I live in Florida now and for some reason, I can't get Brooklyn down here. When I get up to NY, the first thing I do is stop off and a store and buy a six of Brooklyn Brown Ale, and Brooklyn Lager! Teemu (15) - FINLAND - JAN 15, 2011
I am having difficulties decide which is better, this or Newcastle Brown Ale. Very smooth taste. chuck99 (10) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2002

It tastes great. Head doesn’t last, but the flavor lingers lovingly on the palate. Hint of chocolate, but not overpowering. Very good overall.

This is my favorite brown ale. Deep roasty and coffee notes with just the right amount of hop bitterness. TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Brooklyn Brown Ale pours to a bright, deep brown color with a creamy tan head, and a lively carbonation. The nose is packed with aromas of sweet malt, a touch of chocolate, some nutty notes, and zesty, cirtrus hop aromas. The palate is firm with good dark malt flavors of chestnut, chocolate, and touches of caramel malt sweetness. Some nice, fruity estery flavors are present as well. This beer finishes with a long, dry, zesty, cirtus hop bite that lingers on the tongue.
Brooklyn Brown Ale is a fantastic beer with great character. You get a lots of good malt and hop flavors, and I really enjoy drinking this beer, and American brown ale as a style. This beer would match well with a number of dishes. I would match this with beef Wellington, or perhaps steak and kidney pie. It would make a great desert beer as well, try it with creme brulee. Garrett Oliver, the brewmaster at Brooklyn Brewery, pairs his brown ale with a good cigar. This beer is well worth seeking out, and one that you will want to continue to drink for years. A classic.

Again this is what you want from a brown ale and Brooklyn have nailed it! Smooth clean and those caramal nutty notes you’d expect from a brown ale! Sold 3 kegs the first night it was tapped at the Winston ale house in north Hobart Tasmania, first time tapped in tassie and spoke for itself! Keep it up Brooklyn!

This is a great brown ale. The body is thick with a nice dark color, and a nice lasting head. The aroma and flavor is all malt, and has a strong nuttiness to it. There is also some sweetness from chocolate. The aftertaste is strong and lasting with a nutty flavor. A very good November beer.
