Doesn't do well in a bottle.

Doesn’t do well in a bottle.

I was so disappointed with Trafalgar Ales Smoked Oatmeal Stout that I decided it wasn’t even worth my time to apply my shitty writing skills to a full scale review.


– from Oakville, Ontario

– dark, looks like Coke

– Smokey, sour

– minimal head for an oatmeal stout which could have been due to bottle

– dogshit, total dogshit

Have a nice day.

Murphy’s Irish Stout

Don’t call it a Guinness wannabe because it’s anything but. Murphy’s Irish Stout has been on the beer scene for some time now but for the most part, has gone unnoticed by most with the exception of your typical beer enthusiasts and tryers-of-something-new. While Murphy’s has a similar 10W-30 look to Guinness, the flavour yields a sampling of rich chocolate with a less bitter but slightly dry aftertaste. The smooth consistency of the head is brown in colour and is a nice introduction to the remainder of the light-bodied pint. Consider Murphy’s as the pre-game warm up to a long night in the pubs.
