Brooklyn Brown Ale, made exclusively with American ingredients, won Bronze medals at the Great American Beer Festival in the Strong Ale Category in 1991 and in the American Brown Ale Category in 1992. Brooklyn Brown uses pale, crystal, chocolate, and black malts to attain a complex creamy texture. It is more heavily hopped than its British forbears.

Bottle. Dark, almost red. Rich brew, full of taste, Brown bread, coffee, dark chocolate all rounded up by dry hops.

35.5 cL bottle. Pours deep brown with a hazzlenut brown hue, creamy off-white head. Sweet fruity aroma with a mild roasted malt beneath. Light to medium bodied which is in contrast to the quite flavourful experience that follows. Starts dark roasted with a clear acidity before a more breadish malt note turns up. It does however never get to the point that the flavour shows the sweetness that seems present in the aroma, it rather stays acidic for then to turn into a more bitter and hoppy finish showing some flavour smoothness along the way: caramel, chocolate and a whiff of vanilla. Has a slight liqourice edge in the finish. Clearly the most hoppy brown ale I’ve had. Nice.

A dark brown, almost too dark to look thru, beer with a nice light brown head. The aroma is very sweet - like most Brooklyn brews. The flavor is acidic, sweet at first, but then the chocolate, smoke, dryness, and woodiness hits you - great flavor. OK palate - great at first and end - but a little weak in the middle.

joergen (29598) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2004
Brown colour with a small white head. Aroma of berries, malt and a bit coffee. Taste of spices, berries, malt and coffee, with a slight bitter aftertaste. Nice brown ale.

omhper (25949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Cask conditioned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear dark brown. Evident roasty malt aroma. Medium sweet with rounded mouthfeel and firm malt character. It’s dominated by the roasty malt, but there are hints of licorice and perfumy hops as well. Medium bitterness.
