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.

Alengrin (4812) - BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2015
From an older bottle, still with the old label. Lightly lacing, yellowish beige, surprisingly stable, moussy head, colour a hazy, very dark burgundy with a black soul. Wonderful, lush American stout aroma of chocolate mousse, marzipan, coffee liqueur, dried banana, mocha ice cream, sweet candied cherry, whisky, hazelnut oil, kahlua, pepper. Strong, refined candied sweetness in the mouth, Belgian chocolate-like, touch of natural and undisturbing iron as in many a good stout, soft carbo, candied dates and pear brandy hints, thick layer of caramelly and chocolatey, smooth, oily, fatty maltiness, nicely balanced, refined roasted coffee bitterness in the end with spicy hops and a glow of warming, liqueurish and brandyish alcohol to finish it off. A must try if you are a stout afficionado like me.

mrjaxson (514) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2015
A lighter weight stout, sweet in the middle but with a healthy dose of hops to even out the typical roasted heaviness . Different and very good. Poured from a bottle.

zoucrew102 (1551) - - SEP 10, 2015
Bottle. Rich roasted malt aroma with chocolate and coffee notes. Pours inky black with a decent mocha brown head with excellent retention and lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt flavors with the rolled oats providing a silky smooth mouthfeel and rich body. Finishes smooth with nice chocolaty flavors with just a hint of roast coffee. Nice stout.
