My favorite stout. I enjoy it over guiness any day. I know i’m sorry, but i enjoy the slightly lighter feel.. I have enough cans to make a table out of... :-)

Compares to Guinness in many ways. I had this on tap and loved it. Quite dark with lots of flavor.

Good favor, but a little light for my taste. Had it out of one of the tall cans which produced practically no head. I will re-review it after I find it on tap.

a nice smooth stout, seems to be a quality cross between guinness and bodingtons

Not as good as Guinness.

Good stout, but a bit thin. I’ve given it the benefit of the doubt because I was drinking the Nitro bottles.

I am partial to the Murphy’s subtlety, and this format serves it as well as a portable style can. Glass always treats a beer better than metal (with the exception of the keg, of course.) Hint of caramel and, perhaps, oysters in the taste.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2008 Tap@SomePub. Chocolate, roasted, sweet aroma with a hint of cola. Black color, light brown head, good lace. Sweet chocolate, light bitter, hints of cola and licorice, more roasted and bitter finish even some burnt malts in the very finish, medium body. Highly dinkable, easy, pleasant.

Bland but drinkable.

A good Stout, but I like flavored stouts much better.
