Very nice. Smooth, creamy, roasty, Slight bitterness at the end. Almost as good as Guinness Extra Stout.

Man, oh man...I was in heaven when I first had Guiness on tap. Believe me, you wonít go having more than two or three of these. Itís a meal all by itself. By far the best beer I have ever tasted.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2008 If you canít get the real thing, accept this tasty substitute.
The previous was my original review. Now Iíd say, Looks Amazing, Tastes Good, Finishes Watery. A decent stout.

Great when properly poured, you know - when you order a round and the barkeep says ítake a seat - Iíll bring it to you when Iím doneí; terrible at common bars who rush it and hand you a glass of cascading muddy foam; beautiful to look at and tantalizing to taste - definitely a top 5 stout - a little too dry/ashy at times but always a tempting choice. The only beer it hasít a fighting chance with is Samuel Smithís Oatmeal Stout

Always best when flowing from a frequently used tap. It really is a nice beer, but perfection is carrying it WAY too far. Murphyís kicks Guinnessí butt! (AND,yes, I have had it <Guinness> at the St. James Gate location.) Guinness is a little too bitter to beat sewwt Murphyís.

If you canít have it off the tap, this is the best way to have it then. Otherthen the beautifully creamy head, I think the main difference between the can and the bottle is that the can is a little creamier, and the bottle has a little more burnt characteristics. Cheers...

Amazing. As many others have pointed out, a very nice, creamy head with a mildly bitter, slightly roasted taste. A most excellent beer. This is the beer of Gods.

Beautiful, the beer looks and smells. Smooth yes, until you swallow. Bitter, bitter, bitter. I just donít get it, why is this the favorite amongst so many of you?
