2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle pours a black color with a tan head that dissipates very quickly. Very nice sweet multi roast the aroma. Very thin mouth feel almost like water. Not much flavor at all very disappointing. This beer was six months past it's Best By date that may have something to do with The poor rating.

Dark brown with some reddish highlights. Nice nose of some coffee. Taste of some roasted malts and coffee, but very dry / non-hopped finish which I didn't love.

Draft. Black with a light tan head. I didn’t get much aroma except a tiny bit of chocolate. Dry, dirty, bitter coffee and coco flavors. Way more carbonation than I expected.

Draught@Black Heart, London. Deeo ambery brown colour with a small creamy longlasting head. Aroma is caramel, coffee, some resin, mild berries and some nuttiness. Flavour is very similar, but the flavour doesn’t stay for very long in the aftertaste.

This beer won’t blow your socks off but you could easily drink more than a few of these. Taste is dry, palate is medium. At 4.7% this is great for tailgateing on cool college Saturday mornings. Easy drinking. Try it.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks zvikar. As Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout. Very dark brown. Aroma of licorice, coffee, a bit of roastiness and nutty notes. Flavor is a bit roasty, coffe-ish, with light acidity and a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle, stamp says BB Jun 2013. Labeled as Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout, 4.7% ABV. Oh well, it’s just a couple months after that now. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like roasted malt, coffee, and a bit of bittersweet chocolate. It tastes mostly like roasted malt and coffee, along with some bittersweet chocolate, burnt/charred malt, and a bit of cream. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s smooth and easy to drink with moderate carbonation. Picked this up as part of a mix 6-pack at Kroger earlier today, I think I might have to try this fresher when it comes out again next year. I liked it, definitely worth a try.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a deep dark brown / near-black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out very dry, lightly roasted malt and toasted bread. Flavour is very dry, with lots of dry bread and a little toasted malt. Very dry and rather lifeless body, finishing a bit metallic and dry bready. Solid attempt at a dry stout, but rather boring overall. Decent.
