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.

Pours a dark, dark black with a thick, foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted grain, coffee, chocolate, even some leather. Flavor has coffee and chocolate, some licorice, roasted grain. There’s a fairly pronounced alcohol taste in the background. Full mouthfeel with a bitter finish.

willisread (724) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 19, 2015
12oz bottle from Old Town in Louisville. Poured into a stemmed tulip. Pitch black color with a beautiful milk chocolate head. Nice aromas of coffee, leather and chicory. Creamy mouthfeel with a nice long dry finish. Excellent Imperial Stout.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Bottle. I don’t see any light coming through, so we’ll call it black. Tan colored espresso foam head with a light lacing trailing down the glass. Aroma of brown sugar, almond, vanilla, and alcohol. Flavor is medium roast, milk chocolate, vanilla, oatmeal, a bit of nutiness, and a fresh ripe fruitiness. Medium to full bodied with a lively carbonation and silky smooth texture. Finishes with notes of pepper, a nice wallop of resinous Euro hops, and a mild alcohol warmth on the back of the throat. No complaints here.

Naka (716) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Pours pitch black with a small dark beige head. Some lacing. Flavor has tons of molassas and some decent roasted character. A little bittersweet cocoa with slight vanilla. Body is very rich, but maybe just compared to the other things I’ve been drinking today. Leaves a bitter roasted flavor on the tongue.

stoutnick (715) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 16, 2013
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%!).

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2009 Pours straight black with no light penetration at all. Thick 2-finger wide creamy head forms and never leaves. Smells of deep roasted coffee, and small hints of chocolate. The mouthfeel is full and lovely, a little oily. The taste is very nice...rich and roasty with some hints of raisin, licorice, and vanilla. Chocolate and coffee are most notable, however. Finishes very smooth and easy. A very nice stout!

sulawang (708) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2012
pours ink jet black, small creamy foamy head, light ringed retention, minor lacing, slow clustered streams. Aromatic coffee on the nose. Ultra satin creamy mouthfeel up front, 7/10-sweetness, roasted coffee, cocoa, bitter chocolate, burnt malts, finishing smooth and lingering bittersweet. Med-high complexity, med-high depth, great transitions, great depth, great drinkability. An excellent stout for a fab price.

EricTeusink (704) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Working on filling out my style card. First Foreign Stout. Seems more like a Porter than a Stout to me. Need to drink a Porter, Stout, and Foreign Stout side-by-side to get a good feel for the minute differences. Pours nearly black with dark tan head an great lacing. Booze and nondescript roasted scent. Sweet front with long bitter finish. Medium-heavy body. Bottle - Ale Yeah! - Decatur, GA

Black with light bron head. Very sweet coffee and chocolate aroma and taste. Roasted coffee beans flavour.

This was another fine beer from Green Flash and a rather good one poured with a nice black look and with a little brown head that last for a while.The abv was not that strong but as it warmed it was present and more flavors come out like roasted malts and a nice creamy finish another nice find in my cellar.CHEERS!
