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.

Pours a thin black with a finger of brown head that clings nicely to the glass. Nose and taste are of dark chocolate, a trace of coffee perhaps, roasted malts, and mellow hops. This is a nicely balanced easy drinking beer. Quite enjoyable at 8.8%. I love big stouts but on a cool fall evening, kicking back with the wife and kid this beer is big enough to warm small enough to drink alone. Overall I would have to say this beer fit my mood and tastes tonight perfectly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ogivlado (7033) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 25, 2011
Bottled 355ml. -from Kihoskh, Copenhagen. Different label than this one on the pic. Oily black coloured, big creamy brown head, chocolate and alcohol in the nose. Roasted (almost burnt) malt, bitter chocolate and light licorice with strong but pleasant alcohol presence. Quite complex and superb stout.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2011
12oz bottle. Pitch black color, one-finger brown head fading to just a splotch of webbiness floating on the completely opaque surface. Some sparase lace. Really nice roasty dark bitter aroma. Not too much chocolate, not too much coffee. Just pure double-stout roastiness. Good, thick, big creamy mouthfeel. Mild and quick carbonation. Nicely done imperial stout, very satisfying.
