I am really enjoying this beer.....Been looking for a coconut infused beer since I had one (can't remember the name) years ago on tap on the beach in Florida. Great malty stout flavor....not a session beer due to the rich flavor ( has only an ABV of 4.7, though)......great after dinner choice, though.

Beam Me Up Stouty brewed by Saugatuck Brewing Company, with an ABV of 4.70% This American Stout pours out a deep brown color with a nice light brown head. The brew has the look of cola, not saying that is a bad thing. There is also a nice amount of spotty lacing to this brew, it does stick to the side of the glass. The smell is rich with roasted grains, malts and sweetness. Really mild on the hop bitterness, but it is there . So far this is a nice inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is Bold and Rich with flavors. You first pick up on the bold roasted grains and malts. Then a nice smooth sweetness of coconut and hints of chocolate. The coconut is a nice touch to this American Stout. The body of Beam Me Up Stouty is a solid medium. There is nothing overpowering about this American Stout, it has a super nice balance to it. This brew would go nice on any occasion in my opinion. If you are looking for a easy drinking stout you should look this one up. The mouth feel of this stout is Bold, Rich, Sweet, Roasted, Clean, Smooth and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Beam Me Up Stouty a 4.25 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Saugatuck Brewing Company did a super nice job with this American Stout.

Bottled 2/27/18. Poured into a tulip glass.

Pour: deep dark brown with very little head despite an aggressive pour. Tan head fades to a collar with small amounts of lacing.

Nose: coconut is definitely present but mixes well with slight rum, dark fruit, some dark chocolate.

Taste: coconut, but like nose, not overpowering. Cola, root beer, rum, dark chocolate, brandied fruit. Bread malts, some burnt toast. This is pretty complex and very enjoyable. And, I’m not even a coconut fan.

Mouth: really good. Fairly high carbonation but very fine bubbles that feel great in your mouth. Some oiliness and viscosity leave it feeling full, not watery. Again, very pleasant.

Overall: I really enjoyed this beer. I’m not a coconut fan but this is subtle and well balanced with a complex blend of flavors. Worth trying and one I’ll go back to when available.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/6/2017. Pours nearly opaque dark brown/black color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of milk/dark chocolate, coconut, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, and toasted dark/brown bread; with light notes of vanilla, toffee, smoke, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, coconut, and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of milk/dark chocolate, coconut, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, and toasted dark/brown bread; with light notes of vanilla, toffee, smoke, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Very mild herbal hop and roast bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, coconut, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark/brown bread, light vanilla/smoke, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coconut, and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice roast/hop bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, creamy, silky, and velvety mouthfeel that is great. Slight sticky hops, chalky roast, and increasing dryness. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a very nice flavored stout. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coconut, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the very mildly bitter finish. Very flavorful for the low ABV, with a great mouthfeel. Great balance of rich stout malt complexity and coconut flavorings. Well restrained and never overpowering on the coconut. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours a very nice deep black stout color but the damn head sizzled out faster than a fast food soda! Smells pretty coconut to me very sweet with some toasted malt and chocolate. Very artificial coconut taste mixed with possibly the wateriest stout flavors I ever experienced next to a Guinness Stout Nitro!

Overall this beer isn't terrible but it is coconut chocolate water with little beer flavor so I guess I hate it.

From the tap at Wings Etc. - med dark to opaque. Reminding me of Breckinridge Oatmeal Stout but less body. Not overpowering to taste, pleasant after taste with moderate carbonation. Slightly sweet light carmel to light chocolate notes with mild nutty hints. Thin head when arrived at table. A little pricey for tap at for 12 oz. but hey it's a restaurant and drink margins are profits. Would def try again but purchase in 6-pack or mix pack.

12 ounce bottle, packaged 090717. Served in a Spiegelau stout glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head that stuck around for a bit. There's a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and sweet, it mostly smells like coconut, but also some roasted malt, chocolate and coffee too. Taste pretty much follows the aroma, it mostly tastes like coconut but there's also some milk chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and a bit of smokiness noticeable. Has a nice Almond Joy/Mounds flavor. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and creamy with a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good overall "session" stout (since it's just 4.7% ABV), it's easy enough to drink and certainly worth picking up if you like coconut and/or sweet stouts! Thanks to my buddy Denis for giving me a bottle of this.

DATE: November 19, 2017... OCCASION: just celebrated Shan's birthday at the Tap House... GLASSWARE: Guinness retro pint... pours a jet-black body that crackles with bubbles around the glass... its head is off-white, almost oatmeal in color, with various-sized bubbles that are spotty and blotchy... heavy coconut couples with some rum-like accents to produce an approximation of suntan lotion... some dairy-like lactics suggest potential sweetness, while light perfume fragrances create an enjoyable sense... first sip is lively, impressing itself at the throat with a flourish, while the presence at the teeth is passive... easy-drinking for a medium-bodied beer... besides its resounding coconut, some chocolate, half and half cream sweetness, soft toasted malts, and a marshmallow-esque fluffiness... I find this one intriguing, and among a case of stouts, this is a fun start...

Beam Me Up Stouty, Saugatuck Brewing 4.7ABV. 36 IBU's
Eye: Pitch black, tan head, usual stout look, head is there, but disapears to a tiny ring.
Nose: Coconut, coconut, coconut, then chocolate and coffee.
Tongue: Way coconut heavy on the front then chocolate and coffee, dark malts on the back with a bitter roasty aftertaste. My girlfriend thinks of German chocolate cake when she drinks it. I tend to agree.
Mouth: The body is light on this one and highly drinkable.
Overall: This is really my new favorite stout. I could very easily drinks these at just about any moment, but it pairs well with certain kinds of foods. I got the stout variety pack by Saugatuck, so I will be reveiwing the other stouts as well.

Poured out a jet-black color with a small, khaki-colored head of foam. It smelled of coconut, chocolate and roasted malt. Sweet chocolate flavor with hints of coconut with a toasty kick.
