Brooklyn: Brown Ale

First, I would like to start off by apologizing to both my loyal readers. I'm in the midst of moving, and forgot to post my review last night. I did my penance by only having one drink tonight, as opposed to the usual 12 pack.

Now, I first discovered the Brooklyn Brewery about five years ago and immediately fell in love with them. Their book is fantastic and it's totally my dream to emulate their success. I haven't loved all their brews, but for the most part I've been a big big fan. Tonight I decided to try the Brown Ale.

I've never had it before, and I gotta say it wasn't too shabby. I'd compare it to the Sam Adams Brown, with a more chocolaty taste to it. It only has a 5.6%abv, which is a little low compared to some of my recent reviews, but I was pretty happy with it overall. The chocolate definitely dominated and you could still taste the malt, but I was a little disappointed in the lack of hops. I'm going to give this brew a solid 3. Not out of this world spectacular, but without a doubt worth a six pack purchase.
