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.

DrSilverworm (9091) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Taster on tap at Twenty Tap. Black color. Thin khaki head, with good retention. Thicker lace. Good milk chocolate, lightly roasty, lightly dark fruity nose... Classic, clean irish stout aroma. Maybe a bit more earthy hop bitterness, than say, a Guinness. I like it, though. Lighter body. Smooth, kind of creamy, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. A solid dry irish stout. I let robotopera have the last 1/3 of my taster. He called it "overwhelmingly mild. Like there’s nothing there; like it’s cut." I guess he’s not used to dry irish stouts.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - 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.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2007
Draft at Capone’s. Dark blackish brown pour with minimal off-white head. Aroma of roast dark malt, some chocolate syrup. Medium palate heft, with a rather disappointing flavor profile, containing notes of roast malt, some chocolate, and an overall dryness throughout.

3fourths (8795) - 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.

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2009
Tap at Trappeze, Athens GA Pours dark brown with thick mocha like nitro head Aroma was rather weak and watery with some malts for a charcoal nose. Taste, light, some roasted malts and thin touch of coffee with undertones of mocha with a lactose like palate. Overall mouthfeel was fluffy and silky/creamy with good nitro presence. Victory’s version of Guinness? dry finish, simple, light, too watery for my taste but very drinkable.

BMan1113VR (7909) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 22, 2011
On nitro tap. Pours with a near black body with a nice looking creamy to milky, tan nitro head. Aromas are bready, smokey, roasty with hints of coffee. Light floral hops. Flavors are watery, tobacco, nuts, tea, coffee grounds and leather. Somewhat more assertive mouthfeel than some nitro taps but still feels a bit watery.
