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.

Bottle. Starless night colored pour with a tall, densely packed brown head. Aroma is sweet malts, chocolate, roasted notes and caramel candy. Taste is chewy malts - both sweet and roasted - along with dark chocolate, caramel, candy notes, light coffee bitterness and chocolate cake. Body is medium-full and chewy with having the silkiest smooth carbonation. Ends with more roasted malt, light coffee, dark chocolate, milky creaminess, caramel candy and more cake notes. Delicious! I’d like to try this on nitro.

Blind tasting at Papsø’s
Black color; medium creamy head. Roasted malt aroma, strangely metallic. Good body, strong roasted malt flavor but supported by some sweetness, still overall the flavor is dry; it has some roasted nuts too; it gets rounder and sweewer later. Quite good but not impressive.

Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Beautiful stout with a most charming roast complex. Dark dark dark complex that’s got tons of black wheat, chocolate, and lots of smokey earthiness and dry bitter qualities to it. Some sweetness on the swallow, but it’s malt sweetness and the malts in this one are smokey and earthy so it isn’t a too much of a wet sweetness. Great beer, nice and chickory and dark.

Has a rich roasted malt flavor packed with black coffee, chocolate and a touch of mocha. A nice light bitterness follows with a smooth dry finish. Easy to drink stout, not too complex.

5/29/2008: Green Flash Stout looks nearly black and has a brown head that creates good lacing. The aroma is a good blend of dry roasted malts (nearly burnt, but not quite; more like char), chocolate, and a hint of licorice. The flavor is a creammy blend of chocolate and roasted malts with a slight nuttiness sprinkled in. This beer has a medium-full body and is very smooth. Overall it is balanced and very good.

22 fl. oz. bottle (Alc. by Vol. 8.8%) shared by alexsdad06. Thanks Brad! Rating #323 for this beer.

bottle, pours black, medium dark tan head. Roasted malt and coffee nose. Roasted, burnt patent malt body that is so full and diverse, ends nice and roasty with some chocolate and light smoke. This is a solid RIS that is so damn drinkable.

Brewed in the USA........Courtesy of AFI96, thanks Waylo !!! Pours black in color with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, dark malts, raisins and mild coffee. Taste is also of chocolate, dark malts and dough. The mouthfeel is thin, bold, slight dry, and worth looking for. Overall, a pretty good 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.
