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.

Black. Coffee, cocoa, roasted malts, some licorice, light on the brown sugar. Very tasty stout that I could do all night.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2009
It is black with a tan, huge and creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, cocoa milk and light licorice. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, light bitter chocolate, licorice, caramel and citrus in the slightly dry finish. It is quite nice.

tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Pours a cpuccino brown/black color with a thick creamy tan head. Laces all down the glass, and keeps a nice layer of tan cream on top. Smells like roasted coffee and mild hops. Taste is outstanding. Very creammy roasted malt, slightly sweet, with a bitter chocolaty aftertaste. Mouthfeel is good, creamy, sits on the tongue, delicious.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Dark brown pour with tan head. Roasted malt aroma with chocolate with nuts and fruit hints. Very nice! Taste is more of the same, which is a good thing. A full bodied beer with a bitter finish but its all about balance! Great beer, Im becoming a big fan of Green Flash. Keep it up!

NomDeBeer (414) - Maryland, USA - APR 30, 2009
Pours black with a small creamy tan head. Aroma is almost Belgian-like - roasted malt, dark ripe fruit, a touch of alcohol, and perhaps some pepper. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee, nuts, bread, roasted malt. ABV is well-hidden. Smooth, full-bodied palate. Outstanding beer.

madsberg (10144) - Sborg, DENMARK - APR 28, 2009
Bottled. Pitch black coloured. Brown dense lasting head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roast and light liqourice. Flavour is full of roast, chocolate, light vanilla, light liqourice and has some a slight coffee touch. Is a bit herbal and grassy. Very smooth and balanced. Medium to full bodied. Light dry. Is roasty bitter in the end with a light alcoholbite on the lips.

agillespie81 (315) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2009
Opaque black color...thick, creamy head with nice lacing. Bold malt aroma, with subtle hints of chocolate. Heavy malt flavor up front...mouthfeel is very creamy, though somewhat crisp for the style. Back is enhanced with a lingering malt sweetness. Finish has a long, robust maltiness. A very solid performance overall...the only real downside was a slight over-carbonation.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2012 (Bottle, 0.355 l, at Olutravintola Solmu, 20120714) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and light brown. Aroma had chocolate, roasted malts, liquorice and hops. Palate was full bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, nuts, ash, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty, ashy and bitter. Very tasty and surprisingly balanced heavy brew.

Old rating: 3.6 (Bottle at Hilpe Hauki, Helsinki, on 2009-04-19) Balck. Small tan coloured head. Hops, liquorice and roastedness in aroma. Full bodied and slightly oily palate with quite high carbonation. Roastedness, lot of bitterness, grass, liquorice and ash in taste. Ashy and bitter aftertaste.

Bomber. Pours a jet black with a substantial caramel-colored head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt with hints of dark garden soil (really! - but in a good way). The alcohol is barely present in the nose. The flavor follows the aroma with chocolate, coffee, cigar smoke, and a touch of bourbon in the finish. The complexity of the beer makes it seem as if its been aged for months prior to bottling. A really enjoyable beer.
