Ordered this at Pinchos in Norrköping, the only beer available that seemed okay. It was fine, similar to Newcastle, nothing special.

Pours a brown reddish colour, with a medium off white head that leaves a good lace when fades. Aroma of chocolate, some coffee, dried fruits. Medium to light body, standard carbonation, palate is rich and very creamy. Taste of chocolate, dried fruits, notes of coffee. OK.

TedE (1143) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 6, 2016
355ml bottle into shaker. Pours a deep copper with a solid cream-coloured head. Laces well. Malty nose, touches of toffee and fruit. A bit of a sour zing, a little hop bitterness, a hint of smoky malt. A bit ephemeral but certainly easy drinking.

Flaske 0.35L p Bark Spiseri og Bar. Farge klar mrk brun litt rdlig, med lys beige skum som forsvinner fort. Lukt syrlig frukt malt. Smak syrlige plommer, rstet malt, karamell. Mye syrlighet i starten, det ble bedre underveis. Alt i alt en god l

Brooklyn Brown Ale has a nice crisp aroma upon opening. It has a great color and a very fresh Taste. I would call this a hearty beer. It had a hint of caramel and a slightly bitter finish. I would rate the head as overall average. I'm not a huge brown ale fan, but I did like this one. It's a solid brown ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ulrikolsen (566) - DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear darkish brown with offwhite head. Aroma is malty with some caramel and roasted malt yet hoppy with some grassy notes. Taste is primarily malty with caramel and light roasted malt and a hint of chocolate. Taste has some hoppiness with grass, hay and straw. Finish is quite bitter and dry.

Dark brown color. Lovely aroma of chocolate and hops. Taste was a letdown, like most brown ales. Dry, hoppy, spritzy, with some lemon, roasty, and hop flavor. Probably tastes good with grilled food.
