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.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Poured from the bottle that was sitting in my basement for 6 months. Jet black pour with foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted grains and cocoa. Flavor was rich in roasted chocolate malts, espresso, cocoa, and a big dose of bitter hops. Full bodied with a smooth texture. A complex and satisfying stout.

Praetorian (86) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 25, 2008
Black in color with a medium sized light brown head with decent lacing. The aroma is of coffee, molasses, oak, and black licorice. The flavor is smoky with notes of roasted coffee beans, chocolate and a touch of vanilla on the tail. The finish was sweet. The texture was very creamy. Its a very good stout, Im a fan.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 24, 2008
Bottle. Pours thick with a deep black body and a dark brown head that fades to a ring that sticks with great lacing. A bit glass coating. Probably should be a foreign stout by its robustness. Aroma is chocolate cocoa powder, flowery with dry molasses, anise and vanilla. Taste is smoke and roasty with light notes of vanilla, licorice, and leather. Not too bitter, very few hops. Creamy mouthfeel and light bubbles.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2013 Initial Rating Date: 12/24/2008. From a 22 oz bottle this poured a jet back with big tan head and good sticky lacing. Nose of burnt malts, chocolate, coffee and ripe fruit. Rich creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is much the same as the nose, with additional coffee and some brown sugar notes.Nice dry bitter finish. For beer this robust it was quite easy to drink. There is a subtitle on the bottle which says Double Stout. This is a rerate from January 2013. This beer has gotten even better during the past 5 years. As dark and rich as ever, it seems to have more chocolate and ripe fruit. I found this wonderful and need to up the rating a tittle bitl

blankboy (6052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2008
<i>My bottle (22oz) shared with GregClow, HogTownHarry & garthicus.</i> Pours a very deep ruby-brown, almost black, with an average size diminishing creamy light-brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Flavour of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, a good amount of hops and a nice roasty bitter finish. Good mouthfeel, good body. Right on style, this is very good stuff!

DuffMan (6752) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 21, 2008
Hmmmm I am not sure why this escapes the categorization of Imperial Stout or Foreign stout. Anyway. This is absolutely awesome! Oily black pour with a tight brown head. Aroma is very nutty-- the most nutty aroma of any imperial stout I have had-- and yes this is an imperial stout. Fuck off if you do not agree. Roasted nuts and chocolate and toffee and coffee and brown sugar. Heavenly! The palate is full bodied and creamy. Lots of rich coffee and chocolate and toffee and subtle date fruit. Slightly lactic and sweet with a moderately bitter finish. Beautifully nuanced and perfectly balanced. This was an excellent beer.

This is very smooth and creamy and wont fill you up like most stouts. Hints of roast hops with some nice hints of cocoa and molasses that dont over power. very very drinkable. ill buy more.
