Purchased at the LCBO served at 8deg C in a tulip glass
A- Very good. Opens well and pours dark
S- Pretty good. Malty that's for sure. Caramel
T- Not so good. Dry yes flavor no. Sorry but this one is a dud
M- Not so good. Dry and tart. Not stout material at all
O- Not so good. This rating is higher than I should give.
This unusual beer would go well with... grilled cheese sandwiches

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.

3.69/5 rDev +3.7%
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.

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.
