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.

A pitch black beer with a lazing brown head. Aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of chocolate and a light note of burnt malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, chocolate, and roasted malt, leading to a bitter chocolaty finish. Good beer.

Bought as a single bottle. Great black ale. A little too bitter for my taste but I prefer cream stouts.

Pours a dark brown with minimal lacing on the glass. Roasted malt aroma. Bitter chocolate and coffee flavors. Dry finish. Very enjoyable.

Draft. Thick and dark as used oil, this stuff is an intimidating pitch black. It’s topped with one finger of silky graham cracker head that becomes a thin top layer that grips the glass in full sheets. The aroma is a enticing blend of cocoa, coffee, toast and peanuts. Each sniff reveals a solid new notes: vanilla, molasses and more. Soft sweetness; great roast character. Bigger molasses and anise in the flavor, paired with equally forceful burnt toast and charcoal. A creamy blend of dark chocolate, cream and vanilla bean adds just enough sweetness. The body’s a creamy medium, nice and velvety. Carbonation is a little high and prickly, breaking the beer into too much fizz. Some heat appears on the tongue, with accompanying warmth on the way down the throat. Nice.

njager246 (602) - grand rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2015
Aroma of coffee and chocolate, taste is fairly creamy with a fair amount of coffee and malts, chocolate does not come through in the taste as much as the aroma, doesn’t hold on as long as some other imperial stouts, still pretty good though

Very interesting brew. A little harsh at first but complex and tasty at the same time. Pours jet black like oil with a dark foamy short-lived head. Subtle flavors of chocolate, coffee, and dark malts are blended with hints of a more traditional ale taste. Definitely a sipper but worthy of savoring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
