Light and smooth, very subtle. Subdued chocolate and maple undertones. Very light mouthfeel.

I actually kind of liked this one. I thought it was better than guiness. Good flavor and good body.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2004 This is just typical shaving foam nitro beer. Theres flavour (roasted malt bitterness), but its killed by the nitrogen, so it ends up being a combo of water and cream, with little flavour. Not a good stout.

Hate to say it, but this may be better than Guiness here in the states. Very good!

Drinkiní one right now. Itís an OK stout. Better than G. - I hope the beer gods donít strike me down for saying that. Hate the nitrogen caps. Iíd rather pour the head as I see fit, or have a real draught from the tap. Can I get a witness?

Like any decent Irish beer, Murphyís is best enjoyed in a pint glass in a pub in Ireland.

Smooth and creamy, this was my introduction to stout and commenced with my love for this type of beer. Could be just a little more robust, however it is still delicious (a word I rarely use when describing beer).
