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.

On tap in Berwyn, PA, Main Street Pub. Pours a midnight black with one finger of head that stays with it. Beer was very dark with coffee tones to it. Unfortunately it was very sour and thick. Bitter aftertaste that stayed in my mouth for a few minutes. I would not buy this beer again. Go with the storm king stout by Victory, an excellent beer. This has been my only dissapointing beer so far from Victory, an otherwise great brewer.

kevd193213 (991) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 20, 2010
On draught. Dark brown pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of dry coffee and malt. Thin mouthfeel, bland taste of stale chocolate, faint vanilla and malt with a dry finish.

I have to agree with many others on this rating. Probably not one of Victorys best brews. It doesnt 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 wouldnt but a case of this or pay full micro price for it either.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2008
At brewery. Poured a thinish black body with a nice frothy off- white head. The aroma is quite week with some bitter coffee and lactic notes. Flavor is moslty old bitter dry coffee with some subtle hints of earthy hops and mild sour milk. Not at all a fan of the style.

RickTheRick (949) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Pas de doute lorsque lon regarde cette bire dans le noir des yeux : cest opaque, cest trs fonc et cest dfinitivement un stout. Un joli col mousseux bien pais se pose sur toute cette noirceur et laisse une belle dentelle collante. Au nez, des notes torrfis lgres et le chocolat noir sont en vedette. Une certaine amertume un peu terreuse se joint aux flaveurs chocolates et de crales grilles mais malheureusement, la bire est trs mince voire aqueuse. Une tentative de "Session Dry Stout" un peu rate, mais qui peut somme toute intressante pour les gens qui ont peur des bires noires.

bp (915) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Draft at the brewery: pours a dark black with a big frothy head, aroma of coffee and malt, taste is dry with some malt and coffee flavors though both are fairly subtle, watery mouthfeel from a beer that looks like it would be pretty heavy. Pretty good interpretation of the style.

hivemind (907) - 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. Its like a thinner, more boring Guinness. Really not much to not but its not really bad. No donnybrook going on here.

ExpendableHero (901) - Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Kind of like a super Guinness. Dark, cola colored beer with a white head. Faint aromas of chocolate. Tastes of mild chocolate, watery coffee, and some roasted grains. Bittersweet, somewhat lactic, finish. Very dry on the mouth feel but very smooth. Tasty and easy to drink.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, 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.

On hand pump at Brewpub. Pours dark reddish black, creamy tan head. Lightly bitter and sweet. Roast, caramel, cereal. Smooth, light body.
