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.

Completely black color with hazelnut head. Aroma of coffee, brown sugar, bread, dark chocolate, smoke. Taste is a bit bitter, then light sweet and then light bitter, really interesting. Amazing balance. Thick body, oily texture, soft carbonation. I would buy this again it’s quite special even my girlfriend thinks its delicious.

JFGrind (1872) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Straightforward full bodied Imperial Stout with malts the focus. No over the top bitterness, bourbon, or quirky ’West Coast’ additions. Old World indeed.

Poured a deep black with a very nice, lacy head. A bit thin in the mouth but the alcohol well hidden.

minutemat (1976) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2015
330ml bottle from Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours deep black with thin foamy tan head. Aroma is medicinal molasses. Taste is much of the same with additional liquorice and, as such, is not really my kinda stout. Smooth mouthfeel and does grow on me after a while, but essentially not my cup of tea.

mtdewa1 (416) - rome, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Black oily pour. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, vanilla, caramel and roasted malts. Taste is chocolate, caramel and malts. Velvety and smooth. Well built stout. Very enjoyable. Not overwhelming with alcohol which made it easy to drink.

monk191 (1181) - California, USA - FEB 28, 2015
A nice stout overall. Pours a deep black with a tan head. Smells of coffee, vanilla, and toffee. Taste is very thick with lots of butter coffee, some vanilla and a smoky finish. Had in the bottle.

Duchammer (99) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle poured motor oil black with a quick diminishing head. Aroma had hints of toffee and toasted biscuit. The beer had a nice semi sweet chocolate with bitterness from the hops and roasted barley.

troyc (2791) - Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2015
[Bottle] Inky black pour with a lasting cap of deep brown head. Almost a nitro look to the foam. Heavy roasted and charred malts in the aroma. Coffee and bitter chocolate come through strongly. Flavors of ashy malts, burnt toast, coffee grounds, bakers chocolate and some anise. Earthy hops and some alcohol are evident in the finish. Dry overall.

Dark rich brown body with a light tan head. Aroma of liquorice, wood, and leather. Taste is slightly bitter and hoppy with strong notes of coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle from Old Town in Louisville. Poured into a stemmed tulip. Pitch black color with a beautiful milk chocolate head. Nice aromas of coffee, leather and chicory. Creamy mouthfeel with a nice long dry finish. Excellent Imperial Stout.
