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.

22 oz bobmer from Oak Tree. Green Flash has always produced some really solid beers in my eyes and this just goes on enforcing that opinion. As for an Impy Stout it’s not pushing the envelope by any means in ABV, aroma or flavor but just really well rounded overall. Poured a great looking pitch black body with three fingers of thick super tight biege head that looked more like a chocolate mousse then a the head of a beer, nice lace too!! Aroma of chocolate pudding, grassy hops, slight sugar, slight coffee grounds. Body is medium to full with a creamy fininsh. Flavor is raosty, lots of chocolate pudding, coffee grounds, very roasty,slight vanilla, slight grassy hops. This is one solid beer that is well worth seeking out.

On tap at Stone World Gardens 07-10-09. Pours a dark brown with a nice lingering head. Solid caramel and chocolate aroma. Flavor is relatively plain and not as complex as expected. There is nothing wrong with this beer, but it simply doesn’t have a lot going on. Very clean finish and great mouthfeel, if not a bit too lively on the tongue. This is a well-made beer, but there is nothing remarkable about it. I’d definitely like to try again, though.

Bottle. Starless night colored pour with a tall, densely packed brown head. Aroma is sweet malts, chocolate, roasted notes and caramel candy. Taste is chewy malts - both sweet and roasted - along with dark chocolate, caramel, candy notes, light coffee bitterness and chocolate cake. Body is medium-full and chewy with having the silkiest smooth carbonation. Ends with more roasted malt, light coffee, dark chocolate, milky creaminess, caramel candy and more cake notes. Delicious! I’d like to try this on nitro.

2016-02-19, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Black color with brown creamy head. Mild aroma of roasted nuts. Robust flavor of roasted nuts, some rye bread, light tobacco and vanilla, nice alcohol warmth; good body strength, moderately sweet, and a bit over carbonated. Also, a bit too much acidity from the roasted malts.
Very good.

2012-10-16, draught at Aces & Ales, Las Vegas, 7-4-8-4-16=39
Pitch black color with creamy head. The aroma of roasted malt is mild, and has some cheesy yeast too. Good body strength, rich chocolate flavor, strong bitterness. Very good one.

2009-06-12, bottle, blind tasting at Papsø’s, 6-3-8-4-15=36
Black color; medium creamy head. Roasted malt aroma, strangely metallic. Good body, strong roasted malt flavor but supported by some sweetness, still overall the flavor is dry; it has some roasted nuts too; it gets rounder and sweeter later. Quite good but not impressive.

Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Beautiful stout with a most charming roast complex. Dark dark dark complex that’s got tons of black wheat, chocolate, and lots of smokey earthiness and dry bitter qualities to it. Some sweetness on the swallow, but it’s malt sweetness and the malts in this one are smokey and earthy so it isn’t a too much of a wet sweetness. Great beer, nice and chickory and dark.

Has a rich roasted malt flavor packed with black coffee, chocolate and a touch of mocha. A nice light bitterness follows with a smooth dry finish. Easy to drink stout, not too complex.

5/29/2008: Green Flash Stout looks nearly black and has a brown head that creates good lacing. The aroma is a good blend of dry roasted malts (nearly burnt, but not quite; more like char), chocolate, and a hint of licorice. The flavor is a creammy blend of chocolate and roasted malts with a slight nuttiness sprinkled in. This beer has a medium-full body and is very smooth. Overall it is balanced and very good.

22 fl. oz. bottle (Alc. by Vol. 8.8%) shared by alexsdad06. Thanks Brad! Rating #323 for this beer.

bottle, pours black, medium dark tan head. Roasted malt and coffee nose. Roasted, burnt patent malt body that is so full and diverse, ends nice and roasty with some chocolate and light smoke. This is a solid RIS that is so damn drinkable.
