Roasted coffee with a grainy edge. A mild body and low bitterness make this light and drinkable. I still don’t like nitro dispensed beers in can or on draft, but this is still a good session beer and a bit more interesting than the dominant Guinness

Comparable to Guinness in appearance but without the strong aftertaste. One of my favorite stouts. Smooth flavor and a creamy head.

Still has a way to go to surpass the experience that is a Guinness.

Brian (145) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2002
A stout that isn’t heavy, like Guiness, but still has that amazing stout color and texture when poured from the can. Taste is a light roast (compared with other stouts) and seems thinner, but I can deny it goes down quite well. Good for those who find Guinness too demanding.

Better off the tap than in the draught can, but a good buy nonethless. Malty, roasted flavors are abundant. Gets better as you go along.

Solid performer as far as Irish stouts go.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 26, 2001
Appearance: nice thick solid head atop an opaque body that seems rather thinnish when pouring. Nose: kind of weak, but nice smokiness, chocolate are noticeable. Flavor: dry, slightly smoky, bit of sugar and chocolate; nice but not distinctive. Rather thin in the mouth and a bit harsh going down. Certainly palatable, but Guinness and many others are better. (nitro can version)

Lost plenty of overall impression points for being too thin. I think Murphy’s is eve thicker. I’ve had this on tap in a pub and from the bottle. Unremarkable, I prefer any Guinness to this. This is very well-balanced, highly chugable, and woth every penny, but it’s really not worth writing hom about. If you’ve had the new Guinness in the bottle with the ’rocket widget’, and liked it, you’ll enjoy this one too.

Terrific Stout. Love the head. Very drinkable.
