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.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Tasted from 22oz bottle at Lush Roscoe. Pours an opaque nearly black with an average tan head that leaves a thin collar. The nose is sweet molasses with roasted malt (I can actually smell the oats), burnt brown sugar, milk chocolate, a hint of coconut, and a bit of alcohol burn. The flavor is super dark oats, dark chocolate, and coffee. The sweetness that I expected from the nose is not quite as strong.The body is full with light carbonation and a very long roasted and chocolate finish.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Bomber. Pours thick and very dark brown, opaque, with a medium-sized dark brown head. Aromas of roasted coffee and cocoa, milk chocolate, molasses, raisin, and slight wood. Bitter roasty cocoa flavor, espresso, bitter chocolate, and vanilla. Long, bitter mocha finish. Low/medium carbonation, creamy, rich, and dry. Very nice; rich, smooth, and well-balanced.

Great color, burnt coffee and toffee highlight up front. The chocolate comes out nicely as it warms up.

lusikka (7104) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2010
650 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Pannuhuone. Rated @ 23.7.2010.
Pours a deep black colour with a frothy creamy head. Moderate malty on the nose with roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. Very rich. Heavy flavour which fills the mouth with hoppiness, sweetness, citrus and dark chocolate. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. This would be a nice dessert.

Countbeer (5316) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2011 Bottle: Thanks to Milan. Big brown slow disappearing foamy head. Color is just black. Smell a lot of roasted malts, wood, coffee and liquorice. Taste a deep dark stout: lots of coffee, roasted ingredients/malts, liquorice, whiskeywood, hints of spices and dark fruits. Bit light and watery at first, but the next second the taste changes for 200% into a deep and dark stout with the complexity of an imperial stout. A long bitter coffee aftertaste. One of the best stouts out there.

harrisoni (15068) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2010
Bottle at ChrisO "I’m Trying to see the Stool" pre GBBF2010 tasting. Black, thick beige head. Sour stout aorma. Good espresso flavour and slightly harsh choc on the swallow. Some sour. But good sweetness too. Bizarre.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 23, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2011 Bomber: Pours the darkest and reddest of ruby which can only be seen with bright light under a slowly diminishing fluffy tan head. Huge dark chocolate aroma with brown sugar, dark fruits, and some hay. Starts bitter and ends bitterer with an ending of coffee and sour chocolate. Slick bodied with mellow carbonation.

No joke this is one of the finest (Double) Stout’s out there. Perfect taste and aroma; drinkability is off the charts. A must try if you can get your hands on it.
