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.

FBG07. Nose is chocolate malt. Dark black with a thin patchy light-brown head. Uninteresting, watery. Very thin palate.

Ibrew2or3 (6530) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 6, 2007
On Nitro draft at Florida Brewers Guild Fest 2007. Poured black with tall creamy light brown (mocha) head. Light aroma consisting of roasted and burnt malts. The flavor starts of kind of neutral and slowly coffee, roasted and burnt malts come to the surface. Into the dry finish the burnt malts seem to take over.

The aroma has toasted malt and is sweet but does not have much of the coffee and chocolate that I have come to expect from a stout. The appearance is brown with a thin head. The flavor is like the aroma with some bitterness. The palate is utterly to thin for a stout.

Nice pour, served on nitrogen. Chocolate head and great lacing. Chocolate start to this one, but it turned to a choco-coffee balance as it warmed. Hops started to show up half way through, moreso than others from this non-hoppy Irish ale category, and I actually enjoyed it. Finish was notably dry, but not with overdone hops. Mouthfeel was moderate for the style, heavy overall. Nice job, competent brewing.

Draft sampler at FBGF. Pours a dark brown color with a moderate creamy light brown head that diminished slowly. Moderate roasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Average roasted coffee malt flavor with a moderate smooth finish.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - JAN 26, 2006
At the brewpub in Pensacola... Pretty average dry stout, nice chocolate is present with plenty of roastiness. After awhile out at sea, I was well happy to have this.

Suttree (4908) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Sampled at Asheville Brewgrass 2005. Dark brown, with a creamy tan head. Clean, toasty aroma, with a faint hint of vanilla. Xtra creamy, with coffee, a touch of chocolate, and smidgen of vanilla, and a dryish finish. Not bad.

MrRomero (1972) - Nolanville, USA - AUG 20, 2005
On tap at the brewpub in Pensacola: poured blak with a small tan head. Mild roastiness and chocolate notes. Full bodied and rich. Slightly sweet. A good stout.

Panzuriel (1258) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2005
Dark brown liquid with no light passing though. Decent mocha head. Nose of roasted yet tangy coffee. Taste was straight roasted malt and slightly sweet. Good mouth presence broad and full. Finish was more roasty black coffee.

They told me this took 3rd in some sort of world competition, not so sue about that. Poured very nice though. Very dark, creamy and silky looking. Smelled toasted matl lightly in the aroma and some sweetness. The flavor was primarily of toasted malt and light citrus peal hop bitterness. Very easy with a guiness style mouth feel, but creamier and with more staying power. Not too bad.
