14.9oz nitro can
A - super creamy tan head holds excellent retention atop a dark brown/near black ale
S - roasted barley, chocolate, earth
T - chocolate, roasted barley, creamed coffee, earthy hops
M - velvety nitro'd smoothness, light to medium body, finishes dry with same mild roast lingering
O - it's been a long time since I had a Murphy's. It's a good Irish dry stout, but I probably won't get it again.

I'm a bit partial to Guinness but this is a good dry Irish stout nonetheless..

I really wanted to like this stout. This is by far my favorite style of beer. But this stout just didn't tingle my toes. The beer does pour a gorgeous black color with an appealing tan head that has some pretty good staying power. That's about it. The rest was relatively meh. Watery feel, strong aftertaste, nothing that really impressed me outside of the low carbonation I do prefer.

Dark opaque brown beer with a tawny foam. Smells of mild grain and chocolate. Taste is lightly chocolate, grain. Nice and smooth lightly sweet but with faint bitterness keeps it nice and dry. Lighter medium mouthfeel is creamy. Easy to drink.

14.9 oz nitro can poured into a Guinness pint glass.

A - Pours with the tan nitro surge that moves to a dark brown/black with a two finger creamy head.

S - Chocolate, roasted barley.

T - Chocolate, a vague sweetness on the finish, with some dry hops and nut.

M - Creamy nitro-smoothness, minimal carbonation, slightly watery in the mouthfeel.

O - Goes down entirely too fast, sessionable, and a classic.

My favorite Irish Stout to date. Love the silk smoothness, almost like the texture of drinking chocolate milk. The light burnt nut taste is what really puts this one over the top for me. I stopped buying Guinness after tasting this one.
