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.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a lazing brown head. THhe aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of chocolate and a light note of burnt malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, chocolate, and roasted malt, leading to a bitter chocolaty finish.

DerWeg (1431) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2009
Say this is good. Immediate appeal of chocolate-raisin flavors and aroma with some vanilla. Late palate is dry with bitter british hops. Possibly still better when cool. Black pour with edge of gold highlight, medium tan foam that leaves espresso rings. How the fuck is this NOT an imperial russian stout????? Ah who cares, leave that to the "Beer Style" fags to say what’s what.

abcfan (677) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 15, 2009
Awesome beer. Been wanting to try this one for a while and it was worth the wait. Pours black with fluffy tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate dominate throughout. So silky smooth on the tongue with a chocolate sweetness, that is very deceiving. Can’t wait to enjoy another one of these some day!
