Complete the form below to tell us about the problematic review for Brooklyn Brewery, which says:
"I recently enjoyed brewmaster Garrett Oliver's visit to Baltimore's "Max's on Broadway," though due to the crowd, I couldn't sample all of the beers. Brooklyn Pilsner struck me as a malty, flavorful Pils with little bitterness and a clean finish. Brooklyn Lager, a Vienna/Marzen, had a nicely balanced malty sweetness and a malty finish. Brooklyn Pennant Pale Ale '55 (celebrating the world championship of the Brooklyn Dodger, but ironically brewed with MARIS Otter Malt), described by Mr. Oliver as an ESB, is a fine pale ale with a nice hop finish. Mr. Oliver described Brooklyn East India Pale Ale (EIPA) as being close to the historic IPA style with its high alcohol content (7% abv). I can't dispute that, but for my own tastes, I found the alcohol flavor competed too much with the hop flavor; still, I liked it. Mr. Oliver described Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout as his "resume beer," brewed at his previous job in order to get his current job; it's a Russian Imperial Stout.
Garrett Oliver is one of the most interesting and charasmatic brewers I've met. Having been told that the EIPA was previously a seasonal, I asked if any of the seasonals hadn't caught on. He told me that the Brooklyn Dry Stout, available in the spring, has had difficulty breaking into the crowded market, but they'll try again as it is one of his favorite styles. He also mentioned, to the entire room, that this winter's Brooklyn Monster Ale (barleywine), due anyday, will be extra strong: 12.3% abv."
