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.

Blom (831) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2008
Black with a low brown head. Beautiful vanilla aroma with further notes of coffee and chocolate. The flavours are very balanced, primarily sweet like café latte, roasted malts and oak. Nice mouthfeel too. Very nice!

OldGrowth (2595) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 9, 2008
bottle, from Raleigh Whole Foods, Good aroma, bitter sweet. Baking chocolate, soy sauce, coffee, fig. oat. Blackish brown color, good head and lacing. Bitter flavor, like aroma, though not as diverse, much more of the baking chocolate comes through. Thick body, creamy viscous mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Very nice, drank easier than the 8.8 percent look and mouthfeel were perfecxt in my eye. Love the greenflash

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2008
This poured black in color with a thick light brown head that faded away. The nose was filled with aromas of bittersweet chocolate, coffee and some fig/prune scents. In the mouth it was medium to full-bodied, rich and smooth. The flavors followed the nose with a well-balanced midpalate that finished smooth yet slightly bitter. Overall it was quite nice albeit a bit simple.

ansermadide (1502) - Kyle, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2008
Sample from November 21, 2008 beer club meeting. Super black! No see-through on this. Brown head. Gorgeous. Roasted, woody aroma. Very woody and roasted flavor. Sweet, with a nice punch! A little bitter, too. Reminds me of a roasted meat. Superb.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 Bottle (22oz). Shared by blankboy with me, garthicus and GregClow. Very deep brown pour with a solid creamy light brown head. Big aroma here - solid deep roast more than matched by beefy resin bitterness - a little lactic tartness in there too, just for giggles. Another excellent stout that is simple and well done - dry, herbal bitterness which matches up well with heavy roast coffee and chocolate, enough tart cherry or other fruit character to add the impression of another dimension. Surprisingly soft mouthfeel, decent body, only mildly carbonated but who can mind, the finish takes its time and there’s a little dry acidity left on the tongue to make you want more - very good, actually seems understated, for such a brawny stout - the underlying hoppiness really makes this one.

Pours pretty dark sludge shade of black. Impressive creamy tan head. Aroma: malted milk, very upfront hops, rich chocolate. very hoppy flavor. Charred and hoppy goodness. Very bitter aftertaste. Not spectacular but I still think this is pretty cool. And I really like how this is right in between a regular and an imperial stout.

HonkeyBra (3247) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2008
I guess a double stout is somewhere between a regular stout and an imperial? Pours Dark black with nice, big, frothy tan head. Big chocolate coffee nose. Nice roasty chocolate flavor, and lots of dark fruits with dry finish. Great thick mouthfeel. I had trouble finishing the bottle, though.Not to say it got cloying, because it didn’t., but the flavor became a bit too much. Probably should have shared it with a bra.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Rating from a bomber procured at the Friar Tuck in Bloomington, IL. 8.8%? How big does a stout have to get afore it’s "imperialized"? Be that as it may - This pours a deep, dark brown, nearly black, with a modest brown head that laces in sheets. Very nice aroma of roasted malt, milk chocolate, oats, and a light hit of hops. Smooth. It tastes of chocolate and dark roasted malts with just a touch of oats. Sweet, roasty finish. Nice.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - NOV 21, 2008
This wasa nice smooth stout. There was a good chocolate/roast aroma with just a little of the oatmeal slickness you can get with oatmeal stout. This was a very tasty beer.

Vas19 (313) - Maryland, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate with a touch of hops, not very powerful overall. Flavor is roasted malt and chocolate with a very roasted finish. Nice body. Solid stout.
