Deep Deep brown color but with relatively good clarity. Tan tinged half finger of head. Nose consists of lots of coffee, roasted barley, some espresso, touches of asphalt.

A really nice session stout actually. Pretty bold on the roasty flavor on the back end but pretty brisk as well. Some sweeter grains up front followed by a huge explosion of roasted grains, coffee flavor, bitter black chocolate. The beer delivers with a nice super dry yet balanced finish and a lingering roastiness. Not bitter, but balanced very nicely. Medium bodied, burnt toast ends and toasted hearty breads. Great flavor and amazing drinkability.

Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout has a khaki, medium-to-thick head and a very dark brown (almost black) appearance, with red highlights under direct sunlight. Some thin lacing is left behind. The aroma is of dark coffee and dark chocolate, brown bread crust, and sugar, and the flavor is of the same, with some cream and black cherries. There is also some acidic sourness associated with this and a bitterness hidden in the background. Mouthfeel is medium, and Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout finishes dry, refreshing, and very easy drinking. Overall, this is delicious, and think it's one to try.

Poured out a deep clear brown with about 1/2 finger of tan head. There is minimal retention but a smattering of lacing. The aroma is dark roasted malt with a nice hint of earthy hops. The taste follows closely with the aroma with the hops coming in on the finish. The mouthfeel is to style, with a thinner quality. Overall, this is a well-executed Irish stout.

A: Poured from the growler into a Sam Smith's nonic on Saint Patrick's Day, 2012 - and wondering whether that's a fax pas given the Irish/British history. . . . Anyway, on the pour it appears brown, but once it settles into the glass it looks to be black with brownish-mahogany edges. Small khaki-colored head on top.

S: Roasty, with earthy and leafy hops.

T: Nice - a lot of flavor for a low-alcohol beer. Roasty is the word that keeps coming to mind. It's almost porter-like in flavor at times, with a hint of chocolate malt, roasted barley, charcoal and a very dry finish.

M: Light to medium in heft, carbonation is modest. Overall feel is good.

O: Nicely done. Full-flavored, dry. Meets the style guidelines just about perfectly.
