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.

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.

On tap at Tap East. Clear dark red brown beer, Decent pale tan head. Smooth palate with fine stinging carbonation. Mild lacto chocolate malt. Nice sharp generic candy fruits with strawberry most noticeable. Subtle esters and chocolate underneath. Finishes very minerally and sharp with some citric hop coming through. Minerally aftertaste. Strewth! Wasn’t expecting this level of complexity from a modest little 4.2% Irish Stout!

hopscotch (9387) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2012
Draft… Pitch black ale with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The bouquet is a gathering of deeply roasted coffee, dark chocolate and rumors of charcoal and industrial smoke. Light to medium-bodied with stinging carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced, but mainly mundane and not as burnt/carbonic as most dry stouts. Short, crisp, mostly clean finish. Not much going on here, but this is a nice, refreshing session ale.

Yes, coffee but very basic beer otherwise. LCBO for St. Paddy’s Day. So-so drinkability. Fast dissipating head.
