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.

YigSvartka (159) - Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 6, 2014
Pitch black, sludge-like appearance with minimal head. Although roast and malt dominates the aroma, some caramel and vanilla is present as well. Utterly stupendous taste. Thick, creamy and rich. Initially a wee bit hoppy, but this quickly dissipates and stuns your gustatory senses with an intense combination of roast, chocolate and vanilla. The dark chocolate roast taste lingers long after taking a sip. Fantastic. .

Sweet cocoa aroma. Pours thick black with a tan head. Decent flavor, starts off bitter and ends with a chocolatey finish.

julesjis (232) - Oregon, USA - NOV 4, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Poured from a 12oz bottle. Aroma is malty and roasty. Flavor is a bit boozy at first but finishes slightly chalky. Has an ever so slight cherry flavor but I pick up more of a molasses flavor overall. This beer is very smooth and easy drinking for 8.8%. It says on the bottle "taste enlightenment". Yes it is!

liquidhedonism (267) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - NOV 4, 2014
12 oz bottle. Aroma: boozy, malty, and roasty, with hints of coffee, burned sugar, and vanilla. Taste/Palate: thick, sweet, and crisp throughout; finishes astringent and slightly bitter. Would be perfect if not for the strong astringency. Regardless, this is another amazing beer from one of my favorite breweries!

badwhale (391) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bomber to glass mug. Pours a dark brown or black. TAn head that dissapates. Fruit flavors, but not much of a hop profile, which is fine. Really smooth and tasty

thedm (5001) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 29, 2014
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized dark brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body and a very good lacing. The nice aroma was mild chocolate and dark malt. The mildly vinous semi-thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong dark malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of roasted malt strong malt toasted malt mild hops chocolate brown malt and dark malt. A wonderful best in class brew.

Green Flash does it again. This has all the flavor and aroma you would expect from a stout. The malts are well balanced and the oats provide the perfect smoothness. Abv is undetectable. Wish this was a little roastier and alittle thicker. Awesome stout though.

vadie (908) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
Noir avec un petit col marron. L’arôme du malt torréfié, du sucre, un peu de mélasse et chocolat. Le goût est du mélasse avec un peu du chocolat une finition d’une amertume moyenne pour le style. Plein du corps avec une palate épais. Une bière intense.

radio_nowhere (981) - Maryland, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle into tulip glass, opaque deep dark brown color with dark tan head. Aroma of heavy roasted malt, dark chocolate, ground coffee, molasses and a faint fruitiness. Taste adds notes of bakers chocolate, dark roast coffee, cream, vanilla, slight woodiness and earthy hop bitterness. Heavy body, low carbonation, rich, creamy with lingering coffee roast finish. Pretty darn good IS, rich and coffee heavy.
