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.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger and Barcade. Pitch black with a thick creamy tan head. Aroma is quite nice, milk chocolate, toasted malt, malted milk and a soft earthy roastiness as well. A bit of chewy sweetness on the back. Espresso roastiness and a lightly smoky and charry finish. Fairly hoppy on the back which helps dry out the stickiness. Quite tasty really.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 7, 2008
Tap at Barcade: Pours opaque with a dense dark brown head. Roasty aroma. Dark chocolate, kilned barley, and a vanilla bean hint. Rich, slick body. Pretty chewy with a nice roasted flavor. Rich roasted espresso, burnt raisins, vanilla bean undertones and a pleasant alcohol presence. A rich, well done Imperial Stout.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - APR 2, 2008
Cask at the Blind Tiger. Black pour, no head. Aroma is peaty, meaty, roasted, sweet chocolate, and black licorice. Flavor is the same; meaty, roasted malt, slightly sweet and oaty, some chocolate, and a bitter roasted malt and hoppy finish. There are a lot of flavors in this one, and I thought it was pretty good.

On tap @ the brewery. Pours black with a creamy milk chocolate head. Big nose of chocolate and caramel malts. An abundance of coffee was present as well. A nice sweet, but at the same time dry finish.

BeerGeyser (37) - San Marcos, California, USA - MAR 15, 2008
On tap at the Green Flash Brewery tasting room. A dark stout with a nice brown head when it comes out of the tap. Initial taste is a robust roasted dark malt flavor with a slight hop bite. A hint of dark chocolate in the aftertaste and boasts an ABV > 8%. A fantastic addition to the Green Flash line.
