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.

Almost black with brown creamy head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, peated whiskey. Taste is also vanilla and chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and hints of whiskey. Smooth, creamy texture. Awesome beer!!! Too bad I only got to taste it. Next time I’d like a whole bottle of this!

This is quite good. Dark and a bit roasty but thankfully no coffee. Very smooth and a bit chocolaty. Really quite nice, esp. after a long successful hunt.

Bottle. Moderate to heavy malt aromas of dark bread, toasted cereal, and chocolate milk, faint resin and earth for the hops and yeast, with a hint of toffee in the background. Head is average size, creamy and foamy, light brown with good yet slipery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is almost completely black. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palateis medium to full, creamy with a soft carbonation and a lightly alcoholic finish. The aroma of theis beer is amazing, bold with rounded edges is the best way I can describe it. Everything else in this brew rates right up there with the best Stouts.

Grains, mild roasted malts and a hint of nuttiness in aroma. The flavor complex fruit, grains/malts and a coffee-like bitter finish. No off-flavors, this stood on its own as far ales go.

Pours from the bottle opaque black with hints of red and a dark tan creamy head. Good lacing. Aromas of coffee and chocolate. Flavor is mildly bitter with sweetness, chocolate, dark fruits, caramel. Very rich. Perfect mouthfeel, dense but not thick. Delicious. Bitter finish.

rajendra82 (976) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Very imposing pour, as the solid black body was topped with a two finger thick, khaki colored, head. The look was pitch perfect for the style. The smell strongly of coffee, chocolate, and toffee, and faintly of almonds. The taste was very evocative of coffee and chocolate as well, followed by a boatload of hops, then roasted grain astringency, and finally a brown sugar sweetness. The mouthfeel was creamy and thick. This was a heck of a beer.

Green Flash does it again. This has all the flavor and aroma you would expect from a stout. The malts are well balanced and the oats provide the perfect smoothness. Abv is undetectable. Wish this was a little roastier and alittle thicker. Awesome stout though.
