Purchased at the LCBO served at 8deg C in a tulip glass

M- Not so good. Dry and tart. Not stout material at all

O- Not so good. This rating is higher than I should give.

Food Pairing

This unusual beer would go well with... grilled cheese sandwiches

Enjoy

Very dark pour but with a very light head. The smell was mostly of sweet malt and a little bit of floral notes on the end. The taste was a lot of heavy caramel flavor with the floral hops cutting the end for a clean refreshing finish. The biggest problem I had with the beer is that it was very thin for a stout. Overall I thought it was an interesting take on stouts and thought it was worth the try.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Serving Type: 12oz bottle in a pint glass.

Appearance: This pours a dark brown, with little foam.

Smell: Maybe a slightly roasted aroma, but nothing much to speak of.

Taste: Roasty, nutty, bitter. More full flavored than a typical Irish stout. Very good.

Mouthfeel: Very light, medium-high carbonation. Goes down easy as expected.

Overall: I am a big fan of Irish stouts. This is a great American, non-nitro take on the style. Relatively straightforward but still very rewarding.

2.54/5  rDev -28.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Pours an opaque black with a fizzy khaki mousse that disappears within seconds.

S: Very neutral on the nose-subtle scents of roasted grain, cream, coffee, and leather are barely noticeable even after the beer starts to warm.

T: Fleeting impressions of coffee, cocoa, vanilla bean, leather, caramel, heavy cream, and roasted grain are overpowered by a chalkiness that is very much out of place in a beer of this style. The finish is laden with a harsh minerality which renders the subtle notes of roasted grain and coffee barely perceptible.

M: Fairly full in body and typically dry. Carbonation is intense and prickly for the style. If it were toned down just a bit, this would be spot on in terms of texture.

O: I really hope this is a bad bottle because very little about this beer reminds me of some of the better Irish dry stouts on the market. I tend to be a fan of Brooklyn Brewery, but some of their recent products concern me. This one is a real bummer, doing little to assuage my fears that the quality of the brewery's output has been slipping over the past couple of years.
