Frothy tan head on a black body. Smells of coffee and chocolate, roasted. Pretty creamy flavor, as there is some vanilla in addition. This could be a real knockout if more happened on the palate. As it is, I’m very pleased with my purchase.

Bottle. Large foamy dark tan head and a thick black pour, looks great. Aroma is roasted, coffee, a little chocolate. Full, smooth, creamy stout, a little bitterness comes through and the finish is pleasant and lingers. Very good stout.

Pours thick black like used oil with nice thick chocolaty head and long lasting laces. Flavor is bitter chocolate and coffee enhanced with roasted grains and herbs. A full body with creamy, oily feel, soft carbonation to almost lively, and nice long dry clean and balanced finish.

I poured a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Unlike many big stouts, where the abv (and/or a bit of age) overwhelms the yeast and leads to a still-ish pour, this raised an enthusiastic 2-inch khaki head with hints of otherworldly red. The body sat inky black but lively, and laced the glass abundantly as it went down. Aromas of roast coffee and fennel suggested a tasty but generic big stout, but the flavor profile proved a bit more subtle, with waves of chocolate and hand-drawn espresso smoothing out the harsher edges that these beers sometimes maintain. The palate is smooth and pillowy, suggesting the texture of cotton candy. Overall, this is a fantastically light yet powerfully flavorful treat, and yet another feather in the crowded cap of the folks at Green Flash.
