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.

A very dark and creamy stout. Very light hints of coffee as well as a lot of earth. Nothing sticking out as outstanding in any category, yet it was a delicious beer overall. It would make a great staple to keep in a keg if a big stout drinker.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2009 Just a fantastic beer. Poured beautifully, smelled good and I remember telling everyone in the bar how good it was as it hit me. Very rich and ripe, but quite smooth. Not too alcoholy

tripelthreat (185) - Soquel, California, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Bottle. Black body with espresso brown edges and a big dark tan head. Aroma is full of roasted malt, dark chocolate, espresso, earth, overripe dark fruit, and woodiness. Flavor is roasted, espresso, nuts, chocolate but less than in the nose, mild molasses sweetness. Medium palate, a little too thin but soft, smooth, and creamy. So easy to drink.

It is black with a tan, huge and creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, cocoa milk and light licorice. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, light bitter chocolate, licorice, caramel and citrus in the slightly dry finish. It is quite nice.
