Aroma: Rich chocolate and coffee aromas with hints of toasted malts.
Appearance: Inky black with minimal head.
Taste: Medium sweetness all the way through with a hint of bitterness at the end.
Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, long finish.
Overall: I’m impressed, but not completely blown away. This is a nice stout, with a solid chocolatey flavor and a long, dry finish. I would certainly stock up on this the next time it’s available. PhillyBeer2112 (2818) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2001
Very much like Guinness, but a bit sweeter, fuller flavor and generally better all around. Its not nitro’d, which really helps it have a kick. karl (158) - Glendale, New York, USA - APR 15, 2001mjpeterson812 (61) - Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2013 Poured bottle to glass. Big tan head. Dark cola color, red tones when held to light. Wonderful toasty/coffee/alcohol aroma. Taste is malty/bitter/sour. Thin texture. Lively carbonation. Pleasant dry finish. More fizz than Guinness and less of a creamy texture but a really solid low abv stout. Taboada (1297) - Compostela (Galiza), - MAR 16, 2015
Tasted from the tap on the Barcelona Beer Fest (14/03/2015). Opaque dark colour with a medium creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Taste is well balanced between coffee and cacao. Dry finish with presence of malts. Next one please!

A very Guinness-like stout, but creamier, and without the sour finish. This was a good-looking, frothy-headed beer, with subtle flavors of chocolate and coffee. Dogbrick (12921) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2006
On draught at Winking Lizard in Columbus. Pours flat black with a medium and foamy beige head that disappears pretty fast. Thin sheets of lacing. Aroma of malt, coffee and some chocolate. Fairly rich mouthfeel and nicely creamy, with coffee, bittersweet chocolate and hops flavor. A bit of roasted malt in the background as well. The finish is smooth and creamy and has a lingering coffee bitterness. Examples like this or GLBC Wolfhound remind me that this style doesn’t have to be boring. Well done. ronaldtheriot (1919) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAY 5, 2013
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 JMonJMon1 (6) - Syracuse, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2014 does not count
I'm normally an IPA or Red Ale guy but this is on the light end of stouts. Very good taste not too toasty. Lingers well on the palette.

More Irish than hurling.
