Brooklyn Brown Ale ....

Today's beer is Brown Ale from Brooklyn Brewery.  The twelve ounce bottle lists 5.6% ABV.  Their web site shows 30 IBUs.

This beer poured with a medium, rich brown head; tan or a little darker.  Beer color is a dark reddish brown that lets a small amount of light through the glass.  There is some fine sediment floating around in the beer.  The aroma is a nice mix of coffee and cocoa, with a little sweet caramel.  The taste has some roasted malt, a little bitterness, caramel, coffee.  It finishes dry with a little cocoa; you even have that feeling of cocoa on the tongue.  The aftertaste leaves you with cocoa and a little bitterness.
