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.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Served on Nitro at the Victory Brewpub. Pours a deep brown/black with some amber peeking through. Rich creamy light tan nitro infused head that left layers of lace down the side of the glass. Aroma of chocolate, light coffee, bready and roasted malts along with some earthiness. Flavor was surprising a lot of grainy/bready malts at first then followed by roast/chocolate malt, very light hop bitterness and even some hints of smoke. Very nice dry stout. I have a feeling we will see more of this beer at the Victory Pub in additional to local PA establishments.

Sampler at the brew pub. One word to describe this stout is SMOOTH. The taste of creamy roasted malts with very low alcohol content.

Nickls (2363) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap) Jet black color, with a great creamy tan head. Very muted maltiness, and not the roasted characteristics that I was looking for. Pretty basic, but very good nonetheless. Well-rounded maltiness, some muted roastiness. Creamy MF, and very filling. This is one of the better dry stouts I’ve had in this category. Solid on the drinkability side. Very well-balanced and just enough to be interesting. At such a low ABV, this would be superbly sessionable IMO. Overall, this was a nice basic dry stout and hit the spot on a cold night

kramer (5801) - 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.

On tap at the Blind Tiger’s Victory event. Pours a deep mahogany black with a large beige head. Roast, toast, chocolate and toasted marshmallows. Medium bodied, lots of chocolate and a bit sweet. Caramel and vanilla, nice sweetness. Smooth, chocolate, caramel, roast and coffee on the finish.

Draft at fireworks pizza. Pours a very foam opaque dark brown. Thick fluffy and silky head. Lots of roast with a nut of licorice and smoke. Nice and dry and refreshing.

wchesser (1882) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2012
Solid Irish style stout. Jet black, creamy nitro head after the beautiful tumbling out-gassing. Dark roasted malt and some coffee. Nose pretty flat but not offensive.

bhensonb (13998) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 27, 2012
Nitro at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours a 2 layer 4 finger head. The dark tan bottom coalesces into a creamy tan beige top. Can almost write in it. Aroma is pretty much like Guinness with a bit more chocolate than G. Med minus body. Flavor mostly of dark malt - burnt, and a little ashy/gritty. A little dark chocolate liners into the finish. Which is a bit more bitter than sweet. With time chocolate seems stronger. Pretty nice take on a stout.
