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.

yngwie (13617) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2010
Bottle, 22oz. It’s a black beer topped by a dense, finger-thick beige to tan head. It’s just beautiful to look at. The aroma has roasted malts and a pleasant chocolate and coffee scent. Not that dark chocolate, milk chocolate is the thing here. The flavor has some sweetness, but meaty chocolate and coffee do most of the job, and there’s also a touch of orange. I would like more hoppy flavors. Full-bodied and warming, quite smooth on the palate. There’s some bitterness in the finish, but also here I would like a little more. A super-drinkable beer with lots of nice flavors. Definitely worth a revisit. 100115
