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.

Black pour with a big beige head. Aroma was slightly sweet milk chocolate and lightly roasted dark malts. Quite heavenly. Flavors are all perfectly rounded, about as smooth as I’ve ever seen. Flavors consisted of chocolatey malts, cocoa, a good roast presence and a decent espresso like bitterness summed it up. Quite perfect on all levels. Silky smooth full mouthfeel, light carbonation. Booze is nowhere. Wow, I would drink this regularly if available.

Coffee, vanilla, chocolate, moleasses on the nose. Thinner mouthfeel and lower carbonation. Surprising bitterness, moderate but sort of unexpected based on that initial impression from the aroma. A very good stout.

From sample pour at local December 2010 tasting.

Bottle from Uto Beer in London. Pours a nice almost black, deep hints of ruby, with a light tan head. Strong roasty aroma with hints of coffee and a slight fussely edge. Drinks with a nice full, smooth mouthfeel without being too heavy. Strong roasted flavour with a malty edge, a balanced bitterness and a lingering roast/coffee taste after shollowing. Nice. DRINK IT!

CanIHave4Beers (4024) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Pours a deep brown (almost black) with a medium tan head and a nice thin lace that sticks around for the full pour. The aroma up front is raw malt like a freaking homebrew shop. This gives way to some coffee tones the likes of which remind me of walking downstairs in the morning while the coffee is brewing. There are some fruity hops in there as well. The flavor is nicely hoppy and bitter, somehow creamy, and plenty roasty. There is a good bit of mocha and plenty of piney and fruity hops. All together very pleasantly bitter.

arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Pours deep black out of the bottle with nice thick tan head, lacing. Aroma is dark fruit, caramel, coffee, chocolate, and smoke. Taste is big mocha, with coffee and chocolate mixing well, with some roast, burnt caramel, roasted bitter finish. Full bodied, delicious, and cheap if you can find it!

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2010
1 pt. 6 FL. OZ Bottle. Colour pitch black, foam creamy, thick, flat. Smell of bitter chocolate and nougat! The beer starts very chocolaty, roasty malt aroma, little nougat and caramel in background. The finish is heavy malt, much of chocolate and nougat, dry finish. Fabulous Stout!
