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.

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

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.

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.

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 27, 2012
Nitro at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours a 2 layer 4 finger head. The dark tan bottom coalesces into a creamy tan beige top. Can almost write in it. Aroma is pretty much like Guinness with a bit more chocolate than G. Med minus body. Flavor mostly of dark malt - burnt, and a little ashy/gritty. A little dark chocolate liners into the finish. Which is a bit more bitter than sweet. With time chocolate seems stronger. Pretty nice take on a stout.

On nitro tap at Tap and Mallet. Dark black body with a large creamy tan head with a cascading effect due to the nitro. Roast and light chocolate aroma. Dry roast and light chocolate flavor. Light body with moderate carbonation.

pete4999 (992) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 14, 2012
On tap at the Swannie House in Buffalo, NY. Nitro tap. Poured a deep brown/black with standard thick nitro head. Taste was really just kinda average, nothing really crazy about it....sweet chocolate and the like. Alright overall.

Draft at bloke n bird. Pours black with brown head. Guiness type aroma and taste. Couldnt distinguish between them a whole lot. Satisfying beer overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Solid Irish style stout. Jet black, creamy nitro head after the beautiful tumbling out-gassing. Dark roasted malt and some coffee. Nose pretty flat but not offensive.

Tap, Kooper's Tavern, Baltimore, MD. Appearance: like Guiness, dark ruby brown with very creamy cascading head. Aroma: light roasty chocolate malts. Taste: roasted malt water pretty much like Guiness with tad more flavor. Mouthfeel: thin but creamy, like a Guiness. Overall: have I said "like a Guiness"? That's pretty much it with a little bit more flavor at least than canned nitro (haven't rated a draft yet...). Just kind of boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
