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.

Leighton (10675) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2010
Tap at Angels and Kings. Pours dark brown, murky, with a nitrous, dense and creamy tan head. Pleasant aroma of dark, roasted malts and light cocoa. Mildly sweet flavor, with a nice, roasty character. Some bitterness further dries out what is already a dry experience. Medium bodied with soft, extremely fine carbonation. Very creamy and velvety. At 3.7%, this is a miraculously tasty beer and an absolute delight to the sessioner in all of us. It’s hard to believe this beer clocks in at just over a 3.

daknole (9042) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Live rate in the Philly airport. Nearly black, creamy nitro head. Nice dry and toasty aroma with hints of coffee and charcoal. Flavor tastes like a super ashy Guinness. Barely ok.

hopscotch (9041) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Nitro… 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.

hopdog (8848) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2007
On tap. Poured a dark and deep brown with an averaged sized tan head. aromas of roast, chocolate, and light coffee. Tastes of roast, vanilla, light coffee (iced latte), and light chocolate. Light lacing left on the glass. Thinner body.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2008
Dark black beer with a thick creamy nitro head. Aroma is very roasty. Lots of bright cocoa. Nice and roast with a kiss of acidic malts. Lean-bodied, toasty and roast. It finishes with a kiss of fruit on the back. It’s a pretty solid dry stout really.

GT2 (8352) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 8, 2009
On tap at Bilbo Baggins in Alexandria, VA. Pours a deep ruby with a one finger tan nitro head. Aroma is light and subdued but roasty, cocoa. Taste is light to medium bodied with cocoa, malted milk balls, and some chocolate covered strawberries. Sweet, refreshing flavor rather than heavy roasted, typical stouts flavors. Clean finish. Lackluster but enjoyable.

Drake (8186) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2010
Served on nitro at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a reddish brown color with a large tan head that lasts forever. Aroma of faint roasted malts and a bit of chocolate. The taste is bitter roasted malts, chocolate and a bit of smoke. Medium bodied. Fairly decent.

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Cask pint at Zeno’s Real Ale Fest. Thin tan head on a cola colored dark brown body. Thin coffee and burnt/char aromas, with heavy notes of old, soggy coffee in the nose. Texture is very weak and thin by cask beer standards, with heavily astringent coffee and chocolate and char, with more of that old, stale coffee ground note. Finishes thin, weak and wet. This is really a terrible beer to offer on cask, and it didn’t sit well in my stomach at all.
