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.

Leighton (18038) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2016
Bottle at home in London. Picked up at Cask Pub and Kitchen (London) from their discount shelf; so, I figure this beer is probably at least one to two years out of date (it’s got the old label). Pours thick black-brown with a lasting, creamy beige head. Relaxed roasted malts in the aroma, with hints of oxidation (just faint suggestions of burnt cardboard creeping in), with pleasant over-arching dark chocolate character. Medium to big sweet flavour, with nicely layered chocolate notes, some baking cocoa, milk chocolate, good ashy roast, some bitter earth, dark fruits, raisins. Full bodied with average carbonation and velvety texture. Finishes with light alcohol warmth, sticky chocolate, bittersweet baking cocoa, burnt sugars, burnt toffee, some old leather, more raisins. There’s some light dryness in the aftertaste that levels things out well. Great beer overall. Good depth, nice balance. Totally solid from beginning to end.

Bawelt (489) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 15, 2016
Excellente ! Elle ne semblait pas payer de mine mais est réellement intéressante, assez complexe et franchement réussie. Le nez est assez complexe et changeant au fur et à mesure de son évolution en température et en oxydation. Au début, il y a pas mal de torréfaction un peu brute et d’alcool, pas super engageant. Rapidement, on part ensuite sur des notes un peu plus fumées, beaucoup plus chocolatées ensuite soutenues par ce qui ressemble fort à un bourbon assez doux ce qui donne un fond biscuit. La bouche a une attaque torréfiée franche mais pas agressive. La dominante est chocolatée et on peut sentir du café (du vrai) en fond. Le bourbon n’était pas un leurre, on le sent assez bien en bouche ce qui est vraiment une belle surprise et forme un superbe équilibre. A fur et à mesure que la bière est au contact de l’air, le café prend largement le dessus et le bourbon s’efface pour juste le soutenir en fond. On y trouve même des petites notes salées ! La finale est torréfiée mais présente des nuances de vert et de notes herbacées genre black IPA. La longueur est du même tonneau mais présente des notes de café bien plus franches.

De Cerveceria Green Flash(USA) "Double Stout Black Ale" el estilo es Imperial Stout con 8.8% de alcohol. En apariencia es una cerveza totalmente obscura dentro de la escala mas alta del SRM, posee un cuerpo viscoso bastante atenuado que impregna las paredes del vaso, con una corona de espuma muy llamativa con toques de color marrón claro y perlas de mediana complexion, excelente para una Stout que muchas veces no cuentan con esta característica o es muy escasa. Ya en el olfato se liberan tonos tostados, olores de la malta caramelo, café, algo de chocolate, frutos secos como la nuez, los lúpulos usados son norteamericanos sin embargo no se notan en aroma. Ya en el paladar muestra sabores a maltas tostadas, mucho caramelo para equilibrar los tonos tostados y el alcohol, sabores a café, nueces, no se percibe mucho sabor a chocolate o cacao, con una pequeña tibieza en garganta por el alcohol que sierra con una marca acida, una excelente cerveza obscura que equilibra muy bien todos sus componentes, con un final medianamente seco. Green Flash no solo hace buenas IPA’s y esta es la muestra.

bigcat03 (259) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Bottled poured into a snifter. Pours black with a tan head that dissolved quickly. A complex aroma with hints of coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, oak barrels, and malted milk balls. Initially big and roasty with some hints of dried dates and prunes. A very small alcohol kick to the aftertaste with lots of coffee ground bitterness that lasts. Great body and carbonation that is just lively enough. Wow! I took a flyer on this one in a mix-and-match sixer and was rewarded with a great beer. Be ready for a bold and bitter (in a good way) beer.
