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 Ė Double Stout.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2011 Bomber. Thick and very dark. Good roasted earthy aromas wafting up to my nose. The flavor is big and full but not over the top, itís actually very easy to drink. Iím surprised itís called an 8.8% beer as itís very smooth. I think I have enjoyed every beer I have sampled from Green Flash and this is no exception. Updated 1/30/11: from 4.1 to 4.3, just better on palate and overall experience from original rating.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 14, 2010
Bottle dragged from the cellar where it has been resting for some time. The pour is beautyful black with a nice fluffy brown head. Spot on. The nose is coffee and mighty burned with light hoppy notes. The taste is warm and pleasent. with a medium palate thet are smooth without beeing sticky. The balance is spot on. The burned malts along with licorice and chocolate topped with some light bitterness from hops. The finish is round with lots off coffee and bitter notes. Damn this is a good beer. Im a fan... must have more. Thanx

JB84 (649) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2011
Pour deep brown almost black with large light brown head. Excellent lacing. Aroma coffee, a tad earthy, roasty and vanilla. Taste of grassy bitterness, chocolate, coffee, earthiness and hints of vanilla. MF is outstanding satin velvety smooth with a very fine carb and outstanding mouth coating quality. Great beer very well brewed.

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.

zenkis (638) - Ogre, LATVIA - MAY 10, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 bottle. Pours almost black with dark reddish tones, brown creamy medium top with medium retention, middle lacing. Aroma - good intensity, dominant roasted malt with notes of burnt, light sweetness, far away chocolate, creamy, almost no fruitiness. First saps are sharp, umami (I would like to describe it as robust but must understand what "geeks" mean with this word) - seems like from over carbonation, but it is medium CO2 filled. Later mouthfeel seems more gentle, creamy with dry, hopping bitter, long finish, thick texture, although palate is not so silky, so smooth like even "Founders" porter. Taste is minimal malty sweet, backboned by roast and burnt bitter as well as hopping bitter - medium. O.A. - very good brew, but I canít exactly explain why - maybe simplicity of balance make it good, maybe something else, but I canít find any less than good aspect of this brew although I would prefer more silky, more sweet and more complex flavor dark beers but then I must go and find some of according style. So - cause I yet canít figure out the big difference between stouts and porters I would say - good dark roasted type brew.
