22 oz. bottle, very dark brown, nearly black with tan head. Nose of dark roasted grains and chocolate. Rather hoppy but well balanced by plentiful sweet malt. Chocolate and coffee flavors dominate but I can taste some molasses. Goes down smooth and has a lively, creamy palate. Another great brew from Green Flash.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
As with any Green Flash beer the hops are prominent and I like that being that I am a hop head. It also makes the beer stand out among other stouts. Very delicious. Smooth and creamy. A black ass stout but those hops keep me smiling. It’s not classic. It’s not true to style but it is a tasty brew. A hopheads stout. Unique!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours as dark a brown as there is with a thick tan foamy head. Nose is roasty malt and lots of chocolate some malted milk notes as well. Palate is thick and fluffy with an oily finish. Flavor is heavy on the malted milk and chocolate with some nice resiny notes and a thick film that resides on the throat after swallowing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.65 l bottle at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Black color with thick creamy head. Roasty aroma with chocolate and licorice. Sweet and roasty flavor with chocolate and salty licorice. Hint of sharp alcohol. Tasty stout, although I don’t find this as complex as complex a 8.8 ABV stout could be.

A dark brown beer with a nice 3 finger head. The aroma was roasty, chocolate. The taste was roasty, chocolate, coffee, bitter-which is what I expect from a stout. Nice mouthfeel & enjoyable.
