Similar to Guinness with more of a coffee flavor. Very solid beer. Tilt your glass and pour it slow..

tap @ big city, happy 21st to my roomie who i threw a party for... nice smooth stout, a little watery, very guinness-like

Very watery, but not unlike a Guinness. These regular stouts are just a little to blah for me nowadays.

This is one of the best looking beers out there, almost black with a great white head that looks great in my pint glass. Unfortunately, not much else. Slight roast malt aroma. Flavor is hampered by too much carbonation; just feels really airy. A slight coffe and chocolate flavor that disappars without enough bitterness.

Big, fat, creamy, tan, perfect head. Lace was unbelieveable. Color was dark brown with ruby highlights. Smell is very very nice. Caramel, coffee, mocha, malts, chocolate, vanilla, tootsie pops. Smells great! Now onto the bad part. This shit tastes terrible. I found it to be bearable in small little baby sips but once I took a huge sip I felt like spitting this stuff out. Tastes like carbonated day old coffee.

A damn good beer. Very similar to Guinness. Has a little bit of a chocolate aroma and is absolutely opaque. Nice, clean and slightly bitter aftertaste. The head is very creamy and is great. Drink up!

Very dark, ruby tinted beer with an off-white creamy nitro head. Roasty aroma, dark malts. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Light chocolate, roasty character. A light sourness and a roasty finish. Quite tasty.

Dorwart (2609) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2004
(Pub Draught Can) Nice thick 1+ inch head of dense, creamy, malted milkball colored foam. Settles beautifully. Head lasts the duration of the drink. Aroma of roasted grains, burnt sugar and a bit of chocolate. Color is black witha hint of dark brown around the edges. Flavor is smooth with dark chocolate and coffee. Slight bitterness in the flavor also which is nice. Finish is creamy and smooth and leaves a nice roasted bitter aftertaste. A good dry stout.

A great beer. My rating is surely colored by some intriguing memories I associate with Murphy’s from a draft, but I enjoy it from the can too. Chocolatey taste, not at all bitter. The foam tastes almost creamy. This is one to savor.

Dark with a bit of red. Creamy, with a bit of roasty, can find a hint of chocolate. Some believe that it is better than Guiness, I cannot bring myself to think it is anywhere close.
