If you’re like me and enjoy both stouts and porters, this beer would be an excellent choice. I find it to be a bit more bitter than typical stouts, but it has the heaviness of most stouts. It came in a can with one of those "disks" (which is usually a strike against the beer), but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Czarne z ciemnobrązowymi refleksami i beżową, drobną pianą. Aromaty ciemnego chleba, palone, lekko słodkie. W smaku ciemny chleb, trochę kawy. Wytrawne, niskie wysycenie, bardzo, bardzo pijalne.

Draft. Pours black with a beige creamy head. Aroma is subtle malts. Doesnt smell like much. Kinda like Guinness. Taste is light, toasted malts.

Aroma of coffee and burnt bread. Chocolate appears in the taste. It is easy to drink, as if it were air-milk. Aftertaste pleasant slightly dryish.

Murphy’s Irish Stout ma ciemnobrązową barwę i ładną, drobną, beżową pianę. W aromacie kawa, paloność i odrobina czekolady. W smaku również kawa na pierwszym planie. Wtórują jej nuty palone i czekoladowe. Trochę zbyt wodniste, ale lekkie i pijalne!

Jabic (590) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 16, 2017
Ar: Pineapple, red apple; milk chocolate and malted milk balls; a bit of moss and toffee. Ap: Dark brown with a light, airy nitro head, colored tan; head retention is very good, leaving a large crown of froth. T: Toast and lightly roasted coffee; medium-low sweetness; ash, red apple, and pineapple mid-palate; high bitterness, but quite smooth; finish is char, light toast, and bitterness. P: Medium-light body with low carbonation, a typical nitro smoothness; finish is dry. O: A tasty dry Irish stout on nitro; British yeast profile with nice accents of coffee, chocolate, and ash; bitterness is firm and lends structure to the beer; looks and smells solid, as well.

Can. Near black in colour with nito carbonation. Aromas are of sweet chocolate and a bit of cherry pit. Flavors are of dark chocolate, ashy dark roast coffee, chalk, and a bit of cookie-like malts. Light bodied and somewhat watery. Decent overall, but so much more mild than I remembered when I used to drink this in my pre-rating days.

440ml widget can. 4.1% abv. Pours out deep brown, almost black, no highlights. Creamy beige coloured nirto head. Nose - dark chocolate, heavy roast and caramel. Taste - coffee, caramel, dark chocolaye and roast. Dry end. Nitro body and texture which I happen to enjoy. This was always my favourite canned dry stout. It destroys Guinness if we are to make comparisons.
