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.

Awesome beer. Been wanting to try this one for a while and it was worth the wait. Pours black with fluffy tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate dominate throughout. So silky smooth on the tongue with a chocolate sweetness, that is very deceiving. Can’t wait to enjoy another one of these some day!

Black pour with tan head. Aroma is rum soaked raisins drenched in brown sugar. Flavour brings out burnt malts with dark fruits. The finish is burnt with some alcohol warmth. Great.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2008 Cask at Hamilton’s, shared with WeeHeavySD. Poured black with a foamy, light brown head. Sharp/sweet aroma of malt, dark fruits, burnt toast, and dark chocolate. Taste starts sharp and quite sweet and then moves into toasted malt, with a hint of grass. Lingering sweet toastyness. Nice chocolate taste and creamy mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2016 On tap at St. Augustine’s. Almost black, brown head. Aroma is berries, dark fruits, roasted malt. Taste is liquorice, roasted malt, berries and alcohol (heh) notes. Burnt malt aftertaste. Very good.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours extremely dark brown, almost completely black, with a lasting dense tan head. Aroma is rather restrained but appealing with hints of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, smoke and dark fruit. Flavour is bolder and roastier with notes of oak, tar, dark chocolate, smoke and vanilla. Thick, creamy mouthfeel with prickly carbonation and a long roasty finish. Well crafted, complex and very easy to drink, this stout isn’t as rich and sweet as a lot of Imperials but it still has plenty going on .

Darwenus (905) - Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Looks like a chocolate desert, dark brown with a big, foamy head. The aroma is rich and slightly tart, and the taste is big and strong. there isn’t a lot in the front, but the malt announces itself in the middle and then there’s big, dark chocolate and a smooth, smokey, dark-roast coffee finish. the 8.8% ABV isn’t a presence in the taste at all.

greenclansman (905) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - SEP 21, 2013
Dark but not too thick. Aromas of roasted malts and coffee. Taste of earth/soil, roasted malts, coffee and a dry bitter aftertaste. Very nice beer.

bwa5879 (904) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Black pour with dark brown hue, quarter inch of bran flake brown head. Aroma of sweet hay, iron, sweet chocolate, bourbon and smokey mesquite. A bit lower than average carbonation, thin bodied for a stout, smooth finish. Flavors of dark fruit, licorice, mostly bitter. Not a bad stout, straightforward and lacking on complexity.

stantheman (904) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2009
UPDATED: APR 18, 2015 Right up there with the really good stouts. Thick medium brown head. Coffee and chocolate notes that are probably just very well roasted barley. Nice finish. Very pleasant overall.

April 18, 2015 on tap at John B Pub in Coquitlam. Still a great impy stout. I don’t have an Old Rasputin available at the moment for a side by side comparison, but I doubt it is the equal of that venerable brew. Damn good, though!
