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.

Nitro at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours a 2 layer 4 finger head. The dark tan bottom coalesces into a creamy tan beige top. Can almost write in it. Aroma is pretty much like Guinness with a bit more chocolate than G. Med minus body. Flavor mostly of dark malt - burnt, and a little ashy/gritty. A little dark chocolate liners into the finish. Which is a bit more bitter than sweet. With time chocolate seems stronger. Pretty nice take on a stout.

Butters (4049) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2012
On draft at beerrun. Pours a very dark, guiness like near black with good dense tan head. Roasty and a a little earthy dirt chocoalate. creamy smooth body fromthe nitro i guess. Pretty drinkable, but not as good as a guiness.

queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Nitro tap at Three Fires. Coffee, chocolate, earthy/peaty aroma. Deep mahogany with a creamy tan nitro head. Light roasted coffee, earthy/dirt, and subtle spruce flavor with a light spicy finish. Light creamy body. Really great flavor for 3.7%. I was a little surprised at this one.

onceblind (8417) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2013
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.

Deep brown pour with classic nitro head. Aroma is coffee, crystal and toasted malt. Flavor is light coffee, hints of coffee, some toasted malts. Thin mouthfeel. Maybe the tastiest below-session beer Ive ever had.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - 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 Capones. 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 doesnt have the appearance of Guinness but its a hell of a lot roastier. Nicely bitter and drinkable with some chocolate and raisin. Could be just a bit creamier from the nitro.

victory (45) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2007
On tap at victory. A very solid dry stout, could drink it all day. Locally, i still prefer Sly Foxs OReilleys in the style. This is about on par with Guinness, though maybe a little lighter bodied. Maybe theyll invent a widget and bottle it.
