Very nice coffee aroma and flavor, smooth but almost no body, if it wasn’t so watery it would have rated much better

Dark, dark brown with a thick, firm head. Full bodied flavour with both coffee and chocolate in a wonderful mix.

My third favorite of the big three - a little harsher, less refined perhaps than Beamish in particular

I have been waiting a long time to try this one and I am glad to say that I was not dissapointed. Really creamy and smooth head and is just a little less bitter then Guinnes. Can’t wait to have another.

Black and beautiful, but with a rather weak head and not much aroma. Generally, this seems like a watered-down <a href=’http://www.ratebeer.com/ShowBeer.asp?BeerID= -- basically similar in every way, but thinner and weaker.

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.

Not bad.I perfer Guinness over this, but a great stout.Dark and rich with subtle coffee and chocolate flavors.

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.
