What an excellent brown ale! Poured a wonderful deep brown with great head and good lacing throughout. A wonderful deep and dark malty aroma, with wonderful woodiness and roastiness. It's a great ent-draught flavor, with a deep dark malty tone and wonderful slight earthy finish. Goes down deep and thick, quite wonderful indeed!

A: This beer pours a very deep and dark amber/ mahogany color with a thin but really creamy, off white film that just blankets the top. Very nice looking beer!

S: Aroma is of roasted malt and barley with signatures of coffee and vanilla. There is a small presence of hops at the end.

T: I get an initial coffee flavor that is followed by vanilla and oak. Roasted malts come through in the middle of the tongue, finishes with dry hops and yeast.

M: Initial pour had lots of carbonation but settles down as the beer warms. Rich, creamy and smooth ultimately defines this dark bodied beer.

O: This Brown ale is a lot darker and thicker than most other brown ales I have had. The creamy and smooth texture combined with the balance of flavor really makes this a complete Brown Ale. I got this in a mix-a-six, but would by a 6 pack all by its self. One of the best Brown Ales I have had thus far!

First beer from Brooklyn that I tried. Poured with deep red color almost brown. Deep deep red. Head faded into little bit of foam. Aroma fantastic. Deep figs. Cherries. Fruit. Some hops. Then the taste. Great coffee flavor and roasted chestnuts. Some biscuit flavor. Love it here. Mouthfeel great like silk. Man this is a winner. First zbrooklyn beer but won't ne my last.

BROWN ALE FROM BROOKLYN YES PLEASE

I had this at an informal brown ale tasting and I chose this as the winner in my book.
Poured a dark mahogany with a tiny rim of head.
The smell was wonderful. French roast coffee, roasted sticky malts mixed with minor floral hops.
I enjoyed the sweet malt tied with dark fruits much like figs or slightly green plums when tasting. It ended with a mild citrus note. Once it warmed hazelnuts surfaced just adding to the already wonderful flavors.
It had a thin minor syrupy consistency with moderate carbonation .
This was great beer. All the subtle flavors worked marvelously together.

This is an all around good beer. I visited the brewery and was amazed by the dedication to the specific styles of beer the have embraced. The beer itself is worth the effort.

Dark brown, more so than I'd expect for the style. Hazlenut and roast dominate the smell. The flavor follows suit. Coffee roast dominates but it gives way to a subtle malt that banishes any thought of bitterness. Wow. Really, truly impressive. Mothfeel is silky and ribbon soft. Just enough carbonation to add interest. Drinkability? Barkeep, hit me again!
