Blind tasting at PapsÝís
Black color; medium creamy head. Roasted malt aroma, strangely metallic. Good body, strong roasted malt flavor but supported by some sweetness, still overall the flavor is dry; it has some roasted nuts too; it gets rounder and sweewer later. Quite good but not impressive.

Beautiful stout with a most charming roast complex. Dark dark dark complex thatís got tons of black wheat, chocolate, and lots of smokey earthiness and dry bitter qualities to it. Some sweetness on the swallow, but itís malt sweetness and the malts in this one are smokey and earthy so it isnít a too much of a wet sweetness. Great beer, nice and chickory and dark.

Has a rich roasted malt flavor packed with black coffee, chocolate and a touch of mocha. A nice light bitterness follows with a smooth dry finish. Easy to drink stout, not too complex.

5/29/2008: Green Flash Stout looks nearly black and has a brown head that creates good lacing. The aroma is a good blend of dry roasted malts (nearly burnt, but not quite; more like char), chocolate, and a hint of licorice. The flavor is a creammy blend of chocolate and roasted malts with a slight nuttiness sprinkled in. This beer has a medium-full body and is very smooth. Overall it is balanced and very good.
22 fl. oz. bottle (Alc. by Vol. 8.8%) shared by alexsdad06. Thanks Brad! Rating #323 for this beer.

bottle, pours black, medium dark tan head. Roasted malt and coffee nose. Roasted, burnt patent malt body that is so full and diverse, ends nice and roasty with some chocolate and light smoke. This is a solid RIS that is so damn drinkable.

Brewed in the USA........Courtesy of AFI96, thanks Waylo !!! Pours black in color with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, dark malts, raisins and mild coffee. Taste is also of chocolate, dark malts and dough. The mouthfeel is thin, bold, slight dry, and worth looking for. Overall, a pretty good Stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle served in a stem glass. Very dark brown, nearly black, with a 1/2" of beige head. Strong smell of dark chocolate with some dark fruit and bread character as well. Taste was similar. Not picking up any roasted characteristics typical of a stout. Man this is one chocolatey beer. I was surprised that there was no hop character with this beer being from Green Flash and all. It reminded me a lot of a much dryer version of a doppelbock.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is toasted oats, unsweetned chocolate. A little earthy, dank. The appearance is very attractive, dark, dark brown, tan head, strong at first, and then quickly fading. The flavor is roasty up front, almost burnt, with some bitter chocolate coming in right after, folllowed by a milk cream flavor. Decent thick mouthfeel. The finish actually is competing sweetness (oddly, it is sweeter at the finish than any other time), and ashy roastyness. (Iím not sure those are actual words, but you know what I mean.) Decent and enjoyable, yet just short of true greatness.
