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.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 14, 2010
Bottle dragged from the cellar where it has been resting for some time. The pour is beautyful black with a nice fluffy brown head. Spot on. The nose is coffee and mighty burned with light hoppy notes. The taste is warm and pleasent. with a medium palate thet are smooth without beeing sticky. The balance is spot on. The burned malts along with licorice and chocolate topped with some light bitterness from hops. The finish is round with lots off coffee and bitter notes. Damn this is a good beer. Im a fan... must have more. Thanx

JB84 (649) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2011
Pour deep brown almost black with large light brown head. Excellent lacing. Aroma coffee, a tad earthy, roasty and vanilla. Taste of grassy bitterness, chocolate, coffee, earthiness and hints of vanilla. MF is outstanding satin velvety smooth with a very fine carb and outstanding mouth coating quality. Great beer very well brewed.

Brenhophead (649) - 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.

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 isnt a lot in the front, but the malt announces itself in the middle and then theres big, dark chocolate and a smooth, smokey, dark-roast coffee finish. the 8.8% ABV isnt a presence in the taste at all.
