COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden naked oats mashed with dark crystal and robust roasted malts create a luscious black brew with a satin smooth finish. Layering UK Target hops in the boil adds a pleasant, earthy complexity while higher fermentation temperatures enhance the overall flavor with fruity esters. An old-world style, done the Green Flash way. Big, bold, flavorful and complex – Double Stout.

eczematic (1322) - Adelaide, - MAY 10, 2012
my kind of stout - like coopers stout ramped up a few notches. fruity and tarry and bitter and thick, with a nice subtle leafy hop background, without the citric alcohol/cohumulone kick in the finish most US stouts go in for. the fruitiness is provided by the yeast not the hops - plums and pears rather than grapefruit and pine. it all hangs together and blends seamlessly in the mouth. lovely stuff, not trying too hard and not that complex but doing the basic stouty flavours really honestly and really really fantastically well. just lacking a really amazing 3D aroma. things are looking good this winter with this and black bear stout readily available round here.

Pour from bottle I got at Beer Mongers in Portland, Oregon 11 months ago. I bought this to age as an experiment to see if it’d get any better. Don’t remember the original fresh bottle I had so I really don’t know lol. Appearance is dark, licorice black with small head, little lacing. Nose is pretty subtle with some light malt, leather, alcohol, tobacco and a grassy other thing I can’t tell. Palate is light leather, with some subdued roasted chocolate coffee bits. Pretty nice balance. Still has good carbonation. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, really coats the mouth. A pretty nice beer all in all.
