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.

hivemind (890) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Tap @ Pony w Streets. Fuck you James. Pours black with slightly red hue and tan to brown head. Aroma heavy on coffee and nuts (hazelnut, walnut). Tempted to believe this is the double coffee stout but I’m going by what the menu says here. Medium mouthfeel and flavors of nuts, coffee, touch of dark, bitter chocolate. Roasty. Kind of tastes like a brown ale. Good.

renffisch (890) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle at the Grant Grill, San Diego. Pitch black, fine brown head, fine strong carbonation. Lovely coffee and roasted hazelnut nose, earthy bitter floral notes in flavour with the dreamiest dark chocolate finish!

tightslice (889) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is licorice, teriyaki beef jerky, molasses. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee, caramalized onions, peppered steak. Chewy... Beefy... Rich... AND Hoppy (of course coming from Green Flash). This is a thick boy’s thick boy.

pilgrimoutlaw (888) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle pours pitch black with foamy tan head. Extremely creamy, smooth, thick body. Aromas of roast, chocolate, earth. Moderate bitterness is offset by sweetness. Like drinking a milk-shake. Very nice.

furthur (879) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Growler pour, black body, chestnut head fades rapidly. Aroma coffee, smoke, fruit, molasses. Flavor vanilla, coffee, cola, grapefruit rind. Body is thick, with good viscosity, But carbonation is almost too sharp for a stout. This is a really hoppy stout. Another black IPA almost. Good, but crosses the hops line a bit too far, for my idea of stout. I like it, but the balance is too far towards hops to be great.

markducommun (875) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Black brown with a slight reddish tint. Almost no head. Strong notes of chocolate, coffee, caramel, earthy. Quite sweet, some bitterness. Upfront alcohol, pretty heavy body, some acidity, almost no carbonation. Long dry finish. Good.
