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.

On draft at pub: Appearance is pitch black with tan head, aroma of just roasted barley, flavor pretty much like Guinness, pretty dry and not a ton of flavor and no hops. Decent beer.

Draft at pub in Pensacola. Black with a fine foamy head. Toasted coffee and cocoa flavors. Not the creamiest body but still full bodied.

Dark brown. Creamy head (nitrogen). Nice chocolatey fudgey aroma. Rich, soft, sweet with an off-dry finish. Lots of chocolate, lightly toffeeish goodness.

"Irish Cream Stout." Deep almost opaque black. Brown head, lots of nitro lacing. Asphalt, cocoa, and subtle fruits. Creamy mouthfeel. Loads of cocoa, lingering dark chocolate finish. Yum.

on nitro-pours a retaining tan ring for a head that laces and black with red tint for color. Aroma is dark malt-roasty, dry. Taste is dark malt-roasty/some chocolate and coffee, dry, some earthy/chicory hops bite. Nice but not my style.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Pour black with a big creamy tan head. Basic roasted, charred aroma. Very roasted and creamy flavor. Fuller body with light carbonation. Dry finish. Not a bad beer.

I enjoyed a few of these at their Destin location. A sour stout in the Guinness tradition with a velvety nitrogen head and shy aroma, this approachable brew might well be termed stout lite. I think they have hit their obvious target pretty well and will please Guinness fans without introducing them to anything new. I prefer a more aggressive hopster at the business end of the stout kettle and won’t make any special trips back to have more, but Guinness fans will feel right at home.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - APR 25, 2008
On tap at Destin brewpub. Very light in color for a stout, dense light tan head. Light nutty roast aroma, some sweetness, a hint of lactose. Nutty on the taste, mild lactose sourness, some sweetness and a hint of roast on the finish. The body is watery to the point of being distracting.
