COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Midnight black color and rich dark-roasted aroma. Specially blended hops combine with flaked unmalted barley to give this brew a full body and a dense creamy head. All elements combine in a solid, lingering finish.

A little watery up front. But quickly after rolling it around, chocolatey, toasted nut notes arise. After a few minutes, there is definitely a distinct coffee taste. After about 5 minutes that rolls away to a malty taste. Low on the hops which I like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (1772) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2014
Draught at the Tap Room in Tillamook. Good light chocolate nose. Black, with smooth tan head. Creamy roast malt initial, very very chocolate notes / bittering enters in mid / smooth, sweet, and great balance in finish. Medium body. Very decent stout. Well made. More of a gentle roller than a tsunami.

Reynolds314 (2103) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Really rich and flavorful stout. Lots of smooth rich body and some great toastyness that doesnt come off as burnt. Toffee and coffee and cocoa are all there. Nicely done.

Bottle. Pours a near black color with a fairly thick tan head on it. Nose is quite strong and deeply roasty, with just a little bit of sourness in there and just a hint of some dark fruits in there. Taste is more regularly roasted, and more like a typical stout in that respect. I enjoy it.

Bomber from Belmont station, thanks Steve! Sorry bro, could not wait. Pours a very dark dark brown with a brown head leaving lots of coats of lace; rich and luscious looking. Aroma has molasses, chocolate, expresso, and some fruits. Taste is of sweet caramel, bittersweet chocolate some roast and some sweet fruits. Medium to full bodied and slightly rough. Finishes nicely balanced between bitter and sweet and somewhat long. Had this a couple of times a while back it still is very good. Pelican a very solid brewery needs to distribute in the midwest!

Bottle; Pour is murky brown with a one finger, fine bubbled khaki head into this glass. It retains fairly well here, with some very light spotting present as well. The nose is grains, roasty notes - espresso, toast - this is a nice brew for sure. It just meshes well, and the flavor profile reveals that. There is a hint of chocolate, espresso, very modest dark fruit, with some bready malts and spent grains present near the finish. Anyway - i enjoyed this one for sure

gramity (1301) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Dark black with a thin tan head. Lots of malt roastiness - more coffee than chocolate flavors going on. Tons of malt overpower most of the hop flavors with the finish being an nice burnt bitterness.
