3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Murphy’s promo in Beamish & Crawford. Pours a deep brown with a half-inch nitro head. No aroma due to the nitro, very slight hint of toast. Taste is mostly sweet (toasted malt, chocolate, a hint of cinammon) with a touch of coffee bitterness. A little thinner on the mouthfeel than one would expect, with a light sweet aftertaste. Not the worst of the macro Irish stouts, but nowhere near in the league of Beamish.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thick creamy capuccino coloured head.
Aroma: coffee, cream, chocolate, bread crust, milk.
Taste: delicately balanced roasty tang and bitterness vs milky creaminess and minimal dark malt sweetness.
Palate: creamy yet dry, some rounded stickiness in aftertaste, very drinkable.
Overall: creamy yet crisp, roasty yet smooth - great taste and palate, but lacks aroma.

Brown. Thin head. Smells nutty. Pretty light. Quite nutty. Easy to drink. More of a brown ale than anything else.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: nearly opaque black with brown margins, one finger of dense creamy beige head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Aroma: toasty bready grains, faint chocolate and coffee. (7/10) Taste: low sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, soft carbonation, bone dry lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Quite a decent Dry Stout, for mass-market. I really appreciate the low sweetness and bone dry finish. Probably slightly better than Guinness Draught. (15/20)

14.9 ounce can, why can’t this be a full pint? is saving 1.1 ounces is REALLY going to affect your bottom line that much? stupid accountants, anywhoo solid beer pours dark almost black with a thick nitrogeny head, tastes good, similar to Guinness but better in my opinion. My mom uses this for cooking, I use it for drinking. Solid would be again
