12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before March 2013. Pours crystal clear reddish brown color with a nice 1-2 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, biscuit, toasted malt, roast, light coffee, toffee, herbal, and light dark fruits. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of chocolate, caramel, biscuit, toasted malt, nuttiness, toffee, roast, light coffee, and light herbal spiciness. Slight herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, biscuit, toffee, toast, nuttiness, and light herbal on the finish for a bit. Very nice flavor balance, complexity, and robustness; zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice brown ale! Nicely robust and full of balanced flavors; and very smooth to drink. Really enjoyed this one.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2017 The longer I spent with brooklyn's brown ale the more it grew on me, as the caramel malts and nutty overtones grew out of the thickness. However, the bottle basically exploded on me when I opened it, which was great fun. shoestring (419) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2017
Coffee toffee malt butter cocoa all in there. Bottled frothed air when opened so i feared a bad one but ok. Chocolatey texture and winey finish too with raisins. Desverger (12281) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2017

Cerveza tostada con caracter 100% americano. Color tostado muy oscuro con destellos caoba, filtrada. La espuma es de color marfil, escasa pero con buena retención. Buen equilibrio entre el dulzor de la malta el amargor del lúpulo. El aroma es suave, a café principalmente. Deja un sabor agradable y ligeramente amargo.
Buena cerveza que cumple con las expectativas. Jimbo2 (521) - DENMARK - JUL 17, 2017
