Tsunami Stout triumphs the second year in a row among Belgian beer experts and judges

Pacific City, Oregon (November 22, 2017)—Proost! Pelican Brewing Company has received another bronze medal for its multi-decorated Tsunami Export Stout at the Brussels Beer Challenge, an international beer competition providing a unique opportunity for beer producers to compete with the best international and Belgian brewers. This is the fifth medal for Tsunami Stout at the Brussels Beer Challenge.

According to organizers of the international competition, a panel of 80 internationally renowned beer experts judge 1,250 beers from all corners of the world. The participating beers are subdivided into categories based on origin, typology and style, and are then tasted. At the end of the tasting the best beers in each category are awarded with a gold, silver or bronze medal.

Like the force of nature for which it is named, Tsunami Stout delivers a sensory blast with its jet black color and dark seductive aroma. Roasted malts and unmalted barley give this full-bodied brew its dense creamy head and distinct dark chocolate and cappuccino flavors that swell to a clean, rounded malty finish. Ingredients include pale ale malt, flaked barley, chocolate malt, Black Patent malt, roasted barley, Magnum hops, Willamette hops, pure local water and pure ale yeast.
