Poured a deep mahogoney (sp?) with a decent 1/2 inch foam top. Sweet malty head. Interesting blend of caramel and dark cherry fruitiness. Full-bodied. Good for the porch on a cool fall evening.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2008 Thick head with nice lacing on the glass. Sort of chocolate malty taste, with a crisp finish and a slightly creamy aftertaste. This is a very drinkable dark ale. Would be a great introductory dark beer for someone that isnt sure theyre ready for something heavier.

Very dark brown with a nutty-sweet aroma. Taste was less than great, possibly due to my heavy eating prior to this beer. Sweet, chocolatish malts were OK. This beer was too "in between" for me - Id prefer either an amber or a nice stout, but not this half-breed that isnt all that special.

via trade with goldtwins - Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. Has a light caramel malt aroma and flavor. Has a lingering, dry aftertaste. Light to medium body. A decent beer. Thanks Larry.

Nice dark mahogony body with a creamy tan head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with some chocolate and light fruits. Taste was nice, nutty with some cherry possibly. A refreshing beer overall.

Draft at the Brooklyn Brewery. I guess i had this beer as fresh as it could get. Nice dark brown look to it, with a dark khaki looking head to top it off. A bit of a toasty hoppy smell to it with hints of almonds. very creamy and refreshing im sure this beer can be enjoyed on any occasion.

Sampled from bottle at River’s Bend on <b>9/1/2006</b> - Thanks Matt! I really enjoy all of Brooklyn’s brews which is why they are one of my favorites. Their brews are always aromatic, tasty, and true to the style. I feel that they are above average and worth trying at least once. For me, Brooklyn beer is what I usually go after when I need a good, somewhat unique, and relatively affordable 6-pack. Other than that, I will have to add more specific comments once I have a chance to really taste this beer again, although the Brown Ale is one of their best!<i>Rating: 7 3 8 3 15 = 3.6.</i>

<b>9/18/2008</b>: Brooklyn Brown Ale has an aroma that contains some semi-sweet chocolate and sweet, caramelized malts. Its appearance consists of a transparent dark brown color that’s very attractive and a frothy beige head. The tongue is met with a well-blended and well-balanced malty flavor with a mildly hopped finish. Caramelized and some darker roasted maltiness is noted along with chocolate, fruity molasses, and a dry, roasty finish. Smooth and medium-bodied, this is another great beer from Brooklyn and a really, really good Brown Ale in general!

<i>12 fl. oz. bottle (Alc. 5.1% by Vol.) from 6-pack purchased at Jungle Jim’s International Market in Fairfield, Ohio. Rating: 7 4 8 3 15 = 3.7.</i>
