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 – Double Stout.

Very black, inky like syrup, brown head of about a finger that had some staying power and left decent lace. Coffee and chocolate come through first, followed by loads of roasty, smoky malts. The taste follows the smell almost exactly. Very nice. The body is this beer’s best quality, very thick and smooth, almost chewy rich, almost syrupy, yet very drinkable. Aftertaste of smoky malts and milk chocolate. Another hit from Green Flash. Highly recommended.

Pours inky with a quick brown head. Nose is coffee and fairly light on booze and hops for the style. Big coffee and cream flavor with modest hops. Finish is fairly quick and sticky.

Dark brown pour with tan head. Roasted malt aroma with chocolate with nuts and fruit hints. Very nice! Taste is more of the same, which is a good thing. A full bodied beer with a bitter finish but its all about balance! Great beer, I’m becoming a big fan of Green Flash. Keep it up!

The dbl stout has a deep black color with a ring of foam the hugs my glass. The aroma is very nice, filled with chocolate, roasted malts, yeast, coffee, lite hops, and dark fruit. As for flavor it contains an upfront bitterness from the chocolate, hops, and coffee. The bitterness fades from intensity and there is a nice sugary malt and yeast flavor. The aftertaste leaves my mouth with roasted malts, coffee, and hop flavors. Overall a nice brew.

Bottle 0.33l. Pours almost black with beige brown head. Aroma has chocolate, liquorice, roasted malt, molasses, prunes, dried fruits. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter, roasted, milk chocolate, prunes. Aftertaste is quite bitter with chocolate , soft carbonation, bit boozy. Good but quite heavy and complex.

I absolutely live how the roasted malt character leans toward aromas and flavors of pumpernickel, wheat bread and malt bread... With layers of dark roasted coffee beans, molasses, soy and charred meat. Smooth, rich, and creamy on the palate. Lingering notes of dark bread, molasses and coffee. A great stout. Worth trying. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Poured from 22 oz. bottle, thanks to Bulletrain76. Nice dark color, sweet taste with hints of chocolate and coffee. Full body with a nice texture and good finish.
