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 a tan head with a dark brown body. Smells of cocoa, toast, and some coffee. Tastes the same. Enjoyable.

Christian (13341) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 3, 2009
Black with a lasting light brown head. Aroma of prunes and figs, chocolate and a little grassy hop. Strong licorice flavour with drying, roasty notes and a coffee bitter finish

From a bottle poured black with a good amount of brown head. Nice malty flavor with a quick finish.

22oz bottle. Great beer from a brewery you dont hear much about. Pours nearly black with a nice sized chocolate colored long lasting head. Nice lacing and leaves great oil legs in the glass, something I look for in a good impy. Flavor is roasty but not overly so balanced with lots of chocolate and coffee. No real hops to speak of, but its my kind of imperial stout, big rich and full with a luxurious mouthfeel. This is underated.

Pours an opaque very dark brown with an average-sized tan head. Roast malts, coffee and cocoa powder in the aroma. The complex flavors follow the aroma with a nice balance of sweet and hop bitterness. Creamy and smooth.

I love hoppy stouts. Its like the best combo of an IPA and an imperial stout. Chocolate, marshmellow, orange, perfume, flowers, carmel, toasted malt, and toffee. Yum

Bottle : The aroma consists of chocolate, caramel, and faint roasted coffee. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a small beige head that quickly fades to a film. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate and light caramel. The finish has some mild roasted coffee. Full bodied will somewhat lively carbonation for a stout. Overall a little too malt heavy for my tastes, but still solid.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a med/lg beige head with decent lacing. The aroma is roasted malts, milk and dark chocolate, and cocoa. The flavor is roasted malt, dark chocolate, light coffee with cream, and a touch of dark fruit. The mouthfeel is med-full and is smooth, almost slippery going down. I am a fan of their hoppy beers and this did not disappoint.

Pour was dark black color and had a great head. Aroma was very roasted but not a good smell, chocolate. Flavor was much the same with a good malt flavor but something was off in there.

Darker brown color with a hefty aroma of roast, chocolate, and coffee. Flavor has the roast and complexity of an impy stout but is smoother and more drinkable than most. Nice feel. Best non-impy "standard" stout since Kalamazoo.
