On Tap. Great alternative to Guinness. Smooth and creamy. Is a little lacking in the finish and aroma dept.

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.

Black with thick and creamy tan head. Chocolate, tobacco and floral. Slick, light acidity, cream and sweet finish. Overall: Very nice. Beautiful beer!

It took me far too long before I tried this Dry Stout. I loved it’s thick texture and heavy coffee and chocolate aroma.

colui72 (326) - HONG KONG - AUG 14, 2015
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

Irish Pub Poznan, tap. Color is black. Medium foam, but extremely creamy. Aroma isn’t very intensive, a little bit of coffee and chocolate. More chocolate in taste, but a little bit watery.

500 ml can with widget @ 4% - UK. Dry roasted malt taste although it is badly let down by the mouth feel. This very watery stout seems to suggest that more sugar than malt might have been used in the brewing process. The poor head retention (even with a widget) seems to confirm this.
