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.

GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 8, 2009
On tap at Bilbo Baggins in Alexandria, VA. Pours a deep ruby with a one finger tan nitro head. Aroma is light and subdued but roasty, cocoa. Taste is light to medium bodied with cocoa, malted milk balls, and some chocolate covered strawberries. Sweet, refreshing flavor rather than heavy roasted, typical stouts flavors. Clean finish. Lackluster but enjoyable.

Taster on tap at Twenty Tap. Black color. Thin khaki head, with good retention. Thicker lace. Good milk chocolate, lightly roasty, lightly dark fruity nose... Classic, clean irish stout aroma. Maybe a bit more earthy hop bitterness, than say, a Guinness. I like it, though. Lighter body. Smooth, kind of creamy, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. A solid dry irish stout. I let robotopera have the last 1/3 of my taster. He called it "overwhelmingly mild. Like there’s nothing there; like it’s cut." I guess he’s not used to dry irish stouts.

Draft at Blind Tiger. Pours near black with a creamy nitro head. Light roasty aroma with a hint of chocolate. Roasted malty flavor, light chocolate with an earthy hint. Slight acidity. Pretty true to the dry stout style.

solidfunk (9734) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Thick black pour with good head and lacing. Light roast, light coffee and a creamy thick consistency. Dry finish with some saltiness. Tap at Meridian Pint.

2.1
3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Cask pint at Zeno’s Real Ale Fest. Thin tan head on a cola colored dark brown body. Thin coffee and burnt/char aromas, with heavy notes of old, soggy coffee in the nose. Texture is very weak and thin by cask beer standards, with heavily astringent coffee and chocolate and char, with more of that old, stale coffee ground note. Finishes thin, weak and wet. This is really a terrible beer to offer on cask, and it didn’t sit well in my stomach at all.

b3shine (9271) - Indiana, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a translucent cola with light beige lacing. Smells of dark malt and roast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A little thin and a little bland.

3.4
drowland (9184) - Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2010
On tap in a pint glass. On nitro. The aroma is hay, tannins, husks, grain, and not much. The flavor is extremely watery with meat, smoke, and not much else.

radagast83 (8624) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2009
On Draft. Fantastic pour, akin to Guinness’ look. Carbonation perfect, head was creamy off-white, color of beer was near-black. Flavor, again, quite similar to Guinness. Nothing out of this world, but I really needed the low ABV after hitting some harder beers earlier in the evening.’
