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.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, - FEB 14, 2012
Dark, dark brew, the room grew dimmer when I opened the bottle. Used motor oil colored with a tiny thin light brown head. Wonderful scent of this mornings coffee grounds and unsweetened baking chocolate with a hint of slightly burnt toast and even more subtle traces of toffee. Wow, so many flavors going on at once, where to start? Thick and chewy, great feel, coats the mouth without being cloying. I am digging this beer! Sweet roasted malts in the lead but loads of supporting cast members, prunes, mineral salt, caramel, tannins...just so much going on here. A very well made and complex beer with layer upon layer of goodness!

BierMeHoos (347) - Maryland, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Appearance is pitch black with a big, coffee colored head. Aroma is roast, char, and grain. Taste is smooth, creamy, and lush, with a full-body and a sweet, malty, semi-syrupy, caramel base followed by dark fruits. Palate is dry with lingering smoke. Overall top notch.
