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.

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!

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark brown, very minimal tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt and some caramel. Taste is quite similar, Roast malts, coffee and chocolate. A bit of a thin body for a stout but nevertheless a nice drinkable beer.

RichardGretton (4221) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle. Blackish beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is lightly roasted, and the flavour is bitter and roasted with some coffeness about it. Overall a fairly average bitter stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ContemplateBeer (1496) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Aroma: Dark chocolate mingles with creme brulee and a hint of espresso. Appearance: Pitch black pour with a foamy mocha head that settles into a slim ring. Flavor: Leaner than the nose suggests; creme brulee and espresso are lighter and sit atop the lingering chocolate presence, which endures to the finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Very well made; a pleasant surprise at the end of June.

rollinsr (366) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUN 20, 2014
Pours a dark buckeye brown with virtually no head. Aroma is dark and smoky malts with some chocolate and java. The flavor accentuates the dark roasted malts. The beer maintains the coffee flavor throughout but becomes more nutty towards the end. As advertised, the finish is incredibly smooth. A highly enjoyable session stout.

Transfer from BA review on 5-31-12- Appearance – Served a black body with a light off white head. The head faded in moderate time to give a nice level of lacing. Smell – The smell of roasted malt and a light amount of sweet caramel. There is a light aroma of roasted coffee and nut that mix with the malty base. Taste – The taste started out a bit on the dark roasted breadier side with some light roasted coffee notes mixed within. The roasted coffee grew a bit stronger more midway through the taste and in turn gives the brew a more bitter taste. As the taste advances to its end it bitters even more as lighter hop flavors and some cocoa come to the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is a little bit on the lighter side with the carbonation level being slightly above average. The body could use a bit of the boost to accentuating the nice roasted flavors, with possibly a nitrogen pour enhancing the overall drinking experience. Overall – It had some nice flavors due to the lighter hop and more cocoa at the end of the taste (which did it well), but the body was a little on the low side. Overall it was a just above average dry Irish.

Beerathon (1075) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Deep brown with slight reddish hue and thin tan head. Smells of weak coffee, sweet and roasted malts. Not as dry as I was hoping for, but a nice bitter coffee finish.
