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.

Im guessing this is what was labeled dry stout at the brewery. I thought this was really good. Really dark colour, very smooth and light body. Had a really nice roasted malt taste to it as well. Good beer.

nuplastikk (4269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Draft at Max’s Taphouse, Baltimore. Was listed at 5% on the menu, but 3.7% sounds a little more on the mark. Pitch black color. Very subdued carbonation. Sweet and dry with lots of roasty, chocolate nuances. Excellent Stout with a lot of character.

Black with good, creamy, tan head / Light nose of coffee and cocoa / Medium to full body, creamy, some acidity, with good balance and finish / Soft, smooth, flavors of coffee and unsweetened chocolate / Very nice, especially in the body, without being distinctive.

On tap at Brunzies. Nice roasty aroma with notes of chocolate, coffee, and smoke. Dark brown-black opaque with creamy beige lacing head. Medium body on nitro tap. Mild flavors, light lactose, and rich roasted malt. Some coffee and chocolate. Mild carbonic tang and light malt bitterness. Nutty finish with clean after.

Not a standout type beer, but wildly drinkable! Man does it go down easy. Id prefer this over Guinness any day.

unclemattie (4117) - Georgia, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Tap@ TacoMac, crabapple. Nitro pour! Dark black, silky light tan heavy cream floating over the darkness. Roasted grain aroma, very light. Flavor is creamy textured, dry cereal, chalky. Finishes with a familiar Victory yeast fruitiness. Very dry on the palate. One of the best Dry Stouts on nitro you can get. Convert any Guiness drinker.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2010
Tap at Angels and Kings. Pours dark brown, murky, with a nitrous, dense and creamy tan head. Pleasant aroma of dark, roasted malts and light cocoa. Mildly sweet flavor, with a nice, roasty character. Some bitterness further dries out what is already a dry experience. Medium bodied with soft, extremely fine carbonation. Very creamy and velvety. At 3.7%, this is a miraculously tasty beer and an absolute delight to the sessioner in all of us. Its hard to believe this beer clocks in at just over a 3.

Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Georgetown. Nearly black, off white head. Aroma of coffee. Taste is coffee, slight cocoa, black pepper. Nice.

kramer (4857) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2010
On tap, at brewery. Pours a clear dark brown body with a thick nitro beige head. Nice dry and roasty nose with some light coffee and dark chocolate. Light flavor, a little thin, with light roast and coffee. Finishes with some light malt bitterness. Light bodied and thin with the usual nitro mouthfeel. Decent, and very drinkable. I could have had a few of these.
