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.

Aroma is rich with roasted barley and oats. The taste is a bit unexpected and very roasted. Powerful and robust flavors. Lots of roasted malt and burnt bread crust. Very nice beer.

split this one amounst some friends and into snifters the brew produced a good two finger tan head that stuck around and the lacing was great. The body was a typical stout black. O my this was a surprise I got some huge chocolate notes from the nose. Truly memorable in a lot of ways I really didnt expect to much from this brew but it did surprise me. The flavor was nice a chocolaty with a light roasted bitter not as much hops as I thought I would find coming from a west coat brewery even that was refreshing for a change. The body was perfect for a stout with great carbonation. Like I said this brew was a surprise. I did miss this brew when it was gone, and it was better than a top 100 brew that we cracked in the same sitting

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 7, 2010
22oz courtesy of peteinSD. What a cool dude- sent this in a box for no reason so that I could try it. Pours near jet black with a massive dark tan head that is ultra rocky and leaves the lacing of God. Aroma of green apples, oxidized red apple sections, big acetaldehyde. Taste is a little tart, full of green apples, is a little bit tinny, and gets coffee roast and bakers chocolate in the finish. Has the lighter body of a stout and is not too intense even though abv wise it is verging on imperial. Looks great but has a few critical flaws.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - JUN 7, 2010
Very nice imperial stout. Pours deep brown with a thick dark on it that quickly goes down. Really quality malts and the hops are really quality as well. You can really taste the roasted malts.

Mora2000 (5855) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle. 2008 vintage sampled in May 2010. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is a nice mix of roasted malt, chocolate and smoke. The flavor is pretty heavy on the chocolate with some roasted malt. The mouthfeel is a little too thin for me and is a tad bit watery. Medium carbonation.

22oz in an English pint glass. Pours black with a lasting, tan head. Aroma of raisins, caramel, and dough with some coffee. Really sweet, and full bodied. Initially has flavor of dark fruits and coffee, but then the earthy hops become apparent. Has a short but sweet coffee finish. A really good stout.
