3.9/5 rDev -3.9%
Dark dark brown. Almost black. Forms a thin dark tan head that sticks around. Some light lacing. Aroma is roasted malts and coffee with a metallic note to it. Flavor is heavily roasted malts, dark coffee, chat, and some brighter hops on the finish. Heavy medium body with appropriate carbonation and a moderate hoppy bitterness. A decent beer: fairly aggressively roasted and hopped for the style, but it works.

4.13/5 rDev +1.7%
22oz bottle with "1" on the top (maybe indicating 2011?) poured into oversized wine glass.
A: Half an inch of tan, thick, creamy head, which is pretty uneven around the glass– thicker in some places than in others. Lots of lacing with big bubbles in it, great looking all around.
S: A rich chocolaty smell really dominates things at the beginning, and is quickly joined by the aroma of toasty, roasted malts– there's just a hint of a burnt character to them. Complementary coffee, smoke, and earthy (maybe even slightly piny) hops add depth.
T: Big, roasty, bitter flavor controls things here, accented nicely by the chocolate which has elements of both dark chocolate and cocoa. Coffee, vanilla, licorice, and a subtle, earthy hop bitterness all supplemental.
M: Crisp body; lighter than I expected considering the ABV but contributes to a lasting, dry finish that really brings some of the bitter flavors of the beer through. Smooth and moderately carbonated.
O: My glass went down pretty quickly, and considering that I don't have easy access to this beer wish that hadn't been the case. Will have to resist the urge to buy this at the expense of other, brand new beers next time I have the chance to pick some up.

4/5 rDev -1.5%
22oz w/ "10" handwritten on cap, I think October 2011. Into a snifter. Pours a nice deep black w/ a thick crackly mocha head that settles pretty quickly to a thin film.
Aroma is dark, bitter roasted malt and rich chocolate. Some dark fruits too.
Taste is highly bitter and roasty, but somehow also dry and drinkable.
Mouthfeel is smooth and dry. Vanishes off the palate, leaving just a slight bitter aftertaste.
Overall a really solid, if not especially complex, stout from Pelican. Closest I think I've come to a "session stout."

Written "10" on the cap
A: Pitch black, with a thick tanned foam that stays fluffy for a long time. very nice.
S: very faint whiff of roasted coffee, caremel,
T: mix of roasty malt, some prune, some tartness. It finishes with a lingering coffee-like flavor. slight alcohol warmth after several sips.
M: not too viscous, but oily enough. feels very light when 7% alcohol is considered.
O: very impressive stout. I consider this a sipper.
