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.

On tap at Queen Vic in Houston.

A: Pours a dark coffee brown, almost black with a bit of ruby around the edges. A two finger khaki head forms with good retention. Plenty of sticky lace is left behind.
S: Roasted and toasted malt. A bit of coffee and light cream. Dry, slightly bitter chocolate. Simple, but very nice.
T: Well balanced roasted malt and toasted bread/biscuit flavors. Some coffee and a bit of dry coco powder. Again, not a lot going on. Though everything works perfectly together.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. A crisp, dry bite. Still smooth and creamy at the same time. So easy and enjoyable to drink. This pared perfectly with my fish n chips.

I am typically not a huge fan of Brooklyn, or the style for that matter. I guess when the style is crappy nitro abominations that is to be expected. Though this is excellent. Subtle, but with plenty of character to go around. I very much enjoyed this, and highly recommended.

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.
