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.

stantheman (892) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2009
UPDATED: APR 18, 2015 Right up there with the really good stouts. Thick medium brown head. Coffee and chocolate notes that are probably just very well roasted barley. Nice finish. Very pleasant overall.

April 18, 2015 on tap at John B Pub in Coquitlam. Still a great impy stout. I don’t have an Old Rasputin available at the moment for a side by side comparison, but I doubt it is the equal of that venerable brew. Damn good, though!

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Pours through the air dark but picking up deep burgandy highlites. It settles in the glass dark, burgandy covered brown with thick, lacey brown head. Thick gooey nose with tarrish roast, bittersweet chocolate, licorice, cookie dough, chocolate covered orange peel, booze, and with a touch of lactic tang. Powdery mouthfeel leaves a dusty feeling in the mough...flavors are soft, chocolatey like powdered cocoa, with notes of coffee. Bitterness in the finish is strong and the alcohol not exactly completely hidden and certainly warming. The powdery mouthfeel is a little distracting and makes the overall experience feel dirty. The flavors unfortunately don’t mimic the refineness of the nose and feel flimsy and about to fall away...the alcohol is somewhat hot and peppery, There’s also a growing garbage/rotting vegetable taste coming out. I opened the bottle around cellar temps, but im sticking it in the freezer for a few with flavors like that.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Cocoa, roasted coffee, and toasted English malts in the aroma with a grassy noble hop presence. Thick, dark brown body, huge tan head and heavy lacing create a fantastic appearance. Creamy and full bodied, a very rich beer with a silky finish coupled with a nice bitterness. Loads of milk chocolate and fudge along with nutty, roasted malts followed by molasses and plums. Great stout, great deal and I just drank my last bottle.

Bomber->honker: pours a huge creamy, lasting, brown head atop a black body. Aroma of coffee and caramel. Heavy body, long aftertaste, astringent finish. Another great product from Green Flash.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a nice thick tan head with nice thick lacing. Roasted malt, caramel, and chocolate in the nose. Roasted nuts starts the flavor, followed by an nice bitter chocolate/coffee bite, ends with a touch of caramel sweetness. Very thick and chewy. Great stout.
