COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not for everyone -- but if a rich, creamy, dark ale with a distinguished roast flavor appeals to your taste buds you will enjoy a pint of McGuire's Stout. To produce the sumptuous, creamy head we use a special nitrogen draft system. This robust brew is created with dark roasted barley and Chinook hops.

Tap. Dark motor oil in color with large white head. Aroma of coffee and malt. Taste of roasted coffee, barley and hops. Light and aftertaste. A decent dark beer that will go good with your beer.

Pours a thick milky black on tap with thick tan head that laces nicely. Aroma heavy on the soy and slight roasted malt. Taste follows, a back end of bitter chocolate. Very well done for the style.

On draft at McGuire’s Destin. Pours a nice medium stout brown color with a creamy tan head. Nose is big roast, some chocolate, and some earth with mild black coffee. Flavor follows: roasted malts, black coffee, and big earthy roasted malts. Medium in body and an annihilator if poured side-by-side with Guiness.

TronnyJenkins (92) - Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Tasty cream stout. Probably the best of their beers, hopefully they distribute it at some point. Malty yet roasty nose, solid body, less burnt finish than the porter.

Fatehunter (1205) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Came in a standard U.S. pint glass. Black color, thin head. Great smell, coffee, roasted malt. Rich flavor. Tastes just like it smells, roasted malt, bitter in the middle with a hint of coffee to round it out. Smooth body, low carbonation and medium bodied. Brings it all together well. Really solid stout. Easy drinking and good.
