From Dec 2006 Poured from 16oz can(nitro) avery dark brown with reddish hues and a large head of foam. The smell is very light but I can sense some roasted malt. The taste has some nice roastiness to it with a touch of sweetness. The finish has a semi bitter taste to it that is quite pleasant. Good sessionable Irish Dry Stout and I like it a lot...I could drink it all day. ;^)

500 ml can with a nitrogen widget. Pours jet black colour with thickest heavy creamy beige head. Massive overwhelming lacing in the glass. Nitrogen does wonders. The aroma was strong bitter coffee, bitter chocolate, roasted barley malts. The taste was like drinking fizzy cold strong bitter coffee mixed with a hop bite lurking on the back end. Silky texture and dry finish. Nice solid macro. But I'm neither a coffee fan nor a stout guy.

Легенда из Ирландии. Murphys имеет достаточно жженый вкус со слабым копченым послевкусием. Пиво очень плотное, не питкое.

2.9
Raistlin (449) - London, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2017
Looks really nice in the glass, with its nitro foam and black color. Aroma is kinda weak: roasted malt, a bit of chocolate and stale coffee. Has some low bitterness, and a dry finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Taste is nothing special, usual for a commercial stout: watery coffee, roasted malts, just a little sign of hops. Nothing special.
