Not much of a head. Very little carbonation. Very weak body. It tastes even more of tar than from tap.

First impression: The stupid pressurized ball thing clogged the bottle neck when I tried to pour it. The problem was rectified with a more vigorous pour. And now, about the beer...Looks exactly like Guinness. I say this only because Guinness seems to be the industry standard. Rich opaque blackness with a thick tan head. I still can’t get over how thin Irish stouts are. They may look thick, but they are really not. But density aside, this has a pleasant roasted finish and a nice touch of hops. It definitely goes down smooth though.

Not much aroma, typical nitro pour with a thick, creamy head. Somewhat thin mouthfeel, but has a nice, mellow burnt taste and bitterness that I like. Worth a try.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2003 Not as good as Guiness, but sure it way up there. Nice black colour with a chocolate-white head. Nice chocolate aroma, and the flavour has distinct notes of chocolate as well. Finishes with a pleasent bitterness.

Features a thick creamy cappuccino-like head and is black with reddish hues. A coffee-espresso nose leads to notes of roasted barley and a drying finish. While Murphy’s seems slightly watery, it yields a full, roasted coffee/toffee flavor.
