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.

Awesome beer. Been wanting to try this one for a while and it was worth the wait. Pours black with fluffy tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate dominate throughout. So silky smooth on the tongue with a chocolate sweetness, that is very deceiving. Can’t wait to enjoy another one of these some day!

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2009 (Bottled) Very dark brown with a small, beige head. Quite complex aroma of apple fruitiness, licorice, roasted malt. Sweetish-malty flavor with lots of licorice, huge bitterness (although well hidden), pear and vanilla notes. Medium to full body with low, soft carbonation. Very easily drinkable, yet reasonably complex stout with pleasant (and clearly present) licoricey notes. Maybe slightly ashy and not so velvety on the second tasting, but still very good.
