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.

Pours a wickedly viscous black topped with a brown head. Aroma is heavily of chocolate, milk chocolate mixed with bitter dark chocolate, laced with a roasty edge of pure espresso. Taste is a heady blend of chocolate, coffee and roast, with a sweet fresh bread underbelly and just enough hops to make the beer nicely balanced. Beautifully integrated alcohol and sinfully wonderful full body. Luscious and lascivious to the core!

Pours with a great khaki head that lasts forever. Aroma is coffee an roasted malt with a touch of ash. Flavor exhibits flavor with a touch of smoke with a roasted flavor with an interesting earthy hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is not as thick as expected. Nice beer restrained beer.

Beers pours super dark with a nice creamy head. Taste is good on the front but a really bitter after taste. Really wanted to like this, especially since the price of the 4-pack is a little steep, but the bitter after taste left it lacking for me.

Bottle. Thanks, mrdeath5493. Pours a coffee brown with a big brown head that dissipates fairly quickly. The aroma is sweet and chocolatey. Round and earthy. The flavor is bittersweet, and oh my God is the palate smooth. Velvety and delightful. In the finish there is a slight alcoholic burn. A fantastic beer.

I poured a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Unlike many big stouts, where the abv (and/or a bit of age) overwhelms the yeast and leads to a still-ish pour, this raised an enthusiastic 2-inch khaki head with hints of otherworldly red. The body sat inky black but lively, and laced the glass abundantly as it went down. Aromas of roast coffee and fennel suggested a tasty but generic big stout, but the flavor profile proved a bit more subtle, with waves of chocolate and hand-drawn espresso smoothing out the harsher edges that these beers sometimes maintain. The palate is smooth and pillowy, suggesting the texture of cotton candy. Overall, this is a fantastically light yet powerfully flavorful treat, and yet another feather in the crowded cap of the folks at Green Flash.

Pours an opaque black with caramel colored head. Heavy lacing and aromas of roasted coffee beans and chocolate. Has an earthy, somewhat nutty taste with hints of cinnamon and cloves. Nice beer.

djroehler (290) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle. Pour is black, deep red at the thinnest edge, with a very small brown head. Aroma is heavy roasted malt, caramel, coffee, light cocoa, a little toast in the back. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, some toffee, citrus in the back, cinnamon, sweeter as it lingers, and finished dry at the very end. A little thin for a double.

Dark as night. Dry and taste of dark chocolate. Perfectly carbonated. Balansed Stout.

g_georgiou (285) - CYPRUS - APR 29, 2014
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.
