Bottle - aroma is chocolatey and quite hoppy. Quite unexpected for a brown ale. A very nice, deep brown body that shows purple through light - I love that. A creamy beige head sits atop. Chocolate is at the front of the flavor. The hops make a surprisingly dry finish. A very nice example of a style that is not one of my favorites. I could drink a few of these, though, with no complaints.

Bottle. Decent aroma but good look with decent head that stays. Good flavor that has a nice malty aftertaste and body to it. Very smooth for the style.

Pours a very nice chocolate brown, with a coffeen latte-colored head that seemed to die in a hurry. Looks beautiful in the glass. Then the hops aroma hits. The hops, for me, absolutely overwhelmed any other aroma and flavor in this. No subtlety, complexity, nothing. Just hops up front, hops at the back, and hops in the middle. Good mouthfeel, nice texture though, so if super-hops is your thing...

mansquito (5592) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2006
This is exactly what I envision a brown ale should taste like. It is thick, creamy and malty. The ale is nice and hoppy and pours a nice happy brown color. So far, this is my favourite of the Brooklyn beers that I have tried.

Poured a dark, ruby red brew. The head was medium, tan, and frothy. The aroma was light, spicy, and sweet. The taste was sweet, with hints of molasses. The palate was thin and crisp. The finish was slightly hoppy.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Draft, this is an excellent brown. Aroma choclate and a bit roasty, with a hint of hop bitterness. Full flavors of chocolate, coffee, yet still within the typical flavor profile of a good brown ale, not a porter at all. Shockingly hoppy finish for a brown, some nice pine notes and distinct bitterness, maybe a hint of grapefruit. Really a very nice brown.
