September 8th, 2012 - Green Flash’s "Goddess" Coffee Stout lived in a separate tent, and served joyously alongside other darker brews during Greenflash’s outdoors, parking lot summer event. As such, it became a popular destination (and beer) closer to the end of the day when palates semi-fatigued from so many other good tastings were still sensitive to harsher, darker flavors. This stout is dressed like so many others: a deep, dark attire with a silky film of bubbles on top, and a heavy nose of raw coffee beans. The taste is packed with coffee, too, and good coffee at that. It tastes like the depth and complexity of well roasted coffee (for which I am still very much a green beginner) like those served and sold at Birdrock Coffee. It’s sticky and slightly sweet, balling up in the back of the throat, where a little more bitterness balances out that good, natural set of dark fruit tones.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sehr intensiver, weicher toffeeartiger Geruch, vermischt mit Nougat und leichten Röstspuren.
Antrunk kurzzeitig süßhpfig, dann sofort schokoladenmalzig weiterführend. Im Mittelteil starke Nougat- und Schokoladenaromen, welche trotz ihrer Dichte sehr harmonisch wirken. Süßlich-fruchtig, wiederum enorm schokoladenbehaftet und mit angenehmer Bitternote abfließend.
Ein Bier von beindruckender Dichte und Vielfalt. Äußerst gut gelungen. Einfach nur großartig!Test vom 20.9.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Draft @ BT. Black pour with ran head. Aroma of roasted coffee and some sweeter malts. Flavor is extremely roast, like drinking coffee rounds, in a good way.

Bottle that Craig very kindly picked up for me at GBBF, Thanks Craig. Consumed 05.09.10 Pours black with a tan head. This is silky smooth in the mouth with creamy coffee, a nice hoppiness and a lovely warmth from the well integrated alcohol. Rich and full flavoured, but easy drinking there is a bit of bitterness there, but the coffee lingers. lovely stuf. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8
