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.

Courtesy hopscotch. Pours black, with a medium light brown head. Very nice and tempting looking. Smells pretty rosty, lots of dark chocolate, some creamy vanilla, and subtle hops. The flavor is pretty heavy on that roast, with soe hoppy burnt chocolate characters, and a profound hop biterness in the finish and aftertaste. Pretty nicely done stout, enjoyed its complexity for a simple stout.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2008
Very dark black body with a large creamy brown head that persists. Big chocolate and roast aroma. Big roast and chocolate aroma with a rather potent bitter finish. Medium full body with moderate carbonation. Certainly very bitter, but not completely unbalanced from the malt complexity.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2008
Dark brown nearly black color with a small, beige head of foam. Nose is awfully light smelling, mostly hop accented with some malt character but the nose overall is disappointing. It’s a hoppy stout, mostly hop accented with citrus notes and lots of bitterness. Malts are a bit over roasted and unbalanced, lots of bitter chocolate and coffee ground notes, but it could show some more fruit character. Pretty brash and not a lot of complexity or overall balance.

Bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville. Nearly black pour with a medium brown head. Decent retention/lacing. Roasted malt aroma with chocolate and coffee notes. Roasty taste with coffee, chocolate, brown sugar and hop bitterness. Creamy texture. Yummy.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Pizza Port Carlsbad. Pours black with a creamy brown head. Sweet chocolate aroma with hints of molasses, toasted oats, and licorice. Rich coffee taste, roasted malt, milk chocolate, and a Chock Full O’ Nuts finish. Hearty for just a Stout. Very good.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Pour from a 750 ml. bottle. Black brown with a good tan mocha head. Great aromas of chocolate, molasses, and licorice. Nice thickness but not syrupy. Flavors of complexity include smoky sweet malt, bitter hops,. Very good bitter somewhat dry finish. Excellent stout.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Gotta love having Green Flash around NC. This one pours a deep dark black color with a dark brown. Huge bubbles in that head. Aroma hints at molasses, mocha, and maybe a touch of dates. Very thick with a great dark chocolate taste that finishes bitter like straight espresso. Well done.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2008 On tap at Taproom. Full bodied, rich, bursting with rich dark chocolate, and a dry, bitter, long coffee finish. I really liked this one. Very well done indeed.
