Sorry but this following comment is in french :

Appearance : Stout noir ébène, à la crème brune abondante et stable. Smell : Arôme fin assez typique des stouts, odeur de malt grillé, subtiles nuances de caramel.
Taste and mouthfeel : Bouche veloutée et très amère à la fois, saveur torréfiée équilibrée, très nuancée, moyennement corsée.
Drinkability : Excellent stout, encore meilleur à la pression ou à consommer chez soi en version cannette (N2)

Serving type: can

Murphy's Stout poured the perfect looking pint out of the nitro-can. Darkest of brown body bordering on black with mahogany highlights when held to the light. Delicious looking cascade on the pour that formed a 2 finger head that acted like meringue and never went away. Left big sticky lacing with each drink.

Smell is mildly roasted malts with a touch of some dark roast in there. Mild floral aroma that's pleasant along with the smallest amount of coffee bitterness.

Flavor is much like the aroma. Mildly roasted malts go far in this beer along with a small and simple creaminess that becomes slightly sweet. Finishes with a lingering dark malt bitterness.

The body is thick and sublimely creamy and smooth. Finishes dry and leaves a nice lingering bitterness.

This is a good easy drinking stout. A stout you could easily sit down and enjoy a few at a time. Good beer for a good price.

Murphy's Irish Stout is definately a quality brew. One that I have passed on far too many times. I picked some up for St. Patty's Day and I'm glad I did. A nice treat.

Beautiful creamy head on this black beer. Very malty flavor to balance out the high hop content. The roasted malt taste isn't that unpleasant either so it makes the beer easy to drink. The body of this beer isn't that heavy either which I find helpful in the drink-ability as well. If you're a fan of guinness then you'll enjoy this beer, probably better.

Serving type: nitro-can
