look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

355 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pitch brownish-black with a moderate amount of tan head that settles out quickly into a thin topcoat. Aroma is rather subdued but pleasant, milk chocolate is the main vibe I am getting along with coffee and hints of caramel and charcoal. Slight earthy Goldings hop. Palate flips the script and is predominantly coffee, more earthy and dry than the nose suggests. Hints of red berry. Drinkable (read: thin bodied), rather fizzy, and slightly citric. The sour note is likely an attempt to emulate the vaunted Guinness soured flavor and frankly manages to trump the original, although this is perhaps better described as an alkaline "soda" effect here. Not bad but finishes strangely empty and I think the intended target was overshot with regards to sessionability. Looking for the flavors to pop more.

Poured from a 12 fl oz (355 ml) bottle into a tulip glass.

You can never go wrong with a brew from The Brooklyn Brewery. Nose is a nice roast hops with a airy scent of coffee. Pours a rich dark brown almost black like liquid dark chocolate. Head has small bubbles, rich in appearance that hugs the inner glass. Second nose now detects the chocolate but barely. First taste is light: More coffee than chocolate, although it's there (can't really call it mocha: the two are distinct on their own). I don't think they roasted the hops as long as one might usually to produce a porter, stout or doppelbock. Surprisingly crisp at the finish. One disappointment of the Dry Irish Stout is that with all these interactions, I found it somewhat one dimensional. The flavours and the ingredients didn't seem to be layered together as well I thought it ought to be. Still, this is a very good, yet disarmingly easy-going brew.

03/27/14 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC.

First impression is a lack of body. Maybe I'm spoiled w/nitro laced stouts but methinks they are prevalent in the field for a reason.

Coffee flavors border on espresso strength. Very slight head w/delicate/wispy lacing. Virtually no aftertaste.

Bottom line: this is a perfect example of how flavor is not all it takes for a brew these days. There is a substantial flavor but it's seems one dimensional especially without a robust texture to match.
