"Brooklyn Stout" draft at dinner in December 2023. The beer I had was very good. The body was black with a sizeable deep tan head. The flavor was enticing, with an especially nice complex bitter hop character. '''''

"Best by May 2014"; drank 7/4/14 @ the Yarchives...shit, I'm late!

Brown/black hue; purple 'round the edges.

Creamy oats & fresh tobacco nose.

Creamy medium mouthfeel.

Creamy oats & mild metal up front; slight red wine as it warms.

Mild & pleasant; not bold enough for me, but that's a style issue.

Brooklyn Irish Dry. Grabbed for $1.59 a single at my local meijer. Needed something to quell the IPA and Pils focus of the night. Let's get it.

Look - Black though penetrable by the light. Finger of tan head that settles to a ring amongst the glass. Carbonation is unreadable.

Smell - Used black coffee grounds with a mild hop profile.

Taste - Used coffee grounds like to really dominate. Medium to black coffee with a touch of cream. Water on the tail end.

Feel - Moderate though watery if that makes any sense at all. High carbonation and swallows a touch biting.

Overall - Not a style that I've ever been huge on. Simply grabbed this to cut the mold for a night of likely hop forward beers. Got what I expected. Better than a Guinness but that isn't saying a whole lot. Quaffable without a doubt and I can't complain much.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a black color with a one white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light speckled lacing clinging around the glass. The smell had a dry roasty coffee bean which came across slightly espresso - like. Dark chocolate came through in a light sort of way. The taste was mainly dry and roasty with the same aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation was fairly subdued but still good for its style. Overall, this was a pretty good Irish Dry Stout that I would have again.

AROMA: Medium Barley.
LOOK: Dark Black, a little thin looking, little head.
TASTE: barley. Coffee. Some sourness (cherry?). Some ash.
FEEL: light. thin, flat, A Chugger.
Somewhat Guiness-like without the "Creamy". Not bad, but very run of the mill.

I dunno.
Maybe I'm being influenced by the "Stout" on the title.
Poured looking nice-- not exceptional but nice. Welled up with a nice looking head.
Flavor-- eh. Once again maybe it's the specific style that's throwing me but this beer seemed "small"-- flavor, mouthfeel, etc. Thing is I didn't think it was even a good thirst quencher as it has stout like elements but also "lite beer" elements as well. Does have a "dry" notes in the flavor but in all needs "more" and maybe "more of everything".
I'll stick with the Black Chocolate Stout.

Pours to a frothy head that dies to a thin ring but does try to lace. Aroma is sweet, malty and very roasty. Flavor mirrors the smell and finishes with a slightly creamy, coffee like character. Mouthfeel is medium-full and satisfying. Well done Brooklyn!
