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.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 6, 2008
22oz bottle: Pours to an opaque black colored body with a medium light brown colored head. The aroma shows a bit of roasted dark malt, chocolate, a stale caramel drizzled coffee, light honey, and brown sugar. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, light cocoa with hints of citrus/pine hops in the background. Heavy body, medium carbonated, finishes dry with hints of dusty roasted malt and light alcohol.

IrishBoy (3836) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Draft at Pizza Port Carlsbad; Nose is very chcolatey and roasty black with a medium, very tiny bubbled tan head, that heavily laced the glass; flavor was chocolate and more chocolate!

Bomber poured a translucent black with a small lingering brown head. Aromas of dark chocolate, vanilla, light carmel and a hint of earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of dark chocolate, roastiness, light coffee and light vanilla with a smooth lingering roasty finish.

Nice brown black pour. Smell is roasted malt and chocolate with a hint of caramel. Flavor is bold and robust chocolate and roasted nutty malt. No obvious alcohol. Nice palate - not too creamy or heavy but nice and fitting.

lb4lb (2546) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Pours dark black with a short lived tan head. Smell is roasty and chocolately. Taste is very roasty and almost burnt malt, along with dark chocolate. Flavorful. Medium bodied with a nice bitter dark chocolate and tobacco like flavor. Pretty solid beer that probably should be entered as an Imperial Stout.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Bottle, thanks to Bu!!zeye. Pours a rich black with nice tan/copper head. Aroma of very nice dark roast. Semi-sweet dark roast, some dark chocolate roasted grains,with a nice bitter. Mouthfeel is full bodied with low carbonation. Not bad at all, a strong, easy drinking stout.

NachlamSie (2764) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Bomber. Pours respectably dark with a whispy tan head. The aroma is sweet and chocolate with adequate roast to keep things interesting. Some dark fruits are noted along with bitter hops. The mouth is nice, just medium heavy. The boldest thing about this one is the meaty, smoky qualities. Nothing like a rauch, but sitll boderline bacon. Earth, wood, coffee, and dark chocolate make up the flavor profile. This is rather well executed.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 3, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2009 Nice dark pour with dark tan head. Sweet roasty coffee, chocolate malt, and hops on the nose. Nice balance of roast and hops on the palate, and the sweetness was integrated well. Slightly thin, but that’s my only complaint. A very good American Double Stout. RE-RATE: I just had a bottle that tasted like it had about 8 ounces of peach schnapps added to it. WTF? Don’t even know what to say, but it tasted nasty. Gave it a 3.9 the first time, but I have to lower a few points based on that bad experience.

BOLTZ7555 (2799) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Aroma is subtle nuances of freshly brewed coffee, cocoa, and malt. Appearance is, undoubtedly, this beers best quality. Nice dense latte head sits atop a brown bordering black body. Flavor is nuttier than most...perhaps espresso spiked with an almond liqueur. Just doesn’t stand up to the best-in-class.
