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.

22oz bottle served in a stem glass. Very dark brown, nearly black, with a 1/2" of beige head. Strong smell of dark chocolate with some dark fruit and bread character as well. Taste was similar. Not picking up any roasted characteristics typical of a stout. Man this is one chocolatey beer. I was surprised that there was no hop character with this beer being from Green Flash and all. It reminded me a lot of a much dryer version of a doppelbock.

22 oz bomber courtesy of Dan. Pours a dark cola with a thick and creamy brown head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, roasted malts and fruity esters. Taste of rich malt, sweet and creamy chocolate and fruit. Very nice Imperial Stout.

Aroma is toasted oats, unsweetned chocolate. A little earthy, dank. The appearance is very attractive, dark, dark brown, tan head, strong at first, and then quickly fading. The flavor is roasty up front, almost burnt, with some bitter chocolate coming in right after, folllowed by a milk cream flavor. Decent thick mouthfeel. The finish actually is competing sweetness (oddly, it is sweeter at the finish than any other time), and ashy roastyness. (I’m not sure those are actual words, but you know what I mean.) Decent and enjoyable, yet just short of true greatness.

660ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) - shared by sayravai - thanks!
Lovely sweet roasty toasty aroma, some buttery creaminess and a touch of coconut. Lovely smooth full palate. Great roasty taste - no astringency - so smooth. A touch of coffee. Thanks Seppo - beer of the evening!

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 27, 2009
22 oz bottle shared around while camping on Memorial Day. Pours out charcoal black with a solid tan head and some light lacing. Aroma is full of chocolate, roasted coffee and some dark fruit. Flavor is all a perfect mixture of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt, with a thick mouthfeel that leaves you craving more while filling you up at the same time. Fantastic beer.

Defreni (2463) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2009
Flaske: Kulsort med et lækert cremet skum. Ekstrem frugt i både duft og smag. Meget sød, ikke så brændt men bestemt mere en impy end en normal stout.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a lazing brown head. THhe aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of chocolate and a light note of burnt malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, chocolate, and roasted malt, leading to a bitter chocolaty finish.

DerWeg (1483) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2009
Say this is good. Immediate appeal of chocolate-raisin flavors and aroma with some vanilla. Late palate is dry with bitter british hops. Possibly still better when cool. Black pour with edge of gold highlight, medium tan foam that leaves espresso rings. How the fuck is this NOT an imperial russian stout????? Ah who cares, leave that to the "Beer Style" fags to say what’s what.

Pours black with a creamy milkshake looking brown head. Aroma is coffee and nut. Milky chocolate taste. Good tasting beer.
