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.

On tap at Leonís. Decent tan head gives the first couple of sips a creamy and frothy texture. Aroma has a bit of nuttiness. The flavor is a little thin and disappointing. A little bit of roasted malt and a slightly bitter finish. Otherwise not much else happening especially for a stout.

I didnít care about the ABV, but what I did care about was the fact that this reminded me of Guinness. Very much watered down if you ask me. The best part about this was the coffee/ash flavor that the beer had. A nice dark black beer with a decent head. Not too bad looking, but the beer is TOO watery. I cannot get over this fact. I think that if they are going to make this it needs to have more body to it, but I realize they are going for the Guinness-type beer. I am not a fan of Guinness ergo I am not really a fan of this type of stout. I loved the ash and coffee flavors, and the look of it, but not a favorite of mine.

This one didnít do much for me. Poured from the tap to a dark brown with medium tan head that lingered awhile and left okay lacing. Nose and taste were botrh a faint chocolate malt and the mouthfeel was fairly flat and watery. At only 3.7% abv, there was no noticeable alcohol, and the finish was short and non-descript.

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 (13426) - 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.

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 (3972) - 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 (4505) - 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.
