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.

JMerritt (1899) - 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 (2638) - 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.

gunnar (6720) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2010
Big bottle from Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam. Pours pitch black with a nice looking 2 inch dark tanned, and nice frothy head. The aroma is top notch, with some lovely milk chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and vanilla. Taste is rich and full off the same, with coffee and caramel in the front seat. Oily and slick mouthfeel. Smooth and full bodied. Ends dry and bitter, what a lovely brew!

wedgie9 (2513) - 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 (7595) - 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 (5503) - 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.
