The stout was similar to Guinness, but less. The Murphy’s doesn’t feel as full-bodied. This does not make it bad though. On the contrary, if one does not like the harshness of Guinness, then they have the choice of a not-so-roasty Murphy’s.

Nice looking beer, but I drank this out of the widget-can and it seemed to kill the aroma and nice roasty flavour I was expecting from my Irish stout. Nice and creamy, but I will have to try this again, but on tap.

A nice change from Guinness; though it makes yearn for one.

Very impressive! Lite overtones compared to the other stouts. Not as strong tasting.

Flavor is alright, creamy with a hint of coffee, but the body tends to be too thin for me. If drinking stout, I’ll stick to Guinness.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2007 I’ve had this on tap and from the can with the ’widget ball’ in it. It’s wonderful! Great smell, body and flavor. UPDATE: Tried the bottle and found it to be awkward to pour. Also not as much beer to enjoy as the can.
