4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From 12oz bottle. Pours jet black with a thick tan head. Aroma has a satisfying mix of coffee, burnt molasses, honey, and malt. Lightly carbonated and deliciously slick on the tongue. The taste is amazing with a mix of roasted malt, slightly bitter coffee flavors balanced by a malty sweet body, mildly hopped bitterness and with some very unique sour overtones that make this a very complex and satisfying double s
stout. The 8.8% ABV heat is well hidden and this beer is very drinkable. An awesome and original take on the style. I will definitely be stocking a six pack or two in my fridge for future consumption.

Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, little vanilla. Taste is extremely nice; medium body chocolates, carmel, roasted malts, coffee, sweet dry finish, bitterness on the finish. Very nice! Overall; I can see why this is rated so high for a foreign stout. Extremely well balanced and really drinkable. Didnít get the 8.8% at all! Really good!! Cheers!

Very roasty and dark malt aroma with pitch black appearance. Nice lacing and general feel of this brew. Very roast and malty flavor and a hint of hops with oats to finish out this nice stout.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Green Flash Brewery tasting room. A dark stout with a nice brown head when it comes out of the tap. Initial taste is a robust roasted dark malt flavor with a slight hop bite. A hint of dark chocolate in the aftertaste and boasts an ABV > 8%. A fantastic addition to the Green Flash line.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Huge aroma with chocolate, coffee, caramel, alcohol and roasted notes. Dark black appearance with a nice head. Lots of chocolate, coffee, some dark fruits, mild alcohol. Very complex with a reasonably bitter finish. Full bodied although slightly on the light side for an imperial stout. Fantastic beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance - One finger head, mocha brown head, leaves a bit of lacing. The head fades quickly as expected for a beer with such a high ABV. Pitch black with no light coming through the glass.
Aroma - Big roasted malts. I get some oats as well. A hint of sweet chocolate malt and a tad bit of alcohol. As it heats up you get much more alcohol in the aroma. No hops what so ever which is almost shocking for a Green Flash beer.
Taste - For double/imperial stout you get a medium mouth feel, mainly from the oats used. Up front you get rich roasted malt character. At colder temperatures it goes down very smooth and leaves a dry finish. As with most dark beers, as you let it warm up, the true characters of the beer come into play. You still get the rich roastyness on the front of your tongue but as it gets to mid tongue you get slightly sweet coffee notes just before the Target hops balance out the malts before going too sweet light some double/imperial stouts do. It finishes with bitter-sweet roasted notes and the 8.8% ABV makes its presence known. Overall the Double Stout is one smooth drinker.
