4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep black with big brown head and nice lacing. Aroma is nutty, roast, cocoa, and some coffee. Taste is a nice play of sweet and bitter, leaning heavily towards the bitter side, between the triple combination of the heavy roast up front, the drying cocoa bitterness in the middle, and the resin bitterness from the hops. Retronasal is nice, providing some relief. Palate is 2% milk with noticeable carbonation and a dry finish.

Shelf turd stout that is highly rated, thought I would check it out. Poor is a jet black color with a massive mocha head. Good lacing. Smell is licorice, chocolate, roast, and a little espresso. Taste again with the licorice, rich dark chocolate, coffee bitterness, and slightly dry. Good carbonation. Great example of the style!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
FROM NOTES: June 30, ’12
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Roasted malt character. with chocolate, caramel, smoke and coffee notes and hints of some fruity yeast esters.
A: Pours pitch black with a one-finger tan head that dissipates into moderate retention and some lacing.
T: Malt largely follows the nose, but surprisingly strong citrus hop presence breaks through the malt after a time, alongside spice. Finishes long and bitter with citrus hop flavors.
P: Somewhat thin for the style, medium-bodied overall and good carbonation. A smooth beer.
O: Another good beer from Green Flash.

It's just feels so right in your mouth. Damn near perfection. There's not much more I can say about this. Looks amazing; super thick n dark. Lays it on thick on your palate.

Bottle thanks to Harold. Nose is roasted malts, light chocolate, earthy notes, some faint fruitiness. Pour is dark dark brown/black. Creamy palate with chocolate and roasted notes balanced perfectly. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I don’t normally go for foreign stouts, but this is the exception. It smells like a tootsie roll with a soft presence of coffee and dark fruits. The body is incredibly smooth and chocolatey as well with a subtle hop bitterness. Undertones of dark chocolate, earthiness and raisins intensify as it warms up. I’d love to see this on nitro-tap.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark complex beer with a cocoa and coffee aroma. Fantastic appearance immediately off the drought. Medium bodied caramel head and thick lacing on consumption. For a stout it’s plenty satisfying. Not best immediate taste on the palate, but has a rewarding after effect. Definitely one of my top stouts.
