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.

GMCC2181 (1554) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Bottle from StateLine... Looks great... Huge mocha colored head. Black in color. Nose of some creamy milk, roasted malts, and chocolate. Taste is slight smokiness, lots of burnt roasted malts, chocolate, some bittering hops to keep it well balanced. Texture is creamy with a medium carbonation. Overall: A nice simple stout to sip on a snowy night.

tmoreau (2905) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Bomber to a small snifter at Lunar Brewing Co. during a local, cellar tasting event. Poured a black/brown with a touch of ruby highlight, ample brownish tan head foam, and wavy lacing. The aroma was roastiness, espresso, and rich malt. The flavor added a little smoke, and hidden alcohol, behind the full body, and nice silkiness to the mouthfeel.

joeneugs (4143) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 7, 2011
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 (2218) - 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 (2871) - 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.

Bottled @ Beer Temple. Dark black color, short brown head. Aroma of dark chocolat, mocha, hint of roast. Thick creamy texture. Smooth dark chocolat all over the place, great bitterness. Smooth, creamy, balanced. I just love this stuff!

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.
