Although Green Flash excels in the IPA department, their double stout runs in the top third of the pack. Set this up next to 5 or 6 other top double Stouts and there’s not a whit of difference among them.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with a dark brown two finger head. Smells like cocoa, coffee and smoke. Taste very dark with a burnt malt bitterness, chocolate and oatmeal sweetness, some earth and wood, and a very smooth creamy texture. After taste is a smokey bitterness. Overall a great stout for those who enjoy the darker flavors.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The pour isn't dark, dark brown, on the verge of black, with a thin dark khaki head and no lace. The aroma is a little strange. There is a good chocolate character and a lot of roast. I also pick up a dark fruit and licorice note. The flavor is bitter up front. It was a little surprising. But it does mimic the aroma. There is a little creaminess to it, but the flavors are the same. Chocolate, roast, licorice and dark fruits. The mouth feel is definitely thin, and the aftertaste lingers nicely. Dry and lightly bitter.

Pitch black and a nice creamy tan head with staying power. Roast coffee aroma. A bitter stout focused on the dark roast flavors, maybe a touch of cocoa. Dry. Limited in my opinion but you will like it if coffee is your thing.

Pours jet black with almost a two finger thick chocolate head. Smells of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Chocolate initially then lets of coffee flavour comes into play, alcohol is mostly hidden well with only small hints. Overall this beer was great on a cold rainy winters day.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Color megro opaco, con espuma beige. aromas a cereales, torrefacto y aceitunas negras (si, aceitunas). En boca entra suave dejando un final y un regusto amargo terroso propio de la avena. Con una carbonatación media su densidad no llega a ser alta, si bien su textura es sedosa. Muy buena.

This stout had one predominant feature upon my sampling...an extreme taste of coffee. Now do understand that I do not drink coffee and do not prefer the taste of coffee. But this stout was still very drinkable pouring a ruby brown with a dark mocha head that fades after a few minutes. You can’t taste any presence of alcohol yet a bitterness persists far beyond your sip. I was fortunate enough to get a tap sample in a growler from Bierkraft in Brooklyn NYC. www.bierkraft.com

A very nice well-balanced stout. Not chalky at all. Deep rich red black color with dark brown head. The 4 pack did not last long. Alcohol subtle, not too boozy though. Vanilla, smoke, caramel, cherry notes make a nice symphony of flavors here. Would love to have a bourbon barrel aged version of this stuff.
