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.

MadIndian (2718) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2011
This was really good. A great black pour with colorful hues. A good bold roasted, chocolate aroma. A nice toasted, chocolate, bready, hoppy smooth taste. What’s not to love.

AWMiller (512) - Mansfield, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Definitely one of the best tasting stouts around! This brew poured up a near-black body with a one-finger bubbly head with amazing retention and lacing effects on the glass. Aromas of rum, vanilla, chocolate, espresso, dark fruits (plums, figs), roasted malts. Flavors of the same but are so well-balanced. Medium- to Full-bodied, rich and thick, smooth and creamy. Refreshingly clean finish with no harsh aftertastes whatsoever.

12 ounce bottle thanks to GatorGuy92. Poured a dark black color with a small khaki head with aromas of rich chocolate, biscuits, and roasted coffee. Had a smooth velvety feel, with the exact taste of the aroma, did not disappoint!

cryptobard (281) - DENMARK - SEP 9, 2011
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.
