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.

Black body with a medium sized beige head that fades. The nose is roast, chocolate and brown sugar. The flavor is dry with roast, light chocolate and light molasses. Medium/light body is soft with light carbonation.

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 (1809) - SE DC, Washington DC, 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 (4856) - 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.

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 (1092) - 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 (10689) - 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.

Butters (3725) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2012
On draft at beerrun. Pours a very dark, guiness like near black with good dense tan head. Roasty and a a little earthy dirt chocoalate. creamy smooth body fromthe nitro i guess. Pretty drinkable, but not as good as a guiness.

Nitro tap at Three Fires. Coffee, chocolate, earthy/peaty aroma. Deep mahogany with a creamy tan nitro head. Light roasted coffee, earthy/dirt, and subtle spruce flavor with a light spicy finish. Light creamy body. Really great flavor for 3.7%. I was a little surprised at this one.
