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.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Bottle, poured black into the glass with a nice tan head. Smell was chocolate covered malted milk balls. Yum. Taste was well rounded, rich and tasty. Big chocolate, oatmeal, molasses and a great smooth finish. Enough balancing hop to keep it drinkable. Good stuff.

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Poured from a bottle into a glass. Black pour with a mocha brown head that is thick with lacing. Aroma dominated by dark roast malt and chocolate. Taste is a great balance of dark malts, mild coffee and dark chocolate with a bitter finish. Smooth mouth feel with mild carbonation. Thick body. Great.

fiercepanda (606) - Missouri, USA - JUL 13, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2014 A black beer with a small tan head that leaves nice lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee, and cocoa. The flavor is cocoa, a little coffee, and black licorice.

Scubatrip (605) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2010
From the bottle, pours black with a thick brown foamy head. Aroma is dark chocolate, roasted malts, some alcohol. Taste is similar. Dark roasted malts with some earthy hops that leave a bitter feel in the aftertaste. Heavy but not really thick, smooth and creamy, with flavors of dark chocolate and a hint of alcohol. This is pretty good.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 6, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2008 On tap at Taproom. Full bodied, rich, bursting with rich dark chocolate, and a dry, bitter, long coffee finish. I really liked this one. Very well done indeed.

Darwenus (601) - 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.

Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and bacon. Taste follows nose with some piney hops in the background.

mbgrayson (596) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Pours black, with a tan head. Aroma of malt. The taste is rich and bold with lots of roasty coffee along with hints of toffee, caramel, vanilla, subtle smoke, espresso, cocoa, and bitter dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with decent balance and a fairly dry, bitter finish. Overall, this is a very solid and drinkable stout, thumbs up.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Foamy tan head with black thick body. Smells of chocolate and cereal and dark carmel riesen candy. Very rich with espresso and chocolate bitters. Caramel and roasted malt. Very nice.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2008
This poured black in color with a thick light brown head that faded away. The nose was filled with aromas of bittersweet chocolate, coffee and some fig/prune scents. In the mouth it was medium to full-bodied, rich and smooth. The flavors followed the nose with a well-balanced midpalate that finished smooth yet slightly bitter. Overall it was quite nice albeit a bit simple.
