A wonderful stout that I found at Grocery Outlet in Lincoln City Oregon, just south of the Brewery. One of the best dark beers ever in my mind. I love Pelican and buy it out at Grocery Outlet, it is that good.

Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is malt, chocolate, coffee, wood and hints of fruit. Taste is medium sweet leading to a roasty finish. Nice

From a bottle. Everything you would expect from a beer of this calibre, rich roasted flavours, chocolatey smooth, freaking delicious.

Nose shows roasted malt, milk chocolate, soft bready notes.
More dry roasted malt as a flavour, some bready malt and soft booze. Moreish.

On tap at the brewery. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and light coffee, some pale malts, dough, and light bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. A solid stout.

Great stuff. Some of Pelicans brews miss the mark but this one is spot on. I have no idea how to describe brews like most of you folks. I have been drinking craft beers since the Reagan administration. I know what I like and this is great stuff.

Dark dark appearance, loads of bubbly tan head. Aroma of dark espresso beans, cacao, malts, wheat and oak. Solid flavor of the same components. Dark. Good first impression of Pelican.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650mL bottle from Slowbeer.
Good looking stout - thick opaque black body, holds a firm espresso-esque head.
Rich nose - dark chocolate, espresso, toasted oats/biscuity maltiness, some fragrant spicy hops in there too.
It’s a lovely smooth, silky ride on the body, full without being overtly rich, nice drying roast astringency.
Not overly complex, but what is there is well done - bitter chocolate, rich nutty malts, espresso coffee, touch of earthy hop spice. Firm bitterness, lingering dried leafy hop character.
