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.

degbert (1301) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark, dark brown/black with a light head. Nose is wonderful -- coffee, wood, a coppery overtone (which, in this case, works). Very dry and dark on the front of the palate, but finishes clean and lighter; this is no imperial stout, rather, its true to the style. Has some substance to the palate despite its 4.7%. Magnificent.

Hangover (1087) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - APR 20, 2015
Very dark brown, near black, appearance with a nice, lasting tan head. Aroma is milk chocolate with some roasted malts and caramel notes. Nice body, creamy with good carbonation. Coffee flavor, dark roast, light chocolate and a medium bitter finish. Something about all Brooklyn Brewery beers, they have a very distinct flavor/aroma to me... kind of like an orange/metallic note towards the end. Very distinct but hard to describe. This beer is very nice, I think its pretty true to the style and done right. Very flavorful for such low abv, really enjoyed this one, pleasantly surprised.

dukeandduke (116) - Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2015
4/11/15 (Bottle) -Nice dark black pour with mild carbonation and a nice generous tan head with decent thickness. Very enjoyable aromas including roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and hazelnut. Beer tasted excellent, with the rich aromas all present and enjoyable. Nice going down, felt the carbonation. Beer not very strong, and makes a great paring with a meal or dessert. Excellent offering by Brooklyn Brewery!

obguthr (4389) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 11, 2015
Hazelnut, coffee, and cola nose. Black, thin tan head, almost no retention. Roasted malt and grain, dry. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Good roast character and appropriate dryness for the style. I prefer a creamier irish stout and this is a bit harsh.

Draft. Opaque dark brown color, beige head. Aroma of burnt espresso and nuts. Taste is dark roast coffee, dry nutty finish. Decent enough.

Dry chocolate coffee aroma. Black body with a brownish hue. Thin bubbly head. Smooth unsweetened chocolate and coffee taste with a faint hint of caramel. Light bitterness. Thin body with a dry finish.

miquelcrush (1673) - Granollers, SPAIN - APR 1, 2015
Cervesa suau per amb aroma i gust forts a torrefactes, li falta un pel de cos. Cerveza suave pero con aroma y sabor fuertes a tostados, le falta un poco de cuerpo.

Cool_Bond (1896) - Kung av l @ Facebook, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2015
Light coffee aroma and flavor. Very watery. Okay bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth for a long while. Good but a little watery. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
