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.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2013 Light black with tan head. Aroma is caramel malts and slight mocha. taste is bitterness, toffee and caramel; perfectly balanced between the three. Yum, and so easy to drink. Palate is not too big - bitter with some caramel. Overall, the perfect sessional stout, though a big one at that (8.8%!).

Pours almost black in the glass with a beige head. Aroma has coffee with some chocolate, there is also some sugar.Taste is very smooth with an espresso quality and some cocoa powder. Mild bitter finish that gives the beer great balance.

mbgrayson (538) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Pours black, with a tan head. Aroma of malt. The taste is rich and bold with lots of roasty coffee along with hints of toffee, caramel, vanilla, subtle smoke, espresso, cocoa, and bitter dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with decent balance and a fairly dry, bitter finish. Overall, this is a very solid and drinkable stout, thumbs up.

bigbish (534) - California, USA - APR 27, 2013
This was a decent stout, but nothing to write home about. I didn’t think it was as complex as some of the other stuff out there (like Yeti) and it lacked body. Good stuff, but not great.

LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Cold 22oz bottle: Pours an opaque, dark brown color with a small, persistent tan head that leaves some lacing behind. Aroma is of roasted malts with some cherries and grass. Taste is of roasted malts blended with chocolate and grassy hops. Full bodied and smooth, with good carbonation. Ending is of bitter coffee with some caramel and alcohol notes.

demmbonz (530) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2013
12oz bottle to pint. Dark black pour. Moderately thick. Minimal head. Dark roasted flavor with some serious chocolate. Nice and smooth from the oats. Some hop presence. I could drink this all night.

paco (527) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 24, 2010
Bottle. Nearly black. Mocha head hugs glass. Full of aromas. Thick roasted malts. dark chocolate, coffee, oatmeal and dark fruits as well. Some alcohol notes if you really dig. Big solid roasty flavor. Coffee, bitter chocolates, oatmeal and a long bitter finish. Full warm body. Very smooth and well balanced. I discover new flavors each time I have one of these.

Westkyoto77 (526) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle. Not as much in the aroma as I had expected, but looks good and stouty. Lots of oats, bitter chocolate, dark fruit and coffee. Smooth as you like. Alcohol barely registers. A real winner- will look out for this in future.

650ml bottle. Pours black with small amount of beige head. Nose is dark chocolate, coffee, and raisin. Body creamy with notes of dark chocolate, molasses, and some light roasted coffee. Finish is lightly bitter coffee, but lingering. Nice imperial stout!
