UPDATED: JUN 5, 2014 Very dark pour with a beautiful creamy head. Smells of dark chocolate and coffee and roasted malt. Big coffee front followed by chocolate and a bit of sweet malt. The downside about this stout is it seems a bit thin.

Full flavor. Dark brown, almost black with a beautiful thick foamy head. Similar to any guinness.

From a fairly chilled, canned 14.9 and following the directions from the container’s other side, poured into an english pint glass (that I’d washed quickly under cold water) and an inch and a half of tarred ice cream beer foam that is most flavorful happens. A stout that stays inside your deepest taste buds.

Douberd (2596) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
Nitro can at home, 440 ml, poured into a big Guinness glass, ABV 4% Dark bronn colour, almost black, with one finger of tan head on top, thick, begins bubbly but eventually becomes steady and creamy, with very good retention, leaving heavy lacing on the glass. Aroma of light roasted malts, faint cocoa, something herbal andor peppery. Taste of oats, milky chocolate, roasted malts on the finish, sweet with a light bitterness on the aftertaste. Body is medium thick, carbonation on the low side but it works, creamy and smooth on the palate. Nice beer, honest stout.

agent_persik (437) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 24, 2014
Black color, small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and licorice. Taste has similar notes - dry sweet with mildly bitter roasty finish. Medium body, creamy texture and very soft carbonation. Decent stout, simple but highly drinkable.

Gurthnar (2166) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 24, 2014
Can. Aroma roasted, lightly sourish burnt. Nice lava effect, almost black colour, very soft creamy stable head. Taste is mostly roasted, plain, but nicely drinkable. Hint of stale hops, metallic, but at an agreeable level. Dry roasted finish. OK beer.

What can I say. I love it. Classic reliable stout and Murphy's got me started on stouts. Have a pint and enjoy... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

patricks110 (1758) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
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 (293) - 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.
