Pitch black bidy and a creamy light brown head. Nose has roasted chokolate and coffee. Taste has an odd fruity citrus note that I can’t believe should be present. Low carbonation and light, somewhat watery palate. Pretty nice but the fruity note and watery mouthfeel is a bit of a downer.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2015 I love the creamy deliciousness of this stout! It has a bit more bite than a Guinness, but it is what it is. It’s certainly not a detriment to the flavor of this brew and I always love to spend an evening enjoying Murphy’s.

Can at the Olympic Stadium, New Zealand vs Namibia. Don’t see this so often these days, maybe I’ve just graduated from drinking in crappy Irish bars. Jet black, white head. I quite like it, slightly chocolately roasted malt flavour, just enough bitterness, quite dry.

Beautiful creamy off-white foam settles thick on Murphy’s stout. The aroma is limited to practically nothing because of its compact foam. The taste is like a typical Irish dry stout, with English licorice in moderation and good top quality coffee with a dry aftertaste.

Usual black with beige creamy head. Malty aroma, bitter coffe, malts and chocolate taste. A classic, still decent although Heineken is destroying this as well
