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.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a med/lg beige head with decent lacing. The aroma is roasted malts, milk and dark chocolate, and cocoa. The flavor is roasted malt, dark chocolate, light coffee with cream, and a touch of dark fruit. The mouthfeel is med-full and is smooth, almost slippery going down. I am a fan of their hoppy beers and this did not disappoint.

Pour was dark black color and had a great head. Aroma was very roasted but not a good smell, chocolate. Flavor was much the same with a good malt flavor but something was off in there.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Darker brown color with a hefty aroma of roast, chocolate, and coffee. Flavor has the roast and complexity of an impy stout but is smoother and more drinkable than most. Nice feel. Best non-impy "standard" stout since Kalamazoo.

Taverner (1088) - San Ramon, California, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Bottle from Perry’s Livermore. Decent straight up stout. Pours black with tan head - quite a bit of it too. Nose is roastiness, and smoke - very much like fresh roasted coffee. Some chocolate notes in there too. Fairly dry, reminds me of Ten Fidy, without the alcohol burn.

TimE (3120) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 21, 2009
Pitch black color with a dark brown head. Dark chocolate, dark fruit and baked cake give this beer depth from beginning to end. Rich, but not sweet, nor cloying. Decent bitter finish. Moreish. Give me more.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2009 Bottle. Pours a pitch black brew with cream-like texture - awesome! Lovely thick and dense brown longlasting head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, espresso and fruity yeast. Flavour is bitter and roasted with sweet chocolicious malts. Nice balance. Notes of licorice aswell. Smooth and creamy texture. I really enjoyed this one..

At brewery, brown hue with thick head, sweet chocolate aroma, thick and creamy texture amplifies the milk chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and woody tones, very drinkable and delicious!

Roasty and silky, full bodied and very heavy. I love Green Flash, but this was kind of dissapointing. Not that it was at all bad, but I thought it could have a bit more flavor.

Elwood (3046) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Pours almost pitch black with a small tan head. The first scent I get from this one is alcohol and not in a good way. It has a very heavy alcohol presence in the nose. Very dry on the palate. Definite taste of peat, burnt malt, some coffee. Reminds me of an islay scotch. Overall this one seems pretty unbalanced to me. After reading all of the reviews, this one did not live up to expectations, but I will try it again just to make sure I didn’t get a bad bottle.

Bottle, #461. Black pour with minimal head but some good lacing. Strong roasted malt aroma and complex flavor including some roasted coffee. Thick, good beer.
