Black with a lite tan creamy head. Tastes a lot like Guinness without the burnt flavor. Very good stout.

A little sweeter than Guinness and just as pretty with its thick tan head and rich dark body.

Roasty. Sweeter than Guiness and not as much body. Actually this beer is kind of watery.

Nice. Has the roasty flavour of Guinness but is much sweeter and I think better. Not as thick and smooth as Guinness but nice

murphys stoudt when poured from can to a pint glass can fizz a bit if not served chilled...the beer has a great taste, but is definitely not for chugging or drinking everyday

Can nitro: Highly similar to Guinness. Actually, probably a little more maltish and roasted than a normal Guinness is these days. Smooth, creamy texture.

Not a big fan of dry stouts, but I liked this one better than guinness. Color: The darkest of brown with amber hues. Creamy tan head. Light malt aroma. Flavor: Lightly sweet with a hint of coffee, lightly bitter with a smooth palate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very light, almost nonexistant roasted aroma. Nice creamy tan head sits atop a rich chocolate-brown body, very typical of the style. Is there any damn difference between this and Beamish? Actually, yes. Murphys Irish is thin-bodied and "watery" like Beamish, but the flavor is a bit more noteworthy, with stronger roasted notes and good hints of chocolate to complement a creamy mouthfeel. These Irish draught style stouts sure don't stray from formula, satisfying the masses as an ale version of corporate radio.

Better than average dry stout. Very smooth, Had it from the can, and was impressed. Not quite Guinnes, but close.
