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.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Pours black with a resilient tan head. Aroma is chocolate, some nuttiness, a little dark fruit (raisins), coffee. Taste is creamy, bitter chocolate, a bit dry, with a bitter chocolate and coffee finish; a nicehop character. Pretty mild and drinkable, even for the alcohol content. Definitely one to drink.

12oz bottle to pint. Dark black pour. Moderately thick. Minimal head. Dark roasted flavor with some serious chocolate. Nice and smooth from the oats. Some hop presence. I could drink this all night.

Draft. Thick and dark as used oil, this stuff is an intimidating pitch black. Itís topped with one finger of silky graham cracker head that becomes a thin top layer that grips the glass in full sheets. The aroma is a enticing blend of cocoa, coffee, toast and peanuts. Each sniff reveals a solid new notes: vanilla, molasses and more. Soft sweetness; great roast character. Bigger molasses and anise in the flavor, paired with equally forceful burnt toast and charcoal. A creamy blend of dark chocolate, cream and vanilla bean adds just enough sweetness. The bodyís a creamy medium, nice and velvety. Carbonation is a little high and prickly, breaking the beer into too much fizz. Some heat appears on the tongue, with accompanying warmth on the way down the throat. Nice.

Bottle. Blackish purple pour. Inch plus tan head. Aroma is big bold roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and toffee. Taste is coffee, and milk and dark chocolate with a bitter finish. Body is dense, palate is smooth and thick. A ton of tan lacing is left on the glass after the beer is finished.

Darwenus (659) - Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2012
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.

ADfan (659) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Pours almost black in the glass with a beige head. Aroma has coffee with some chocolate, there is also some sugar.Taste is very smooth with an espresso quality and some cocoa powder. Mild bitter finish that gives the beer great balance.

ChazMania (659) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 25, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2011 Bomber. Thick and very dark. Good roasted earthy aromas wafting up to my nose. The flavor is big and full but not over the top, itís actually very easy to drink. Iím surprised itís called an 8.8% beer as itís very smooth. I think I have enjoyed every beer I have sampled from Green Flash and this is no exception. Updated 1/30/11: from 4.1 to 4.3, just better on palate and overall experience from original rating.

Brenhophead (656) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2012
This is my first ever imperial stout.. after about a year of trying many, many beer styles i think my palate is prepared. Pours blacks and thick with a mocha head and a big espresso noise on it with a slight ash + hop tone. Has a creamy mouth feel and is very sweet in the taste with a hard to detect bitterness although i can really taste the alcohol. Alot of the coffee comes through to the taste also with a slight liquorice? I didnt mind this beer was quite warming and i can see why these are good for winter.

mikesaum (656) - Newark, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Pours black with a dark reddish brown head, aroma of.milk chocolate mostly, a hint of bitter coffee. Taste is mostly chocalte as well, a bit earthy, not real complex, but a good brew overall.
