Not enough alcohol - looks like it wants to be a good beer, but just feels empty!

Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout brewed by Brooklyn Brewery, with an ABV of 4.70% This brew pours out a deep brown color with a nice light brown head. It has the look of cola, not saying that is a bad thing. The smell is rich with grains and toasted malts. You also pick up some hops in the smell of this brew. This a real nice full bodied brew. The taste of Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout is , full of flavors, but it is smooth. You pick up on the toasted malts and grains in this brew. There is a lot going on in Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout, but it has a nice balance to it. There is nothing overpowering about this brew. The mouthfeel is bold, smooth and refrishing. Brooklyn Brewery did a nice job with this brew, I would buy this brew again. Overall I'm giving Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout a 4 out 5.

4/11/15 (Bottle) -Nice dark black pour with mild carbonation and a nice generous tan head with decent thickness. Very enjoyable aromas including roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and hazelnut. Beer tasted excellent, with the rich aromas all present and enjoyable. Nice going down, felt the carbonation. Beer not very strong, and makes a great paring with a meal or dessert. Excellent offering by Brooklyn Brewery!

12 oz bottle (stamped "BB MAY 2015") poured into a Brooklyn Brewery nonic pint glass. Deep, dark brown with a tall airy, frothy white head. Foam recedes quickly with little lace. Softly roasted malt on the nose with caramel, minerals and earthy hops. More roasted grain flavor, chocolate and caramel sweetness. Light to medium body with light carbonation. Mild and drinkable.

12oz bottle served in pint glass. Beer is perfectly pitch black in color but forms little head. Mild, roasty-malt aroma. Flavor, too, is mild, i.e., sessionable, but pervasive with layers of chocolaty roasted barley. Bitterness is tightly controlled and just serves to make this stout finely balanced. Finish is dry but not quite crisp.

Carbonation isn't out of control, but makes its presence felt. Not too bad, but I think this beer would do a lot better on cask, or at least Nitro.
