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.

Flaske 6 oz på Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico 5 Okt 10. Svart med et lite, lysebrut skum. Lakris & kaffe i aromaen. Oljeaktig konsistens. Litt mye kullsyre. Smaken svakt syrlig med innslag av lakris. En god stout.

Sigmund (5734) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2010
1 pt. 6 fl. oz. bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.8%. Pitch black colour, big brown head. Nice aroma of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Rich malty flavour with roasty notes, strong coffee and dark bitter chocolate, maybe a hint of liquorice too. Bitter aftertaste. The alcohol is well hidden.

Bottle, beermerchants.com. Pours beautifully treacle like, thick and black, with a deep tan head. Gorgeous chocolate flavour, hops play their part and give a great bitterness in the aftertaste. Flavours of cherry, blackcurrant, coffee and treacle come in, this is possibly the best stout I have had - so much flavour - a whopper of a beer and, for me, the stout equivalent of Bear Republic Racer 5.

daleharshman (976) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 25, 2010
22 ounce bottle purchased 16 months ago. Pours pitch black with a finger and a half of lovely mocha brown foam. Aroma of big smoky roasted malts, bacon, leather, and lighter notes of chocolate. Flavor is rich roasted malts with a hint of sweetness, creamy chocolate, some dark fruity flavors, and a hint of smoke/ash (but not as much as the nose would imply). Finish is very smooth while being lightly sweet and lightly roasty-bitter. Nicely balanced with well-hidden alcohol. Did the aging bring out the more smoky elements in the nose and taste? I don’t know, but this is a really excellent stout. (453, 407)

alebrewer (140) - Mentor, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Draught @ Ballantine, Willoughby, OH Wonderful roasted and chocolate aroma. Beatiful jet black color with dark tan foamy head. Tasting this beer completed the trifecta. Wonderful melange of chocolate, malt and hop flavors. Delicious and highly recommended.

abemorsten (3214) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2010
Shared bottle courtesy of Gunnar. Finger thick brown head on a black body. Chocolate sauce, coffee, cappuccino on the nose. In the mouth a complex of coffee, chocolate and dark dried fruits with cellar and roasted notes. Sweetness and bitterness is well balanced. Full bodied. Smooth. An absolute delight. (My rating number 500)

JMerritt (1890) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Rich chocolate malt nose, bordering on syrupy. Green coffee bean flavor, highly roasty yet with herbal undertones. Very rich, yet deceivingly drinkable. I was shocked this was pushing 9% abv, this drinks like a 5% abv stout. Dangerously delicious. 2010 Western Illinois University Performing Arts Society Beerfest.

puboflyons (2543) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 11, 2010
From the 22 fl. oz. bomber. The pour is an opaque black with a dark brown frothy two inch head that dissolves and leaves a light lacing along the way. The aroma is full of roasted to burnt chocolate malts, grains, oats, and raisin yet it is more subtle than some in its class. The body has a heavy but oily feel. The complex aroma tickles the nose with every sip for an experience that balances the taste of cooked chocolate malts with throat-soothing hops and a clean finish. Recommended.
