Ah, top o' the mornin' to ye lads and lasses that are readin' this! I bought the bottle last week during my latest visit to Highland Pizzeria expressly for the purpose of drinking and reviewing it today, St. Patrick's New Beer Sunday Day 2013. Slainte!

From the bottle: "Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout is a very dark beer, but don't let the color fool you. In Ireland, stouts were originally brewed to be 'session beers' that were light enough to stick with for a long evening, but flavorful enough to be fun to drink. We use large amounts of roasted grains to develop the nice coffee and chocolate flavors and the famed East Kent Golding hop lends to the earthy aroma. It's brisk enough to pair with oysters, but bold enough to handle a burger."

I am so stoked to drink this today! The label is printed in gold for Brooklyn Brewery, Kelly Green for the Irish Catholics, Orange for the Irish Protestants and White for the eventual peace that will bring an end to The Troubles. The finger of rocky, deep-tan head was active with carbonation and quickly bubbled away on the morn, leaving some lovely lacing in its wake. Color was a deep-brown with little light penetration, just enough to show off its garnet highlights, especially at the edges. Talk about truth in advertising! The nose smelled of strong black coffee, dark chocolate and freshly dug dirt. Spot on, lads! Mouthfeel was medium and the roastiness of the malt was the prevalent flavor in the mouth. I would put it more towards coffee than chocolate in terms of initial flavor. It was on the finish that I really tasted the dark chocolate strongly. The lacing clung to the glass the way I clung to my maternal Grummy's leg as she moved about in her kitchen making Irish Soda Bread and other traditional meals when I was but a wee one. This was the perfect beer to start the day. May the roof above your heads never fall in and may the friends underneath it never fall out!

Pours out a dark brown/ruby (almost black) body with a thin tan head. Smells very malty: toasty and roasty. Hops are a faint whisper of an aroma. Flavor is very light, with subtle malt sweetness and a roasted backbone. Finishes very dry. Mouthfeel is light bodied. Carbonation could be a touch smoother. I always look forward to this release. A great session stout.
