We are planning to begin revising our language documentation soon.  If you want to take a look at the old, incomplete language reference, it's available here:

Keep in mind while reading it that it was written before the new style of scripts in Bro 2.0 was created so there is a huge amount of information that is either misleading or wrong.  Generally though, the actual language itself hasn't changed greatly and as always the absolute best reference is the scripts and tests themselves.
