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.

1/6/09 notes: on tap, Wurstkuche. Appearance is black and viscous with a tan head. Aroma of roasts, coffee, and background hops. Flavor is rich and minerally. There is black coffee, dark chocolate, and a certain soil-like character. Overall, this beer has many great attributes, notably its lush palate. However, inexplicably, it doesn’t come together nearly as well as other Impy stouts that I have grown to love (Peche Mortel, Storm King, Ten FIDY, etc).

thewolf (11378) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2008
Bottle, bought at Vinens Verden, Odense. Pours fat oil black with a fine, large, creamy, cappucino head. Sweetish aroma actually, some chocolate and vanilla. Some slight coconut notes as well. Then a lot of coffee and roasted malts. Very nice. Lowish carbonation, nice mouthfeel. Flavour is incredibly well-balanced, lots of nice dark chocolate, some coffee and some definite bitterness. This is a world-class stout. Not extreme in any way, this is just perfect in balance. Just the way I like it.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Poured from the bottle that was sitting in my basement for 6 months. Jet black pour with foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted grains and cocoa. Flavor was rich in roasted chocolate malts, espresso, cocoa, and a big dose of bitter hops. Full bodied with a smooth texture. A complex and satisfying stout.

Praetorian (86) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 25, 2008
Black in color with a medium sized light brown head with decent lacing. The aroma is of coffee, molasses, oak, and black licorice. The flavor is smoky with notes of roasted coffee beans, chocolate and a touch of vanilla on the tail. The finish was sweet. The texture was very creamy. Its a very good stout, Im a fan.

BMan1113VR (7898) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 24, 2008
Bottle. Pours thick with a deep black body and a dark brown head that fades to a ring that sticks with great lacing. A bit glass coating. Probably should be a foreign stout by its robustness. Aroma is chocolate cocoa powder, flowery with dry molasses, anise and vanilla. Taste is smoke and roasty with light notes of vanilla, licorice, and leather. Not too bitter, very few hops. Creamy mouthfeel and light bubbles.
