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.

This beer pours like syrup out of the bottle. Dark and creamy with a slight brown/tan head. Plenty of lacing drapes the side of glass. This beer really looks great. The aroma smells of brown sugar, molasses and roasted coffee and chocolate. Fair amount of alcohol on the nose. This beer has a surprising bitter note from the hops, yet sinfully sweet. The body is light for a stout, but its creamy texture and soft to low carbonation stand out and make this one a pleasure to take in. This beer is self-described as big, bold & complex, and while the opposite of what I prefer in women, GFDS lives up to its billing. This is already one of my top 5 if not top 3 stouts.

Strykzone (6268) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Bottle. This pours a very dark with red. A thick two finger tan head. The aroma is big sweet chocolate and the flavor s the same. That is supplemented by spicy and mildly bitter hops. Coffee and roasted notes emerge as the beer warms and the finish was ashy. This is somewhat complex and almost cloyingly sweet.

Terminus (3544) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 5, 2011
12 oz bottle double stout poured into my bells "snifter" pours deep brown almost black with a half inch fizzy kacki head. fairly heavily carbonated for an impy stout. nose of big notes of milk chocolate, char, roast, coca, lite husky notes from the black patent malt. flavors are roasty with lots of milk choclate which helps to sweeten this one up a bit but not go over the top. very well balanced. However, its a pretty simple beer-nothing really all that special. the palate is a bit thin and has heavy carbonation, tingle on the tongue. some lite legs with an ashy finish. Decent but not great.

Pours black. Rich malty aroma, chocolate covered coffee beans... Lots of coffee and chocolate in the mouth as well, full-bodied, viscous.. Good but not transcendent flavor.. a pleasant stout.

Bottle shared at Klooster. Pours black, bubbly beige head with low retention. Aroma is mild coffee, chocolate and roast malts. Flavour has same aspects but with a caramel sweetness and some licorice. Nice easy drinking, not too extreme stout.
