3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 fl.oz. bottle, BB May 2014, 4.7%
Dark brown in the glass, malty roasted-dry nose. The mainpart is roasted, malty. Slightly sour. The mainpart is a bit flat. The roasted dry aroma is great, but the body is a bit thin - especially for the 4.7%. The aftertaste is a nice mixture between the stout-sourness and the dark roasted espresso-flavours. But the body remains thin. Even watery.
Highly drinkable session-stout, but for real savour, it could be much deeper in aroma. --> 12/13/10/11

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 mL bottle. Labelled Dry Irish Stout at 4.7%. Pours black with a khaki foam. Coffee, cocoa and subtle woodsiness. Slight berry notes as well. Slightly sweet offset by a decent roasted malt bite. Light to medium body with average carbonation. A nice session stout, but nothing mind blowing.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Roasty and dry stout with a slight chaulky, medicinal taste. Kind of bland.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
341 mL bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Deep brown-black with a decent light mocha head. Quite dry, roasted barley, some cardboard, a touch of grape, stark and stern. Medium body with moderate, fine effervescence. More cardboard than the nose, roasted barley, a touch of grape fruitiness, still stark and stern; dry with fair bitterness and a roasted, stark finish. Not a style I care for, even though it is authentic.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
