Ruby pour with tan head that soon falls. Dark fruit/toast/cocoa aromas along with roasted nuts. Not much for hop aroma-maybe a hint of grass/citrus. Taste is mildly burnt sugar along with toasted malt. Slightly slick mouthfeel and enduring light bitterness in the finish. Quite nice.

Ordered this at Pinchos in Norrköping, the only beer available that seemed okay. It was fine, similar to Newcastle, nothing special.

Pours a brown reddish colour, with a medium off white head that leaves a good lace when fades. Aroma of chocolate, some coffee, dried fruits. Medium to light body, standard carbonation, palate is rich and very creamy. Taste of chocolate, dried fruits, notes of coffee. OK.
