look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

First time having Brooklyn Irish Dry Stout. Picked out a fresh pint glass for the occasion.

Pours dark brown with almost two-fingers of a light tan cap. I forgot I bought this from a stand at room temperature, so I'm enjoying it at nearly the same.

Smells roasty and fairly dry. Some charred grain and light coffee notes mixing in and out of the nose. There is a slight hop earthiness pulling through as well. Very mild, even at this warmth.

Coffee and cocoa are both somewhat here, with coffee the front-runner. More char from the roasted malts apparent. Exquisite dryness in a stout, indicative of style. Not overly minerally or phenolically peaty. Hints of all of that, sure. A brighter nickel note surfaces in the finality as the finish dries up. Earthy English hops carry through with some added bitterness and vegetal notes.

Has a round mouthfeel, despite the beer being thinner than expected. Carbonation is a little bit too amped up. Polishes off nicely, even well above serving temperature. A few flaws exposed here in taste and in feel. Easily sessionable.

The feel is a letdown, and I'm not saying the beer has to have that creamy nitro Guinness thing going on. This one's still just a little too coarse, doesn't offer much else in flavor other than dry roast and coffee and earthy tones, and is just too faulty with attenuation and blandness. It's definitely not standing up to the Blue Chevre I'm eating. Let's hope it cools down and pairs well with a dinner of mushroom-swiss burgers and onion rings.

A very ordinary, not very stouty stout.

Moderate head immediately dissipates and doesn't leave even so much as a ring. Cola coloured brew.

Subdued nose, primarily malt and caramel. Taste is about the same, gentle malt and caramel, a touch of charcoal. Mouth feel is tart to begin, finishes slightly drying. Stout light is what this is I guess. Drinkable and inoffensive, but no real excitement in the glass.

Purchased at the LCBO served at 8deg C in a tulip glass

A- Very good. Opens well and pours dark

O- Not so good. This rating is higher than I should give.

Food Pairing

This unusual beer would go well with... grilled cheese sandwiches

Enjoy
