4.3/5 rDev +18.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Gorgeously deep and hazey cherrywood brown with a dark beige crown of firm foam that grabs about a finger height of might. A few spots and thinnly spread strings of lace stick about the glass all the while keeping a strong skim the entire session.
Aroma has some cocoa and roasty nuttyness about it while maintaining an airyness about the nose. It's not strong, but it's welcome, rounded, and clean. Drier maltness of pale, roasted, and brown malt tend to get in there with just a pinch of dry grassy hops too.
Taste is quite solid and bold for a Brown. Lengthy cocoa-esque dryness puffs about with dried toffee bits, whispy vanilla hints, and roasted nuttyness. There's some nice nuances and complexity to it that most brown ales fall very short on. This is faintly sweet with a darker breadyness behind its overall grazing dryness of roasty nuttyness(hazelnut)and cocoa fluffy tint.
Has a wholesome, lightly sweet and dryish medium, smooth body. Carbonation is just light enough to put just the right spark of bite on the palate while it places a very nice airy touch to dryness. The dryness is what carries a good amount of the complexities of the flavors as the sweetness holds it all together.
One impressive Brown and very sessionable to boot.
Brooklyn Brown Ale gets a thumbs up, and in a style that usually doesn't even get a thumb from me.

Poured this into a glass, it has a Mahogany color body with thin head. The aroma has roasty malt and a little hop coming from it. The taste has a roasty, chocolaty up front and a little hop towards the back. The malt is more dominant than the hops. Mouthfeel is smooth and overall a good beer.
