4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
