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.

Pours an opaque very dark brown with an average-sized tan head. Roast malts, coffee and cocoa powder in the aroma. The complex flavors follow the aroma with a nice balance of sweet and hop bitterness. Creamy and smooth.

I love hoppy stouts. It’s like the best combo of an IPA and an imperial stout. Chocolate, marshmellow, orange, perfume, flowers, carmel, toasted malt, and toffee. Yum

Bottle : The aroma consists of chocolate, caramel, and faint roasted coffee. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a small beige head that quickly fades to a film. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate and light caramel. The finish has some mild roasted coffee. Full bodied will somewhat lively carbonation for a stout. Overall a little too malt heavy for my tastes, but still solid.

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.

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.

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 (3365) - 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!
