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.

jcwattsrugger (12011) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2007
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.

Dogbrick (11067) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Sample at World Of Beer. Pours brownish-black with a medium tan head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted and a bit of chocolate. Light body with a sweet roast character and notes of chocolate malt and grain. The finish is short with a malt aftertaste. Pretty forgettable beer all in all.

crossovert (10906) - Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2016
Draft. Listed at 3.6% This one is a drushable dry stout, far more robust than guiness but weaker in abv. Finally a guinness contender but this stuff seems draft only.

daknole (10829) - 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 (10532) - 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.

Draft. Chocolate barley malt aroma. Very dark chestnut with moderate head. Chocolate-coffee malt flavor with a light hay hops flavor. Very nice.
