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.

AWISLguy (2408) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2016
12oz can from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. Choco-bitter. Lactose. Caramel. Some light nut. Really alternates between the bitter and the sweet. A touch of the rough charcoal. Ultimately solid for style as a chocolate-y sweet stout. 13.8
