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.

zach8270 (3585) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2009
(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 (10099) - 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.

Sammy (8947) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2009
Dark bomber. Good chocolate and secondary roast and coffee in aroma. Pours black with above average carbonation and above average mouthfeel. Roast flavour builds up over repeated glasses. A bomber is a lot to drink.

sauceyhops (104) - carlsbad, California, USA - JAN 16, 2009
bottle. Pours very dark brown with a tan, 1 finger head. Aroma of dirt and roasted malts with unsweetened chocolate. The mouthfeel is pretty thin and, to be honest, the flavor almost tastes like dirt. I really wasn’t very impressed with this one.

17thfloor (2434) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle thanks to and shared with FunkyBrewster. Pours a very dark near black with a small creamy tan frothy head. Huge dry chocolatey coffee aroma with lots of molasses, a bit of varnish/alcohol, very strong. Delicious well balanced flavor, licorice, dark bittersweet coco powder, resiny hops, light fruit, a bit of coffee beans, hint of caramel sweetness, slightly woody campfire burntness. Amazing balance. Medium creamy body with soft larger carbonation.

DocHop (278) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Pours an extremely dark brown with a small, light brown head. Aroma of mildly roasted malts, bitter sweet chocolate, and some fudgey sweetness. Very sweet at first with chocolate, caramel, and nutty flavors. Very creamy body with a sharp, funny, kind of dirt-like pepper finish that I don’t care for.
