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.

Oakes (12167) - 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 don’t enjoy Guinness but I did enjoy this.

on nitro-pours a full creamy light brown head that laces after the cascading finished and black color. Aroma is dark malt, roasty. Taste is dark malt-chocolate/coffee, secondary acidity/bitterness from hops. Soft carbonation. Nice, not my style.

bhensonb (10692) - 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.

A: Dark brown, almost black, in color with the anticipated creamy tan head to go with it. S: Smells pretty off-putting at first--a lot of vegetal aromas. Once you get past those, there is some coffee and chicory with a good enough roasted malt character. T: The flavor is disappointing as well in that it’s highly watery. Coffee and coffee grounds, along with a touch of roast and dark chocolate, but a lot of water in there, too. M: Thin and watery with a the usual low but smooth nitro carbonation. O: Overall a real let down. The watery nature of it just ruined the beer for me.
