    Nice brown pour, not at all murky, medium light beige head, nice lacing. Nutty aroma then the chocolate malts kick in, more as it warms, cocoa, slightly roasted malts, light earthy hops. Tastes the same as the aroma with a more pronounced light chocolate dominance. Earthy and nice, subdued.

    Dark brown to almost black color with a moderate head. The aroma contains some nutmeg, chocolate, and licorice. The flavor is similar to many brown ales with a dose of chocolate thrown in for good measure. The aftertaste contains a hit of powdered cocoa. Overall this is a very nice beer. Color me impressed but color me more like a stout, thanks so much.

    Fantastic name, label resembles a Picasso on meth...but I digress. Lost Coast appears randomly at one local establishment, sort of odd yet interesting. Light brown pour with a filmy head and spotty lacing. Heavy chocolate aroma with deep roast. Medium bodied, wouldn't mind a heartier content for a winter release. Crystal malt o'plenty with cold coffee, milk chocolate, and a trace of lightly burnt toast.

    Smells sweet brown, and malty. Yeah, here it is, A good beer to relax with by the pinion fire. Pours pretty yeasty with lots of floaties. Yes, I tried not to pour 'em. Taste is certainly lacking. Lots of carbination but nothing else. Damn. WTF did I buy a 6'er of this???

    Poured a rocky, tan head above a clear and dark amber body. Odd aroma, one that is NOT welcome here. Can't put a finger on it, just not pleasant. Flavour, mouth, and finish were better, quite drinkable actually. Some spices, etc., but not the best from this brewery.

    Only had the Downtown Brown about 2-3 times, but comparing this to that I believe this is a little darker. Maybe hoppier too. I like the balance quite well. Spices are working for me too. Flavor is roasty, caramal and chocolate malts. A solid seasonal winter ale. I haven't found a Loast Coast beer that I haven't liked. Looking forward to trying this again.

    Solid, simple beer. This isn’t really a great brown ale, but it’s still good beer. Light chocolate malt and spicy hops are evident in the aroma. The beer is a rich copper color with a creamy, ecru head. The flavor is a mish mash of sweet malt and bitter, spicy hops. Mouthfeel is a tad thin. Good beer but not terribly interesting.

    A deep brown colored ale with reddish tinge. A beige colored head. Big and foamy. Some hang time. Not long enough. Light, blotchy lacing is left behind. The aroma is light. Some bready malt. Medium bodied ale. Gentle carbonation. The taste is mosty of caramel malts with nutty notes and a gentle grassiness. I liked it.

    Crap label but good beer.
    Super dark red / brown (nice colour) beer with a small, smooth brown cap that quickly goes to rim only, pretty fine lacing though! The aroma is comprised of dark fruits, dark powerful caramel, notable fall season spices, a hidden chocolate and weak coffee mix, sweet plum - just smells thick all around. The hops try to make the first impression but fizzle out to the big, roasty mix of malts, good malts, slightly sweet, slight spice - maybe licorice - pretty nice overall. Fairly smooth with good carbonation, medium to medium full bodied, good faint spice blended in with tasty malts for the finish. Man, that label sucks.

    Received in a "Winter Brews" box from World Market as a Christmas gift. Pours a reddish brown color with a small tan head, no lacing. Smells like a weak IPA. Nothing really stands out but a mild hop and malt aroma. It's a very thin, malt driven ale with very little character. As a hophead, I was anticipating more hoppy flavor. Not much going on here. Might need to try again. A disappointment. This brew fell far short of my expectations.
