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.

Very, very dark brown. Thick and creamy from oats. Plenty of chocolate and toast, molasses, prunes. Some yeast on the nose and a recessed hops in the aroma and taste. Very interesting profile, well balanced and delicious.

Tap. Black pour with a medium dark head. Relatively mild flavor for a stout- some hop bitterness but no overpowering roasted malt flavors. Smooth and easy drinking. It hides its alcohol content well. Pretty good overall.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Pours opaque black with a thick mocha head. Tons of cocoa in the aroma, a bit of sweet molasses, vanilla, coffee, and a little earthy breadiness. Flavor is quite sweet, with layers of chocolate, coffee, anise, vinous notes, and vanilla melding together. Nice traces of bitterness throughout compliment the smooth and somewhat sweet chocolate presence. Good stuff.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 25, 2010
On tap at Pizza Port (Solana Beach, CA): Pours black with a thick brown foamy head. Roasted malts in the nose as well as dark chocolate and some alcohol. Taste is similar with some added earthy hops and licorice that leaves an incredibly sweet and balanced mouthfeel with a delicate bitter hop finish. Drinkability: Heavy, not thick, smooth and creamy. Dark chocolate stands out. Pairing: Meat pie. Rebuy: Definitely. #288 on 25022010, DG.

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.

From draft. Deep, opaque pour of black. Wonderful stout aroma, light foam head, and well put together. Oddly, not MY first choice for a repeat, but a quality brew nonetheless.

coachd (477) - Missouri, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Aroma is hoppier than most stouts. I was expecting that from Green Flash. It also has some raisin, plum, booze and an earthy scent. Appearance is black with an off-white clingy ring of foam. Taste is roasty, hoppy, not very complex but good. Palate was disappointing. Way more watery than a 99 rated imperial stout should be. Overall good but not great. Might buy again, won’t go out of my way to look for it.

A very dark and creamy stout. Very light hints of coffee as well as a lot of earth. Nothing sticking out as outstanding in any category, yet it was a delicious beer overall. It would make a great staple to keep in a keg if a big stout drinker.

Bottle, thanks J-Tiki. Pours a almosst solid black beer with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasty and hoppy. Flavor is a perfect balance of ingredients. Very nice
