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.

Pours black with a mocha head that is quite frothy and leaves lacing. Smells and tastes of coffee. The flavor also has notes of chocolate. It is light but not really in a bad way. Nice amount of bitterness. Smooth and dry finish.

hivemind (890) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Tap @ Pony w Streets. Black pour, light cinnamon head with heavy, webby lacing. Aroma is tobacco smoke. Thin, watery palate with light notes of roasty malts but not much else going on. It’s like a thinner, more boring Guinness. Really not much to not but it’s not really bad. No donnybrook going on here.

On hand pump at Brewpub. Pours dark reddish black, creamy tan head. Lightly bitter and sweet. Roast, caramel, cereal. Smooth, light body.

bp (888) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Draft at the brewery: pours a dark black with a big frothy head, aroma of coffee and malt, taste is dry with some malt and coffee flavors though both are fairly subtle, watery mouthfeel from a beer that looks like it would be pretty heavy. Pretty good interpretation of the style.

This one didn’t do much for me. Poured from the tap to a dark brown with medium tan head that lingered awhile and left okay lacing. Nose and taste were botrh a faint chocolate malt and the mouthfeel was fairly flat and watery. At only 3.7% abv, there was no noticeable alcohol, and the finish was short and non-descript.

ExpendableHero (854) - Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Kind of like a super Guinness. Dark, cola colored beer with a white head. Faint aromas of chocolate. Tastes of mild chocolate, watery coffee, and some roasted grains. Bittersweet, somewhat lactic, finish. Very dry on the mouth feel but very smooth. Tasty and easy to drink.

ttutony (848) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Jet black with a creamy off-white head. Nice roasted aroma profile. Pretty light body, but makes for a sessionable stout.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Pours pitch black as it settles. Coffee aroma and taste. It is thinner than other stouts, but as such is very drinkable and refreshing. Very good low abv stout.

Draft at Victory - One of my favorite things about Victory is that all their beers pour and taste incredible at the brewery. No small accomplishment considering how many brewers fail at this seemingly simple task. This was no different. The taste is very mild with some coffee and chocolate flavors present. I suppose the limited complexity is due to the low alcohol. An everyday stout.

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