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.

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.

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 (2175) - 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....

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 22, 2008
On tap at Tylers, Durham. Pretty thin looking body, almost like a brown, with a very minimal amount of carbonation. Sure enough, the body is perilously thin, which I think is a surprise for the solid Victory. Faint malts, very little roasts at all, nothing even approaching the pleasures the style can often afford. Not good.

Pours opaque and black with a nice thick white head. Coffee aroma. Not a lot of flavor but whatís their has a hint of coffee. Too thin for me. Essentially a Guinness clone.

MrChopin (3280) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Black with a white head. Nose mainly of milk chocolate and light roast, none of the hops showing. Flavor shows a light balance as the hops emerge, but again, this is stout dominated with roasted malt dominating. No carbonation, which is ok but continues the lack of balance. Meh, still has a significant lead over Guinness.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2011
An ugly dark brown that has lots of amber, body isnít right, a decent beige head leaves a two finger lasting cap... Nose is way too light, a touch of cream and coffee, not bad just nothing going on... Taste is pretty boring too with a watery mouthfeel, Didnít expect tons of flavor at 3 .7abv but a fuller feel would go a long way, easy to drink coffee water... Too crushable but Iíd pas in the future

I have to agree with many others on this rating. Probably not one of Victoryís best brews. It doesnít have much aroma (disappointing) and for a dry stout, it is watered down too much. Not much of carbonation, but still a drinkable beer. I wouldnít but a case of this or pay full micro price for it either.

hivemind (709) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Tap @ Pony w Streets. Black pour, light cinnamon head with heavy, webby lacing. Aroma is tobacco smoke. Thin, watery palate with light notes of roasty malts but not much else going on. Itís like a thinner, more boring Guinness. Really not much to not but itís not really bad. No donnybrook going on here.

On tap at Khyber Pass Pub, Philadelphia. Dark black color. Creamy head. Little aroma and its not from being too chilled . Chocolaty malt, but weak flavor for the style.
