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.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Not sure what took me so long to try this. Great aromas of burnt malts, coffee and malt balls. Poured a jet brown with a sudsy head. Flavors of burnt malts, roasted malts, dark fruit, and dark chocolate, finishing with a spicy hop note. Silky smooth, perfectly carbonated. More people need to try this, great price for a world class IMPY.

Pours dark black with a dark brown head. Some roasted character, chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit parade around in the nose. Flavor has ripe dark fruit, coffee bitterness, slight vanilla flavor, and floral hops at the end. Finish ends abruptly with some bitterness, but overall a nice stout. Nice Belgian lace on the glass, too.

Awesome stout, good too see green flash brewing some fine beers. back when i lived in sd they had about 3 so-so beers. This is keeping with their new tradition of having high powered and high flavored beers. Solid stout, fits in with the sd brotherhood of stouts. Big coffee, moreso than the chocolates.

(bottle - 22 oz) Clear black pour with a lot of puffy brown foam. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, cream, and some toasted nut notes as well. Surprisingly light. Flavor is roasty at the beginning with hints of coffee, toasted malts, some light hops, cream, and the same nuts, almost a mixture of almonds and hazelnuts. Finishes bitter and roasty with the alcohol very well hidden.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Bottle from the brewery. Pours black with a tint of ruby and a hefty dark brown head. Smells of hazelnuts and roasted coffee. Tastes of both with additional notes of vanilla, cherry, plum, and semi-sweet cocoa. Well-balanced and robust.

BeerandBlues2 (9760) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours opaque with an average, rocky, dark brown head, mostly diminishing with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (coffee, dark chocolate, nutty), light hops (flowers, perfume), average yeast (leather) with notes of dark brown sugar, prunes, dates, and toffee. Full bodied, creamy-sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a chalky-sweet finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

ryanknock (150) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Really well rounded Imperial Stout. Luscious chocolate flavor dominates, along with oat, caramel and toffee notes. There is a slight warming in the beer, but the finish isn’t too bitter, and rather sweet, for this strong of a stout.
