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.

Tap. Nice smooth palate courtesy of the nitro. Thin body. Flavor of chocolate malts and rich dirt.

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.

On tap at Khyber Pass Pub, Philadelphia. Dark black color. Creamy head. Little aroma and its not from being too chilled . Chocolaty malt, but weak flavor for the style.

On tap @ Rattle N Hum. Black with a thick tan head that sticks around. Malt, smoke, roasty aroma, light chocolate note. Surprisingly light bodied, very smooth, dry with a very light bitterness. Very thin on the palate, easy drinking. Not intensely flavorful or strong, but good for what it is, a low alcohol, refreshing stout.

For what this beer is I liked it contrary to most other ratings here. aroma was rather one dimensional being really just roasted barley with a bit of coffee. apperence was black with a good tan head that had nitro present. flavor was all roasted barley with coffee notes, pretty dry and very easy drinking. I thought this would be a really good session pint that would go down well all day. palate was medium and much like stouts I sampled in england.

Brewed in the USA..... On tap at the Brewery !!! Pours a very dark brown color with an awesome tan head. Aroma of chocolate and malts. Taste is of chocolate, roasted malts and a hint of coffee. The mouthfeel is super creamy with a slightly dry finish. This is the best example of Guinness that ive seen yet.

Draft at Victory...Frothy thick tan head...dark brown to black color....typical c02 separation (always a pleasure to watch)....1st pour from fresh keg.......metallic aromas and and aftertaste, not much else....so I give it back to the bartender and request another brew, he hands me a sample and and tastes it himself, sooooo 2nd pour....I get more of a milky coffee aroma, but still the same metallic taste and finish

Tap. Deep brown with ruby highlights and a longlasting, one finger off-white head. Light aroma of something which im unable to discern. Reminds me of a shoe store, though. Taste is lightly fruity and some tobacco. Semi-dry finish. Light bitterness. Fairly light body. Id take a guiness over this.

On tap at Swanky Bubbles in Voorhees, NJ and one of the most challenging beers I’ve reviewed - challenging because it looks amazing and goes down smoother than silk but it lacks flavor and aroma. There you have it - that’s my review (pretty much). Stunningly gorgeous with a wildly rich and creamy tan head. The texture of the head and the body of the beer grab you right away but there isn’t enough flavor to pull your attention away. Mild bittersweet chocolate and burnt coffee with a strong emphasis on *mild*. Very little carbonation in keeping with the style. If it had more flavor this donnybrook would have delivered a knockout but the appearance and texture alone warrant a few more rounds.

Very nice appearance look you would expect from a stout but mild and without character. No aroma to speak of and none of the chocolate or coffee flavors that make this style special.
