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.

Bottle. Pitch black with dark tan head. Aroma is lovely roast malts, floral and coffee sweetness, . The flavor is where it shines...slightly lactic, nicely fruity, very bitter but still balanced. It develops nicely with earth, pepper, and coffee. The mouthfeel starts light and silken with lively carbonation and becomes dry and lingers bitter. Hides the alcohol very well. Great stout.

ADfan (737) - 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.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2008
Bottle. Black pour, nice thick head. Rich aroma of chocolate, coffee. Same strong, bitter coffee flavors and some nice roasty characteristics on the flavor. Not sticky like some Imp Stouts. Clean, at least for the style, and overall a good stout.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Bomber. Ribbon of opaque black pour to a building dark tan creamy head with lots of lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee and semi-sweet chocolate. Initial flavor of espresso and chocolate followed quickly by anise, vanilla, and a touch of faint smoke. Some caramel rounds out the taste and almost seems to bind the flavors together. Classic West Coast bitter note leads into a long, smooth and flavorful finish. Very silky and inviting texture. A really nice and well-crafted stout. Green Flash is no flash in the pan.

darkguardian (728) - Florida, USA - APR 1, 2009
22oz bottle. Great beer from a brewery you don’t hear much about. Pours nearly black with a nice sized chocolate colored long lasting head. Nice lacing and leaves great oil legs in the glass, something I look for in a good impy. Flavor is roasty but not overly so balanced with lots of chocolate and coffee. No real hops to speak of, but its my kind of imperial stout, big rich and full with a luxurious mouthfeel. This is underated.

BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - DEC 2, 2012
Black colored beer with a very small beige head. Nose of burned malts, caramel, dark fruits, liqueur and alcohol. Bitter flavors coming from burned malts. Strong liqueurice mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Alcohol warming in the aftertaste.

ThreeCats (727) - 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 it’s not sweet. It’s all dark high-coco percent bitter chocolate stuff. Very nice.

Darwenus (723) - 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 isn’t a lot in the front, but the malt announces itself in the middle and then there’s big, dark chocolate and a smooth, smokey, dark-roast coffee finish. the 8.8% ABV isn’t a presence in the taste at all.

dwm1034 (721) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2011
12 oz bottle...pours almost black with thick but quickly fading head...minimal lacing. Earthy nose; mild / smooth / malty taste with little hint of the 8.8% abv....this one will sneak up on you, I am sure....bottom line...tasty and smooth.
