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.

NikkTwist (1387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Nirtro draft at Khyber Pass. Pours black (actually a very, very dark red when held up to a bright light) with a tight foamy head that leaves some runny lace. Taste is clearly meant to mimic a Guinness. Smooth, due to the nitrogen, but not as full as the classic Irish dry stout. Some dry charcoal notes to combat the otherwise semi-sweet chocolate malt. Decent, but feels like the dark ghost of a better beer.

Tap. Nice smooth palate courtesy of the nitro. Thin body. Flavor of chocolate malts and rich dirt.

DiarmaidBHK (3161) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Draft at Victory beer hall. Pours black , takes forever to settle, with a quarter inch of khaki foam. Faint roasted malt note on the nose. The roasted notes ate fairly prominent on the tongue. Wish the finish was dryer. Solid exame of style.

Pours black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is nice and roasty with notes of chocolate. Flavor has some bakers chocolate and mild burnt notes...good roastiness. Mothfeel is medium and the finish is roasty/chocolatey.

This is a remarkably light stout, which surprised me. Hints of sweetness to it. Thick light colored head to t.

joebudzjoe (668) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Draft @ Birdsall House, Peekskill, NY. Typical dry stout, not much different than a Guinness. Mostly a roasted flavor that pairs well with steak...on its own, this beer even has a dried meat note. Not bad.

sloshgator (347) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Very nice appearance look you would expect from a stout but mild and without character. No aroma to speak of and none of the chocolate or coffee flavors that make this style special.

Roast, muted chocolate, smooth and sessionable. Much better once it warms a little.
