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.

I wish I had read your reviews of this beer before buying a six pack! At any rate, a 12-ounce can is poured into glass. Black color with slight amber tinge when held up to light. Big tan head with lots of lacing as you drink down the glass. The aroma isnt much of anything, although its somewhat sour, somewhat saly (like salt and vinegar chips) and definitely smokey on the nose. The flavor is ashes, vanilla, chocolate-covered cherries, with a lingering salty-sourness. The mouthfeel is slight creamy from the lactose, although too thin and lacking in typical richness of this style of beer.

Can, aboard Carnival Triumph out of New Orleans. (Got the last one - display can; big mistake). Pours black, no head. Flat, sour, burnt grain, gross. Poured most of it out. Got hold of bad can, likely old and spoiled considered the can was squeezable. Took a pic. Will re-rate when I get a fresh version of this.

12oz can from Homer. Maybe this is supposed to be called Sea Cowboys Sour Milk Stout? Poured a dark black thinner to medium body with a smaller fizzy light beige head. Aroma is not good. Notes of pickle juice, sourness milk, bad chocolate, burnt toast, old coffee. Flavor is the same plus some brown paper bags. Medium body with stronger carbonation and luckily a quicker fading aftertaste.

A nice semi-bitter sweet stout. Has that lactose-milky flavor and feel, but also some burnt sugary stuff in there to balance out. Medium thick black appearance with a dark mocha head. Creamy texture. I would like to try this one on tap/nitro.

Grumbo (2555) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Can on board the Carnival Splendor. Pours almost black with a tan colour head. Aroma of lactose, light coffee, malt and chocolate. Fairly sweet with a light roasted bitterness. Medium bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish was oddly salty.

needs some work. the flavors are light and the foam as well. not a sin but it doesnt seem refreshing. seems loosely related to what is described. there is a bit of dust and cocoa and on a good note a dash of salt that worked into the name, and, strengthened a bit, all around?...i see something demonstrative. this beer could still be made into something.
