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.

ryanknock (150) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Really well rounded Imperial Stout. Luscious chocolate flavor dominates, along with oat, caramel and toffee notes. There is a slight warming in the beer, but the finish isn’t too bitter, and rather sweet, for this strong of a stout.

Sammy (11069) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2009
Dark bomber. Good chocolate and secondary roast and coffee in aroma. Pours black with above average carbonation and above average mouthfeel. Roast flavour builds up over repeated glasses. A bomber is a lot to drink.

sauceyhops (104) - carlsbad, California, USA - JAN 16, 2009
bottle. Pours very dark brown with a tan, 1 finger head. Aroma of dirt and roasted malts with unsweetened chocolate. The mouthfeel is pretty thin and, to be honest, the flavor almost tastes like dirt. I really wasn’t very impressed with this one.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle thanks to and shared with FunkyBrewster. Pours a very dark near black with a small creamy tan frothy head. Huge dry chocolatey coffee aroma with lots of molasses, a bit of varnish/alcohol, very strong. Delicious well balanced flavor, licorice, dark bittersweet coco powder, resiny hops, light fruit, a bit of coffee beans, hint of caramel sweetness, slightly woody campfire burntness. Amazing balance. Medium creamy body with soft larger carbonation.

DocHop (278) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Pours an extremely dark brown with a small, light brown head. Aroma of mildly roasted malts, bitter sweet chocolate, and some fudgey sweetness. Very sweet at first with chocolate, caramel, and nutty flavors. Very creamy body with a sharp, funny, kind of dirt-like pepper finish that I don’t care for.

elihapa (1545) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JAN 10, 2009
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).

JohnnyJ (5367) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 9, 2009
On tap at stone. Pours a dark brown/black with creamy brown head. Flavors of dark chocolate, coffee beans, hints of vanilla, licorice, and some plum. Nicely done imp stout.

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours deep black with beautiful brown head. Huge roasty aroma with hints of licorice, coffee & I agree with CapFlu some soy. Fuller bodied. Big roasted malt taste with some booziness, licorice & some bitterness. Good stout

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2009
(22oz bottle) Purchased at Spinnakers Spirit Merchants in James Bay, Victoria. Pours a 1 inch brown head atop an opaque black body. Nose of coffee grounds, soya sauce. Flavour of good roasted malt, strong coffee tongue and earthy finish. Very good. 8/4/8/4/16

thewolf (12023) - 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.
