May have gotten a bad can. Very disappointed. Pales in comparison to Guiness. Lacking taste and body. My friends love this beer.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2004 This isn't as thick and creamy as a can of Guinnessbut it's still a fine, very available can of Irish tout!

IMHO the closest thing you can get to Guinness. I have even had days where I prefer Murphys over Guinness! Very soft on the palate with a nice creaminess.

I always thought that Guinness was a lot better till I drank more of Murphy’s and realized that it wasn’t that far off.

Very smooth, nice change from the standard, mass produced beers. Another ’safe’ choice for my wife to pick up.

I got excited when I read the reviews, but I think I still consider Guinness a better beer. This one seemed a little off.

The aroma is sweet, and if I didn’t see the bottle and the brew inside I wouldn’t think this was a stout. The head is small but persistent, very fine-bubbled. Color is almost black on draught. First sip was a bit earthy, but it soon smoothed out into a nice almost completely non-bitter stout. Problem to me was the palate...it’s just too light for me...for a stout. I kept expecting more and it just wasn’t there. I liked the smell, the look, and the taste, but I think I will stick to Guinness or a few other stouts I’ve tried. I can see why some people like this one, but I really don’t, or at least not enough to try it again.
