From a can I bought in Rodos old town in Greece. The pour is creamy and almost nitrogenated with the aid of the widget. a smooth and creamy flavour with heavily roasted malts and a solid toasty profile overall. Similar to Guinness but not as good.

At this multiple times on tap at the Legends bar in Halifax airport. Pours a dark brown with creamy nitrogen powered head. I nice easy drinking stout with light chocolate malt and toasted nuts. Finishes off nice and dry, and not much bitterness. Perfect before any flight.

massingasetta (150) - München, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2014
Farbe, Geruch und Optik sind im klassischen Stout Stil, schön Schwarz, rauchig mit leichten Schoko und Röstgeruch. Schaum ist ein Traum, cremig wie bei einem Latte Macchiato und fest and anhaltend. Geschmack ist hopfig, malzig und leicht rauchig, etwas weniger bitter wie Guinness. Einstieg ist stark malzig, lässt etwas nach und geht etwas ins süssliche. Auch ein Murphy’s ist eine flüssige Mahlzeit, etwas schwer für typische Helle und Lager Trinker. Fazit: Was Stouts angeht gibt es drei Irische Schwergewichte: Guinness, Murphy’s und Beamish. Wenn man in Irland lebt kommt man als geselliger Mensch nicht um die drei rum und man will ja mal alles probiert haben. Mein Favorit war immer Murphy’s.

przyjemny, czekoladowo, kawowo, palony zapach. w kolorze czarne, ale przejrzyste pod słońce. genialna, trwała, drobna i aksamitna piana w beżowym kolorze (azot). po nalaniu piwo całkowicie odgazowane. w smaku paloność, dość kwaśne, z posmakiem czekolady i kawy. wytrawne. bardzo aksamitne. niestety, lekko żelazisty posmak.
