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.

Pours thick black like used oil with nice thick chocolaty head and long lasting laces. Flavor is bitter chocolate and coffee enhanced with roasted grains and herbs. A full body with creamy, oily feel, soft carbonation to almost lively, and nice long dry clean and balanced finish.

I poured a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Unlike many big stouts, where the abv (and/or a bit of age) overwhelms the yeast and leads to a still-ish pour, this raised an enthusiastic 2-inch khaki head with hints of otherworldly red. The body sat inky black but lively, and laced the glass abundantly as it went down. Aromas of roast coffee and fennel suggested a tasty but generic big stout, but the flavor profile proved a bit more subtle, with waves of chocolate and hand-drawn espresso smoothing out the harsher edges that these beers sometimes maintain. The palate is smooth and pillowy, suggesting the texture of cotton candy. Overall, this is a fantastically light yet powerfully flavorful treat, and yet another feather in the crowded cap of the folks at Green Flash.

Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is lots of chocolate, roasty malt, and brown sugar. Flavor is much the same with the addition of coffee, and a good bit of hoppy bitterness.

A: pours black, dark brown around the edges when held to a light. Head was two fingers just after pour, after a while it was a thin dark brown. S: dark and roasty, a nice chocolaty sweetness almost reminds me of a milk stout in the aroma. It smells creamy. T: dark roasted malt, a creamy mix of the malt, chocolate, a little nutty, oat smoothness/sweetness. There is a nice slightly piny aftertaste. M: creamy, smooth carbonation O: no complaints, is a great stout, wish it came in sixers and not four packs.

Purchased at Hyde Park Wine & Spirits in Cincinnati, OH; enjoyed on a pleasant Friday night while my lady is out at a bachelorette party. Appearance is a thick pitch black with a very frothy dark tan head, laces to the glass, looks purdy. Aroma heavy on the chocolate and roasted malts, hint of bitterness from a coffee / hop mixture, maybe a small bit of licorice aroma in there as well, it smells good. Taste also very good, very smooth and creamy, not overtly sweet, coffee comes out a bit more in the back end mixed with the roast & chocolate, Im not getting the fruity esters as the marketing description says, but it is a very good brew. Very solid.

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep black with dark brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, peat, raisin and a hint of brown sugar. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, earth. A slight spice is detectable in the finish. A very good stout!

RickTStiles (826) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2011
pours black with a thin beige head and plenty of lacing. Very warm, roasted coffee aroma. body is lacking for an imperial stout. Taste is coffee and chocolate with come cherry notes. finish is bitter chocolate and hops. decent but admittedly pedestrian Imperial Stout.
