4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout has a khaki, medium-to-thick head and a very dark brown (almost black) appearance, with red highlights under direct sunlight. Some thin lacing is left behind. The aroma is of dark coffee and dark chocolate, brown bread crust, and sugar, and the flavor is of the same, with some cream and black cherries. There is also some acidic sourness associated with this and a bitterness hidden in the background. Mouthfeel is medium, and Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout finishes dry, refreshing, and very easy drinking. Overall, this is delicious, and I recommend it. RJT

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drought. Dark brown color with small beige foamy head, coffee aroma, hint of berries and nuts in taste, low carbonation, abrupt finish. A stout without a long finish for once!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy light brown head that faded to a thin film pretty quickly. The nose is nicely dry and roasty with lots of chocolate malt, some light yeastiness, and some dark roast coffee. The flavor is a bit on the thinner side, but I suppose that the style isnít supposed to be too in your face to start with. It is on the dry side with a light burnt malt base and a coffee laced finish. Lighter bodied with soft fizzy carbonation, fairly short finish. Not bad, though I think it would be a bit better were it on nitro instead of bottled with CO2.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
20oz draught at Underground. ABV is listed at 4.9%. Black pour, small beige head with good creaminess. Nose has dark cholesterol notes and lots of roast. Taste has big dry roasty notes, a bit of chocolate and some mild coffee bean note. Bit of a metallic and roasty tang at the end and a faint hop note. Average carbonation and body. Pretty basic, drinkable.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours pitch black with 2cm of off-white head. Soy stout aroma with vegemite yeast notes. Taste is pretty dry and bitter, not sure if I like stouts this dry, but it tastes like it said it would. Okay, wouldnít drink more than one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a small, firm light khaki head which lasts a fair while. Nose shows walnuts, macadamia, powdered chocolate and light coffee. Dry is an understatement. Probably about the driest stout Iíve had to date. Soy in the taste with light cocoa powder and bitter espresso on the after taste. Easy going. Not bad at all for the style

On the better side of average, but nothing to write home about. Dry indeed, with a nice foamy top and ruby black in color. Thick and very low ABV makes this a session brew indeed.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours brown to black and leaves a pretty small light tan head and sparse lacing.
Aroma wise itís more like a brown ale to me, somewhat sweet and caramelly, with roasty and toasty notes.
Taste includes some brown sugar, roasty and toasty flavors, caramel, some coffee and chocolate. Itís far sweeter than most dry stouts.
Body is pretty good, medium to thick, with a sweet, roasty aftertaste.
Itís tasty but if I were doing the whole thing blind I would assume it was a brown ale. Iím still happy to drink it tho.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2013 Poured bottle to glass. Big tan head. Dark cola color, red tones when held to light. Wonderful toasty/coffee/alcohol aroma. Taste is malty/bitter/sour. Thin texture. Lively carbonation. Pleasant dry finish. More fizz than Guinness and less of a creamy texture but a really solid low abv stout.
