3.58/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

355 mL bottle from a six-pack picked up at the LCBO; best before Dec. 2014. Always excited to try a new beer from Brooklyn, one of my favourite 'big' American craft breweries. Served only slightly chilled.

This stout pours a fairly typical opaque blackish-brown colour, topped with just over one finger's worth of dense, creamy, tan-coloured head. Looks great, but that foam doesn't maintain cohesion for very long, as it soon dissipates into a thin cap and collar with some very slight lacing. The aroma offers up a mixture of roasted malts, baker's chocolate, coffee, and some earthy English hop notes. Straightforward, and about what I'd expect from the style.

A reasonably tasty stout, though it is not without its flaws. Roasted malt flavours are obviously the focus here, with cocoa and coffee bean notes coming through initially. A grainy malt sweetness comes through mid-sip, with some weak contributions from the roasted malts finishing it off. Dry finish, with a weak aftertaste that quickly vanishes from the palate. On the lighter side of medium-bodied, with the carbonation being a little too heavy for my liking. Minor gripes aside, there's nothing objectionable about this beer at all so it is certainly a valid session option.

Final Grade: 3.58, a B grade. While it's not the most interesting stout I've ever tried, Brooklyn's Dry Irish Stout is still a solid example of this highly sessionable style. The flavour profile should be quite agreeable to most palates, although the thin body and weak aftertaste prevents this from being a truly outstanding stout. A good introduction to the style for anyone curious, and something that I would consider picking up again. It's certainly better than Guinness, although it's probably not as pretty.

3.3/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

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.
