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.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2013 In bottle, aged a little over a year. Pours black with thin tan head. Very roasty with a creamy finish. Also, well hopped for a big stout. Very good beer.

Pours deep and rich of the blackest brown yet to be seen. Out of the bottle and into the glass looks of creamy silkiness. A thick double dollup of foamy tan head sits atop this silky darkness. Aromatics are rich, with deep roasted malts rich coffee nuiances and some bittersweet chocolate malts. Rich tasting with good flavor. Lots of your prototypical flavors here. Rich burnt/roasted malts, heavy doses of coffee and dark chocolates. Hop pop is light with some bittering to keep those malts in line a bit. A rather thick drinking beer but smooth and creamy going down. A sweet/ bitter taste. I think this is a very good beer with all flavors balancing nicely with one another. Alcohol is well hidden.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Served into a snifter with a dark color and a nice darker tan head that isn’t to heavy and doesn’t last very long. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, fruit, maybe some chocolate. Tastes initially of better coffee and roasted malt but has a nice finish maybe a little harsh on the back-end with some coffee and chocolate. I initially thought it was light in body but as the drink went on it was medium/medium-heavy in body and not overcarbonated. Overall a decent stout that I would drink again.

Hoptagon (239) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2008
22 oz. Bottle. Looks exactly as a good stout should, oily black with a robust tan head that laces nicely. Aroma shows hints of coffee and cocoa. Flavor is roasty with crystal and chocolate malt characters showing. Hops are grassy and lend a slightly bitter streak to the otherwise malty profile of this beer. Mouthfeel is excellent with a persistent and well balanced level of carbonation. The beer breaks down a bit at the end and leaves an ashy taste on the tongue. Overall a respectable slightly sweet stout.

Another Green Flash home run - great complex stout flavor and an extremely enjoyable bomber.

Dark brown to black body with a thick brown head. Good retention. Roasted malt aroma, licorice, chocolate, some chocolate and alcohol. Sweet taste. Full body, thick texture.

Super dark brown pour, looks black in the glass, about two fingers of tan head after a fairly vigorous pour. There are aromas of baker’s chocolate, espresso, some spice, a little smoke and some interesting yeast quality that reminds me of fresh baked bagels. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee, slight smoke and finishes with a little sweetness. I don’t taste any of the alcohol and it drinks very well. Quite pleasurable, very nice!

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2011
A big and very thick pour, obviously so from the opaque quality of the body and the lasting creamy head. A nice roasty aroma greets you, with some chocolate smoothness detectable. Taste is heavy on the espresso characteristics, with a bit of a lactic quality emerging in the finish, along with smooth milk chocolate, and a subtle sweet berry character. A very nice stout from this fine brewery.
