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: OCT 20, 2007 a brown ale for ipa fans. it’s hoppier than your run of the mill brown ale, and really drinkable, especially on tap. its a fairly different animal on tap - i get the feeling its a little maltier when bottled, could be me though. i’ve actually come across this beer in bars more often in D.C. than in new york.

Pours chestnut brown with a one finer tan head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of baked bread, lightly roasted malts, coco, rains, nuts, and caramel sweet malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma with the addition of some light hop bitterness. Has a medium body with a pretty creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, slightly dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, well balanced brown ale that is pretty drinkable for the style.

mauroruellas (217) - GETULINA, BRAZIL - JUN 25, 2015
Linda coloração escura avermelhada,espuma inicial abundante mas que não se mantem,média carbonatação,aroma inicial o tostado domina mas a medida que a cerveja esquenta aparece o floral do lúpulo,álcool já notado,no sabor malte tostado e lúpulo bem harmônicos ,álcool em excesso prejudica um pouco o conjunto,final seco e levemente amargo,retrogosto igualmente seco e duradouro.Dentro do estilo uma cerveja certinha.

Not many notes of what I have outside of a brown ale with an aroma of bread and malt with a hoppy finish. A "nice roast end" as well. I listed that I liked it, it was a hoppier brown ale, quite good.

TH28 (234) - - JUN 13, 2015
12oz bottle. Appearance: Dark ruby red, clear, with a nice khaki brown head that lingers. Aroma: Fresh baked bread crust, toffee, and chocolate. Hop aroma not noticeable. Taste: Malt sweetness upfront, with toasted bread crust, caramel, and slight touch of raisin. Finishes with a roasty note on the swallow and moderate hop bitterness. Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Finish: Lingering roasted malt and dry, sticky finish. Overall: Beautiful looking beer with an outstanding, complex malt profile. Hop presence is there, but the balance is definitely toward the rich, toasted maltiness

Negra opaca. Color coca cola a la luz. Medio dedo de espuma. Aroma a malta tostada, miel y café. Ligera de cuerpo y carbonatación notable. Agradable sabor, con predominio de cafe y chocolate, mezclado también con lupulos florales.

huineman (395) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 26, 2015
Pours dark brown with ruby shades. Tan head. Very high aroma: cherry, honey, cola, milk chocolate. Fizzy, powerful even though it’s not very high on alcohol contents. Starts a little sweet; ends not very bitter. Interesting.

12 oz bottle. Translucent brown pour with a reddish hue. Negligible white head. Aroma is malt and cut grass and a bit of nut and coffee. Dark toffee malts, sour cherries, just a touch of bitterness. Pretty smooth but filmy.

One of the tastiest brown ales I have tried, this beer helped turn me on to brown ales.
