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.

Clear black pour with a big creamy light beige head. Aroma has a roasty nuttiness with a faint creaminess under all of it. Flavor is clean and light, featuring notes of roasty dark malts, a little nuttiness, a little smoke, and some peat. A Light and quaffable well-made stout.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2007
Nitro tap at bllind tiger. Pours a deep dark brow almost black, with a frothy traditional nitro deep beige head. Aroma is nutty, and chocolate with some light roast and moderate coffee hints. Flavor is a bit more bland with osme light coffee and cream hints, chocolate, hoppy herbal bitterness- kinda tea-like- northern brewer? Smooth mouthfeel and easy drinking despite a thin body. Pretty good dry stout overall.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2007
Draught at Capone’s. Deep brown body with a fleeting beige head. Aroma of caramel, coffee, and cocoa with warm spicy hops. Some marshmallow chocolate sweetness in the flavor with subdued roastiness. A solid session stout with a bit more character than Guinness and many other dry stouts.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Nitro. No it doesn’t have the appearance of Guinness but it’s a hell of a lot roastier. Nicely bitter and drinkable with some chocolate and raisin. Could be just a bit creamier from the nitro.

On tap at victory. A very solid dry stout, could drink it all day. Locally, i still prefer Sly Fox’s OReilleys in the style. This is about on par with Guinness, though maybe a little lighter bodied. Maybe they’ll invent a widget and bottle it.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Draft at Victory - One of my favorite things about Victory is that all their beers pour and taste incredible at the brewery. No small accomplishment considering how many brewers fail at this seemingly simple task. This was no different. The taste is very mild with some coffee and chocolate flavors present. I suppose the limited complexity is due to the low alcohol. An everyday stout.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Draft, Rustico. Pours a dark brown color; creamy light tan head with great retention and lacing; very similar to Guinness, from the beginning. Burnt and toasted malts in the aroma; slightly watery. Creamy, slightly light, very drinkable; a lighter bodied version of Guinness with an emphasis on toasted malts and bread. Some bitter chocolate coming through mid-palate; I could drink a lot of this.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Pours black with a mocha head that is quite frothy and leaves lacing. Smells and tastes of coffee. The flavor also has notes of chocolate. It is light but not really in a bad way. Nice amount of bitterness. Smooth and dry finish.

Nitro pint at Trappeze. Pours reddish black with a firm, creamy head. The aroma is very dry with suggestions of sourdough and dark chocolate. This beer is really light on the palate, but is super creamy and doesn’t skimp on flavor. Hints of nuts, buttermilk, chocolate, and a dry, lingering wooden finish are here. I was in the mood for a light session beer and this one delivers in that department.

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2010
Draught at Coles, Buffalo, NY. Looks great! Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size lasting creamy tan head. Nice lacing. Mild aroma (but served quite cold) of dry roasted malt, coffee and light chocolate. Dry flavour of roasted malt and roasted coffee along with a hint of chocolate. Creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied. A simple yet solid Stout, easy to drink -- I quite enjoyed it.
