Murphy's Irish Stout

The dark brown, near opaque, Murphy's Irish Stout has been a favorite of the beer community for a long time however it is recently (over the last 10 years) also gaining some crossover support from your average Guinness drinker. It may not have the advertising and distribution budget of Guinness but if your a fan of Guinness, your going to love Murphys.

The pour is extremely rich with a small, maybe half inch, tan head. Excellent lacing with the smell of roasted coffee beans and toast. This nitro beer appears to contain more carbonation than Guinness yet just as smooth and easy to drink.

This brew is not as extreme as my favorite nitro brew, Youngs Double Chocolate, but very good none the less.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5
