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.

GTAEgeek (1053) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2013
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.

12oz bottle. Pour dark. Aroma of burnt, charred grains. A touch of chocolate. Flavor of burnt dark chocolate, charred barley malts add coffee-like flavors. Thin finish. (4025)

Hanoi (295) - - APR 9, 2014
Nose is roast, slight coffee, a little cherry. Taste is light coffee, chocolate, a little vanilla, slight sweet tone. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. It’s almost porter like in it’s light sweetness. Overall to thin, too light.

Nate (3549) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2014
On tap at Piper’s. Carbonic nutty cocoa notes, bit of lactose. Dark black opaque with thin creamy tan lacing head. Medium-light body with heavy carbonation. Dry start with a little hop bitterness. Some cocoa, roasted barley, and a bit of carbonic tang. A little watery at the finish but nice.

stravale (1883) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - APR 6, 2014
Bottle from Dicey Reillys, Ballyshannon [040414]
Pitch black, tan bubbly head, some lacing
Aroma of soft roasted malts, dark malts, slight dark toffee malts, dark sweet chocolate
Taste of sweet dark malts that are quite nice in this, very soft roast, slight dark toffee
Palate - medium carb and body, bit too fizzy, quite smooth, fairly sweet, touch of bitter roast. Finish - not dry tbh, soft sweet dark malt chocolate linger
Overall - Didn’t seem dry to me and it’s nothing like the usual dry stouts like Guinness. Quite a pleasant stout,

Metalchopz (2117) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
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.

Torrefacto (371) - SPAIN - APR 3, 2014
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.

Nekronos (3594) - Xalapa, MEXICO - MAR 30, 2014
NIce and quite smooth. Bitter at the same time but not so dry. Smoth and creamy in looks.

johnnnniee (2033) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 28, 2014
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.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
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.
