A decent stout that is good to retry every once in a while. However, I find that there are better "nitro" beers than this one, like, guinness. A decent beer to try, but only that. If you're a fan of stouts then go or it.

The less widely available (slightly) but equal in quality competition to Guinness. Let's face it, this one is probably just as good as the draught can guinness.

Unfortunately I sampled Murphys in a nitro can, and I am not a big fan of nitrogen based beers. Still, cannot argue with appearance of a nitro pour. Rich, dark opaque with the epitome of a creamy head. Nice roasted flavor with a touch of sweet maltiness. Hops are bitter and a background flavor. I just can't get over that dry nitro palate ...

Good appereance, but the creamy head is not so much persistent. The taste is more gentle and than Guinness, (with traces of coffee) but even less good. Very ,very refreshing and drinkable, but Guinness is definitely far better.

Keg. Light roasted malt aroma, more interesting taste, smooth, roasted malt, coffee, well mixed, with a pretty big roasted malt palate. Much better than Guinness.

Creamier than Guinness. Triple Crown Pub in Manhattan serves it on draught. The pour is same as Guinness. It is roasty and toasty. A true breakfast brew.

Not a bad beer. Good luck finding a bar that has it on tap. I think this stuff sucks out of a bottle. Good alternative to Guinness.

On Tap. Great alternative to Guinness. Smooth and creamy. Is a little lacking in the finish and aroma dept.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2003
UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 Similar to Guinness draft can with an uninteresting bitterness. Watery palate and lack of finish are expected, but still disappoint. Easy drinking.

Bronstein (175) - Göttingen, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2003
Nearly black, brown creamy head. Slightly smoky aroma. Malt, coffee, chocolate and roasted malt flavors. Finish with roasted bread and limited bitterness. Chocolate and roasted malt aftertaste. Creamy mouthfeel.
