Bottle: Poured a dark color stout with a large brown foamy head with very limited retention. Aroma of light dry roasted malt is not as powerful as I had expected. Taste is reminiscent of dry roasted malt with light Coke notes. Body is thin and carbonation is way too strong for style and resemble more of a cola than a beer. Drainpour.

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.

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.

A - Pours dark with a slight head that dissipates soon after.

S- Strong chocolate, roasty notes

T - The carbonation took some of the taste away for me. Seems pretty bland compared to the smell, although I do get some slight chocolaty, roasty flavors coming through.

M - This feels like it has more carbonation than most dry stouts I've tried. Other than that, it has a typical light, airy feel and is easy to drink.

Another beer to celebrate St Patrick's day. This would poured someone lighter and easier than most Irish Stouts. I could not detect really anything in the nose. The first sip, all I felt was the large amount of carbonation.. That sort took away the taste itself.

This one is dry as advertised.. A very light impression of a Irish Stout.

Still thinking about all the carbonation.

Too thin and astringent for a stout

Thin, watery, and not a nice finish. This beer is probably the most disappointing of the Brooklyn beers I've ever tasted. This is not near as good as Guinness domestic (which itself is overrated).
If you want a good stout, look elsewhere. The Brooklyn dark chocolate stout is excellent. Albeit in a different category, there is no reason this brewer cannot make a really first class dry stout.
