4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Khyber Pass. Very dark black orange pour with a small foamy tan head. Feels like a traditional English brown ale at first the cuts quite dry halfway though. Hardly a Guinness but thankfully it does not feel like it is trying to be.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Black pour, with a medium, tan head. The aroma is light coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, and light smoke and burnt bread. Sweet up front, with some roasted bitterness and spiciness through the finish. Medium to heavy body, acerbic, and biting. Not nearly as watery and light as the ABV would suggest. Much better than a certain other unnamed Irish stout.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2013 12 oz bottle of "Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout", 4.7% alcohol, served in a Belgian snifter.
A: The beer pours very dark mahogany brown, looking near black in the glass; a deep ruby color is visible at the edges of the glass under bright light. The moderate size, tan colored head soon died down to a thin partial top coat and a durable collar around the edge of the glass, with patchy lacing left on the sides.
Rather simple aroma of sweet and roasted malts. The taste reveals some subtle but spicy hops mixed with a stronger flavor of dark roasted malts. Sweet, with hints of chocolate up front, and some coffee in the mildly bitter finish.
M: Light-bodied: about as expected but, if anything, a bit fuller. Some dryness; moderate carbonation.
O: No apparent flaws, but not very complex or interesting either.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer was decent. Dark cola colored brew with a thin, white head. Aromas of roasted coffee. Tastes of toasted/burnt grains, watery/dark coffee, and some dark chocolate. Dry and chalky finish. A bit sweeter than most dry stouts. Lingering sweetness. Not bad.
