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.

Skyview (5866) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 30, 2007
From a 22-oz bomber, via traded with kenb pours an opaque dark brown brew with a fast dissolving tan head that leaves behind a ring, some film top and a good lacing. Aroma of dark bittersweete chocolate, dark pitted fruits, roasted malt with some flowery hops. Taste is medium to full bodied, some carbonation, thick, smooth and creamy with flavors of dark chocolate, some dried coffee, molasses and a touch of vanilla. Finish has a slight hop bitterness with a dark roasted coffee aftertaste. Very tasty! Thanks again Ken.

Pours a nice rich black with a tawny head, lots of plums and dark chocolate on the nose. The flavor doesnt come in as sweet as I had expected, but rather as a very well rounded dry coffee-toned stout Mouthfeel is nice - heavy enough to but rich but light enough to be drinkable. Dry hop finish parts the touch of molassas through the midrange. Nice even if not as "big" as I had been expecting.

Bomber. Deep dark chocolate and coffee aromas. Its opaque brown/black. The tan head quickly ringed. The ring leaves lace tatters. Medium to full bodied. Moderate carbonation. The flavor is coffee, burnt toast, chocolate, lightly salty. Hoppy resin seems to permeate the brew. The finish is super dry, and the bitter of coffee and hop continues forever. Whew!

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2007
Black beer, brown head. Black chocolate aroma with lovely base malt richness, vague pine and mint Yank hops, fruitcake, relatively moderate burnt toast, light soy sauce and a distinct Sabayon kind of egginess - weird. Lean yet rich base maltiness is quickly overcome by nice round roast and big bitterness which surprisingly doesnt taste like American hops. Choc-coated coffee beans and raspberry esters like Wig & Pen Imperial Stout. Basically its the PNW IPA approach to stout, and I like it a lot. Loads of intensity but remaining very drinkable. But whats with that egginess? Anchors beers have it too. Onya Linc!

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2007
Bomber. Pours opaque black with a thick and lacy tan head. Lightly sweet aroma of chocolate and coffee. Full body and moderate carbonation. Sweet chocolate taste with molasses and nuts. Piney hops show through at various points without ever competing with the roasty bitterness. Tasty!

22. Thanks, BitBucket! Awesome stuff. Been waiting to try this one for quite a while. Pours jet black with a thick, moussy tan head that falls to film eventually and leaves minimal lace. Big roasty chocolatey nose, with maybe a slight whiff of cherries when ya first crack the cap. Velvety rich body and nicely placed carb lead the attack, plenty of forward roast and chocolate follow assertively right along. Soft piney hop bitterness lingers on the finish. Great stuff. They need to find Washington distro for this one.

6/18/2007: Pelican Tsunami Stout is near black in color with a two-finger, dense, foamy brown head. The aroma is sweet chocolate and roasty with hints of coffee and lightly caramelized sugar (just like the crusty top of crme brle). This is probably the best aroma of any foreign stout that I have had so far. The flavor has lots of sweet chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, smooth coffee, and hints of walnut and vanilla. Its a bit on the stronger, but alcohol is not outrightly noticeable. The finish tastes like roasted coffee finish and there is a long-lasting, dry espresso bitterness and dark chocolate after taste. This beer is is very smooth and creamy and feels rich and full in the mouth. It goes down frighteningly quick and easy for a beer of this complexity and alcohol content! Tsunami Stout is an excellent beer. I highly recommend it!

22 oz bottle from trade with kenb (Oct 2006). Thanks again Ken. I really appreciate it! Rating #127 for this beer...

On tap at Uber. Dark black w/ big creamy brown head. Fairly heavy roast. Smooth chocolate flavor. Nice sweetness. For 7%, it packs more than you would expect.
