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.

Transfer from BA review on 4-25-13- Poured from bottle into a snifter Appearance- The beer pours a nearly pitch black color with a two finger brown colored head. The head has a nice level of retention, fading over time to leave a great level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma is heaviest of a big roasted malt smell mixed with lots of dark coffee and chocolate. Mixed with these more bitter aromas are some smells of a sweeter dark fruit variety as well as some char. Taste – The beer begins with a strong roasted malt flavor with some light sweetness of dark fruits upfront. As the flavor advances past the initial taste, a bitter chocolate and coffee come to the tongue drowning out much of the sweeter tastes that were detected before. While these more bitter dark flavors last to the end they are later joined by some flavors of smoke and a bit of booziness. These when mixed also with a light vanilla and woody taste leave a moderately bitter and roasted flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is thick and creamy with a rather lower level of carbonation. The combination is fantastic for the roasted and moderately bitter and dark flavors. Overall – A dark and drier Imperial stout with tons of roasted malt flavor and a decent bitter bite.

On tap at Raleigh Times. Dark dark brown with a bit of tan head. Cocoa malt aroma. Dark cocoa taste with a bitterness that remains on the palate. Growing on me, but I'd bet this would be absolutely outstanding aged in bourbon barrels. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Complex aroma of dark fruits, deep, roasted chocolate and coffee notes, a bit of vanilla and sweet caramel malts. Appearance is black, with a thick brown head, with great retention and lacing. The taste is strong, deeply roasted coffee. Dark fruits. Surprisingly bitter, leaves a bit of a bite on the tongue. Bitterness distracts a little bit more than I’d like. Palate is thick, and sticky, and really remains on the tongue for the aftertaste. Overall this is a sensational stout with great balance.

My final beer with dinner. My palate in shock from the previous Le Freak. Dark as midnight, excellent head and lacing. Medium mouthfeel but so much coffee. High ABV@8.8%, this is to Guinness as a Grizzly Bear is to Bambi. Not a lawn mower style. I only wish I ordered a chocolate dessert.

Green Flash Double STOUT, has the aroma, taste and feel that an excellent stout should have. This is no Guinness! I went and toured the beautiful Dublin Guinness Storehouse this summer and drank their watered down, beer for the ignorant tasteless McDonald myopic masses. Yuck! Green Flash Double STOUT is the absolute opposite! If you want a big beer 9%, with great aroma, huge taste, smooth feel and clear complexity ... then look no further. I would rather buy one Green Flash Double STOUT than a 12 Guinness draft in the Dublin Guinness Storehouse. By the way, I travel a lot and NO WHERE in world, Prague, Berlin, Brussels, etc. can compete with US Craft Brews! We are changing the world from bland Light and Dark Lagers to incredible tasting ales, all because of the advancement of brewing technologies, and clean yeast strains. For those in the know regarding craft brews the US is famous, and I am not very patriotic or hold to our US foreign policies. Bottom line: You have not tasted a good stout until you have tasted Green Flash Double STOUT! Can’t wait to drink it after a day of skiing. Enjoy! Dr. Bulger
