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.

Koskela (388) - Marysville, California, USA - JUL 22, 2012
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.

Pretty nice, well done stout. Of course, stouts are easy to love. Especially when they are competent. This is for sure. Rich, roasty, chocolate. I mean, it’s what you are expecting. But it’s done right. I’d buy it again no doubt.

cmacklin (388) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
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.

tightslice (377) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is licorice, teriyaki beef jerky, molasses. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee, caramalized onions, peppered steak. Chewy... Beefy... Rich... AND Hoppy (of course coming from Green Flash). This is a thick boy’s thick boy.

Gramoit (377) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2012
Pours jet black with almost a two finger thick chocolate head. Smells of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Chocolate initially then lets of coffee flavour comes into play, alcohol is mostly hidden well with only small hints. Overall this beer was great on a cold rainy winters day.

Wow...very thick, very dark, heavy on the roasted malts. Heavy in the mouth. The feel-good drink of the night.

Appearance is spot on, jet black with milk chocolate head. Delicious aroma of coffee and chocolate with an effervescent bitter chocolate flavour

Onionkid (371) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle. Aroma is of roasted malts, dark chocolate and toffee. The flavor of the beer is primarily of roasted malts and dark chocolate. There’s a nice bitterness to the beer to go along with the sweetness. A nice mouthfeel, and is absolutely gorgeous when poured. Fantastic beer! 8.8% alcohol.
