3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Roasty and silky, full bodied and very heavy. I love Green Flash, but this was kind of dissapointing. Not that it was at all bad, but I thought it could have a bit more flavor.

Draught @ Ballantine, Willoughby, OH
Wonderful roasted and chocolate aroma. Beatiful jet black color with dark tan foamy head. Tasting this beer completed the trifecta. Wonderful melange of chocolate, malt and hop flavors. Delicious and highly recommended.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a very dark brown/black that is opaque with a 1 cm tight bubbly brown head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma is mostly chocolate with some alcohol, malt, and dark fruit. Initial flavor is sweet chocolate that becomes more bitter and almost sour. Light carbonation, medium to full body, alcohol presence throughout, and moderate lacing. Overall a very solid stout worth a try as its availability continues to expand.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle hard poured into a snifter
Pours a opaque black with a three finger beige frothy head. Considerable lacing, as the head recedes, especially for a imperial/double stout. Aromas of chocolate, anise, and roasty malt flood the nostrils. The initial taste of chocolate and a touch coffee flows into dark fruit and anise and finishes with roasty bitterness, very complex. Wonderfully creamy and full bodied. A truly exceptional brew.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light coffee aroma, dark black body. Taste is light and then bursts with roasty flavor and bitter notes. Taste fades to bitter, almost sour. Palate is rather complex, but not for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Botella en el Kitsch (Gasteiz). Negra como el carbón, espuma, no muy abundante y color marrón oscuro. En nariz es un auténtico espectáculo...café, regaliz, toffe, maltas tostadas...en boca se confirma todo ello. No se nota demasiado el alcohol. Para mi gusto un pelín aguada, sin tanto cuerpo como otras scouts que he probado pero sin duda, un cervezón.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours thick like 3 year old motor oil. Sweet candy coffee carmel flavor with mild carbonation. Smooth finish leaves you asking for another sip. Great brew, try one!

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured onto a tulip. Pours pitch black with incredibly appetizing tan milky coffee head. Taste is really roasty hints of coffee and some dark.chocolate. this is a sophisticated imperial stout. Really complex mixture of flavor. Some Bourbon aspects as well. Green flash fucking rules.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pitch black with an oily, mocha head. Smell is of cocoa, burnt/roasted malts, espresso, and some sweetness. Taste is huge cocoa and coffee with a surprisingly present hop bite. Quite good. Medium body and easy drinking.
