4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Clear amber colour with nice big, light brown, creamy head that stays ’till the end. Strong hoppy aroma, rather typical for IPA beers. It looks like mixing grapefruit with chocolate, nuts and caramel. Taste is sweet at first and than turns into a moderate bitter aftertaste with long finish duration.

Rather bland brown ale, had it from the fridge, maybe it would give more flavour at room temperature?

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from sampler pack during Office Space anniversary party. Fudge brown color. No real aroma. Taste has some chocolate notes with roasted malt coming through. A little too much bitterness at the end and kind of thin. Not one of my favorites.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours ruby brown with a nice size tan head. Aroma is of toffee, caramel, leather, and plums. Tastes of toffee, caramel, brown bread, roasted malts, and nuts. Has too much of a light body that is smooth and maybe a little watery. The body kind of ruined it for me.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Beetje dubben waar deze Brooklyn naar toe gaat. Smaak is waterig en blijft niet lang hangen, toch is er duidelijk chocolade, gebrande suikers en licht kruid te ontdekken. Aroma is ook wat vluchtig, maar ook hier kruidige tonen en zoetigheid. Kraag blijft redelijk op, gedronken met hamburger.

Bottle. Dark ruby with little head. Dominated by chocolate, roasted malt and a lot of dark fruit sweetness. Not as balanced as I expected but ok.

Quite complex, a Brown Ale for the ages! Good luck finding a better looking example of the style, this Brooklyn beast is the acme of brownishness with a pulchritudinous light brown head. The smell and the flavour are interwoven inimitably, roast malts, sweet brown sugar, molasses, cigars and nuts. Some bright tart cherry and fruitcake sweetness make the rounds as well. A wonderfully substantial but easy to drink body and mid carbonation round out this beauty’s glory.
