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.

Nitro at Leonís Full Service served in a Donnybrook pint glass. Pours dark, dark chocolate brown with a massive creamy nitro head that lingers for the duration and leaves good lacing. Itís like a lighter version of Guinness. The aroma is very sedate on this one with some dark chocolate malts and little else. The taste is a slight step up from the aroma with a more noticeable chocolate presence and more sweetness overall. The finish is dry and roasty. The mouthfeel is thin and slightly watery with soft carbonation. This is a decent dry stout but itís nothing to write home about.

Oakes (12361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2009
Near black. Thin head. Lots of coffee on the nose, like good drip stuff. Light palate has some toast and hulled grains. This hits an authentic Irish spot, with light chocolate, little roast. Creamy body without nitrogen - always appreciated. Well, I donít enjoy Guinness but I did enjoy this.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Draught @ The Distillery, Savannah. Rich black with thick tan head. Abundant coffee, asphalt and coffee aromas. Finishes thin with slight acidity. Unripe and does not deliver on the aroma or appearance. Thin and underdeveloped.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2009
Pours opaque and black with a nice thick white head. Coffee aroma. Not a lot of flavor but whatís their has a hint of coffee. Too thin for me. Essentially a Guinness clone.

Cybercat (3278) - Georgia, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Comes out of the tap a nearly opaque reddish sable with a thick, fairly persistent tan head. Aroma is richly of roast coffee and has just a hint of cinnamon. Flavor is surprisingly spicy and has a strong hoppy component, rather different from other stouts I have tasted. It has firm coffee and smoke components as well, plus a tiny metallic tinge - but the last may come from this particular batch. Texture is tingly and sharp, and just a teeny bit thin.

ChainGangGuy (4364) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Appearance: Black, creamy-looking body with an off-white and equally creamy-looking head. Leaves a wall of lacing along the glass on the way down. Smell: Meek aroma of washed out roasted grains with ultra minor hints of chocolate. Taste: Dry, mildly flavored roasted malt taste with an almost imperceptible dark caramel and chocolate sweetness. Faint roasty bitterness. Finishes dry and roasty. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Smooth carbonation. The nitro tap offers a boost in creaminess, but, man, itís still very, very thin. Drinkability: The drinkability is fine from a low ABV, session-type standpoint, but being so devoid of flavor, I doubt itíd hold my interest beyond the one pint.

Beerman6686 (4302) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2009
This poured bascially an opaque black color with a big beige head. Aroma was very minimal, small hints of rostead coffee and some weak chocolate. Flavor was much the same, really watery and dry dry stout. Hardly anything going on here at all. Reminds me way too much like guinness

obxdude10 (2037) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2009
I really loved this stout! There is just something about a light, but very flavorful dark, dry stout that offers such a big aroma and a bountiful flavor. This stout poured a pitch-black color with a very generous white head. The aroma featured chocoalte, light hops and cream. The body was wonderfully smooth and delicious, with notes of milk chocolate, cream, vanilla and just a touch of light hoppiness. This stout left a cascading line of lacing around the glass. Itís almost about time that Victory made a stout like this. Several other brewers have done so, and itís great to see that Victory has followed suit, and in such a compelling and delicious fashion.

unclemattie (4166) - Georgia, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Tap@ TacoMac, crabapple. Nitro pour! Dark black, silky light tan heavy cream floating over the darkness. Roasted grain aroma, very light. Flavor is creamy textured, dry cereal, chalky. Finishes with a familiar Victory yeast fruitiness. Very dry on the palate. One of the best Dry Stouts on nitro you can get. Convert any Guiness drinker.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2009
NitroÖ Almost black with a mid-sized, creamy, lightly tanned head that never dissipates. When I held it up to light I saw ruby sparkles around the edges of the glass. Dark chocolate and espresso aroma with lesser notes of smoke and charcoal. Light to medium-bodied and a touch creamy with only a whisper of carbonation. Acrid, burnt, lightly tangy flavor - a touch thin. Bland, dry finish.
