4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2012 Fabulous stout! Not sure what makes it "double", but it’s certainly quadruple times better than that Fuller’s "Double" Stout. Great black colour with beautiful brown head. The right aoma of roasted malts, chocolate and a touch of hops and grapes, after all we’re in California here, aren’t we? The flavour has the right balance os caramels, chocolates and the bitters of hops. Solid and full bodied. Sweet and dry finish, yes, it IS possible. Big, Bold and Complex - they got it right!

Green Flash Double STOUT, has the aroma, taste and feel that an excellent stout should have. This is no Guinness! I went and toured the beautiful Dublin Guinness Storehouse this summer and drank their watered down, beer for the ignorant tasteless McDonald myopic masses. Yuck! Green Flash Double STOUT is the absolute opposite! If you want a big beer 9%, with great aroma, huge taste, smooth feel and clear complexity ... then look no further. I would rather buy one Green Flash Double STOUT than a 12 Guinness draft in the Dublin Guinness Storehouse. By the way, I travel a lot and NO WHERE in world, Prague, Berlin, Brussels, etc. can compete with US Craft Brews! We are changing the world from bland Light and Dark Lagers to incredible tasting ales, all because of the advancement of brewing technologies, and clean yeast strains. For those in the know regarding craft brews the US is famous, and I am not very patriotic or hold to our US foreign policies.
Bottom line: You have not tasted a good stout until you have tasted Green Flash Double STOUT!
Can’t wait to drink it after a day of skiing.

Good strong stout beer. Robust body of roasted malt, with a smooth taste of coffee and bitter cacao. That’s how it’s done.
