3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 5-31-12-
Appearance – Served a black body with a light off white head. The head faded in moderate time to give a nice level of lacing.
Smell – The smell of roasted malt and a light amount of sweet caramel. There is a light aroma of roasted coffee and nut that mix with the malty base.
Taste – The taste started out a bit on the dark roasted breadier side with some light roasted coffee notes mixed within. The roasted coffee grew a bit stronger more midway through the taste and in turn gives the brew a more bitter taste. As the taste advances to its end it bitters even more as lighter hop flavors and some cocoa come to the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is a little bit on the lighter side with the carbonation level being slightly above average. The body could use a bit of the boost to accentuating the nice roasted flavors, with possibly a nitrogen pour enhancing the overall drinking experience.
Overall – It had some nice flavors due to the lighter hop and more cocoa at the end of the taste (which did it well), but the body was a little on the low side. Overall it was a just above average dry Irish.

Pours flat black with a medium and foamy beige head that disappears pretty fast. Thin sheets of lacing. Aroma of malt, coffee and some chocolate. Flavor was mostly coffee, but a touch of chocolate and roasted malts is there as well.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dry is right. This one disappears quickly. Aroma is faint of charcoaled malt. Not much depth, but a pleasant and drinkable stout. Thin to medium body that finishes quick.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice contrast to all the "craft" stouts I’ve been having lately - a beer that tries to be drinkable, rather than to be a statement. nice mild ashy floral aroma, light but round in the mouth, with a chalky and earthy finish, moderately roasty. unfortunately bad head retention lets it down. another very solid if unexciting beer from brooklyn.

I am a big fan of Brooklyn beers and while this one is a solid beer, its also forgettable and un remarkable, a good solid stout overall
