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.

Prometheus (160) - Bamberg, Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2010
Pours black with small off-white head. Strong roasted malts flavor. No hops came through. Not bad with some decent flavors though nothing special.

MrChopin (4304) - 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.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Nitro. Pours brune body with a tan head. Dry roasted malt, some light chocolate, very thin and session-able, a craft brewers spin on a common macro stout with more flavor despite the lower abv. Clean soft, with a creamy body courtesy of the nitro.

fiulijn (19872) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2009
Draught at Pony Bar, New York
Dark mahogany color; creamy head. Light aroma of roasted malt. Dry dark caramel flavor, light ashes in the end. Simple Dunkel.

Bricks (1057) - Delaware, USA - DEC 15, 2009
On draft at PHL -- Smells of roasted barley, but its a very faint aroma. Beer pours dark brown with a slight amber tinge. You can tell from the head that its going to be weak. Taste is spicier than avg for a stout. Palate is smooth, but very watered down, as is the taste.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2009
Draft @ Coles, Buffalo NY> Dark brown/black casading pour. Tan guinness like head. Dry roasted malt aroma. Taste is same as aroma. Decent mouthfeel, nice sessionable stout

TreborWhip (393) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Sampler at the brew pub. One word to describe this stout is SMOOTH. The taste of creamy roasted malts with very low alcohol content.

SpencerDB (223) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Got this on draught. The glass for this beer is cool. Poured really dark with soft brown tints when held to the light. Had a frothy head which helped the earthy flavors and roasty flavor come out. Was a little watery and lacked body for me, but decent.

emacgee (4658) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2009
Draught at Tylers Taproom in Carrboro. Pours a dark brown with copper edges and a moussey nitro head. Nose is earthy, nutty, leafy hops, mild roast. Flavor is earthy malt with mild roast, some diacetyl, metallic hops, light roast character. Creamy mouthfeel with a light body.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 19, 2009
On tap @ Victory. Dark brown with a tan creamy head. Light roasty aroma with a touch of smoke. Sweet flavor with some roasty bitterness. Medium to light body with a creamy soft mouth feel but a bit thin and watery in the finish. Not a bad beer, just a bit watery.
