A great hoppy nose, brown sugar start, and a cool, refreshing palate, but the finish is a little too moldy. Trendy, maybe, like Blue Moon, but really not all that. The Emperor still has some clothes on with this one, though. One of those beers you can drink with cake or pie. Heine enthusiasts might not like this one; Guiness lovers might enjoy it with their bacon and eggs, Erin Go Braghe! gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Dark mohogony with medium head. Light but still very flavorfull. Just not my type of flavor. chocolate and nutty overpowers the hops. TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2007
Understated aroma, roastiness, toffee. Caramel flavour, some roast and bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - MAR 7, 2007

On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings in Robinson. A ho hum brown ale that does not break any new ground.The taste is all sweet malt with little to no hoppiness. A nice break from the norm, but this is Craft Beer 101 19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2007
A little spicy and thin. Rich and very strangely flavorful. OK, nothing else to say. Kind of plain. cheap (6132) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2007

Many thanks to 3 Sons and dogs in Wexford tonight for providing the 2 and 3 oz free samples of Brooklyn’s various beers. I’m not sure if 3 ounces of beer is really enough to provide a rating, I like to chug 12 oz bottles. Anyway, here it goes. This Brooklyn brown ale was the best of the Brooklyn beers I’ve tasted to date. The pour is dark brown but not utmost. There is an alabaster head that rapidly fades to a slender coating after a few moments. The aroma seems to just about the same as many other Brooklyn beers but with more virago. With the initial taste I immediately sense some roastyness in there. Is this coming on like a mild stout or porter? Interesting but, yet, not overpowering. This is meliority for Brooklyn. The finish is not in you face, but it does let you know that it is a dark beer with that final malty bite and linger. Decent entry from New York. I like this, the aureate, out of all the Brooklyns I’ve tasted including chocolate stout and monster ale. This may be as good as wild goose or troegs rugged trail. As far as Brooklyn goes, East India pale ale is the next best thing in their lineup.
Bottle: Brown in color with a khaki head. Aroma, caramel, nutty, some toffee. Flavor, caramel, toffee, some fruits. Pretty thin body, some bitterness on the end. Not a whole lot going on, just a mediocre brown ale. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2007 Red-black with good, creamy head / Light roast coffee nose / Medium body, with mild, fine carbonation, and faint finish / Flavors of roast malt, milk chocolate, and caramel, with a touch of citrus in the finish.
