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.

RRistow12 (313) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Tasted from draft. Pours a dark brown almost black with tan head. Robust aroma of roasted malt and some dark chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate and hints of coffee up front. Chocolate taste is consistent throughout finishing with a mild bitterness and alcohol taste. Fairly dry and not too sweet. Medium to full bodied. Overall a very good stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours with a massive creamy head that takes a while to die down. Creaminess follows into the body. Great beer.

Bottle from P&M-Getränke. Black color with a creamy, decent brown head. Soft aromas of toffee, coffee and bread. Great flavors of burned malt, with an oily addition of coffee, which turns pleasantly bitter in the end. Earthy, breadish flavors give this beer a warming and recognizable character. Carbonation is unusal high, making this even fuller-bodied, by adding a refreshing, slightly metallic note to the beer. Coffee goes along with underlying hints of plums and raisins, giving the beer a bodacious ending. Mouthfeel is troughout silky, smooth, with a long ending, which adds a notable bitterness, absorbing the otherwise too present malt-sweetness. As the beer warms up, spicy hints of alcohol, still well included in the overall taste, become present. Misses a little more balance, but becomes more interessting, course of the high carbonation, which makes this a very refreshing, active stout.

This beer pours black, no light through anywhere in the glass with a dark khaki head. It smells of dark chocolates and oats taste of dark chocolate, maltyness followed by bitterness as it gets warmer the bitterness tones down. I enjoy this beer

Koskela (308) - 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.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Poured a pitch dark, with a nice tan head. The aroma has some strong coffee and a little chocolate. The taste is very heavy on strong dark coffee, with some roasted malts and a bit of booze on the finish. The body is medium/heavy, with a very nice pleasant palate. For a stout this is a very enjoyable brew.

Roasty coffee and dry dark chocolate aromas. Brown bubbly head and very dark brown body. Roasty dark coffee and earthy chocolate flavors. Smooth on the palate.
