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.

Diogène (1067) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2009
22 oz bottle. Black with a thick creamy mocha head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, whiskey and a bit of coffee. Flavor is very well rounded with a good touch of roasted malt, chocolate, a bit of vanilla, whiskey, and alcohol. Full body. A good find.

Bottle @ Goodbar Beer Club. Black, thin tan head. Nose is roasty malt, milk chocolate, burnt sugar, burnt fruits, chalk. Flavor is roasty, some burnt rich plum sauce, toffee, burnt sugars. Solid hop bitterness. A kind of mintiness comes out at the end.

Stuedmaster (298) - San Marcos, California, USA - OCT 2, 2009
22 oz. bottle, very dark brown, nearly black with tan head. Nose of dark roasted grains and chocolate. Rather hoppy but well balanced by plentiful sweet malt. Chocolate and coffee flavors dominate but I can taste some molasses. Goes down smooth and has a lively, creamy palate. Another great brew from Green Flash.

As with any Green Flash beer the hops are prominent and I like that being that I am a hop head. It also makes the beer stand out among other stouts. Very delicious. Smooth and creamy. A black ass stout but those hops keep me smiling. It’s not classic. It’s not true to style but it is a tasty brew. A hopheads stout. Unique!

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Bottle. Pours as dark a brown as there is with a thick tan foamy head. Nose is roasty malt and lots of chocolate some malted milk notes as well. Palate is thick and fluffy with an oily finish. Flavor is heavy on the malted milk and chocolate with some nice resiny notes and a thick film that resides on the throat after swallowing.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2009
0.65 l bottle at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Black color with thick creamy head. Roasty aroma with chocolate and licorice. Sweet and roasty flavor with chocolate and salty licorice. Hint of sharp alcohol. Tasty stout, although I don’t find this as complex as complex a 8.8 ABV stout could be.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2009
A dark brown beer with a nice 3 finger head. The aroma was roasty, chocolate. The taste was roasty, chocolate, coffee, bitter-which is what I expect from a stout. Nice mouthfeel & enjoyable.
