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.

Dark and lovely, but its charms end there. Standard watery stout with a hint of caramel, and more water.

Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Draft, dark bodied with ruby edges and a uniformly thin creamy off-white head that remained throughout. Had a mild cafe au lait aroma, some chocolate maltiness, and notes of dark fruits. Flavor was bitter roasted barley, cream, sweet fruity/honey malt, mildly coffee and chocolate malt. Palate was watery lacking body, yet smooth. Finish was only slightly bitter from the malt. Standard dry stout I suppose, which is why I donít drink them.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Nitro at Leonís Full Service served in a Donnybrook pint glass. Pours dark, dark chocolate brown with a massive creamy nitro head that lingers for the duration and leaves good lacing. Itís like a lighter version of Guinness. The aroma is very sedate on this one with some dark chocolate malts and little else. The taste is a slight step up from the aroma with a more noticeable chocolate presence and more sweetness overall. The finish is dry and roasty. The mouthfeel is thin and slightly watery with soft carbonation. This is a decent dry stout but itís nothing to write home about.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Served at Victory brewery PA- Dark brew with off white head. Fresh but very watered down, weak barley grain flavor. There is no Guinness comparison here.

craftbeerdesign (2167) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2009
sample at Taco Mac, Windward. dark black with a big off white head. aromas of roasted malt and some ash. Very watered down light body - a bit of chocolate/coffee... this one is similar to Guinness in body, aroma and some flavor - however Guinness wins hands down. I would not order this one....

Served from tap into a standard pint. Pours an almost black with a one finger light tan head. Maintains decent lacing throughout. The aroma is comprised of earthy and nutty notes. The flavor is of light malt and nutty notes. It had a medium feel on the palate with low carbonation. Overall I was not really a big fan of this one. It wasnít bad for a low ABV stout, but not good for being considered a stout. Basically everything needs to be a little more robust on this one and amplified.
