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.

This was the 2nd best stout of the night after the Hoppin’ Frog. Great aromas of roasted malts, milk chocolate and some vanilla notes. Big, creamy flavors that lean towards a dry stout. Malty and super tasty. Another winner from Green Flash (hey Green Flash - I know a couple great places for a brewery here in Philadelphia!!)

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2014 Superb beer. Not coffee, not chocolate - just malt and hops beer. Rich and complex, but most importantly, eminently enjoyable. A definite benchmark of the style.

Barwa: czarna , nieprzejrzysta. Piana brązowa, początkowo średnio potem drobno pęcherzykowa, niezbyt obfita i szybko opadająca. Aromat: czekolada, kawa, ale mniej intensywny niż butelki, wyraźna również paloność. Smak: słodycz, potem cierpkie, palone słody, czekolada gorzka i kawa.

12 oz bottle. Pours a black with tan head and lacing, light barely passed. Aroma is mild, bitter chocolate, malt, and slight lactic note. Flavor is roasted malt and slight chocolate sweetness. Balanced, yet nondescript.

slight sweetness in the taste, a bit salty feel. No real coffee / chocolate aroma’s for me but otherwise the standard stout attributes. medium body, nice finish. Good stout , but doesn’t blow my mind away

Brewbie (455) - New York, USA - MAR 18, 2013
12oz bottle. deep dark black pour with a solid tan head. aroma of roast, malt, dark sweetness. thick mouth, heavy taste of roast and chocolate, a light bitterness in the finish. very creamy, really enjoy that toasted roast finish. never notice the 8.8% at all.

chicowv (455) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2010
Pours a dark chocolate black. Head is nice and lacing persists throughout. Aroma is a dark chocolate malt. Strong on the palate with a lasting finish. Big in every way.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 16, 2011
12oz bottle. Very dark pour, as black as it gets, coffee color head. Aromas are bold and potent, cocoa and coffee, more like a black coffee. Palate follows very well, its so smooth hiding the abv very well. Coffee dominates the finish, it’s quite the great stout for being so accessable. Very well done!
