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. Jet black with tan head and solid lacing. Coffee and chocolate on the nose. Thick, luscious mouthfeel courtesy of the oats, with chocolate, coffee and hop complexities giving interest towards the finish, The alcohol is integrated immaculately for such a big beer. Just what a stout should be.

Koskela (401) - Marysville, California, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Chocolatey and almost a bready aroma. A very full bodied dark brew with a little bit of a tan head. Very rich fulbodied chocolate taste with some coffee notes. Bitter aftertaste yet crisp. Very complex leaving my tounge bery busy. There is a slight alcohol feel in the after taste. A meal in a bottle. Not bad a very decent double stout minus the head. I was expecting a bit more and richer head but a good brew for sure. Worith a buy and a drink on a cold day.

Good stout, great maltiness not so much in the way of hops. Finishes with a rich cocoa flavour.

badwhale (396) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bomber to glass mug. Pours a dark brown or black. TAn head that dissapates. Fruit flavors, but not much of a hop profile, which is fine. Really smooth and tasty

markducommun (395) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Black brown with a slight reddish tint. Almost no head. Strong notes of chocolate, coffee, caramel, earthy. Quite sweet, some bitterness. Upfront alcohol, pretty heavy body, some acidity, almost no carbonation. Long dry finish. Good.

Although Green Flash excels in the IPA department, their double stout runs in the top third of the pack. Set this up next to 5 or 6 other top double Stouts and there’s not a whit of difference among them.

SimonRoller (391) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle, pours black with medium brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, licorice, some espresso, tar. Taste is pretty bitter with roasted malts, heavy roasted coffee, tar, ash, some smoke, licorice. Lots of taste, full body. Dry finish. Nice

anders8000 (390) - aarhus.c., DENMARK - NOV 21, 2012
Dark black pour with thick, lacing brown head. Reasonable amount of hop aroma, but not much in the flavor which is dominated by chocolate malt. High abv stout without the boozy taste.
