14.9-oz nitro-can into porter/stout glass

A - beautifully cascading bubbles settle slowly into a finger of creamy cream-colored head over a deep body with black appearance, red/orange highlights when back-lit; beautiful

S - slight malty smell, not much to it

T - roasted notes, slight coffee flavor, maybe a touch of chocolate; malty and biscuity

M - light for a stout, but creamy and smoother than smooth; low carbonation

O - It looks amazing and the smooth feel is impressive. Otherwise this one's fairly unimpressive. Not bad, but not impressive.

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.
