Impressive stout- relatively inexpensive too. Nice head, and great flavor.

Despite its decent aroma, itís metallic aftertaste, gossamer body and fleeting nitro foam donít make for a substantial experience.

opiate (199) - Sandy, Utah, USA - NOV 3, 2001
A damn good stout. I liked this even better than Guinness. A touch richer and had a great chocolate flavor.

Very good stout, good body, color and aroma. Bitterness at an ideal balance.

VERY GOOD STOUT, ALOT SMOOTHER THAN GUINESS, AND NOT AS BITTER

canary dog (655) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - OCT 25, 2001
Typical widget beer (I am rating the canned version): smooth and soft, but not much in the flavor department. Seems a little weaker than Guinness.

K-V-F-L (292) - LaVista, Nebraska, USA - OCT 16, 2001
Properly done stout, but no inspiration in it. Itís Norman Rockwell when you want Monet. Smooth but lacks richness.

I have been drinking Murphyís for 3 years from keg at home but switched to Beamish. It has better head, better color and better flavor. Guiness is good when Iím out at pub, but a little to powerful for day to day consumption.

the dryness of the stout is overcome by the choice of hopps
