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.

Hmmmm I am not sure why this escapes the categorization of Imperial Stout or Foreign stout. Anyway. This is absolutely awesome! Oily black pour with a tight brown head. Aroma is very nutty-- the most nutty aroma of any imperial stout I have had-- and yes this is an imperial stout. Fuck off if you do not agree. Roasted nuts and chocolate and toffee and coffee and brown sugar. Heavenly! The palate is full bodied and creamy. Lots of rich coffee and chocolate and toffee and subtle date fruit. Slightly lactic and sweet with a moderately bitter finish. Beautifully nuanced and perfectly balanced. This was an excellent beer.

This is very smooth and creamy and wont fill you up like most stouts. Hints of roast hops with some nice hints of cocoa and molasses that dont over power. very very drinkable. ill buy more.

haddon90 (1490) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Bottle. Dark black pour with a creamy tan head. Nice, coffee aroma. Roasted malt as well. Hint of brown sugar and molasses. Seems to have a hint of espresso. Sweet molasses, nice sense of coffee. Evenly balanced, and goes down nicely. Not overpowering at all. Good stout.

Lagunitasfan (1321) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 20, 2008
On tap at Stone. Yum Yum Yum Yum Yum. Almost zero smell. Tiny hint of malt sweetness, thats it. Beer is super round and full in the mouth. Almost turns tart as it moves down. SMOOTH. Cocoa, nuts, toffee. Disgustingly dirty glass at finish, and still had dark head lingering. Super good.

Bottle from VinensVerden, Odense. Pours black with a creamy brown head. Nose is roast, hops, vanilla & chocolate. Smooth & full bodied. Oily & slick. Taste has roasted coffee,a tiny ashy note & hops. Ends dry & bitter. Very nice! This brewery is awesome!

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2008
Black with a low brown head. Beautiful vanilla aroma with further notes of coffee and chocolate. The flavours are very balanced, primarily sweet like café latte, roasted malts and oak. Nice mouthfeel too. Very nice!

OldGrowth (2754) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - DEC 9, 2008
bottle, from Raleigh Whole Foods, Good aroma, bitter sweet. Baking chocolate, soy sauce, coffee, fig. oat. Blackish brown color, good head and lacing. Bitter flavor, like aroma, though not as diverse, much more of the baking chocolate comes through. Thick body, creamy viscous mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Very nice, drank easier than the 8.8 percent look and mouthfeel were perfecxt in my eye. Love the greenflash

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2008
This poured black in color with a thick light brown head that faded away. The nose was filled with aromas of bittersweet chocolate, coffee and some fig/prune scents. In the mouth it was medium to full-bodied, rich and smooth. The flavors followed the nose with a well-balanced midpalate that finished smooth yet slightly bitter. Overall it was quite nice albeit a bit simple.

Sample from November 21, 2008 beer club meeting. Super black! No see-through on this. Brown head. Gorgeous. Roasted, woody aroma. Very woody and roasted flavor. Sweet, with a nice punch! A little bitter, too. Reminds me of a roasted meat. Superb.
