COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The tastiest dark brew since the rollicking days of the infamous Donnybrook Fair, Donnybrook Stout offers unparalleled refreshment for an ale so deep in flavor and intrigue. Fresh, whole flower British and Slovenian hops provide the proper, earthy hint of 'the auld sod' while deep roasted barley and low alcohol keep Donnybrook Stout clean, smooth and flavorful. Served on mixture of 75% nitro and 25% CO2.

Pas de doute lorsque l’on regarde cette bière dans le noir des yeux : c’est opaque, c’est très foncé et c’est définitivement un stout. Un joli col mousseux bien épais se pose sur toute cette noirceur et laisse une belle dentelle collante. Au nez, des notes torréfiés légères et le chocolat noir sont en vedette. Une certaine amertume un peu terreuse se joint aux flaveurs chocolatées et de céréales grillées mais malheureusement, la bière est très mince voire aqueuse. Une tentative de "Session Dry Stout" un peu ratée, mais qui peut somme toute intéressante pour les gens qui ont peur des bières noires.

" fairly standard nitro dry stout - a little disappointing after several other styles had been well above average. thin bodied, with not enough dryness or smoke. chocolate and a little roasted malt present. skippable."

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Draft on nitro. Black body, nitro bubbles. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, smooth texture, nitro carbonation. Dry finish. The sweetness in this beer doesn’t pair well with the burnt roasted malts.

Taster on tap at Twenty Tap. Black color. Thin khaki head, with good retention. Thicker lace. Good milk chocolate, lightly roasty, lightly dark fruity nose... Classic, clean irish stout aroma. Maybe a bit more earthy hop bitterness, than say, a Guinness. I like it, though. Lighter body. Smooth, kind of creamy, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. A solid dry irish stout. I let robotopera have the last 1/3 of my taster. He called it "overwhelmingly mild. Like there’s nothing there; like it’s cut." I guess he’s not used to dry irish stouts.
