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.

I guess a double stout is somewhere between a regular stout and an imperial? Pours Dark black with nice, big, frothy tan head. Big chocolate coffee nose. Nice roasty chocolate flavor, and lots of dark fruits with dry finish. Great thick mouthfeel. I had trouble finishing the bottle, though.Not to say it got cloying, because it didn’t., but the flavor became a bit too much. Probably should have shared it with a bra.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Rating from a bomber procured at the Friar Tuck in Bloomington, IL. 8.8%? How big does a stout have to get afore it’s "imperialized"? Be that as it may - This pours a deep, dark brown, nearly black, with a modest brown head that laces in sheets. Very nice aroma of roasted malt, milk chocolate, oats, and a light hit of hops. Smooth. It tastes of chocolate and dark roasted malts with just a touch of oats. Sweet, roasty finish. Nice.

This wasa nice smooth stout. There was a good chocolate/roast aroma with just a little of the oatmeal slickness you can get with oatmeal stout. This was a very tasty beer.

Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate with a touch of hops, not very powerful overall. Flavor is roasted malt and chocolate with a very roasted finish. Nice body. Solid stout.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 18, 2008
Black with a long lasting brown head. Chocolate and chocolate liquere aroma. Flavour reminds me of Brooklyn Chocolate although alcohol is quieter here. Lots of cocoa in the mouth and finish.

22. Thanks, BitBucket! Dang, what a great treat to just have randomly handed to you one afternoon. Nearly jet black. Sticky, solid sheets of lace. Modest, thin tan rim. Big chocolate nose. Gorgeous creamy thick body. Toast and a little bit of bitter dark baking chocolate. Beautifully balanced with a little sweet. Clean dry finish. What a beer!

Very tasty. Nice and creamy. A little more hops than normal but it goes well with the roasted malt. Very nice as it warms. Great on a cold fall evening.

This is a great stout and a nice change of pace. A bit more carbonated than expected but still has a lush mouthfeel. Pours black with a one finger head that lingers. Good lacing. Flavor is roasty with cocoa really coming through but there is some hoppiness as well. This one seems to be under-appreciated.

kramer (5611) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2008
22 oz bottle. Pours a flat black body with a small fizzy brown head. The nose is roasty and chocolaty with some licorice and light hops. Very dry roasty flavor, fairly hefty malt bitterness, pretty hoppy for a Stout. Just a touch of alcohol on the lingering roasty finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, on the drier side, with moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice, though the bitterness gets a little tiring.
