3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2013 12oz bottle into English pint glass. Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Taste is the aroma with more semi-sweet chocolate note, ashy smoke, a little metallic and a dry bitter earthy hop finish. Light body, creamy, crisp, tart and a little astringent. Overall a pretty good dry stout.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle of "Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout", 4.7% alcohol, served in a Belgian snifter.
A: The beer pours very dark mahogany brown, looking near black in the glass; a deep ruby color is visible at the edges of the glass under bright light. The moderate size, tan colored head soon died down to a thin partial top coat and a durable collar around the edge of the glass, with patchy lacing left on the sides.
Rather simple aroma of sweet and roasted malts. The taste reveals some subtle but spicy hops mixed with a stronger flavor of dark roasted malts. Sweet, with hints of chocolate up front, and some coffee in the mildly bitter finish.
M: Light-bodied: about as expected but, if anything, a bitter fuller. Some dryness; moderate carbonation.
O: No apparent flaws, but not very complex aroma or interesting either.

This beer was decent. Dark cola colored brew with a thin, white head. Aromas of roasted coffee. Tastes of toasted/burnt grains, watery/dark coffee, and some dark chocolate. Dry and chalky finish. A bit sweeter than most dry stouts. Lingering sweetness. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Black pour with a slight off-white head. Aroma is sweet. Flavor is smooth with some roasted malts, chocolate, and caramel. Light on the coffee. It too light on the alcohol and should be a little more robust.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout has a khaki, medium-to-thick head and a very dark brown (almost black) appearance, with red highlights under direct sunlight. Some thin lacing is left behind. The aroma is of dark coffee and dark chocolate, brown bread crust, and sugar, and the flavor is of the same, with some cream and black cherries. There is also some acidic sourness associated with this and a bitterness hidden in the background. Mouthfeel is medium, and Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout finishes dry, refreshing, and very easy drinking. Overall, this is delicious, and I recommend it. RJT

Drought. Dark brown color with small beige foamy head, coffee aroma, hint of berries and nuts in taste, low carbonation, abrupt finish. A stout without a long finish for once!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy light brown head that faded to a thin film pretty quickly. The nose is nicely dry and roasty with lots of chocolate malt, some light yeastiness, and some dark roast coffee. The flavor is a bit on the thinner side, but I suppose that the style isn’t supposed to be too in your face to start with. It is on the dry side with a light burnt malt base and a coffee laced finish. Lighter bodied with soft fizzy carbonation, fairly short finish. Not bad, though I think it would be a bit better were it on nitro instead of bottled with CO2.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
20oz draught at Underground. ABV is listed at 4.9%. Black pour, small beige head with good creaminess. Nose has dark cholesterol notes and lots of roast. Taste has big dry roasty notes, a bit of chocolate and some mild coffee bean note. Bit of a metallic and roasty tang at the end and a faint hop note. Average carbonation and body. Pretty basic, drinkable.
