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 Ė Double Stout.

Looks like a chocolate desert, dark brown with a big, foamy head. The aroma is rich and slightly tart, and the taste is big and strong. there isnít a lot in the front, but the malt announces itself in the middle and then thereís big, dark chocolate and a smooth, smokey, dark-roast coffee finish. the 8.8% ABV isnít a presence in the taste at all.

Something interesting about this beer. Aroma is interesting, nice roasted notes and flavor is smooth yet complex. Hides the alcohol well and a nice finish. I love green flash.

Black, creamy brown head. Chocolate, roasty malts, dark fruits. Taste is rather sweet and turns roasty. Finish is smooth, rich and well balanced. No presence of the ABV at all.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Sample @ the brewery. Pours jet black with a small tan head. Aroma is heavy dark chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is the same, with the beer remaining deceptively smooth and drinkable. It was a tad off-beat as a stout, since I didn’t detect much coffee and the beer heavily favored chocolate, but it was quite lovely.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Bomber. Pours dark black with a light brown foamy head. Aroma is nice milk chocolate, sweet with low levels of roastiness, no hop presence that I can detect. Smooth. Taste is very smooth, rich, creamy with a clean chocolate flavor. While this is a nice beer it suffers from an identity issue. It is not quite bold and strong enought to be a good Imperial Stout yet it is a little over the top and highly priced for an American Stout. Still good though just a strange beer.

Bottle. Nose of roasted and toasted malts. Dark opaque black color with a phenomenal tan head and great lacing. Taste of dark chocolate, coffee, with a strong smoke finish. Active carbonation on the palate. Alcohol hiddend well

ThreeCats (759) - ISRAEL - OCT 12, 2013
Quite black with a nice solid mocha head. Aroma of heavy roast, lots of bittersweet chocolate, espresso. Taste of lots of black coffee, espresso, roast, bitter chocolate that lasts long into the palate. This beer has a lot of "chocolate" action going, but itís not sweet. Itís all dark high-coco percent bitter chocolate stuff. Very nice.

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Brewed in the USA........Courtesy of AFI96, thanks Waylo !!! Pours black in color with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, dark malts, raisins and mild coffee. Taste is also of chocolate, dark malts and dough. The mouthfeel is thin, bold, slight dry, and worth looking for. Overall, a pretty good Stout.

Pour from a 750 ml. bottle. Black brown with a good tan mocha head. Great aromas of chocolate, molasses, and licorice. Nice thickness but not syrupy. Flavors of complexity include smoky sweet malt, bitter hops,. Very good bitter somewhat dry finish. Excellent stout.
