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.

Gespuccian (66) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 13, 2016
Aroma is dark roast malt, cocoa, some oat. Black in color, some tan head. Taste is full, sweeter than expected, but not at all cloying. Coffee, baker’s chocolate, roast. Mouthfeel is very smooth, from the oats, slight bitterness, but finish is not as dry as expected for a stout. Overall, a very good stout.

Towey1989 (1450) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2016
Bottle from The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a black colour with a foamy mocha head. Aroma of chocolate, cocoa, oats, some roasted malts, slight caramel, a little coffee and subtle vanilla. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, oats, some roasted malts, slight caramel, a little coffee, dark fruits and subtle soy sauce. Full bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, cocao bitterness in the finish. A full flavoured imperial stout, lots of roasted and chocolatey flavours. Less alcoholic than it is and perfectly balanced. Lovely.

JohnGalt1 (1392) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 7, 2016
pitch black brew with a nice looking dark brown head that sports great lacing and okay retention. Roasty malt and some mild coffee... enough mild maltiness to help carry the dark malts.. a bit of dark cherry essence to add to the complexities.. Dry dark bittersweet cocoa... roasty and a good dark profile midpalate shows with some decent sweetness... pretty rich.. finishes with a bit of brownie batter essence and dark fruits.. a bit of spicy hops with warmth, but the hops are definitely subdued for a Pacific stout... Medium body... not quite thick enough for the style IMO... but carbonation is about right...

Near black color with a dark dense head. Roasted malt, molasses, light pine hops and dark chocolate. Flavors match aromas with hints of raspberries. West coast style stout. Burnt malt finish. Only problem is 25% of my 4 pack was flat. 10/13
