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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a pitch black/extremely dark brown color - no light goes through it. Creamy, rich brown head. Aroma was chocolate malts, roasted. Flavor was a great deal of dark chocolates, roasted malts, caramel, touch of brandy. Solid.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2011
12oz bottle. Dark black pour with a ring of tan head. Nose of roasted malt, some coffee grounds, and lots of chocolate - reminds me a bit of chocolate syrup. Absolutely delicious - very chocolate forward just like I like my Imperial Stouts. Creamy and smooth, I could drink lots of this despite the nearly 9% ABV.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2011 12 oz bottle thanks to hopper. pours a nice black with a solid 3 finger tan head which eventually falls to a thin lacing. big oat driven nose with a touch of vanilla and light coffee. full body with layers of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, banana, vanilla, oats and roasted malts. very smooth throughout... almost like drinking a blended candy bar. sweet finish with more roasted malts and coffee. excellent stout!

Bottle. Black body with beautiful mocha colored head that lasts and laces well. The aroma is really good, slightly roasty, a bit fruity, with hints of coffee and vanilla. There is a definite and attractive hop presence as well. The flavor is perfectly balanced. Roasty, some dark and milk chocolate, some vanilla, and faint hops. Mellow creamy finish with a hint of hops and roasty dryness. Overall: this is a really spectacular stout. I really dig the lower abv imperial stouts, when flavors aren’t just overdone for the sake of "extreme" brewing.

HopMasterFlex (108) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Excellent stout for a year round release. Pours almost black, smells of chocolate, roasted malts, hops, and a little vanilla. Taste is very similar, slightly sweet yet bitter finish. I love this beer til the last drop every time. Had it on tap, cask, and bottle and can get enough. An every day beer worth having in the fridge for sure!

Poured the color and consistency of oil with a massive caramel colored head. Aroma was of sweet malt and heavy alcohol. Taste was bold at first but warmed up throughout the beer. An awesomely complex stout that is not for the novice.

Draft at Chappy’s Taphouse. Wonderful beer, the pour is opaque with a nice tan head and aromas of dark chocolate. Flavors range from dark chocolate and dark roasted coffee to hints of vanilla. Nice and roasty with some serious flavor.
