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.

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.

2/3/11. On nitro at the Destin location. Not quite opaque black pour with reds under the light and a creamy khaki head. Dusty, creamy chocolate aroma with a bitter grainy old coffee flavor that lingers like tannic grains. Meh.

Black as night, but a weak head. Real watery. Smoky overtones, but poor palette degrades it.
