Poured into a nonic. I've heard this is comparable to Guinness, but am going to try my best to not let it be the middle child.

A - Pours a solid, midnight black, with about a half inch of cream-colored head that isn't going anywhere, and neither is the solid lacing just holding onto the glass for dear life. Seriously, this is one sexy looking beer.

S - Not much of anything. Very faint coffee roast, but nothing else.

T - Burnt, watered down coffee. Grainy. Underwhelming malt, and not much else at all.

M - Smooth, creamy, and almost watered-down.

O - For what it is, I'd say it has more flavor than Guinness, even if it isn't nearly as popular. Certainly worth a turn of the head, if this is your thing. It's drinkable, dangerously so since it has no carb to speak of and is notably watery.

Serving type: nitro-can

This is a very dark brown beer with a tan rich head. Murphy’s has an awesome lace that clings to the glass. Looking at this beer poured into a glass I could not wait to take a sip.

However, I was surprised and disappointed to see that the taste did not match the quality of how the beer looked. After the swallow I get the roasted malt flavor with minor coffee undertones.

When you first sip this beer you would think someone poured a cup of water into your glass. The beer is watery, and flat; like drinking flat soda. I don’t normally waste beer, but I’m thinking long and hard about pouring this down the sink.
