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.

22 oz. bottle, very dark brown, nearly black with tan head. Nose of dark roasted grains and chocolate. Rather hoppy but well balanced by plentiful sweet malt. Chocolate and coffee flavors dominate but I can taste some molasses. Goes down smooth and has a lively, creamy palate. Another great brew from Green Flash.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2013 Pretty enjoyable beer. Has a great solid black color. Aroma of coffee and malts. Flavor follows. Extremely drinkable for the high alcohol. Overall very good.

Believe the hype! Most excellent brew! Espresso, coffee aroma. Dark. Foreboding. Smooth froth. Light head. Hoppy, even within the realm of stouts. Complex notes of chocolate and haze. One of the year’s best! Seek out this one!

Bottle. Pours black with a decent lingering brown frothy to creamy head that only leaves a bit of lacing. Aromas of chocolate, burnt malt, orange rind and tangerine. Taste is light to medium bitter, average carbonation, light to medium body, oily to creamy texture and lightly bitter throughout the long finish. Excellent.

Smooth, malty stout with little smell. Tasty but one dimensional, inoffensive but not over whelming. Rated by BrewTom

Dark malty chocolate flavor, light brown carbonation. Good, but can’t hang with other California stouts like old 38, old rasputin, or lagunitas imperial ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leepe_steven (158) - Lede, BELGIUM - MAR 10, 2013
Pours pitch black with beautifull tan head. Aroma reminds me a lot of coffee and smeels a bit roasted too. Taste is superb and very well balanced with hints of coffee, caramel.

horto008 (156) - Alabama, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Everything a stout should be. Medium thick head that dissipate slowly. Bitterness was enjoyable and has the chocolate overtone with a touch of smoke. Powerful in flavor but not over the top as iis common in RIS and other imperials. Slightly sour especially with the coffee note.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick black color with a very brief tan head that disappears rather quickly. Aroma is of roasted malt, vanilla, coffee, brandy, licorice and coffee...very interesting. Full bodied, all of the aromas appear in the taste. Sweet finish. Great beer!
