Very creamy head. Nice mild bitterness in flavour and aftertaste.

A decent stout, but my experience was one of a mild and watery brew with weak stout characteristics. Based on the other strong scores, I may have to get another to rerate. Others are comparing this to Guinness-in my opinion Guinness is much better.

My absolutely favourite stout out there. Even though I drink other stuff besdes stout, when asked about my favourite beer it’s gotta be MURPHY’S STOUT. I used to think Guiness was the shit until I tried this several years ago. Those two are indeed close in many ways, but Murphy’s has the better flavor.

To me, Guinness looks better, but Murphy’s taste better. Murphy’s flavors are more pronuonced of burnt chocolate and pine. When given a choice from on tap, I always take Murphy’s over Guinness. Mouthfeel is silky creamy smooth. Not bad for a mass produced beer.

a pretty good stout, nice dark color and creamy head, similar to guinness, but a tad sweeter.

Mildly roasted coffee/chocolate. Darkest brown, Creamy toffee head. Lasts until the beer is finished. Roasted hops taste. Great lace! Watery. It’s alright.

A little mild for a stout by my tastes, but pretty good none the less. Looks and smells great, but could use a little more strong malt flavor in it to really make me like it.
