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.

jercraigs (8006) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2014
2014-03-07. Mahogany tinged black body with a small tan head. 3+ Aroma is very lightly fruity mild dry roast. Flavour is pleasant, lightly dry roasty character, dark malt. Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Decent, serviceable take on the style. Bottle from the LCBO, Shared by Wilco

Underdogs88 (119) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Coffee aroma with chocolate roast accents. Light earthy hop aroma. Jet black appearance with a tan head with decent head retention. A sharp acrid roast dominates the flavor. Moderate levels of fruity esters present. Medium hop bitterness. Slightly acidic. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Roasted grain astringency lingers on the end. Overall, it's a little too acrid for my tastes and I'd prefer more creaminess. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light ash and coffee malt aroma. Dark black with moderate tan head. Lightly sweet chocolate-coffee malt and ash flavor. Body a bit light. Decent.

I'm normally an IPA or Red Ale guy but this is on the light end of stouts. Very good taste not too toasty. Lingers well on the palette. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ciaranc (949) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 7, 2014
355 ml bottle from against the grain. Deep brown, lovely foamy tan head. Subtle roast malt, coffee notes in the aroma. Flavour is a sharp roast note up front, mellowing to a fairly bland dry middle. Quite fizzy. Short malty, dry finish. Decent example of the style.

Erzengel (3406) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 5, 2014
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

shaynsawchuk (536) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
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.

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

Pours black. Smells of malts and light coffee. Taste is mildly sweet with malts and hints of coffee.

probstblueribbon (3008) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2014
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.
