3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Caramelized raisins, aniseed angles and delicate dark chocolate merge in this cake-like Imperial Stout.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam sticks to the top of the blackness.
-Carbonation is smooth enough to let all the malts shine.
-This is a sweet rendition, but it never gets sickly.
-Malts also offer roasted bread crumb allusions.
-Alcohol is not a major factor in the flavor profile.

My final beer with dinner. My palate in shock from the previous Le Freak. Dark as midnight, excellent head and lacing. Medium mouthfeel but so much coffee. High ABV@8.8%, this is to Guinness as a Grizzly Bear is to Bambi. Not a lawn mower style. I only wish I ordered a chocolate dessert.

Green Flash Double STOUT, has the aroma, taste and feel that an excellent stout should have. This is no Guinness! I went and toured the beautiful Dublin Guinness Storehouse this summer and drank their watered down, beer for the ignorant tasteless McDonald myopic masses. Yuck! Green Flash Double STOUT is the absolute opposite! If you want a big beer 9%, with great aroma, huge taste, smooth feel and clear complexity ... then look no further. I would rather buy one Green Flash Double STOUT than a 12 Guinness draft in the Dublin Guinness Storehouse. By the way, I travel a lot and NO WHERE in world, Prague, Berlin, Brussels, etc. can compete with US Craft Brews! We are changing the world from bland Light and Dark Lagers to incredible tasting ales, all because of the advancement of brewing technologies, and clean yeast strains. For those in the know regarding craft brews the US is famous, and I am not very patriotic or hold to our US foreign policies.
Bottom line: You have not tasted a good stout until you have tasted Green Flash Double STOUT!
Can’t wait to drink it after a day of skiing.

Draft. Pours black with thick creme colored head that lingers. Sweet chocolate coffee aroma over mild carbonation. Thick and chewy. Chocolatey but a bit metalic?
