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.

nbutler11 (1267) - Wiesbaden, Hesse, - FEB 4, 2009
Bottle from the brewery. Pours black with a tint of ruby and a hefty dark brown head. Smells of hazelnuts and roasted coffee. Tastes of both with additional notes of vanilla, cherry, plum, and semi-sweet cocoa. Well-balanced and robust.

AgentAle (916) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2015
Aroma is rich dark malts, caramel, rye, espresso, coffee and light earthiness. Taste is an almost chewy mouthfeel and balanced very well with a nice earthy and clove bitterness. Appearance is a dark brown with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

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.

JFGrind (1881) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Straightforward full bodied Imperial Stout with malts the focus. No over the top bitterness, bourbon, or quirky ’West Coast’ additions. Old World indeed.

legion242 (2306) - Richardson, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Poured a deep black with a very nice, lacy head. A bit thin in the mouth but the alcohol well hidden.

minutemat (1986) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2015
330ml bottle from Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours deep black with thin foamy tan head. Aroma is medicinal molasses. Taste is much of the same with additional liquorice and, as such, is not really my kinda stout. Smooth mouthfeel and does grow on me after a while, but essentially not my cup of tea.

mtdewa1 (431) - rome, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Black oily pour. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, vanilla, caramel and roasted malts. Taste is chocolate, caramel and malts. Velvety and smooth. Well built stout. Very enjoyable. Not overwhelming with alcohol which made it easy to drink.

monk191 (1201) - California, USA - FEB 28, 2015
A nice stout overall. Pours a deep black with a tan head. Smells of coffee, vanilla, and toffee. Taste is very thick with lots of butter coffee, some vanilla and a smoky finish. Had in the bottle.
