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."

Thanks for this great extra in a recent trade, Dajtai007!

Pours like a stout should. A nice, dark brown to opaque black with a tan head. Average head which leaves no lacing and an average stout.

Smells of molasses, sweet malts and light yeasts. There's alst some hoppiness in the mix.

Black licorice, molasses a lactose quality and a slightly bitter hops presence. Nice and lightly silky at times with moderate carbonation.

Nice!

A - Clear, very dark brown colored. Nearly opaque in the glass. Big, fluffy, long lasting mocha colored head leaves a little bit of lacing throughout.

S - Chocolate, coffee, and dark roasted malts up front. Sweet bready malts are also noticeable.

F/M - Bitter dark roasted chocolate malts with a hint of coffee. Light burnt acrid flavor enhances the moderately high hop bitterness. Sweet caramel malts in the middle with a pleasant dry finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slight warming in the belly.

D - Good, big, rich, dark and flavorful. Definitely not too heavy, I could easily do another pint.
