Brooklyn Brewery East India Pale Ale


NAME: Brooklyn Brewery East India Pale Ale
TYPE: American IPA
ORIGIN: Brooklyn NY
ABV: 6.9%
REVIEW: Sweet, lemon,orange, floral notes. Very smooth, not aggressively bitter, but the hops kick in at the end for a bittersweet finish. Really drinkable beer, good for a BBQ or for a picture in front of a BBQ.

ORIGIN: Brooklyn, NYC
ABV: 5.2%
REVIEW: Pours amber with substantial head, fresh smelling, nice citrusy hoppy aroma, malty and clean tasting with a nice hoppy kick at the end. Slightly biscuity mouthfeel. Really nice, drinkable lager to wash down some greasy Chinese food.

Brooklyn Brewery Black Chocolate Stout


Brought this beer to Christmas Dinner at a friend’s house.  Here’s the review:

NAME: Brooklyn Brewery Black Chocolate Stout
ORIGIN: Brooklyn, New York, NY
TYPE: Russian Imperial Stout
ABV: 10%
REVIEW: Pours jet black, with a light champagne color head. On the nose you get cocoa, coffee beans, a little vanilla. The taste is smooth, roasty, nice bitterness that reminds me of dark chocolate, a little boozy and smoky at the end. Velvety mouth feel, kind of heavy.  I’m usually not a huge fan of Brooklyn Brewery stuff but this was a solid, full-bodied stout, went great with our roast rib eye and mashed potatoes!
