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 thick like 3 year old motor oil. Sweet candy coffee carmel flavor with mild carbonation. Smooth finish leaves you asking for another sip. Great brew, try one!

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 19, 2011
(12oz bottle). Pours black with chocolate head. Some lacing developing. Aroma of coffee, cocoa and maybe some dark berries. Taste is roasty bitter, but there is a sweetness that serves as the backbone to balance this beer out. Im getting a peppery aspect as well. Full bodied and creamy texture. Finish is bitter, but nice.

Bottle. Black beer with a light light brown head. The aroma is lightly roasted, and the flavour richl and roasted with a bitter edge. Overall a really nice roasted and mildly rich and milky stout.

Bottle. Near black with a fluffy beige head. Aromas are coffee and cream with ovaltine and chocolate milkshake. Incredibly rich and creamy. Flavours are bitter, rich coffee with mellow dark berries. Some lactose with nutty cocoa. Fruity and bitter on the finish. Very good.

A very nice well-balanced stout. Not chalky at all. Deep rich red black color with dark brown head. The 4 pack did not last long. Alcohol subtle, not too boozy though. Vanilla, smoke, caramel, cherry notes make a nice symphony of flavors here. Would love to have a bourbon barrel aged version of this stuff.

daje (2757) - NORWAY - FEB 14, 2011
Bottle. Black color with fluffy hazelnut head. Chocolate, roasted malt, some citrus, dry wood, really nice touch of a campfire. Rich taste with bitter chocolate and coffee, just great. Must have this again!

kidmartinek (3844) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 11, 2011
Dark brown, small tan head. Sharp, hoppy, dry roasted malt nose. Sweet, fruity beginning and a bland, chocolate finish. Ends, letting you know it was strong.

Poured from the 22oz inky blackness of hell! Wow, most imperials at least show some light through my intense lamp light. Barely...perfect blackness. Quite sweet, excellent body. Excellent value. Excellent brew.

Received in trade from Prototypic, thanks for the opportunity. Pours a solid black with a fluffy smallish mocha head. Leaves a bit of lace on the sides on the way down the hatch. Smells of chocolate, roasted coffee, slight spicy hop in the background. As it warms I get some dried fruits as well. Taste is chocolate followed by some hop bite finishing with some roast and hops that linger in the palette for a while. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, thick body, light carbonation. Great stout, very creamy roasty chocolaty. Send more.
