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.

Pour from the bottle is dark with a light brown head, aroma is rich malty and powerful overtones of alcohol, taste is roasted smokey, the finish leaves an alcohol vapor and bitters on the back of the tongue. Overall a solid imperial stout but I am not a huge fan.

stevoj (2382) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 17, 2015
ABV hides very well on this brew, most noticeable at the tail end with a little burn on the tongue. Inky black body, small creamy beige head. Medium weight body, very slippery. Not as toasty as some, but still very dark tasting (?). Very smooth and drinkable

hershiser2 (1271) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2015
$2.90 bottle from Wine Warehouse, CHO. Black with a dark brown head. Smells of licorice and chocolates. Thick, rich chocolates in the mouth, hint of metal, hint of fish. Would be an 8 if not for the metal and fish.

Good imperial stout. Abv very well hidden. Taste very one dimensional for me... All roasted malts with a good dose of hops, little to none coffee and/or chocolate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

serjaymz (96) - Istanbul, TURKEY - JAN 6, 2015
Şişe, istanbul, 06.12.2015. Simsiyah bir renk ve yarım parmak kalıcı olmayan kahverengi köpük. Köpük bardağı sarıyor.. Bardakta az-orta gövdeli.. Koku kavrulmuş malt, bitter çikolata, kremamsı.. Tadım bitter çikolata, kavrulmuş arpa, acılık ve kavrukluk damakta kalıcı.. Topraksı, yoğun, kompleks, bitter çikolata tatları ve kavrulmuş acılık oldukça dengeli ve yoğun.. Bu oranda yüksek alkol tadımda hissediliyor ancak rahatsız edici ve baskın değil kesinlikle.. Oldukça başarılı..
