On tap several mos. ago at House of 1000 Beers in New Kensington, PA.

Poured into a shaker pint: Solid opaque brown body under 3 fingers of glistening mocha head. Looks like mousse. Never saw a beer that looked like this. Head stands well, interesting, stays put. Not sure what's going on here.

Smells of light roast malt, light cocoa, slight fruit. Hop aroma grows, nutty.

Tastes of light roast grain, a little coffee, dry bread, very dry & surprisingly hoppy. Bitterness is strong for the style. I think part of the opacity in the appearance is suspended hop matter, which comes through in the taste. This tastes like hop sediment, really spicy & tannic.

Medium-full-bodied, creamy but sharply bitter, very dry, kind of tannic & sucks the moisture right out.

Not bad, some interesting stuff going on, not all pleasant. Can't get around thinking it actually has some hop material suspended in it.

Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance – Served a black body with a light off white head. The head faded in moderate time to give a nice level of lacing.

Smell – The smell of roasted malt and a light amount of sweet caramel. There is a light aroma of roasted coffee and nut that mix with the malty base.

Taste – The taste started out a bit on the dark roasted breadier side with some light roasted coffee notes mixed within. The roasted coffee grew a bit stronger more midway through the taste and in turn gives the brew a more bitter taste. As the taste advances to its end it bitters even more as lighter hop flavors and some cocoa come to the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is a little bit on the lighter side with the carbonation level being slightly above average. The body could use a bit of the boost to accentuating the nice roasted flavors, with possibly a nitrogen pour enhancing the overall drinking experience.

Overall – It had some nice flavors due to the lighter hop and more cocoa at the end of the taste (which did it well), but the body was a little on the low side. Overall it was a just above average dry Irish.

Pours an opaque black, with a dense 2 finger cream head that lingers indefinitely.

Roast malt dominates the aroma, with a subtle hint of caramel sweetness and coffee grounds.

Flavor is burnt roast malt, tangy acrid coffee, with a floral, perfume hop finish. Odd range of tastes. The finish is a bit sweeter than expected. Chocolate makes a weak appearance as it warms, as well as tobacco and slight smoke. Dark cherries and cough syrup emerge.

Body is slightly light, with moderate carbonation.

Overall, more flavorful in malt and hop than a guinness. Good, to me, for the style.

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

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.

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.

Had a glass at Top Hops in LES. Ah, a nicely balanced Irish stout. There's a pleasing bitter tang in the finish with smooth mocha grains up front. It's like a slightly bigger version of Beamish. The body isn't light, but it's on that side of medium, and creamy. I wouldn't mind having a few pints. Tasty stout, find it if you can.

On tap at the House of Brews in Jensen Beach.

A – Poured out black with a nice solid finger of tan head. Not much retention and spotty light lacing.

S – Coffee and roasted malts but a light smeller.

T - Roasted malts come first on the palate. Has a campfire like flavor. Light chocolate, vanilla and dark fruit in the mix. Lingering hops finish the brew with just a trace bitterness.

M – Medium bodied. Average carbonation. Creamy to start and finishes off dry.

O – This was just an average brew to me. I just didn’t get a depth of flavor I was expecting. It is not by any means bad but I would not reach for another. Certainly worth a try.

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.

A-Black with a one finger head, a little brown/red around the edges

S-Some malt, a little bit of caramel and some coffee as well.

T-Nice blend of roasted malt, tad bit of coffee and some caramel sneaks in as well.

M-Light, some carbonation, smooth, a little creamy the trypical Irish Stout mouthfeel.

O-One of the better Irish Stouts I've had, it is a style I'm not too fond of but Brooklyn seems to have made a good one.

A- a very deep brown that appears black, with a two inch mocha brown head and some lace.

S- a subtle roasted note with some black coffe and milk chocolate. A sweet malt as well.

T- just like the nose, but with more chocolate malt. This is a really really smooth stout, and the light roast notes are perfectly subtle based on the style.

O- had this one on st. Paddy's day, a perfect day for a beer like this. At 3.9%, this is a remarkably flavorful stout.
