Poured into a Guinness pint glass a deep dark chocolate brown with a half finger beige colored head that held pretty well.Aromas consisted mainly of coffee and earth with mild bitter chocolate.A fuller nice feel in the mouth,pretty smooth.Dry and roasted on the palate as it should be,dark roast coffee,unsweetened chocolate,and earthiness mainly stood out.A no frills but pretty true to form Irish stout,I would drink again.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

Excellent frothing, three fingers tall. A few shades away from black with ruby highlights. Soft roasty aroma, mild chocolate, chicory, caramel and woody hops in the nose as well. Very smooth, slightly slick, medium bodied. Kiss of roasted grain, mild charcoal, hint of coffee, light sweetness, balanced hoppiness, finishes with a lingering charred note and semi-dry.

Pretty good, I'd still order this over Guinness Draught as that beer has certainly not been up to par with me for a while.

12 ounce bottle, BB June 2013 etched onto the bottle.

Pours dark brown, dark tan head, stays a bit, and leaves some sheeting and strands and bits of lacing.

Milk chocolate nose, with some vanilla and dark malts.

More chocolate on the palate. Milk chocolate, bitter chocolate, vanilla, roasty malts

Dry finish as advertized...nice new offering from BKLYN

On tap at the Common Table.

The beer pours a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma has a good bit of chocolate in it, as well as a hint of roasted malt. The flavor is very similar. There is a ton of dry cocoa notes in the flavor, as well as some roasted malt. The beer is very dry overall. Thin mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint. My wife says that if I point out that it is a Brooklyn glass, then I am a capital D dork, rather than just a regular dork.

Appearance: Ruby black with initial moderate head, but it mostly dissipates, so that it ultimately looks like coke.

Smell: Smells like dry roasted malts, with touches of char, smoke, coffee and molasses. Some light, floral hops as well.

Taste: Same as the aroma, with light roasted notes of smoke, coffee and burnt molasses. Finish has some light hoppy notes along with the roasted bite.

Feel: Light bodied (as expected) with moderate carbonation. Finish is very dry and crisp.

Overall: Very drinkable, everyday Irish Stout. Enjoyable but doesn't stand out.

served on tap into a standard pint glass at Mammoser's Tavern in Hamburg, NY.

nearly black body with about one finger's worth of light tan colored head, faded to nothing after 5 minutes or so.

not too much going on in the aroma, pretty much typical of the style. lightly roasted malts with some slightly sweet toasted malts. only slightly fruity.

very similar to the aroma. sweet toasted malts and some fruity like esters with some light roasted malt.

slightly heavier side of light bodied. carbonation is just a touch on the high side. finishes with a light dry bitter feel.

overall this was pretty average for the style. i feel like a nitro tap would improve this beer overall so much. id gladly take this over guiness, slightly more flavor and body, but really not something i would buy again.

On tap at the Happy Gnome in St. Paul. Served in a standard shaker pint glass. This comes in at 3.9 ABV according to the bar beer menu.

Appearance: Dark black with a little bit of a brownish color on the edges of the glass. Moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of light tan head with decent retention and lots of lacing on the glass.

Smell: A fairly sweet aroma of dark roasted malts with hints of caramel, toffee, chocolate, coffee, and nuts. Nice biscuit like smell with some sugar. Light hint of earthy hops in the background.

Taste: A roasty and yeasty taste of dark biscuity malts. Some notes of chocolate, coffee, caramel, toffee, sugar, and a little bit of nuts. Light earthy noble hop presence towards the finish. Pretty nice for such a small beer.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Very creamy and smooth. Starts somewhat sweet and has a drying finish.

Overall: A very good take on an Irish Dry Stout. Very impressive taste for an ABV lower than the typical mass produced light beer.

An excellent session ale found on tap at Mad Mex Robinson, pours a pitch black body with a light khaki tan airy head...fluffy texture forming everlasting head that has great retention. Aroma kicks up mild herbal earthy mint like hop edge, amongst the dark roasted malts, creamy textured hints of dark chocolate and mild coffee but remains pleasantly roasty with malt character. I noticed a non nitro tap which was a plus and actually brought out more character in this beer. Dark roasted malts bring ample bitterness a touch of tea like leafy earthiness going on as well, but a semi sweet multi-dimensional malt complexity comes forth with each sip...hints of creaminess, dark chocolate roasts in a light stout form. Mouthfeel was medium bodied easy to drink, nothing cloying or harsh on the palate very approachable beer to drink in number. Overall, I'm happy to see Brooklyn putting out a stout other than Black Ops, or their Chocolate Stout, this was pure brilliance.

3.58/5  rDev +0.6%

12 oz bottle of "Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout", 4.7% alcohol, served in a Belgian snifter.

A: The beer pours very dark mahogany brown, looking near black in the glass; a deep ruby color is visible at the edges of the glass under bright light. The moderate size, tan colored head soon died down to a thin partial top coat and a durable collar around the edge of the glass, with patchy lacing left on the sides.

Rather simple but attractive aroma of sweet and roasted malts. The taste reveals some subtle but spicy hops mixed with a stronger flavor of dark roasted malts. Sweet, with hints of chocolate up front, and some coffee in the mildly bitter finish.

M: Light+ bodied: about as expected. Some dryness; moderate carbonation.

O: No apparent flaws, but rather mild flavor and not very complex or interesting either.

(Served in a Nonic)
A- This beer pours a jet black body with a tan film of cream on top

S- The mellow roasted black malt is nice but a bit soft

T- The roasted black malt is gentle with a slightly inky note and a slight tartness in the finish.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a scrubbing fizz finish that blends in with the tartness.

O- The tartness starts to overpower the mellow black malt flavor and the overall flavor is a bit light and one-dimensional. I was a bit underwhelmed considering the quality stuff Brooklyn does.
