Named after our native Florida Sea Cow, the Manatee, who resides in the murky brackish waters of Florida, this beer is dark, flavorful and roasty. This beer is smooth, with a velvety mouthfeel, but at the same time the roasted malt gives you that rich FAT flavor you want from a stout.

Draft at the brewery in Delray Beach, FL. Also took a growler home. Pours a jet black with an off-white two finger head in my snifter. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa, caramel, cereal grains, and lactose. Taste is similar with a well balanced roasted malts to lactose too hops profile. Nothing too exciting, but a solid milk stout. Full body, some carbonation. Finishes strong like a malt shake. Creamy mouth feel.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Moderate roasted malts, dark chocolate, and mild sweetness throughout. Approachable, drinkable. Pretty good.

hopscotch (10180) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Draft... Pours black with a mid-sized, lightly tanned head. Good retention. The roasty nose presents dark chocolate, caramel, burnt malt and graininess. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor is a bold interweaving of charcoal, burnt malt, blackstrap molasses and pouch tobacco. Burnt, grainy, acutely bitter finish. A touch too bitter for a milk stout, but cleanly brewed and enjoyable.

En fût au Riverside Market à Fort Lauderdale. Mon verre est noir. La mousse qui flotte est brune, belle mais peu durable. Au nez, les malts sont rôtis, le chocolat est noir, le café est au lait et le caramel enrobant. En bouche, les grains noirs qui se veulent robustes se font rapidement flatter par la douceur du lactose. C’est bon. Après quelques gorgées, le lactose apporte aussi une petite touche surette. En bouche, son corps me semble être de moyenne densité. La texture est rendue bien crémeuse. La finale est assez forte, amère, un peu terreuse, chocolatée et même résineuse. Plutôt facile à boire. Bien faite. En fraîcheur et en équilibre. Un sweet stout qui a du caractère.

Poured a dark brown almost black color with aromas of light lactose, coffee, some earth and a touch of roast. Flavors were milk chocolate and some earth. A solid milk stout but wanted more out if this beer.

On draft at the Florida Brewers’ Guild Fest 2014. Pours a medium stout brown with an off-tan head. Nose is lactose, oreo cookies, coffee, and some chocolate with bits of mild fruit. Flavor is similar: lactose, cookie, coffee, chocolate, and some mild fruit. Light to medium in body and lingering sweet into the finish.

Oakes (13601) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
Sweet, dark brown, sweet, well-balanced, subtle chocolate, touch of nuttiness. This is probably their best beer, showcasing their talent for making the dark, malty stuff.

Growler from hopscotch. Thanks man. Pours a standard brown with a medium colored brown head. Smooth and tasty. Good hit of chocolate notes up front, some nice lactose body, medium roast bill. Nice effort from a very new brewery.

Draft. Nose is full of dark chocolate and roasty coffee. Taste is initially a roasted bitterness that quickly reveals some sweetness and lighter chocolate notes. The finish dries out with some roastiness as well. Silly mid palate is well done with the lactose. Pretty nice beer.
