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.

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.

On draft in snifter. The Green Flash Double Stout pours a very dark plumb to black with a thick frothy brown head that lasts a long while and leaves behind plenty of evidence of its existence. The aroma is loaded with malt with chocolate and caramel standing out, but I also notice some woodsy notes. The flavor is heavy on the chocolate with caramel and pine. Overall this is a very nice brew.

Pours black with a dark brown two finger head. Smells like cocoa, coffee and smoke. Taste very dark with a burnt malt bitterness, chocolate and oatmeal sweetness, some earth and wood, and a very smooth creamy texture. After taste is a smokey bitterness. Overall a great stout for those who enjoy the darker flavors.

Black, creamy brown head. Chocolate, roasty malts, dark fruits. Taste is rather sweet and turns roasty. Finish is smooth, rich and well balanced. No presence of the ABV at all.

Beer poured black with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasty dark malts with notes of coffee and fruit. Taste was bitter dark chocolate predominantly. Finish exhibited a pleasant burnt taste. Smooth finish. Mouthfeel was creamy. Medium body. Overall one of the best stouts I have had. Smooth, creamy, flavorful. A wonderful dessert beer.

michcam8 (347) - Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Pours a nice, rich, bold black color with a dark brown head. Not much lacing left on the glass. Aroma of coffee, licorice, chocolate, and cereal. Taste is a bit underwheleming...I was expecting a rich, complex flavor and it seem to be lacking. Alcohol is hidden well. Overall a descent stout, just expecting a little more flavor.

22 fl oz bottle. Dark brown, almost black colour with a large creamy tan head. Sweet roasted malt aroma with chocolate. Sweet flavour with roasted malt, chocolate, a hint of coffee and a bitter finish. Medium body, a smooth, creamy, oily texture and soft carbonation.

Dark and tasty. Alcohol hidden well by malts. Overall, a smooth stout. Nothing too great, but not too shabby. I will buy again.
