Good solid stout. Typical irish stout with good flavor & aroma.

Not great, but if all beers were great, then none of them would truly be great. If I was a brewer, I would make something a little more creative. I think Iíd do a better dry stout, and then Iíd throw in an oatmeal and an oyster stout, and then Iíd just go crazy creative and do wicked stout and mud stout, you know just an idea.

I was not at all impressed with Murphyís in comparison to some of the other stouts I have experienced. I just had the draught can tonight and the best way I can describe my experience is as follows: full bodied, thick, but bland and lacking in flavor until the finish which is somewhat flat. Iíll take Guiness Draught next time when Iím in the mood for something like this.

Not a guy for creamy beer, but this was an exception. Also, I canít let my namesake down.

Damn good beer - but not Guinness. Slight coffee taste versus Guinnessís chocolatey taste. Also not as full-bodied and less bitter. Great beer though, just not as good as Guinness.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2005 A really nice, mild dry stout thatís a bit smoother and more drinkable than Guinness. Slainte. Enjoying it again years later, this really is a deliciously MILD Dry Stout. Thereís not that much thickness to it, despite the color. Noticeable bitterness, but not much of it. Were it not for the massive fluffy nitro-induced head, Iíd think it was a schwarzbier.

Heavy, but not as heavy as Guiness. More drinkable than Guiness
