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.

On tap at Swanky Bubbles in Voorhees, NJ and one of the most challenging beers I’ve reviewed - challenging because it looks amazing and goes down smoother than silk but it lacks flavor and aroma. There you have it - that’s my review (pretty much). Stunningly gorgeous with a wildly rich and creamy tan head. The texture of the head and the body of the beer grab you right away but there isn’t enough flavor to pull your attention away. Mild bittersweet chocolate and burnt coffee with a strong emphasis on *mild*. Very little carbonation in keeping with the style. If it had more flavor this donnybrook would have delivered a knockout but the appearance and texture alone warrant a few more rounds.

Draft at Victory...Frothy thick tan head...dark brown to black color....typical c02 separation (always a pleasure to watch)....1st pour from fresh keg.......metallic aromas and and aftertaste, not much else....so I give it back to the bartender and request another brew, he hands me a sample and and tastes it himself, sooooo 2nd pour....I get more of a milky coffee aroma, but still the same metallic taste and finish

Its tough to make a good beer that is this light. Victory almost succeeds, but the ingredients just need to be doubled. A roasted and slightly chocolate malt flavor ends in a watery finish. To keep a good taste going, you have to drink it quickly. Overall, not a bad beer, but not worth the slightly extra expense.

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.

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

Enjoyed this one at the Wells Fargo Center while attending the Villanova vs. Louisville game with some friends. Looks like Guinness in the glass but lighter in color. The taste is very smooth, and has a light finish that was a bit disappointing - notably lighter than Guinness and Murphys which linger nicely on the palate. All in all, not one of my favorites from Victory.

Draft (nitro), blind tiger. Not hugely remarkable - but good. Like an amped up Guinness I suppose. Roasty but thin, too much like burnt popcorn. I see what they’re trying to do here, but it misses. Maybe next batch.

Served at Victory brewery PA- Dark brew with off white head. Fresh but very watered down, weak barley grain flavor. There is no Guinness comparison here.

RickTheRick (602) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Pas de doute lorsque l’on regarde cette bière dans le noir des yeux : c’est opaque, c’est très foncé et c’est définitivement un stout. Un joli col mousseux bien épais se pose sur toute cette noirceur et laisse une belle dentelle collante. Au nez, des notes torréfiés légères et le chocolat noir sont en vedette. Une certaine amertume un peu terreuse se joint aux flaveurs chocolatées et de céréales grillées mais malheureusement, la bière est très mince voire aqueuse. Une tentative de "Session Dry Stout" un peu ratée, mais qui peut somme toute intéressante pour les gens qui ont peur des bières noires.

Pours black with a white head. Roasted malt, chocolate. Thin mouthfeel. Tasted a little watery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
