Darron Welch, Co-Owner/Brewmaster at Pelican Pub & Brewery, recently joined forces with Jamie Floyd, Owner/Brewmaster of Ninkasi Brewing Company to collaborate on a brew in memorial of Danny Williams, who recently passed away.

Danny’s Black Gold is one of a series of Danny Williams memorial brews that are being brewed across the country, with the Pelican - Ninkasi collaboration representing the Pacific Northwest. Lauren Salazar of New Belgium Brewing in Ft. Collins, Colorado, is the organizer of the memorial brews.

Danny’s Black Gold is a fusion of the signature stouts produced by each brewery, Tsunami Stout from the Pelican and Oatis Stout from Ninkasi. After marrying the two formulations, the beer was boosted to Imperial strength and then fermented with Rochefort Trappist yeast, yielding a unique, inspired beer, an Imperial Oatmeal Belgian-Style Stout!

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Draft at Belmont Station in Portland, OR on 30 May 2013. Poured a pitch black colour with a dense tan head. Full aroma of roasted malt, big dark chocolate and whiskey. Dense, creamy mouth feel with bold flavours of coffee, molasses, cocoa and port. Finishes with lingering black treacle, burnt malt and definite note of Belgian yeast. Top stuff.

Had at the mountain brewers festival. There are notes of yeast, chocolate, oats, roasted malts, slight sourness, it is very good. It was highly talked about at the festival and after sampling it I understand why. Well done!
