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.

eczematic (1320) - Adelaide, - MAY 10, 2012
my kind of stout - like coopers stout ramped up a few notches. fruity and tarry and bitter and thick, with a nice subtle leafy hop background, without the citric alcohol/cohumulone kick in the finish most US stouts go in for. the fruitiness is provided by the yeast not the hops - plums and pears rather than grapefruit and pine. it all hangs together and blends seamlessly in the mouth. lovely stuff, not trying too hard and not that complex but doing the basic stouty flavours really honestly and really really fantastically well. just lacking a really amazing 3D aroma. things are looking good this winter with this and black bear stout readily available round here.

hotstuff (4219) - Indiana, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Rated on 10-29-2014 (Bottle) This beer pours a medium sized light brown head that mostly diminishes, opaque dark brown almost black body, very little fast rising carbonation, and a good amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and grassy hops. The flavor is roasted malt, dark fruit, chocolate, light grassy hops, and lightly bitter. The mouthfeel is lively carbonation and this beer is medium-full bodied. This is a quaffable sipping beer with a good flavor and worth trying.

Pours black with a fingers worth of brown head. Smells and tastes of burnt wood. Hints of dark chocolate and molasses. Burnt wood on the palate.

Sweet cocoa aroma. Pours thick black with a tan head. Decent flavor, starts off bitter and ends with a chocolatey finish.

YigSvartka (87) - Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 6, 2014
Pitch black, sludge-like appearance with minimal head. Although roast and malt dominates the aroma, some caramel and vanilla is present as well. Utterly stupendous taste. Thick, creamy and rich. Initially a wee bit hoppy, but this quickly dissipates and stuns your gustatory senses with an intense combination of roast, chocolate and vanilla. The dark chocolate roast taste lingers long after taking a sip. Fantastic. .

vadie (771) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
Noir avec un petit col marron. L’arôme du malt torréfié, du sucre, un peu de mélasse et chocolat. Le goût est du mélasse avec un peu du chocolat une finition d’une amertume moyenne pour le style. Plein du corps avec une palate épais. Une bière intense.

liquidhedonism (121) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - NOV 4, 2014
12 oz bottle. Aroma: boozy, malty, and roasty, with hints of coffee, burned sugar, and vanilla. Taste/Palate: thick, sweet, and crisp throughout; finishes astringent and slightly bitter. Would be perfect if not for the strong astringency. Regardless, this is another amazing beer from one of my favorite breweries!

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Poured from a 12oz bottle. Aroma is malty and roasty. Flavor is a bit boozy at first but finishes slightly chalky. Has an ever so slight cherry flavor but I pick up more of a molasses flavor overall. This beer is very smooth and easy drinking for 8.8%. It says on the bottle "taste enlightenment". Yes it is!

badwhale (376) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bomber to glass mug. Pours a dark brown or black. TAn head that dissapates. Fruit flavors, but not much of a hop profile, which is fine. Really smooth and tasty
