Black color, roasted coffee malt aroma and taste, medium body, light bitter finish. Palidor19 (3186) - Brandon, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2004
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 drewdogg (62) - USA - JUL 31, 2004
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. davidflores99 (225) - Signal HIll, California, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Pretty much the same as Guinness, but I think this one is smoother, but still drinkable. bierchik (95) - lakewood, California, USA - JUL 26, 2004
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. pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2004
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 ain’t saying much.
