4/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

22oz bomber

used as the base for a pot of penn cove mussels, paired remainder with the dish

appearance: served in great taste taster chalice, deep ebony body - light garnet hue, thin creamy mocha cap

smell: deep rich aroma - charred malts, espresso, chocolate, smoke, sugars.

taste: The mussels turned out great, but the stout was a bit dry and bitter for my taste. espresso, char and smoke, heavy roasted malts, bitter bakers chocolate

mouthfeel: bitter from the roast, dry

overall: to-style, but not a style I'm too crazy about
