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.

Tap. Black pour with a medium dark head. Relatively mild flavor for a stout- some hop bitterness but no overpowering roasted malt flavors. Smooth and easy drinking. It hides its alcohol content well. Pretty good overall.

Duchammer (96) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle poured motor oil black with a quick diminishing head. Aroma had hints of toffee and toasted biscuit. The beer had a nice semi sweet chocolate with bitterness from the hops and roasted barley.

troyc (2776) - Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2015
[Bottle] Inky black pour with a lasting cap of deep brown head. Almost a nitro look to the foam. Heavy roasted and charred malts in the aroma. Coffee and bitter chocolate come through strongly. Flavors of ashy malts, burnt toast, coffee grounds, bakers chocolate and some anise. Earthy hops and some alcohol are evident in the finish. Dry overall.

12oz bottle from Old Town in Louisville. Poured into a stemmed tulip. Pitch black color with a beautiful milk chocolate head. Nice aromas of coffee, leather and chicory. Creamy mouthfeel with a nice long dry finish. Excellent Imperial Stout.

Mjp12 (534) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Coffee and chocolate aroma, pours a shiny black. The initial malt flavour is then cleaned away by a dry coffee finish. I like that although it is 8.8%, it doesn’t have the sweet notes of some imperials. You could easily drink a few pints.m

Nephilium (1442) - Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Roasted aroma with a hint of dark fruit. Pours an opaque black with a quickly fading light tan head. Big chocolate notes in this beer, with a touch of roast. It finishes into a nice lingering roasted, earthy, bitterness. A very nice sipping stout for a cold night.
