My absolutely favourite stout out there. Even though I drink other stuff besdes stout, when asked about my favourite beer it's gotta be MURPHY'S STOUT. I used to think Guiness was the shit until I tried this several years ago. Those two are indeed close in many ways, but Murphy's has the better flavor.

To me, this and Guinness are nearly dead even. But this one’s creamier and a little more coffee/chocolate like.

Murphy’s is a great Irish Stout, which is smoother and slightly sweeter than Guinness, which is it’s main competitor as the Irish Stout.

This beer is better than Guinness! Not bitter at all and really goes down easy. Also good for black and tans, velvets & Irish car bombs.

This is most likely my favorite beer. Nice and thick, dense flavour. Coffee/choclaty taste with a great head, and a wonderful balance of bitterness.

My favorite stout. I enjoy it over guiness any day. I know i'm sorry, but i enjoy the slightly lighter feel.. I have enough cans to make a table out of... :-)

Better than Guinness? Not quite, but it's close. The head isn't quite as pronounced, so it loses 'style' points.
