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.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2009 (Bottled) Very dark brown with a small, beige head. Quite complex aroma of apple fruitiness, licorice, roasted malt. Sweetish-malty flavor with lots of licorice, huge bitterness (although well hidden), pear and vanilla notes. Medium to full body with low, soft carbonation. Very easily drinkable, yet reasonably complex stout with pleasant (and clearly present) licoricey notes. Maybe slightly ashy and not so velvety on the second tasting, but still very good.

leems (406) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Pours dark black with a thick head, the aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, almost, it makes you start salivating in anticipation. The flavor is the same as the aroma, dark chocolate and coffee, sweet but balanced, vanilla a little caramelized sugar, delicious. Great finish, very easy drinking. I was disappointed when this was gone and wanted another.

Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2009
Bottle. Aroma is nicely oat-ey if that’s a word. Pours an oily black like I just pulled the drain plug on an engine. Flavor is quite tasty, deep roasted malts, coffee, toll house morsels. Palate is nicely filling. Overall, I believe I’ll be finishing the bottle in short order. Get Some!!

beerchugger (716) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2009 Pours straight black with no light penetration at all. Thick 2-finger wide creamy head forms and never leaves. Smells of deep roasted coffee, and small hints of chocolate. The mouthfeel is full and lovely, a little oily. The taste is very nice...rich and roasty with some hints of raisin, licorice, and vanilla. Chocolate and coffee are most notable, however. Finishes very smooth and easy. A very nice stout!

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Bottle from Roger Wilco in Palmyra, NJ. Pours a very deep brown with two finger brown head that dissipates to a ring. Very nice aroma of dark fruits, chocolate, and roasted malts. Full bodied with slight creamy texture. Flavor of dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. Average amount of residual sweetness, perhaps leaning toward sweet. Sharp hoppy finish that lingers, perhaps a bit overdone for my personal tastes.
