COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden naked oats mashed with dark crystal and robust roasted malts create a luscious black brew with a satin smooth finish.

An old-world style, done the Green Flash way. Big, bold, flavorful and complex Ė Double Stout.

Terminus (3566) - 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.

Aroma: Roasted malt, milk chocolate, bitter dark chocolate, coffee. Faint earthy and piney hops, as well as additional earthy notes.

Taste: Huge roasted malt, espresso, bitter dark chocolate, grassy hops quite prominent for an imperial stout.

Overall: Big chocolatey nose. Big bitterness on palate. Velvety mouthfeel.

kermis (11038) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2011
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.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUN 9, 2011
Bomber. A black beer with an average siozed, frothy. mostly diminishing tan head. The aroma is moderately malty and lightly hoppy, with notes of roasted grain, oat, milk chocolate, with minor notes of coffee, floral. dark fruits and alcohol. The flavour is heavily sweet, lightly sour, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/creamy texture, soft/lively carbonation, very long finish, with heavy bitterness, moderately alcoholic. The aroma is the weakest department of this stuff, it doesnít have any off notes, but itís not so powerful. Heavily roasted malts, to the point of being charred/burnt in the mouth, but not annoying, at least for my liking. Strongly bitter in the aftertaste. Very nice mouthfeel/structure, perhaps excessive alcoholicity for not being the biggest impy around, but thatís another minor point, Really solid.

degbert (1681) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours oily and opaque with a medium to dark brown head. Head is high and whipped-cream like, and leaves lace. Nose is cocoa, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla -- really, really appetizing. More cocoa on the tongue -- it reminds me of a mildly alcoholic traditional cocoa, without the sugar. Rich, full, and pleasantly oily on the tongue. Wow.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Black with a really thick and dark brown head. Aroma is of creamy chocolate - almost like chocolate milk. Taste is chocolate in the front with the feel of it being creamy. The finish is some bitter, burnt flavors that mix well with the chocolate flavors in the taste. Nice.
