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.

jkwood04 (4175) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 30, 2010
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.

Jblauvs (1347) - Chester, Vermont, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Black oily pour into a tasting cup reveals a tight tan head. Aroma is very roasty, burnt sugar, luscious dark fruit and lightly charred chocolate. Mouthfeel is dense and smooth. The roasty and fruity flavors come out the most, bitter roast and char combined with sweet dark fruits provide a rich and balanced brew. Damn.

Really good stout. Beautiful head from the tap. Good body and complex flavor. But.. watch out.. Double Stout!! I’ve fallen under the bus once or twice with the 8.8% alcohol content! Cant’ wait to track one down!

paco (527) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 24, 2010
Bottle. Nearly black. Mocha head hugs glass. Full of aromas. Thick roasted malts. dark chocolate, coffee, oatmeal and dark fruits as well. Some alcohol notes if you really dig. Big solid roasty flavor. Coffee, bitter chocolates, oatmeal and a long bitter finish. Full warm body. Very smooth and well balanced. I discover new flavors each time I have one of these.

This stout had one predominant feature upon my sampling...an extreme taste of coffee. Now do understand that I do not drink coffee and do not prefer the taste of coffee. But this stout was still very drinkable pouring a ruby brown with a dark mocha head that fades after a few minutes. You can’t taste any presence of alcohol yet a bitterness persists far beyond your sip. I was fortunate enough to get a tap sample in a growler from Bierkraft in Brooklyn NYC. www.bierkraft.com Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 04-23-2008

patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2010 Bottle. 24.5 oz. Split with Vin. Pours a solid, deep cocoa brown with a thick amberish head. Aroma of oats, lactose, brown sugar, toffe, roast, sweet malts, and light notes of pepper. Fuller bodied with a soft, clean, incredibly smooth mouthfeel. Gentle warming in the finish. This brew is insanely well balanced and poised. Excellent stout.
