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.

Dark brown-red colour with small brownish head. Fresh nutty aromas with caramel and toffee tones. Taste is sweet at first, then transforms into a slight bitterness with nutty feel.

Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Red brown, with a disappearing tan head. Fruity aroma, citrus hops with plum and port. Sweet malty flavour with some chocolate and coffee, and plenty of hop flavour and bitterness. Gave me a rather Belgian impression.

bhensonb (11066) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Aroma is not typical. It’s smooth roasted caramel with grassy or floral hop. Very dark garnet color with a smeary white film for head. Full bodied with mild and creamy carbonation. Flavor is roasted caramel with floral sort of hop. It’s a bit darkly bready, but not overly sweet. Sort of an overachieving Newcastle Brown. Character it’s got. The finish is much as the beginning. This ale is arguably in a class by itself.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2009
Rich aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Deep, dark brown color with a slightly beige head. Taste was sweet, with strong caramel notes and echoes of the aforementioned malts and chocolate. Quite delicious.
