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.

Bottle. Black beer with a light light brown head. The aroma is lightly roasted, and the flavour richl and roasted with a bitter edge. Overall a really nice roasted and mildly rich and milky stout.

leaparsons (9949) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2011
Bottle. Near black with a fluffy beige head. Aromas are coffee and cream with ovaltine and chocolate milkshake. Incredibly rich and creamy. Flavours are bitter, rich coffee with mellow dark berries. Some lactose with nutty cocoa. Fruity and bitter on the finish. Very good.

A very nice well-balanced stout. Not chalky at all. Deep rich red black color with dark brown head. The 4 pack did not last long. Alcohol subtle, not too boozy though. Vanilla, smoke, caramel, cherry notes make a nice symphony of flavors here. Would love to have a bourbon barrel aged version of this stuff.

Bottle. Black color with fluffy hazelnut head. Chocolate, roasted malt, some citrus, dry wood, really nice touch of a campfire. Rich taste with bitter chocolate and coffee, just great. Must have this again!

Dark brown, small tan head. Sharp, hoppy, dry roasted malt nose. Sweet, fruity beginning and a bland, chocolate finish. Ends, letting you know it was strong.

Poured from the 22oz inky blackness of hell! Wow, most imperials at least show some light through my intense lamp light. Barely...perfect blackness. Quite sweet, excellent body. Excellent value. Excellent brew.

Received in trade from Prototypic, thanks for the opportunity. Pours a solid black with a fluffy smallish mocha head. Leaves a bit of lace on the sides on the way down the hatch. Smells of chocolate, roasted coffee, slight spicy hop in the background. As it warms I get some dried fruits as well. Taste is chocolate followed by some hop bite finishing with some roast and hops that linger in the palette for a while. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, thick body, light carbonation. Great stout, very creamy roasty chocolaty. Send more.

I haven’t written a review in forever...just had to write this one to say how amazed I was with this beer. Slap a $15/bomber price tag on this puppy with some fancy packaging and you’ve got a top-50 beer. For $10/4-pack, this beer is incredible. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, nuts, toffee (coffee and toffee in the same beer - you f***in kiddin me? america, f*** yeah!). Little bit of ash on the palate, slight dryness. Great f***in beer, put me down for a case.

12oz, new style bottle from grape & gourmet. pours black with a thick, creamy, beige head and great lacing. aroma is great with big, roasted malts, molasses, cold coffee, and chocolate brownie with hints of caramel, toast, vinous fruits, and earth as it warms. flavor is delicious as well with loads of toasted, dark malts, black coffee, and bitter dark chocolate with notes of dusty oats, prunes, and toffee and a hint of sweet vanilla as it warms. palate is medium bodied and silky smooth with great carbonation and a long, roasty finish. overall, an excellent stout.
