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.

I haven’t written a review in forever...just had to write this one to say how amazed I was with this beer. Slap a $15/bomber price tag on this puppy with some fancy packaging and you’ve got a top-50 beer. For $10/4-pack, this beer is incredible. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, nuts, toffee (coffee and toffee in the same beer - you f***in kiddin me? america, f*** yeah!). Little bit of ash on the palate, slight dryness. Great f***in beer, put me down for a case.

12oz, new style bottle from grape & gourmet. pours black with a thick, creamy, beige head and great lacing. aroma is great with big, roasted malts, molasses, cold coffee, and chocolate brownie with hints of caramel, toast, vinous fruits, and earth as it warms. flavor is delicious as well with loads of toasted, dark malts, black coffee, and bitter dark chocolate with notes of dusty oats, prunes, and toffee and a hint of sweet vanilla as it warms. palate is medium bodied and silky smooth with great carbonation and a long, roasty finish. overall, an excellent stout.

A deep dark black body that almost absorbs light. A nice brown head that was initially thick and then faded to a small coating, good lace. Aroma had nice roasted malts, mostly of coffee but there was just the right amount of dark chocolate to give it some depth. Initial flavor was of the coffee malts, but the chocolate malts were just enough to take the edge off. Hops came through at the end with just the right amount of bitterness. A somewhat dry finish.

Pour deep brown almost black with large light brown head. Excellent lacing. Aroma coffee, a tad earthy, roasty and vanilla. Taste of grassy bitterness, chocolate, coffee, earthiness and hints of vanilla. MF is outstanding satin velvety smooth with a very fine carb and outstanding mouth coating quality. Great beer very well brewed.

Naka (708) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Pours pitch black with a small dark beige head. Some lacing. Flavor has tons of molassas and some decent roasted character. A little bittersweet cocoa with slight vanilla. Body is very rich, but maybe just compared to the other things I’ve been drinking today. Leaves a bitter roasted flavor on the tongue.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2011 Milk chocolate nose, with some lighter caramel, and a bit of coffee. Taste is relatively dry and the beer is well attenuated. The roast lasts throughout and into the finish. Some nice dark and milk chocolates. Just a tad ashy on the finish.

Wow this beer takes stouts to entirely new levels! Full bodied but oh so smooth. I could smell chocolate, coffee, vanilla, cream, oatmeal. I could taste chocolate, coffee, sweet malts and ever so slight hops mixing in there as well along with toffee and hints of caramel. Hides the alcohol very well. I have to say this is probably a beer I will be buying more of if it is around much longer. Highly recommended! Also when poured it has a nice amount of head that stays around and is that light brown color that only good stouts have.
