Doryman's Dark Ale
Pelican Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
This new special edition of one of our favorite cult classics, Doryman’s Dark Ale is the beer that launched Pelican Brewing Company on their lauded way with their first GABF gold. It’s one of the first beers they ever brewed, and for Pelican’s 21st birthday, they’re bringing it back, much to the joy of Doryman-deprived fans.
It’s easy to see why people get misty-eyed over Doryman’s -- it’s got all the dark, complex flavors you could want in a refreshing body. Aromas of dark chocolate and cherries waft from a mahogany pour. Take a sip and your palate floods with flavors of roasted hazelnuts, thyme, and lemon peel with a hint of caramel sweetness. A light mouthfeel balances out the flavors of Cascade and Mt. Hood hops, leading into a crisp, dry finish.
As collectible and hard to find as your favorite childhood Pogs, Doryman’s is a limited edition, one-off release. Seasoned beer geeks and ‘90s nostalgia junkies are putting themselves on the brewery’s waitlist to get it by the case, but skip the trip and the hubbub -- grab your discman, pour yourself a glass or two of Doryman’s, and party like you're turning 21 again too!
