Black pour with brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, little sweet, coffee. Taste is roasted malt, creamy. Nice lacing. Little bitter. Very tasty! JAG55 (77) - O’Fallon, Missouri, USA - AUG 21, 2011
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. johndoughty (5449) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2011

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. rtbrmn88 (12) - Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2011
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.
