I'm a big fan of this american take on a classic style. It's packed with flavor and complexity you'd expect from a bigger stout, but is still light and easy drinking. Love love love. If I can find bottles of this it would be my go to easy drinking dark beer.

I had this on tap. It has a roast nose - coffee and chocolate with some sweet notes. It pours dense black. It has the dry stout roast and burnt barley bitterness but it has traces of sweetness in the background that are separate from the roast. the body is medium full and the carbonation medium.

12 oz bottle, poured into a shaker pint at ~45 degrees F.

Appearance: Pours a dark almost-black brown, with ruddy hints of light glowing sullenly at the bottom edge of the glass. Forms almost no head, and what does form vanishes quickly, save for a very thin pale ring.

Smell: Dark black roasted grains in a field of pollen and flowers, like a farmer's crop had been burned away and nature were just beginning to reclaim the land. There's something vaguely acrid as well, and some ghosts of something wooden.

Taste: Blackened malt grain stars, with hints popping up here and there of floral notes, earthiness, ashes, chocolate, light coffee, and very vague fruitiness. Nothing is ever fully prominent save the roasted malt, with the other flavors rolling over and into one another in the background.

Mouthfeel: Light and close to watery without ever verging on actual water, this is pretty close to what an Irish stout should drink like.

Overall: Not a bad go at an Irish stout. A little more identity to the flavor profile, rather than being everything and nothing at the same time, and this could be fantastic. As it stands, it's solid.

Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout - Brooklyn Brewery. Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass, this has got a huge four finger thick, spongelike tan head, solid lacing, and a very dark brown body. Quite an eye-pleaser.

I smell toasty malt along with full bodied malts. Not much hops are hitting the nose, but I wasn't really expecting that.

Tastes also like toasty malts, also with a small touch of chocolate and coffee mentioned on the label. Pretty easy on the palate.

This brew's mouthfeel is smooth and clean.


I'll give Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout - Brooklyn Brewery a 4.25 This is an easy-going stout that you can knock back a couple of and not feel sleepy. Nicely done by these guys.

A: deep brown in color; 1 finger medium brown head that receded to a thin collar; nice lacing;

S: deeply roasted grain; perhaps a hint of bittersweet chocolate and coffee;

T: not a lot of flavor; what's there is roasted grain; a little sharpness up front; a bit of tartness at mid-palate; light bitterness at the end;

M: medium bodied; creamy carbonation; medium dry finish

O: OK, but not very interesting;

Not as creamy as Guinness, and does not have as strong of the roasted barley taste. A bit more watery. Light for a stout. Definitely decent but not the ultimate

Poured dark caramel brown. Persistent tan head that leaves a ring and wet slippery lace. Pours with a thickness. Nose is roasty grain. Smooth sweetness from caramel under that. Earthy, coffee and a malty sweetness. Taste is good. Sharp and full of flavor. Roasty gran with a slight hop bitterness to give it edge. Drinks dry and very crisp. Lightly sweet. A smooth and quick drink that finishes dry and with plenty of maltiness to linger. Textbook dry stout with a rich and full mouthfeel. Smooth and creamy too.
