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.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2003 Jet black in color, small creamy light tan head, aroma of dark roasted coffee and malts. Medium body, nice creamy mouthfeel. Cofffee and chocolate flavors, with a great burnt bitterness, very tasty and satisfying, easy to drink many in one sitting.

Pours a Dark black with a brown head. Tastes great and has a pleasent aroma. I drank this out of a shaker.

Arrived at the table with an inviting thick toffee colored head that lasted the entire pint and left plenty of lacing. Deep, thick, jet black appearance. Faint chocolately notes in the aroma with a wee bit of roasted coffee. Flavor is sweet - but not sickenly so - akin to bittersweet chocolate. Excellent mouthfeel - velvety to pin a label on it. No bitter aftertaste. Worth the trip to Pensacola to try this everyone - great establishment as well.

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.

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.

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

Aurelius (4028) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2002
A very solid and well-balanced brewpub dry stout. Roasty and fairly bittered, but without a whole lot of coffee and charred flavor. Satisfying mouthfeel, without being too heavy. A good deal at $2.50/pint, in an atmosphere with attitude. Grab a couple of buds, order an appetizer sampler platter (donít do that without the buds, cause itís huge) and have a couple of rounds!

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2004 Full flavor but lacks that stout punch though.

A happy surprise in a part of the country where quality beer is hard to find - this is as good as brewpub stouts get - opaque with a tan head - robust, roasty aroma - chewy, with a big time chocolate malt character, but just enough bitterness to balance it out - ranks right next to Heartland Farmer Jonís in NYC, IMHO.
