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.

Bottle. Dark cola color with a pinky width tan head. Aroma is sweet with some chocolate and light toffee notes. Taste is slightly lactic with some chocolate and a bizarre seltzer like flavor. Mouthfeel is overly spritzy for the style. Not very good.

355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co (Glasgow) - £2.20:
Roasted malts & barely, earthy notes and some chocolate too. There is some grain and mocha with a tiny amount of hops, although I struggled to detect this initially.
Dark ruby to black, opaque with a 0.5cm, foamy head that is a medium brown before halfing in size & holding.
Roasted malts and some grain making an appearance along with some touches of spice and a little chocolate. Sadly the beer had some bland spots around the middle and seemed quite watery.
Light bodied and as I’ve mentioned it was a little bland and watery in areas, particularly for a stout. Carbonation was about medium and as the label implied, the beer is also overly dry.

Fairly disappointing and definitely the worst Brooklyn Brewery offering that I’ve tried to date. Started okay but went downhill from their with the taste in particular failing to impress. I felt this one was more of a gimmick from the brewery and not really up to the standard of the previous Brooklyn beers.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Pretty much black in the glass. Decent sized tan head. Roasted malt, some chocolate on the nose. Dry mouthfeel. Medium body, with roasted coffee contributing some bitterness. Some ash and just a hint of plums.

Deep brown in the glass with a thin tan head. Mild roasted aroma with a slight sour note. Medium body. Fairly clean finish, roasted and coffee malt on the palate.

ARH (293) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a snifter/tulip glass. Immediately after the pour, there’s a prevalent and strong plum and sweet berry (blueberry?) aroma that floats off the beer; but it disappears quickly, replaced by muted notes of milk chocolate, a faint toffee, a chalk-ish dry note, and a light toasted bread - nothing offensive, just very muted and dull-ish. It pours a very dark brown-black body with an effervescent and light, fizzy brown head that fades quickly until just a thin ring remains around the edge, and then nothing. No lacing is left behind, just a clean glass. The taste is a medium light sweetness with a medium light bitter, well balanced, but nothing really interesting going on here. It’s a light bodied, thin textured beer with a moderate amount of prickly carbonation. The first sips give sharp, short hints of a berry sweetness, but they fade quick (disappearing altogether by mid-glass) and give way to a light sarsaparilla, cola, and plum flavor. It finishes with an ashy quality combined with a cola touch. There’s also a notable chalky, or maybe coffee grounds from the bottom of the mug, presence at the finish that carries over to the aftertaste. The aftertaste is dry, crisp, and clean leaving only a trace chalk / coffee ground and a very light milky / creamy character on the palate that doesn’t last long.

Pours black with a light brown ring. Aroma is toasted malts and vanilla. Taste is dry palate with toasted malts and a small hop bitterness to finish. Solid stout.

Beerman6686 (4167) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2014
This poured a medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of roast, dry dark chocolate. Flavor was similar, pretty dry, lightly toasty. Ok.

Decent stout. NOt great but good. Looks very nice but the palate comes off on the thin side. Worth a try.

crossovert (6927) - Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2014
355ml bottle. Immediatley pours with a darker head than most ids. Conistency is meatier, lending to less drinkability. Flavor is fruitier. Honestly this is a style that american craft breweries still have to get a grasp of. This tastes like any number of general stouts out there.
