3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Black pour, with a medium, tan head. The aroma is light coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, and light smoke and burnt bread. Sweet up front, with some roasted bitterness and spiciness through the finish. Medium to heavy body, acerbic, and biting. Not nearly as watery and light as the ABV would suggest. Much better than a certain other unnamed Irish stout.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a dark brown with hints of ruby and small light tan head. Aroma is on the understated side with roasty coffee, nuts and caramel. Flavour is roasted grains, coffee, nuttiness and a little caramel sweetness. Dry finish. Decent, but nothing really stands out.
