Sorry about the earlier rating everyone. On second try this stout was everything short of mediocre. I wouldn’t even say it was like guinness, which wouldn’t be much of a compliment anyway. Watery and some sort of much too sweet caramel taste in there. Not very good at all.

A good drinking beer. Robust taste. Good alternative to Guinness.

I’m developing more of a taste for dark brews. This is one of the better one’s. It has little carbonation and is kind of watery. Drinking right now and I would buy this again.

Not a fan of stout beers and probably wouldn’t get it again, but it was not the worst beer I have had and I am sure if I was into stout beers I would have enjoyed this. Lighter tasting then Guinnes beer.

Decidecly superior to the overrated Guinness Extra Stout. Very nice balance, slight sweetnes and an alcohol tint. Very smooth, but lighter than most stouts.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2003 tried this in a nitro can. very dark colour and a ample foamy head.Smooth with a very nice biscuit roasted malt taste.
palate was lacking - probably due to the widget but othrewise superior to guiness.

Well, I have to admit, I was rather dissappointed by this beer. However, I don’t blame it soley on the beer itself. I feel that it has a lot to do with the draught system. I’m starting to really not like it. Oh well.

This is the only bottled Murphy’s I’ve had. I actually liked the bottled version better than fresh from the tap. This is so much a clone of Guinness I challenge anyone to a blindfold test. Of course, I am referring to the Draught-in-a-can Guinness. Won’t ever pass on this one, but I’ve had better.
