Default Murphy's > Guinness

Murphy's is soooo much better than Guinness, just has less name recognition. Agree/disagree/vote now!

I think they're both about the same. Not bad but, not all that good.

A thousand stouts can top both of them. I'll take a Young's Double Chocolate!

My disdain for Guinness is well documented here.

For a little irony, however, my last stout got a little more roasty than I meant, and damned if it doesn't taste a lot like guinness.....

Guinness vs. Murphy's is a reasonable debate (I'll take Guinness...I think it has a little extra "bite" that makes it more sessionable, plus it's more widely available on tap).

There's no comparison between either of those and a sweet stout like Young's or a monster like Fat Dog. Different beers for different situations, I'd say.

I'd rather Murphys than Guinness. A couple reasons.

1. Guinness is more mass produced, there for quality varies (IMO)

2. Guinness around here comes in 14 ounces cans for almost 8 bucks, Murphys comes in 16 ounces cans for 6.50 accross the street from me.

Other than that, I'm really just a go against the grain kind of guy. Been to alot of bars and only found Murhpys at one. I'll get a Guinness if all the bar has is BMC.

Guinness Extra Stout is GREAT though.
