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 Ė Double Stout.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 3, 2010
Bottle (in NZ). Nearly black with a large foamy jaffa-colour head. Dark chocolate on the nose, some roasted malt and hints of raisins. A rich malty palate, plenty of sweetness. Perhaps a bit lacking in distinct flavours - any fruitiness being swamped by the alcohol and sweetness. Some aniseed does sneak in the finish. But Iím not complaining.

BelgianBeerGal (3856) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2010
22oz bottle in Monterey. This bottle aleviated some Green Flash fears for me (recent misses). Slick, black colour with a HUGE foamy, tan head that hangs around a long time. The aroma that sneaks out from under the head is sweet chocolate and coffee. Very full mouthfeel with more coffee, chocolate and buckets of roasted malt in the flavour. Very well done.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - APR 15, 2010
A jet black pour with a delicious looking two fingers of thick brown foamy goodness. Head sticks around and leaves some lace. Aroma is licorice, alcohol heat, some dark fruit. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, hop bitterness. Finishes bitter. Mouthfeel could be a little bit chewier to be a true "double stout." Excellent beer though.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 14, 2010
Bottle dragged from the cellar where it has been resting for some time. The pour is beautyful black with a nice fluffy brown head. Spot on. The nose is coffee and mighty burned with light hoppy notes. The taste is warm and pleasent. with a medium palate thet are smooth without beeing sticky. The balance is spot on. The burned malts along with licorice and chocolate topped with some light bitterness from hops. The finish is round with lots off coffee and bitter notes. Damn this is a good beer. Im a fan... must have more. Thanx

ChrisThomson (522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2010
650ml bottle. Pours black with small amount of beige head. Nose is dark chocolate, coffee, and raisin. Body creamy with notes of dark chocolate, molasses, and some light roasted coffee. Finish is lightly bitter coffee, but lingering. Nice imperial stout!

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 7, 2010
Poured near black but no viscosity to speak of. The head was somewhere between tan and brown with spots of lacing. The aroma was mostly coffee and hops with some definite citrus coming through. The flavor was roasted malts, coffee and a touch of hops with some sweeter chocolate coming out as it opened up. Not quite medium in body. Pretty good.

Bottle (shared with Angeloregon)... Poured black with a light brown head. Dirty, earthy, dark, roasted malts on the nose. Cookie dough-like flavors with dark chocolate, oak, wood-like mulch flavors.

popery (2016) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Itís a very good, no frills strong stout. This beer doesnít try to do anything fancy. The appearance is simple, black liquid and brown creamy head. Chocolate, coffee and roasted malt flavors are strong in the beerís aroma. The flavor is rich and just nails my notion of the style. Iím not saying that itís my very favorite stout, but itís a superbly made stout. The feel is excellent, creamy and smooth.

Pours a dark chocolate black. Head is nice and lacing persists throughout. Aroma is a dark chocolate malt. Strong on the palate with a lasting finish. Big in every way.
