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.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Draft. Poured nearly black with a thick, fine-bubbled head. Beautiful cascading carbonation. Love the low ABV. Roasted malt, quite dry, mildly bitter and ... celery. Kept trying to come up with another way to describe it. But there it was. I.e., an odd vegetal note. Other than that, quite nice. Easy drinking.

radio_nowhere (795) - Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Draft at Victory brewpub. Served in a English pint glass, deep dark brown with tan nitro head. Aroma of dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, light caramel note and some nuttiness. Taste was lighter then the aroma notes emphasizing the roastiness with a smoke note. Medium body, low carbonation(mostly nitro), creamy, thin, dry, rich with light roast finish. Kind of like a lighter Guinness, I thought it was nice easy drinking.

Clear black pour with a big creamy light beige head. Aroma has a roasty nuttiness with a faint creaminess under all of it. Flavor is clean and light, featuring notes of roasty dark malts, a little nuttiness, a little smoke, and some peat. A Light and quaffable well-made stout.
