3.28/5 rDev -13.5%
Poured dark brown with a dark tan head into a fluted Murphy's Irish Stout pint glass. The head is thickly condensed and leaves a lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smells a bit like toasted nuts. There's a slight alcohol smell, but only faintly and in the background. There's a maltiness to it as well.
Tastes bitter with a nice finish. It's not a good drinking beer but it's a nice sipping beer. The aftertaste contains a slightly sour note that lingers, but in a pleasant way.
It would have been nice to have a better mouthfeel--this needs more body and a richer creaminess to keep up with the taste. This is the only disappointing aspect of the brew.
I'm happy with this, and I'm happy my wife bought a four-pack, but I won't be seeking it out again with so many good similar beers out there.

Pretty black but slightly reddish when held up to a bright light, with a decent head and sheets of thin but glass-coating lace.
Smell is more like that of a heavier imperial stout, heavy with syrupy dark fruits, some coffee and chocolate, some molasses and brown sugar, some roasted, some burnt characteristics. The taste somewhat follows but it's not as strong tasting as it is smelling. I would say that for me the taste is more appealing, actually. It's more balanced on taste; the aroma is kinda on the too sweet, too much dark fruit side.
Drink wise it's very nice, a good stout that's something of a meal, but isn't overpowering. I am a big fan of stouts in the 6%-ish range, and this one is pretty good. Overall I don't think it's world class, but I'd certainly drink it again, and may have to try some of their other beers that I haven't tried yet.
