Black color, roasted coffee malt aroma and taste, medium body, light bitter finish.

I was actually surprise when I first tried this, that it was like guinness except less bitter. This is the type pf beer my American beer drinking friends would drink if they drank stouts. I did enjoy this though, but Guiness is still the one for me

Very similar to Guiness, but maybe a little less bitter. If you like Guiness you will like Murphys, which does little to distinguish itself from its more famous cousin.

Pretty much the same as Guinness, but I think this one is smoother, but still drinkable.

i would say identical to guinness, just a little lighter on the bitterness. smooth head, goes down smoothly as well. very enjoyable!

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2009 Call this one Guinness Jr., as it seems to pay homage to its old man in taste and appearance, but to a slightly lesser degree. A very enjoyable drink. Draught can. Nice creamy mouthfeel with a nutty sweet flavor. A bit lighter on the smoky/peaty/bitter aspect than a Guinness. More of a desert stout, but there is place for it. Great beer.

On draft at Jet Rock in the Philly Airport. A mild flavored stout, less smoke and roast than competitors, nevertheless well made and very enjoyable brew.

jerohen (2276) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2004
Canned 0.5 liter. Opaque with a creamy head. Nice roasted malts aroma. Very disappointing flavour though, not nearly as good as Guinness imho. Very thin, watery and dry.

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2004
Black with a one inch off-white head. Vanilla and coffee beans dominate the aroma and flavour, a lactic-sweetness is also detected. Thicker on the palate and smoother than Guinness. Suprised me. Draught.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2004
Nitro-keg. Roasted coffeish malt with faint fruity chocolate. Better body than most nitro beers, reasonably creamy without being too thin. Better than Guiness by a whisker, but that aint saying much.
