Ok I picked up both let’s compare....



Murphy’s: jet back with a creamy head, 4 pack pints $4.99. Scents of dark roasted malt, sweet chocolate, and cream. On the mouthful flavors of those dark roasted malts and dry bold chocolate dominate this heavy and thick mouthfeel.




Guinness: $14.99 for 8 pack pints, jet black creamy head. The nose detects sweetness with an ale like aroma, no chocolate or roasted flavors... is this really a stout? Mouthful is thin. Flavors of sweetness like an English pale ale, alcohol, and a slight hint of baking spices on then backend.




Verdict.... MURPHYS.... wtf has Guinness done with their beer??? Used to be much thicker and tasty.

I'll take Murphy's over Guinness any day. Guinness has always been thin for a stout (imho), and has a metallic aftertaste whether I get it can, bottle, or draft.

I dont care much for it. Only on SPD.
I had good luck last year, turning one into a pastrami on the smoker... wish I had saved the recipe for the rub I mixed up, didn't bother since I was just winging it but then it turned out pretty good... plenty of recipes online though, just make sure to soak it in water long enough to get the salty taste out of it
