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 nitro-pours a full creamy light brown head that laces after the cascading finished and black color. Aroma is dark malt, roasty. Taste is dark malt-chocolate/coffee, secondary acidity/bitterness from hops. Soft carbonation. Nice, not my style.

On tap at the brewpub. Clear cola with a brown head. Chocolaty nose, powdery. The decent nose lies - weak ass choco-coffee flavors, not much else. Smooth but too watery. Decent lace. Disappointing.

TURDFERGUSON (4010) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2008
On nitro at Speakeasy. Pour is exactly like Guinness...black with a thick meringue like white head. Nose is pretty faint, slight roasted malt, a bit of cream. Flavor is pretty similar to Guinness as well. Ick. Bartender told me to have this last because it was a palate killer. Hahaha. He also said it was a coffee stout. Could not smell any coffee in this beer and looking at the description it seems he was wrong there too. Of course the girl sitting at the bar tells me to trust my bartender and since I knew the guy I did not want to seem rude, but he really does not know shit. Surprise. Not a huge fan of Guinness and honestly I would have thought this was Guinness if I had got it blind. Next...

Draft: Poured a rolling black with legs down the glass, the head was tan. The aroma was very light. The taste was creamy roasted barley there a slight dry gritty coffee flavor as well.

Tap. Deep brown with ruby highlights and a longlasting, one finger off-white head. Light aroma of something which i’m unable to discern. Reminds me of a shoe store, though. Taste is lightly fruity and some tobacco. Semi-dry finish. Light bitterness. Fairly light body. I’d take a guiness over this.

On nitro-tap at Rustico - Alexandria. Served in a pint glass. Pours a very dark brown with a very impressive reverse-cascading mocha head and good retention. The nose carries some very light roast and a touch of chocolate. Nothing too complex, but I wasn’t expecting too much. Flavor falls a bit flat after the nose, with just a bit of roast and not much else. Medium body with a nice nitro feel. Pretty good, though below Victory standards for me.

Dark brown color, steady creamy beige head. Toasted aroma with tobacco and some citrusy notes. Light to medium-bodied. Flavor has toastyness and light earthy notes. Watery finish. Disappointment from Victory.

Chipalsa (1311) - Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2012
On tap @ Oblivion Taproom. This dry stout wasn’t too dry, but had more hop dryness than I’d like in a stout. The finish was light and roasty with a hint of cocoa, but altogether very mellow.

Dogbrick (9156) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Sample at World Of Beer. Pours brownish-black with a medium tan head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted and a bit of chocolate. Light body with a sweet roast character and notes of chocolate malt and grain. The finish is short with a malt aftertaste. Pretty forgettable beer all in all.

Draft at bloke n bird. Pours black with brown head. Guiness type aroma and taste. Couldnt distinguish between them a whole lot. Satisfying beer overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
