3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark brown colour with a fizzy-creamy beige head, good retention and minimal lacing. Aromas of hoppy grass over chocolate malts and hints of vanilla. The mouthfeel is quite thin. Watery roasted malt taste with not much dryness from the hops. Notes of mild cacao and vanilla, but really watery again. Not something to remember.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Color caoba oscuro, casi negro con espuma beige. Aromas de galleta, tostados y cereal. Cuerpo medio-bajo con un inicio que recuerda a la galleta y un final seco y tostados quizá menos intenso de los esperado. Aún así bastante bien.

NIce and quite smooth. Bitter at the same time but not so dry. Smoth and creamy in looks.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from The Lazy Dog
Pours a solid dark brown/black color with a decent sized bubbly tan head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. Aromas of bitter coffee with a hint of chocolate and a touch of earth and dark fruit. The flavor is bitter roast and light chocolate with a hint of acrid earth. Light to medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a slick sharp mouthfeel. Nice dry stout, a little bit sweeter than the standard Guinness, but a nice easy drinker.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle: Poured a dark color stout with a large brown foamy head with very limited retention. Aroma of light dry roasted malt is not as powerful as I had expected. Taste is reminiscent of dry roasted malt with light Coke notes. Body is thin and carbonation is way too strong for style and resemble more of a cola than a beer. Drainpour.

Good beer that hits all the notes of the style. Like most Dry Irish Stouts, there isn't much that sets them apart from each other. Nothing special and I'd probably just drink Guinness because of price and familiarity.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Dark cola color with a pinky width tan head. Aroma is sweet with some chocolate and light toffee notes. Taste is slightly lactic with some chocolate and a bizarre seltzer like flavor. Mouthfeel is overly spritzy for the style. Not very good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co (Glasgow) - £2.20:
Roasted malts & barely, earthy notes and some chocolate too. There is some grain and mocha with a tiny amount of hops, although I struggled to detect this initially.
Dark ruby to black, opaque with a 0.5cm, foamy head that is a medium brown before halfing in size & holding.
Roasted malts and some grain making an appearance along with some touches of spice and a little chocolate. Sadly the beer had some bland spots around the middle and seemed quite watery.
Light bodied and as I’ve mentioned it was a little bland and watery in areas, particularly for a stout. Carbonation was about medium and as the label implied, the beer is also overly dry.
Fairly disappointing and definitely the worst Brooklyn Brewery offering that I’ve tried to date. Started okay but went downhill from their with the taste in particular failing to impress. I felt this one was more of a gimmick from the brewery and not really up to the standard of the previous Brooklyn beers.
