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.

bottle... dark brown with a medium tan head, not much retention but thick with spotty lace... the nose is a bit light but solid, raisins, chocolate a bit of smoke... tastes great, super impressive non ba stout, tons of flavor and super balanced

Bottle. Pours extremely dark brown, almost completely black, with a lasting dense tan head. Aroma is rather restrained but appealing with hints of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, smoke and dark fruit. Flavour is bolder and roastier with notes of oak, tar, dark chocolate, smoke and vanilla. Thick, creamy mouthfeel with prickly carbonation and a long roasty finish. Well crafted, complex and very easy to drink, this stout isnt as rich and sweet as a lot of Imperials but it still has plenty going on .

A: The beer pours black in color with a rather impressive two fingers of tan head. S: Intense roasted malt and coffee aromas to this. Plenty of dark chocolate aromas with a subtle earthiness. Perhaps a hint of smoke, same thing for licorice. A bit of molasses and toffee for sweetness. T: The roasted malt flavor is quite powerful with a slight bitterness and earthy hop note. Lots of strong coffee and dark chocolate flavors, maybe a bit of licorice and burnt sugar. Subtle sweetness on the mid-palate. M: Medium bodied with smooth, medium carbonation. O: A very tasty beverage. Another solid beer from Green Flash.

this the best looking beer that Ive ever seen. I held it up to the light and could not see through it at all. While it only smelled like a single stout, which concerned me, the taste clearly was that of two stoust. this beer is great!

Great stout. Nice roasty, coffee flavors. Nice malty sweetness, and a gorgeous syrupy sweet aftertaste on your lips/tongue.

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.

Beaver (1668) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a big creamy tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet grainy chocolate malts, licorice and some lactose and roast. Weird floral notes come out as it warms.

The flavor is sweet plasticky lactic chocolate with black licorice and a big roasted char bitter finish that lingers in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation and a bit oily.

Overall, it just doesnt work for me. The more I sip, the less I like it. It has too many off notes for me - plastic and too much oily char that makes the black licorice unpleasant as well.

bottle pours black with fluffy brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, soft coffee, toasted nuts, Medium to full bodied, very smooth for 9%, earthy feel. Flavor is chocolate with a soft touch of raspberry, lingering finish of more bitter, dark chocolate, soil, charcoal. Very nice stout.

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. Whats not to love.
