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.

PawelD (127) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 7, 2014
Piwo butelkowe. Uderzający aromat karmelu, mlecznych krówek, kawy latte. Kolor nieprzejrzyście czarny, piana beżowa, elegancko zdobi szkło. W smaku bardzo pełne, aksamitnie gładkie, można wyczuć smak słodzonej kawy, krówek, przypalonego spodu od ciasta, toffi, lekki miód. Wysycenie niskie, alkohol bardzo ładnie przykryty całą gamą smaków i aromatów, przyjemna gorycz na finiszu, naprawdę wybitnie dobry stout.

Rounding out the in home flight. Overall enjoyed the beers and this one is a good representation of the brewery. Strong hop flavor. Strong malts. Dry and unilateral. Enjoyable but not overly exciting.
