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.

I didn’t care about the ABV, but what I did care about was the fact that this reminded me of Guinness. Very much watered down if you ask me. The best part about this was the coffee/ash flavor that the beer had. A nice dark black beer with a decent head. Not too bad looking, but the beer is TOO watery. I cannot get over this fact. I think that if they are going to make this it needs to have more body to it, but I realize they are going for the Guinness-type beer. I am not a fan of Guinness ergo I am not really a fan of this type of stout. I loved the ash and coffee flavors, and the look of it, but not a favorite of mine.

On tap at Leon’s. Decent tan head gives the first couple of sips a creamy and frothy texture. Aroma has a bit of nuttiness. The flavor is a little thin and disappointing. A little bit of roasted malt and a slightly bitter finish. Otherwise not much else happening especially for a stout.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 8, 2009
On tap at Bilbo Baggins in Alexandria, VA. Pours a deep ruby with a one finger tan nitro head. Aroma is light and subdued but roasty, cocoa. Taste is light to medium bodied with cocoa, malted milk balls, and some chocolate covered strawberries. Sweet, refreshing flavor rather than heavy roasted, typical stouts flavors. Clean finish. Lackluster but enjoyable.

Draught at Tylers Taproom in Carrboro. Pours a dark brown with copper edges and a moussey nitro head. Nose is earthy, nutty, leafy hops, mild roast. Flavor is earthy malt with mild roast, some diacetyl, metallic hops, light roast character. Creamy mouthfeel with a light body.

Got this on draught. The glass for this beer is cool. Poured really dark with soft brown tints when held to the light. Had a frothy head which helped the earthy flavors and roasty flavor come out. Was a little watery and lacked body for me, but decent.

Dark brown/black color with a thick tan head. Aroma of roast, chocolate, and vanilla. Flavor of roasted malts, chocolate with some vanilla. So-so beer. Really didn’t enjoy this much.

obguthr (5578) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2010
Draft: Roasted barley malt and sourwood nose. Clear mahogany, firm medium tan head, good lacing. Dry malt, parsley, and mulberry flavor, very low intensity. Wonderfully creamy mouthfeel. Irish style stout with more of an emphasis on texture than flavor. Easy to drink.

mansquito (5181) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Pint at Angels and Kings, NYC ($6): I had somewhat high hopes for this beer and unfortunately, they were not delivered. Basically, it looks like a Guinness when it pours with a cascading head and all that. (The bar claimed this beer was better than Guinness) Anyway, there are some hop and roasted malts aromas with hints of chocolate, but unfortunately, the beer reminds me of Guinness out of a can... The body is thin. The flavor insubstantial. Ultimately, an all around disappointment. I still would say it is an above average beer, but it ain’t good enough.

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.
