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.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with thick mocha head. Smell is sweet chocolate, caramel, roasted malts, dark chocolate. Taste is dark dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, sweet chocolate, some coffee. Tinge of hop bite in the end. This is really solid. In the days of summer time saisons and lighter offerings, this was a nice mix up. But a really good stout.

Licorice aroma nicely complements the tart flavour that follows. A good example of the style but many others are better.

Bombed from a trade. Deep dark and rich flavors. Lots of roasted malt and a bittersweet finish. Light hop fruit. Dark color with a tan head. Creamy texture. Nice well rounded stout.

Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Tap at Pelican Brewing in Tillamook. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is very roasty, chocolate, a little pine. Taste is medium-full, dark chocolate, dry, bitter finish. Overall, good.

runaway (78) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 9, 2014
22 pours licorice black with a thin tan head. Aroma is of chocolate malts and dark fruit. Taste is a bit one dimensional when the temperature isnít in the sweet spot, but a creamy fudge with a hint of nuts when just right. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but well balanced, not too sweet or bitter and the finish is just dry enough. Pretty solid but not spectacular.

Squizzle (229) - Ashland, Oregon, USA - DEC 11, 2014
I had two of these back to back on tap with a burger at Omars. The first one was wonderful but I should have had just a glass instead of a pint on the second. It made me too full and I had fo commit to finishing. Iím not really a stout drinker but everything from Pelican so far has been good. Like my friend said about drinking stout tonight, "hey, its winter."

Perfect pre-game beer. Purchased from Beverage Warehouse in Winooski last Tuesday evening. $5.04 for the 650 mL bottle. I knew that once I had seen they carried Pelican I would be committing a disservice by ignoring it entirely. Served at 52įF. Had let it warm up a bit before consuming.

To oversized snifter, it pours a mahogany/oaken-tinted dark brown with which a frothy cosmic latte-ringed head 1Ĺ fingers in length stood. Aromas of black bread, charcoal, Midwest hops, dried mandarin orange peels, licorice root, earl grey tea, cocoa butter, melted wax, and mint sprigs.

Tastes the same with the addition of coffee syrup, burnt sugar, aloe vera, and a pleasurable growing warmth. This is a superbly satisfying stout, but itís honestly a tad too bitter. You have to concentrate in order to get anything aside from the floral hops and darkly-kilned malts. But, I am happy with my purchase of this item. Would love to replicate this in a clone (if I can track down its ingredients)

asheft (2902) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle. Prunes and dark chocolate aroma with some scotch tape hops. Opaque black under a thin, light brown cover. Bitter chocolate flavour with some red and dried fruit and medium hops bitterness. Sweet start ends with a roasty, dry finish. Medium carbonation, medium light body, smooth and then chalky dry feel.

Muggus69 (2000) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2015
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. Itís 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. Very good!
