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.

Countbeer (4728) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2011 Bottle: Thanks to Milan. Big brown slow disappearing foamy head. Color is just black. Smell a lot of roasted malts, wood, coffee and liquorice. Taste a deep dark stout: lots of coffee, roasted ingredients/malts, liquorice, whiskeywood, hints of spices and dark fruits. Bit light and watery at first, but the next second the taste changes for 200% into a deep and dark stout with the complexity of an imperial stout. A long bitter coffee aftertaste. One of the best stouts out there.

harrisoni (14131) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2010
Bottle at ChrisO "Im Trying to see the Stool" pre GBBF2010 tasting. Black, thick beige head. Sour stout aorma. Good espresso flavour and slightly harsh choc on the swallow. Some sour. But good sweetness too. Bizarre.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 23, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2011 Bomber: Pours the darkest and reddest of ruby which can only be seen with bright light under a slowly diminishing fluffy tan head. Huge dark chocolate aroma with brown sugar, dark fruits, and some hay. Starts bitter and ends bitterer with an ending of coffee and sour chocolate. Slick bodied with mellow carbonation.

TechMyst (167) - Fox River Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2010
No joke this is one of the finest (Double) Stouts out there. Perfect taste and aroma; drinkability is off the charts. A must try if you can get your hands on it.

Goodgrief (1811) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - AUG 21, 2010
I dont know how I missed this one. Dark as night pour, flurry two finger head and lacing all over the glass. Chocolatey aroma. Strong flavor of chocolate was the backbone of this stout and the creaminess of this was phenomenal. Some fruitiness and pine-like hops rounded out the brazen flavor. This is really good.

Had this one at the UDRBM, 31-07-2010. Black colored brew. Chocolate and "spiritus" in the nose. Flavor has dark chocolate tones with some sherry. Silky.

Palidor19 (2998) - Brandon, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2010
this beer does have some great flavors of roasted malts, molasses, fruitiness and a tang at the end. heavy in the flavor yet light on the mouth feel. still its roasted flavor would go great with BBQ.

dEnk (4035) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2010 Bottle @ meeting. Deep solid black pour, small tanned head which quickly dissipates. Aroma of caramel, liquorice, peat, chocolate, coffee, cream and spices with a sharp sidenote. Flavour is sweet and bitter salty liquorice, coffee, chocolate, peat, spices. Lingers on for ages. Very nice.

The aroma is rather average for a stout. It has coffee, molasses, earth, and burnt malt. The appearance is dark brown with an average head. The taste is like the aroma with a toasted finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a pretty average stout. Its just a lot stronger.
