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.

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.

mixmasterob (976) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Black pour with a big beige head. Aroma was slightly sweet milk chocolate and lightly roasted dark malts. Quite heavenly. Flavors are all perfectly rounded, about as smooth as I’ve ever seen. Flavors consisted of chocolatey malts, cocoa, a good roast presence and a decent espresso like bitterness summed it up. Quite perfect on all levels. Silky smooth full mouthfeel, light carbonation. Booze is nowhere. Wow, I would drink this regularly if available.

Beer poured black with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasty dark malts with notes of coffee and fruit. Taste was bitter dark chocolate predominantly. Finish exhibited a pleasant burnt taste. Smooth finish. Mouthfeel was creamy. Medium body. Overall one of the best stouts I have had. Smooth, creamy, flavorful. A wonderful dessert beer.

RyanMM (415) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Coffee, vanilla, chocolate, moleasses on the nose. Thinner mouthfeel and lower carbonation. Surprising bitterness, moderate but sort of unexpected based on that initial impression from the aroma. A very good stout.

From sample pour at local December 2010 tasting.

Bottle from Uto Beer in London. Pours a nice almost black, deep hints of ruby, with a light tan head. Strong roasty aroma with hints of coffee and a slight fussely edge. Drinks with a nice full, smooth mouthfeel without being too heavy. Strong roasted flavour with a malty edge, a balanced bitterness and a lingering roast/coffee taste after shollowing. Nice. DRINK IT!
