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.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 25, 2010
On tap at Pizza Port (Solana Beach, CA): Pours black with a thick brown foamy head. Roasted malts in the nose as well as dark chocolate and some alcohol. Taste is similar with some added earthy hops and licorice that leaves an incredibly sweet and balanced mouthfeel with a delicate bitter hop finish. Drinkability: Heavy, not thick, smooth and creamy. Dark chocolate stands out. Pairing: Meat pie. Rebuy: Definitely. #288 on 25022010, DG.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2011 Bomber. Black coffee colored with an inch of thick cappuccino head. Aroma is sweet roasted malt and Kahlua. Taste begins with strong toasted malt sweetness and caramel followed by bittersweet chocolate and coffee liqueur. It finishes slightly dry and smoky with some mild coffee bitterness. The overall flavor is sweet, smooth and silky.

Rich aroma of molasses, dark chocolate and raisons. Deep black color, nice belgian lace on the glass. Full and complex on the tongue. Flavors of burnt toast & espresso. Sweet mouthfilling malt, dry bitter roasted malts and bitter hops play in the finish.

I smuggled this one back from OR in my luggage. Opaque with a tan head. The nose brings roasted grain, chocolate and mild coffee notes. Intro is rich after the bubbles dissipate. Plenty of coffee and molasses come forward while bit of bakers chocolate hiding behind. This brew shows the complexity you can bring from roasted grain without going off the deep end. The hops do their job to sop up all the RS that was left behind after fermentation. A wonderful example of a properly made double stout. Green Flash Brewing Co. does it again!

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Bottle. Poured an opaque black color. There was a lovely thick brown head with good retention and lacing. The aroma was very similar to chocolate milk. Plain and simple. Medium to full bodied and sweet. The flavor profile included the likes of chocolate, cream, and light roast. Very well put-together stout.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2010
A burnt coffee, green hop aroma. Thick resinous mouthfeel. Strong coffee taste, decent hop kick. A distracting off-bitterness in the finish made this hard to finish the glass.
