My favorite of the beers made by the Coast Brewing co. Dark with creamy head. Light body with coffee and chocolate flavors. Good beer. Unfortunately this brewery was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. aracauna (3599) - Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2005
The body verges on nitro without actually being nitro. This brewer has appearance and mouthfeel nailed in every beer. Flavor is really light enough to be a porter, but there’s a bit of char there that keeps it in the light end of the stout range. Aurelius (5332) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2005
Mild smoky aroma. Maybe it was the name but it reminded me of smoked salmon -- without the fish. Nice blance. Roasty, dry, very drinkable. The brewmaster struck a good balance between a crowd-pleaser and a technically good beer. BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2004
Not a whole lot to say about this one. Yep, it was opaque with (by the time it got to me) no head. It was served in as icy cold of a glass as I’ve ever seen. Initially there was no aroma or taste. After about 30 minutes things got marginally better. The aroma was just slightly roasty, but was definitely lacking. The mouthfeel was thin as was the finish, actually the finish was pretty much nonexistent. The in-between was casually coffe-ish and slightly roasted malty, but thats about it. Pretty poor.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2004 Dark brown to black in color with a medium sized creamy head. Aroma is sweet with notes of coffee and roasted malt. Flavor is sweet and creamy. Finsh leaves you wanting some more. Touch of biterness.
