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.

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.
