After reading the description, I’d say this one tastes like a cross between a porter and a brown ale. Either way, it’s pretty good. Nice color and flavor. I’m definitely becoming a big fan of Lost Coast - and they have some very cool labels to add to my collection. pineypower (3347) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2005
Pours out a nice dark brown with a small head. The aroma is of chocolate and some sweet malt. The taste isn’t overlly complex, but its still good with notes of spice, chocolate and some little hop on the finish. Nice warming brew to drink on a cold night/ TheBeerGod (6253) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown body. No light coming through this. Smallish tan head. Nose is light roastiness with light cocoa. Light spice notes as well. Seems a bit thin to me, though. Taste is sweet with light spice, some fruity hints, faint hops, light nuttiness and some hints of cocoa. Light roastiness as well. Body is medium with some creamy notes. Finishes with more spice, ripe fruit, light cocoa and nuts. SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JAN 3, 2005
On tap at Liar’s Club. A moderate brown in flavor and viscosity. Pretty thin and drinkable with some roastiness mixed in. Decent, but one was more than enough for me. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2004
Some cin., clove in the nose. Rich lagery malt. Some chocolate. Well balanced.

Part of the BIF X-Mas package from shippos, this beer poured out reddish brown with a cloud of suspended yeast particles in suspension. The head was about an inch thick, off white in color, and did not hang around for too long. The aroma was roasty malt with notes of coffee and chocolate. The taste was like a thinned out porter, sweet and roasty with toffee, chocolate, and a touch of weak coffee. Hops were quite low in bitterness and mostly lurking in the background. Despite the lack of complexity, the alcohol was quite well hidden, and the beer was much easier to drink than its strength suggested. herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - DEC 24, 2004
Chestnut brown pour with a thin, quickly diminshing head. Nutty nose with slight roastedness. Thin body, watery. Flavor has some roasted bitterness but really is one dimensional. Average at best hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2004
On tap. Poured a dark brownish/red with a small off white head. Lightly sweet. Subtle and light tastes and aromas. Malts and a little nutty. Creamy and smooth body. ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2004
2004 bottle. Cloudy brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is a bit spicy and malty. Flavor is malty and nutty. An OK brown ale, but that’s about it. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Drought: Smells spicy, hoppy, and a little sweet. Dark brown color. No head, no lacing. A few particles. Tasted of a spice (maybe cinnammon and corriander? Pumpkin?). Flavor was a bit weak. Also had some hop notes. Tingled on the tounge. Overall, ehh, nothing I will try again.
