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!

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.
