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.

Spab (2143) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2014
355 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a dark brown with hints of ruby and small light tan head. Aroma is on the understated side with roasty coffee, nuts and caramel. Flavour is roasted grains, coffee, nuttiness and a little caramel sweetness. Dry finish. Decent, but nothing really stands out.

TheJester (1728) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
355 mL bottle. Right colour but not much head. Fairly mild aroma and actually a little sweet-smelling. The flavour is a little sweet as we’ll; this really doesn’t strike me as a dry stout. Not that it’s a bad beer; pretty good depth of flavour for the abv. Some cola, a little caramel, a touch of roast. It’s not big by any means, but it’s a nice session stout.

auerbrau (3126) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 14, 2014
On tap at Mew’s Tavern - Wakefield, RI. This is about as close to mineral water as I’ve had in a commercial beer. Granted, it is 3.9%, but the body is very shallow. There are some roast hints around the corners and a bit of sugar, but I focus on a sparkling water effervescence and refreshing quality. I would think that for the weight and the style, a little more flavor could be injected.

lb4lb (2224) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Pours black. Smell is faint roasty malt. Taste is dry and thinnish with chalky coffee malt flavor. Definitely dry. Thin body and prickly carbonation. Decent dry stout.

njbfr (113) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Pours with a decent sized head. Quickly dissipates though. Minimal lacing. Aroma is slight with hints of chocolate. Taste is kind of bland which is to be expected from a dry stout. Aftertaste is mostly toasted malt. Very drinkable.

12 ounce bottle pours a black color with a tan head that dissipates very quickly. Very nice sweet multi roast the aroma. Very thin mouth feel almost like water. Not much flavor at all very disappointing. This beer was six months past it's Best By date that may have something to do with The poor rating. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown with some reddish highlights. Nice nose of some coffee. Taste of some roasted malts and coffee, but very dry / non-hopped finish which I didn't love. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
