Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout

All the way from the hipster mecca of Brooklyn, New York comes Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout. This NYC brew has Irish leanings, featuring both orange and green elements on the label of the 355mL bottle. It's built by the Brooklyn Brewery and contains a low-level 4.7% alcohol. It's a nice looking ale, coloured like black coffee and topped with a quaint little tan head--though I was a tad disappointed by the head's staying power. Its aroma is sweet, malty, and well roasted, with a twist of mocha, too. The sweetness in the nose had me expecting sweetness on my tongue. However, what I found was a faint gust of molasses early on, and other than that, sweetness was minimal. The flavour was very mild for a stout--grainy and then a bit bitter toward the back end. Roasted malts were the predominant taste trend.

Not a bad little stout, it was very easy drinking, mellow, and more. It was nice, but not exciting.

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
