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.

TheGB (578) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Pours black with a dense 1/4" head. Aroma of malt, coffee, chocolate and a little anise. Full bodied with a delicious stout taste, that is big, but I think balances everything nicely.

LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Cold 22oz bottle: Pours an opaque, dark brown color with a small, persistent tan head that leaves some lacing behind. Aroma is of roasted malts with some cherries and grass. Taste is of roasted malts blended with chocolate and grassy hops. Full bodied and smooth, with good carbonation. Ending is of bitter coffee with some caramel and alcohol notes.

pilgrimoutlaw (888) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle pours pitch black with foamy tan head. Extremely creamy, smooth, thick body. Aromas of roast, chocolate, earth. Moderate bitterness is offset by sweetness. Like drinking a milk-shake. Very nice.

onceblind (8177) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Pitch black with a thin tan head that leaves a nice cap with good lacing. Aroma of roasty earthy chocolate, a touch of molasses, and grainy roasted black malt. Nice full flavor with a great linger, not astringent, leaves pleasant off-dry texture that makes you want more. Roasty flavor full of dark malts, some bakers chocolate, though not as sweet...a touch of black licorice and a hint of molasses, finishing on grainy dark black malts tone. Has a little too much of that black malt taste, not enough chocolate tones or sweetness for my liking. That said, this is an incredibly made stout with huge body and great complexity.

Rasmus40 (18358) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2011
Black with a brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, burnt and a little alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and roasted rather bitter finish. Oily and smooth. 081111

Koelschtrinker (18349) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 8, 2011
Cremig malziger Antrunk. Nussige und feine Rstaromen sind bereits von Beginn an vorhanden. Das Aroma bleibt durchweg intensiv, der Geschmack vollmundig. Dabei variiert die Se etwas, die Rstigkeit geht zugunsten einer aromatischen Bitterschokoladennoten zurck. Geringe Bananigkeit. Super! 7/12/12/11/10/12

BazookaJoe (274) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 7, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2013 In bottle, aged a little over a year. Pours black with thin tan head. Very roasty with a creamy finish. Also, well hopped for a big stout. Very good beer.

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2011
A big and very thick pour, obviously so from the opaque quality of the body and the lasting creamy head. A nice roasty aroma greets you, with some chocolate smoothness detectable. Taste is heavy on the espresso characteristics, with a bit of a lactic quality emerging in the finish, along with smooth milk chocolate, and a subtle sweet berry character. A very nice stout from this fine brewery.

kra303 (8) - Carbondale, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2011 does not count
Pours like black gold; creamy tawny head, with long lacing; intense nose of chocolate malt, roasted, toasted stout character; silky, mouthfilling, yet balanced with just the right carbonation/acidity; wow, pour me another!
