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.

slowrunner77 (6728) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 6, 2014
" fairly standard nitro dry stout - a little disappointing after several other styles had been well above average. thin bodied, with not enough dryness or smoke. chocolate and a little roasted malt present. skippable."

blipp (6722) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Draft at Blind Tiger. Pours near black with a creamy nitro head. Light roasty aroma with a hint of chocolate. Roasted malty flavor, light chocolate with an earthy hint. Slight acidity. Pretty true to the dry stout style.

drowland (6673) - Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2010
On tap in a pint glass. On nitro. The aroma is hay, tannins, husks, grain, and not much. The flavor is extremely watery with meat, smoke, and not much else.

blankboy (6444) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2010
Draught at Coles, Buffalo, NY. Looks great! Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size lasting creamy tan head. Nice lacing. Mild aroma (but served quite cold) of dry roasted malt, coffee and light chocolate. Dry flavour of roasted malt and roasted coffee along with a hint of chocolate. Creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied. A simple yet solid Stout, easy to drink -- I quite enjoyed it.

b3shine (6387) - Indiana, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a translucent cola with light beige lacing. Smells of dark malt and roast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A little thin and a little bland.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2010
Draught - at Cole’s. Near black pour, solid lasting creamy nitro head. Dry, slightly lactic aroma - mild, with cocoa and light peat or even a hint of smoke. Can really taste the nitro effect, but I will try not to hold that against it - it’s dry, herbal, deeply roasty, nice soft graininess - hardly any alcohol presence at all, very smooth. Creamy, mildly carbonated, ever so slightly acidic, with a quick, dry finish ---- easy to drink, more or less sessionable - not bad.

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2011
Draft on tap at the Binnys SL Taproom (Chicago, IL). Pours a well blackened pour, near opaque, some ruby edges, with a frothy nitro head, tannish light pour laces well. Aromas are some decent roasty malts, touches of floral hops, some soda bread, toast and bread. A decent roast for such a light stout. Initial is lighter bodied, mellow with light roast, toast, dry soda bread, some mellow floral hops, bitterness and creaminess from the nitro clash well. This goes down way too easy. Light and airy, nothing overbearing with toasted oats, roasted malts, a faint touch of coffee. Some creaminess, faint cocoa, light dry roasty slightly bitter finish. A lighter stout, not complex but balanced and easily quaffed. Sadly, didn’t try this till the middle of April.. Till the next year. For a beer that is .5% ABV less than a Macro Light lager, this is nice.
