3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells malty, chocolate like and herbaceous. Thin light brown head, black liquid. Tastes of burnt malt, chocolate, alcohol, black currant, walnut.
Rich body, nice carbonation, bitter slightly chalky finish.
The flavour profile is complex, but not overly amazing. The burnt flavour is too powerful and the chalky finish reduces the overall flavour of the beer.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick black color with a very brief tan head that disappears rather quickly. Aroma is of roasted malt, vanilla, coffee, brandy, licorice and coffee...very interesting. Full bodied, all of the aromas appear in the taste. Sweet finish. Great beer!

This, this is a good beer. So far, it's my favorite from Green Flash. This is a big beer. About as dark as you can get. Very malty with a very thick head. The malts and oats balance well with each other and finishes strong on the back of the throat.

The aroma has earthly tones with roasted malts. The color is nearly pitch black with minimal lacing. The head is dark tan and it’s quite lively. It has a coffee flavor with plenty of oaks and roasted malts.

Dark black with coarse brown head, good so far. A lot of chocolate and black coffee up front with a heavy syrupy sweetness. A bit too bold for it’s own good. Loses some of it’s backbone due to the presence of alcohol and sweetness. I’d prefer it slightly toned down.
