This guy, yea I remember this guy. I was kina in the middle of a drinking binge when I stumbled across this beauty in my pals refrigerator. Apparently we drank all the Honey Lager and all of the Blue Ribbon and where thirsting for more. We stumbled upon a four pack that we had purchased at Roger Wilco the previous day. He didnt have any Glass so we drank em out of the can. Would of rather had the ice cold glass pour but beggars cant be choosey. I like my stouts just like I like my woman, dark... fairly nice head, bruises on there bodies, and burnt acne flesh. Hahahahahahahahahahaha, Wastedyouth strikes again.

As stouts go, this is middle of the road. Looks nice in the glass, with black body and a nice tan widget head. A little light and a slightly watery mouthfeel. Not nearly as bitter as Guinness.

Like guinness but a little thinner. The low alcohol content of these dry Irish Stouts is a little disappointing.

íA strong contender to Guinnes (sic) as the ultimate Irish stout.í Well, with enough money thrown into advertising, anything could be. Where was this ten years ago? But itís not bad.

dark brown colour, not as black as Guiness. Strong roasted coffee-taste, quite dry, not as smooth an creamy as other stouts. Bitter finish and aftertaste.

Not bad at all... i still prefer guinness for itís addictive qualities, but murphys isnít half bad. The dry irish stout for beginners I think... smooth as all hell, with more coffee notes than guinness, and a less pronounced finish that is quite dry. The slight tang was refreshing as well as a less pronouced hoppiness (even though guinness isnít loaded with hops, they are a bit more prevalent) For anyone who wants to try an irish stout, this is a great one to begin with before moving on.

A very dark brown beer with a very fine light brown head. It has a fine aroma of roasted malt. And a very smooth feel in the mouth with the aroma of the roasted malt. A very filling but at the same time very drinkable beer.

Pleasant roasty aroma, but very light; appearance certainly cannot be argued against: Deepest dark brown with red edges...Creamy wheat-colored head--all the more striking with the nitro-delivery system...Smoother, more balanced countenance than Guinness...Roastiness, mild hops and slight tang all in evidence...Finish is moderately dry, owing partly to the roasted malt and to some hoppiness. This combination really displays this style in its true character as a relatively light-bodied brew. If anything, I wish this had a little more substantial feel to it. Still...very tasty...surprisingly quenching...smooth and enjoyable faire.
