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.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 22oz from Sam’s, Durham. A big and very thick pour, obviously so from the opaque quality of the body and the lasting creamy head. A nice roasty aroma greets you, with some chocolate smoothness detectable. Taste is heavy on the espresso characteristics, with a bit of a lactic quality emerging in the finish, along with smooth milk chocolate. A very nice stout from this fine brewery.

A dark brown beer with a nice 3 finger head. The aroma was roasty, chocolate. The taste was roasty, chocolate, coffee, bitter-which is what I expect from a stout. Nice mouthfeel & enjoyable.

0.65 l bottle at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Black color with thick creamy head. Roasty aroma with chocolate and licorice. Sweet and roasty flavor with chocolate and salty licorice. Hint of sharp alcohol. Tasty stout, although I don’t find this as complex as complex a 8.8 ABV stout could be.
