Silva Stout took a lot of patience. We aged our Double Stout in oak bourbon barrels for seventeen months. Flavors are very complex. It starts off with dark chocolate truffles rolled in cocoa powder. Next is the vanilla and wood notes, with rich cherry-like fruitiness. After racking and filtering the ale, we blended in just the right amount of freshly brewed Double Stout to provide the perfect balance of bourbon barrel aging and freshness. Enjoy the culmination of years of flavor development now – no further aging required!

September 8th, 2012 - There was a long line for this brew at Greenflash’s event, likely owing to both the scarcity this beer suffered from back then, but also it’s heavy flavors and complex manufacture. Everybody loves a deep, profound beer, especially when it is the product of endless stages of processing and finagling. It’s a deep, dark beer, stopping sunlight like a hockey goalie intercepting a high-speed puck. An acrid coffee burn and the perfume of whiskey barrels slowly creeps from the top of the glass, intoxicating myself and nearby bystanders. Ethanol dominates the flavor (perhaps hinting that a little more aging could make this even better), but once that first fiery burn dissipates, the tongue is left with a warm, muscle relaxing blend of coconut, sticky whisky and the sensation of passing pain. The aftertaste is long, low, slow and boozy, with a sweetness that gets quieter and quieter until the next sip approaches. Before this brew I didn’t know Green Flash had an accomplished barrel aging program, but this shows off that they know what they’re doing with their barrels and racks.

Taste is dark chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, peanuts and hints of coffee, alcohol and nougat. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice BA stout, just kinda without enough character to make it into the major league.
