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.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2011
12oz bottle. Dark black pour with a ring of tan head. Nose of roasted malt, some coffee grounds, and lots of chocolate - reminds me a bit of chocolate syrup. Absolutely delicious - very chocolate forward just like I like my Imperial Stouts. Creamy and smooth, I could drink lots of this despite the nearly 9% ABV.

Bottle. Black body with beautiful mocha colored head that lasts and laces well. The aroma is really good, slightly roasty, a bit fruity, with hints of coffee and vanilla. There is a definite and attractive hop presence as well. The flavor is perfectly balanced. Roasty, some dark and milk chocolate, some vanilla, and faint hops. Mellow creamy finish with a hint of hops and roasty dryness. Overall: this is a really spectacular stout. I really dig the lower abv imperial stouts, when flavors aren’t just overdone for the sake of "extreme" brewing.

HopMasterFlex (108) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Excellent stout for a year round release. Pours almost black, smells of chocolate, roasted malts, hops, and a little vanilla. Taste is very similar, slightly sweet yet bitter finish. I love this beer til the last drop every time. Had it on tap, cask, and bottle and can get enough. An every day beer worth having in the fridge for sure!
