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.

Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. The aroma is classicly roasted with hints of dark fruit and biscotti. The flavor is rich with anise, coffee, fudge, raisins. It ends with a nice roasted bitterness. A really nice stout.

Slipstream (2156) - USA - JAN 1, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2012 From a cask at RnH. Rich, malty aroma. Lots of grain and hops in the flavor, and dark chocolate A noticeable grassy flavor comes thru too. Roasty and round to be sure, but too dry for me. It lay flat on my tongue, and was a little too reminiscent of the dregs of a cup of unsugared Turkish coffee. Rerated 2012, tried a bottle this time, liked it more than the cask. A sweet, malty, roasty stout, with a coffee, molasses, bourbon, prune, and bran flavors. AVery good.

Damico (2787) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2010
It pours dark rich coffee black with a big dark creamy milk chocolate head. The aroma is roasted malts. The flavor of roasted malts ending with bitter delicious coffee notes are laid on top of a big creamy body. This beer is smooth, rich, and delicious.

Can taste the lack of attention to detail. This can be expected from a brewer who has too many offerings. Prefer my recently tasted Left Hand Stout. Can’t just throw in a bunch of flavors.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle. Pours black, thick pale tan head, crazy persistent head here, great lacing. Nose is dying green hops, nice creamy coffee notes, green spice notes blended with roast notes. Flavours of creamy smooth roast, coffee, bitter chocolate, tight and leafy. Nice.

mixmasterob (933) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Black pour with a big beige head. Aroma was slightly sweet milk chocolate and lightly roasted dark malts. Quite heavenly. Flavors are all perfectly rounded, about as smooth as I’ve ever seen. Flavors consisted of chocolatey malts, cocoa, a good roast presence and a decent espresso like bitterness summed it up. Quite perfect on all levels. Silky smooth full mouthfeel, light carbonation. Booze is nowhere. Wow, I would drink this regularly if available.

Beer poured black with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasty dark malts with notes of coffee and fruit. Taste was bitter dark chocolate predominantly. Finish exhibited a pleasant burnt taste. Smooth finish. Mouthfeel was creamy. Medium body. Overall one of the best stouts I have had. Smooth, creamy, flavorful. A wonderful dessert beer.
