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.

onceblind (7529) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Pitch black with a thin tan head that leaves a nice cap with good lacing. Aroma of roasty earthy chocolate, a touch of molasses, and grainy roasted black malt. Nice full flavor with a great linger, not astringent, leaves pleasant off-dry texture that makes you want more. Roasty flavor full of dark malts, some bakers chocolate, though not as sweet...a touch of black licorice and a hint of molasses, finishing on grainy dark black malts tone. Has a little too much of that ’black malt’ taste, not enough chocolate tones or sweetness for my liking. That said, this is an incredibly made stout with huge body and great complexity.

Rasmus40 (17836) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2011
Black with a brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, burnt and a little alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and roasted rather bitter finish. Oily and smooth. 081111

Koelschtrinker (17747) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 8, 2011
Cremig malziger Antrunk. Nussige und feine Röstaromen sind bereits von Beginn an vorhanden. Das Aroma bleibt durchweg intensiv, der Geschmack vollmundig. Dabei variiert die Süße etwas, die Röstigkeit geht zugunsten einer aromatischen Bitterschokoladennoten zurück. Geringe Bananigkeit. Super! 7/12/12/11/10/12

BazookaJoe (274) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 7, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2013 In bottle, aged a little over a year. Pours black with thin tan head. Very roasty with a creamy finish. Also, well hopped for a big stout. Very good beer.

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2011
A big and very thick pour, obviously so from the opaque quality of the body and the lasting creamy head. A nice roasty aroma greets you, with some chocolate smoothness detectable. Taste is heavy on the espresso characteristics, with a bit of a lactic quality emerging in the finish, along with smooth milk chocolate, and a subtle sweet berry character. A very nice stout from this fine brewery.

kra303 (8) - Carbondale, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2011 does not count
Pours like black gold; creamy tawny head, with long lacing; intense nose of chocolate malt, roasted, toasted stout character; silky, mouthfilling, yet balanced with just the right carbonation/acidity; wow, pour me another!

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours nearly black with a big tan head. Beautiful beer. Aroma is all chocolate and coffee. Flavor is creamy milk chocolate, some coffee, macadamia nuts, lots of roast malt, some nice earthiness, a hint of hops. Creamy mouthfeel.

unclemike (2925) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Black with a really thick and dark brown head. Aroma is of creamy chocolate almost like chocolate milk. Taste is chocolate in the front with the feel of it being creamy. The finish is some bitter, burnt flavors that mix well with the chocolate flavors in the taste. Nice.

BREWMUSKCLES (2569) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2011
velvety smoothness you can see in the pour. sweetness and body like chocolate but not quite there. malt flavor, the beer turns a bit like a full red wine after some time. dark brown head and murky bubbly carbonation stays long like the afore mentioned. a bit of spice and an noticeable lingering bit of ash in the finish. fully satisfying.
