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.

sebletitje (9033) - 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 (7914) - 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.
