Beautiful head. Very little carbonation

Little smell,

Watery hit with a strong coffee taste with chocolate tones and almost charcol like roasted flavour. Very good but also oddly watery.

14.9oz nitro can poured into a pint

A- pours a deep black color with a two-finger thick and creamy khaki colored head that has great retention and leaves plenty of lacing behind

S- roasted grains, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, dark breads, coffee

T- dark roasted malt gives notes of milk chocolate and coffee up front, followed by undertones of vanilla and cream, the finish is toasted with more chocolate and coffee on the linger

M- medium body, creamy mouthfeel, silky and velvety finish, incredibly drinkable

O- one of the most flavorful stouts that I've had in the under 4%abv category while remaining smooth and drinkable. I actually prefer this over Guinness

I love this beer! If I both were available I always seem to go for the Murphy's over Guinness, it just is so smooth and easy to drink and I love the look of the beer.

Nitro-can.
Opaque dark brown, nice creamy 1.5-finger beige head, excellent retention, some laces.
Smell - rather weak, coffee, chocolate.
Taste - mild chocolate and coffee, dry and slightly bitter in the finish.
Light body, soft carbonation, utterly smooth and easy going.
