COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn Dry Stout is a bold, reddish-black Irish-style stout, rich in color but low in alcohol and very drinkable. The dark colors results from brewing with roasted malts, lending Brooklyn Dry Stout a chocolate/coffee-like flavor with a bit of an espresso bite. The finish is dry and crisp and invites another pint.

On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a deep dark brown / near-black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out very dry, lightly roasted malt and toasted bread. Flavour is very dry, with lots of dry bread and a little toasted malt. Very dry and rather lifeless body, finishing a bit metallic and dry bready. Solid attempt at a dry stout, but rather boring overall. Decent.

Appearance: near black, with one finger of creamy, thick milk chocolate-colored head and a suggestion of lacing. Aroma: roasty, with prominent chocolate, coffee, and black bread notes over some vanilla and cream--smells awesome. Taste: light bittersweet chocolate, a bit of roast coffee beans, some chalk, and a bit of crème fraiche to round it out. Finish: soft-bodied and light, verging on watery at the very end, with quickly fading and dryly bitter and roasty notes. Notes: I’m starting to think that dry stouts are my favorite stouts. This was a decent example. Pretty balanced between roast and bittersweet; palate was just a hint too light. I think the Schlafly Irish Stout is still the best American take on the style. My bottle stated 4.7 abv, not 3.9.

stantheman (675) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2013
On tap at Alibi Room in Gastown in Vancouver. Very, very dark, with a lovely tan head. Malt on the nose, with malt and chocolate in the mouth. I quite like it.

Side note here. Very unusual to find a stout with a lower alcohol content than Guinness. As one who’s more devoted to taste than to drunkeness, I find it quite welcome. Lite beer, but with a rich taste! Yes!

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2013 Black with some red hues, small beige head. Smell is malty with some coffee. Taste is malty, dry and crisp. Pretty easy drinking stout due to the low ABV.

It is a good beer, but does not show anything special. Coffee taste tendence, light biterness and balanced.

12oz bottle in an English pint. Pours very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of light roasted malts, a little bitterness, and some dough. Flavor the same with some off-notes. Average texture. A decent beer.

beerandbeyond (706) - ISRAEL - JUN 24, 2013
12oz bottle (4.7% ABV) poured into a tumbler glass. Clear dark brown with a decent dark tanned head. Pleasant dark chocolate aroma, with medium roastiness and some grassy hops. Coffee flavors, dark malts, slightly acidic, somewhat astringent, dry and quite bitter. Light-med body, easy to drink and overall OK.

Aroma: Rich chocolate and coffee aromas with hints of toasted malts. Appearance: Inky black with minimal head. Taste: Medium sweetness all the way through with a hint of bitterness at the end. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, long finish. Overall: I’m impressed, but not completely blown away. This is a nice stout, with a solid chocolatey flavor and a long, dry finish. I would certainly stock up on this the next time it’s available.
