Tsunami Stout – Pelican Pub & Brewery (2012)


BLC Says:
Pelican Pub & Brewery Tsunami Stout is a year-round offering from this coastal Oregon pub and brewery. We haven’t really seen anything from Pelican Pub & Brewery in local stores, but we were able to obtain a few of their bottles through the magic of the internet. Look for a post on that experience and more reviews from it coming soon.

This rich, black brew has a light caramel head that settles into a thin foam cap and ring around the glass, leaving abundant lacing in its wake (nautical references). The aroma is mostly made up of chocolate and espresso flavors, giving this a mocha feel. A bitter hoppiness breaks this up nicely and prevents the scent from being too sweet or one note. Tsunami Stout has a creamy quality to it with a slight hint of syrup. The smell of this stout is an accurate representation of what is to come with the taste closely following suit, with a bit more complexity. There is a smooth mouthfeel which is nicely complimented by the medium level of carbonation, giving this an almost fluffy quality. The sip starts off with a sweet, chocolate malt flavor followed by roasted coffee and finally finishing on a hoppy, bitter note. This is a stout that will please hop fans but should also hit the mark for those interested in roasted and malty qualities as well. keep reading...
