Single finger head on a jet black body with decent lacing. Aroma is mild with roasted malt, mild licorice and chocolate note. Flavor is fairy watery with mostly roasted malt and light earthy and chocolate notes. Light bodies and moderate carbonation. Not my favorite genre as most are usually pretty simple. This one is definitely highly drinkable

A: The beer is nearly jet black in color; a deep red color is visible near the bottom of the glass when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a finger and a half high tan colored head that gradually died down and left a thick collar around the edge of the glass and some lacing down the sides.
S: There are light aromas of roasted malts in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the roasted malt flavors are a bit stronger and there are also some hints of burnt malts and a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels mostly light-bodied and a little thin and airy on the palate with a bit of dryness and a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: This beer doesn't have a very complex aroma or taste, but it's extremely sessionable. I would imagine that this would taste even better on a nitro-tap.

As a tribute to one day of the year when we are all Irish, Brooklyn's Irish Dry Stout lives up to the name's sake with a highly roasty ale and surprisingly light finish.

The Stout pours with a very dark brown, maybe black appearance and with a glossy onyx-like sheen. A creamy whiter-than-expected white head caps the beer perfectly and offers rings of lace with each sip. A very masculine-looking beer!

Mild aromas of burnt toast, coffeeish roast, light caramel and cocoa. There's a malty scent than reminds me of nouget candies. Virtually no hop presence except for the lightest wood note, the beer has a simplified and clean aromatic set.

Flavors come about in the same fashion as aromas and quickly remind me of Guinness Draught. But the creamy flavors allow for greater penetration of roast, toast, and burnt embers. A most timid malt flavor and sweetness is similar to malted candies and caramel but are burried deep underneath the roasty focus. Mild hop bitterness weaves into the roasty coffee character as to not know when the roasty bitterness stops and the hoppy bitterness takes over. This is a very clean and easy drinking Stout.

Foregoing the predictable creaminess of nitrogen-infused Dry Stouts, Brooklyn allows the normal carbonation to develop a creamy malt texture that fades nicely into dry-roast texture in finish. With mild alcohol warmth and the powdery feel of roasted barley, the beer is surprisingly clean and refreshing in finish.

Brooklyn's Irish Dry Stout is a great and characterful ale to drink while clinging mugs with pub goers on the greenest holiday without worry of accessive drunkenness or palate fatigue. But for the staunch Stout lover, the beer is going to seem timid and lackluster.

Bottle: Poured a dark color stout with a large brown foamy head with very limited retention. Aroma of light dry roasted malt is not as powerful as I had expected. Taste is reminiscent of dry roasted malt with light Coke notes. Body is thin and carbonation is way too strong for style and resemble more of a cola than a beer. Drainpour.

12oz glass @undergroundedm, during the kickoff of their Brooklyn tap takeover.

This beer appears a very dark, almost black brown, with pervasive reddish highlights, and one finger of dense, puffy beige head, which leaves some bubbling chauldron lace around the glass as it genially recedes.

It smells of dry roasted malt, bittersweet cocoa powder, day-old coffee, and muddled citrus, leafy hops. The taste is more of the same, in a goodly way, with the toasty, roasty, and lightly caramelized malt, milk chocolate, a separate lactic sweetness, subtle standing coffee, and very understated citrus and earthy hops.

The bubbles are predictably low-key and underpowered, the body medium-light in weight, mostly smooth (the char seems to interfere here), and a tad creamy overall. It finishes off-dry, the nutty chocolate pushing through the roast.

A tasty enough Irish dry stout, with a fair bit more sweetness than expected, but that doesn't really matter, as it all works together to produce a commendable alternative to you-know-who.

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.

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

BB JUN 2013

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, near black body with a foamy, sandy brown head that settles out at a steady pace.

Smell: Roasted malts with a light scent of coffee, a little chocolate, too, and oven-roasted nuts. The hops mingle with the maltiness in the aroma to give a slight touch of Captain Black tobacco.

Taste: Malts notes of cola flavors, bittersweet chocolate, charred nuts, some dark caramel, roasted malt. Medium-low sweetness. English hops provide a little herbal bite and sufficient bitterness. A little hint of smokiness and some fruitiness comes out upon warming. Drying, herbal, nutty, mildly roasty finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: Not bad! I'm actually happy have a readily available dry stout in bottles that isn't nitrogen infused.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Somehow, this beer seems funnier after having just watched Gangs of New York... Anyway, this stuff pours a deep black-brown topped by a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises mild coffee, roasted malts, and a twinge of bitter dark chocolate. The taste brings in more of the same, focusing on the coffee, darkening the roast of the malts, and adding a hint of cola in the background. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a surprisingly watery feel. Overall, a decent little Irish stout, but one that's way too thin for its own good and not creamy enough for mine.

A - poured with one finger of off white foam on a dark brown body. The head settles slowly and leaves nice lace.

S - a light aroma of dry, toasted grain and coffee.

T - dry grainy malt up front with some chicory. More roasty in the middle with bitter chocolate and light hops in the finish.

M - medium thick body, moderate carbonation, and a very dry finish.

D - quite drinkable and well made, not complex but enjoyable.

Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout
12 oz. brown glass bottle, "BB MAY 2015 3294 12:39"

Once you get past the question of why you'd want an Irish-style stout brewed in the US, you can then ask the question of how good it is.

It's not nitrogenated, although that didn't occur until 1964 with draught Guinness so it's not historic and doesn't really matter here. And it does have a little bit of a sour tang to it, which would be historically accurate, although neither this nor the current Guinness are even nearly as sour as the stouts of yesteryear would have been. I think the twang here is really just from a low pH, and not due to any soured beer added back in as Guinness does.

If you think along the lines of a Guinness Foreign Extra stout with a much lower starting gravity and adjusted bitterness you'll have a pretty good idea of what this beer is about. It's roast and chocolatey, and slightly caramelish. It's about the malt, and there's really just a little bit of hop in the flavor, which is probably not even equal to the fruitiness of the yeast, which is also limited.

It's a difficult beer to formulate in some ways because the style, really, is a bit disjointed. It's got spikes of roastiness, bitterness, and acidity; and there's some of that here but it seems that Brooklyn wanted to try to round it out at least a little bit to make it more drinkable, which it is.

So why would I want an Irish style stout brewed in the US? To celebrate Saint Patricks Day, of course! Although Guinness is seen as quintessentially Irish, it's actually an English company that persecuted the Irish. Arthur was a committed unionist and opponent of Irish nationalism; and his decedents financially supported the Ulster Volunteer Force and allegedly lent men and equipment to the British Army during the Easter Rising of 1916. So this year I'll have a Murphy's, a Beamish, or a Brooklyn... but I won't support Guinness.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color with a thin beige head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains roasted malts chocolate, some coffee and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a roasted malt character followed by mild flavors of chocolate and coffee. The hops presence is very mild and brings a little bit of balance. The after-taste is bitter-sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, high carbonation for the style, finish is chalky and dry.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style. It’s a decent beer to drink for a while but there are better choices in the style.

Pours a darker off white 1/2 finger slight creamy fizzy head that fades fairly quickly, no real lacing, almost pitch black color pretty much no light coming through.

Nose light roasty malts, light black malt, hint toasty biscuit like malt, caramel. Hops are light but interesting, light earthy grassy, but a hint of minty pine.

Taste starts with dark malts, little chalky and quite dry, black malts with a touch of acrid and slight char, maybe even burnt, that send to come with the powdered flavors. Fair bitterness from light earthy hops, faint hint of pine. Malts also bring light caramel and toasty biscuit. Finish is still quite dry, lingering bitterness with more earthy hops, little chewy hop, light black malt too.

Mouth is med bodied, nice carb, quite dry overall.

Overall not bad, decent malt profile but gets slightly burnt acrid, nice hop addition, etc.

On tap into a pint glass. Pours black/dark brown in the glass with a think covering of mocha foam. Solid retention and lacing. The aroma smells of cocoa, roasted coffee and a good bit of ripe citric hops, all giving this a rich tanginess in the nostrils. The taste is the same, with a smooth mix of chocolate, dark coffee flavors, some rather assertive ripe citrus flavors and a then a dry roasted finish. The feel is medium with a smooth and creamy carbonation in the mouth. Maybe it was the freshness here on draft but those hops really had a nice pop to them, with this overall having richness to the flavors that I wasn’t expecting. Maybe not exactly to style but I really enjoyed this.

This is quite the roasty and toasty stout. The dry tone doesn't really show up until the back end. But the roasted character really overshadows everything else, but not in too obnoxious a fashion. Easy to drink and consistent. Nice session beer, though I think it leans more towards American stout than a dry Irish one.

I enjoyed this as part of a mix-a-six from Giant in Linglestown, PA, enjoyed chilled from a Nonic.

The color is black with opaque clarity and thick deep beige rocky head with small beading which leaves copius lace on the glass -has a classic dry stout look. The smell is very enticing with lots of yeast notes and moderately high roasted barley aroma with mild raisin and mineral accents. The feel is very good with semi-dry entry and moderately carbonated with slight bitterness and roasted texture of dark grain with mild sweetness overall and light alcohol on the palate.

The taste has a slight fruity taste from the yeast with mild chalky mineral essence and semi-high roastiness with no real bitter burnt flavor just nutty and almost bready malt with mild creamy and raisiny taste in the back with some light bitterness and gentle woody earthy character as it finishes dry. This is a great beer, which is an excellent example of the style with appropriate abv and dry texture and plenty of flavor considering the low abv, I would order this over Guinness since it seems fresher in taste.

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.

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.

12 fl oz brown glass bottle with appealing but simple label and branded silver pry-off pressure cap acquired at a local corner mart as part of a 6 pack and served into an Avery stem-tulip in me gaff in low altitude Austin, Texas. Reviewed live. Expectations are high given the style - which is one of me favourites - and the brewery. 4.7% ABV according to the label. "Best before May 2014."

Served chilled and allowed to come to temperature over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: No bubble show forms as it's poured.

Pours a half finger wide khaki colour head. Okay creaminess and thickness. No lacing actually sticks to the sides of the glass. Head retention is bad - about 1 minute.

Body colour is a predictable opaque solid black. No floating yeast particles are visible. Appears a biteen undercarbonated.

Overall, it's a generally appealing appearance for an Irish stout, but lacks the strong head and unique dark ruby appearance of the best beers in the style.

Sm: Ah yes. Has that lovely roasted barley/dark malt build I love in beers of this style. Also, some chocolate malt, caramel, and touches of a very mild but balancing hop presence. Brief hints of vanilla and coffee too.

No yeast character, alcohol, or off-notes are detectable.

It's a pleasant aroma of average strength, and fits the style very well. I can't wait for the first sip.

T: Very well balanced, if fairly simple. Dark malts, chocolate malts, hints of buried chocolate, vanilla, cream, and coffee. There's also a touch of faint licorice. Unfortunately, the roasted barley notes that are the heart of this style are barely perceptible here, which really holds the beer back.

Average depth, duration, and intensity of flavour. Not a real complex, intricate, or nuanced build for the style, but I do like it. Cohesive, but far from gestalt.

No yeast character, alcohol, or off-flavours come through.

As much as I like it, it seems a bit uninspired. They don't really boldly go for anything unique or special here; it just feels like a "let's imitate an Irish stout" approach to brewing the style. They're not striving for anything new.

Mf: Creamy - but not quite enough. Mild thickness. Medium body. Should be more dry and more coarse. Filling. Has a nice presence on the palate overall, but this texture doesn't feel like an ideal companion to the taste. Overcarbonated. Feels a bit weak as well.

Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, astringent, or harsh. Unrefreshing.

Dr: Very drinkable, as all good beers in the style are. But it's not on par with the best Irish-brewed examples of the style, and I say that as someone who lived in Ireland for a year - not some tourist who visited for a couple weeks. It's one of the better American brewed examples of the style I've had in a long time, and I'm glad I picked up a 6 pack. I'll be enjoying this very sessionable brew a lot while I have it, but so long as Guinness Foreign Extra is on the shelf, I'll have no need to buy this again. Another pretty good offering from Brooklyn.

From 03/24/12 notes. had on tap at RFD in DC. Served in a pint glass.

a - Pours a dark brown, almost black color, with one inch of light tan head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of roasted malts, light coffee, burnt malts, bready malts, light cream.

t - Tastes of coffee, cream, roasted malts, chocolate, burnt malts, and bready malts. Taste has some more coffe and is a little better then the nose.

m - Medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Smooth and creamy and very easy to drink. Best part of the beer.

o - Overall a decent beer from Brooklyn. Nose and taste have some light coffee and a lot ofroasted malts, nothing great really jumping out in either. Very nice body but otherwise a pretty standard irish dry. Probably wouldn't seek it out again.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before June 2013. Pours almost opaque dark brown color with a 1-2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of light milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, dark bread, toast, toffee, and some light and dark fruitiness. Solid and pleasant aromas with good balance; but there is hardly any strength here, very mild. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, light coffee, dark bread, toast, toffee, floral, and light fruitiness. Lingering notes of chocolate, roast, dark bread, light toffee, and light fruitiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice and pleasant balance of dark malt flavors and subtle fruitiness; with zero cloying flavors present on the finish as expected. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a lightly creamy and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good dry stout. A little mild on flavors; but has good balance and is easy to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

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.

The beer pours a pitch black color with a 1/2" tan head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a earthy, bitter, black malt scent along with a hint of roasted character and Irish stout yeast. It's quite dry, just the way it should be. The taste is good as well. It has a bone dry, black malt flavor that goes down quick and easy and finishes bitter and earthy. It's true to style and highly quaffable. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a tasty seasonal beer. It's so smooth and sessionable.

Served on-tap at The Village Pourhouse in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours an opaque very black (almost jet black but not quite that dark) in color with some light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation at the surface and some deep garnet red highlights. The beer has a finger tall sudsy/frothy light tan head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edge of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of roasted malts with just a hint of dark malts.

T: Light to moderate flavors of roasted and dark malts with just the lightest hint of burnt malts. Very light amounts of bitterness which fade almost immediately.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Light and airy, giving a slightly thin feel and some light dryness in the finish.

O: Super easy to drink and very sessionable with well hidden alcohol - very light in the mouthfeel. Not overly complex in smell or taste but this one would be great on nitro.

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.

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!
