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.

Bomber. Opaque brown/black color with a very impressive dark tan head. Aromas of dark roasted/toasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium plus body with very smooth and creamy carbonation. A touch of tar in the flavor, as well as dark roast (not burnt) malt, coffee, cacao and just maybe some floral/fruity hop. It’s very sturdy, and quite impressive. It actually seems to get fruitier with time. Brilliant. Reasonably dry too.
