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.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2011
12oz bottle. Pitch black color, one-finger brown head fading to just a splotch of webbiness floating on the completely opaque surface. Some sparase lace. Really nice roasty dark bitter aroma. Not too much chocolate, not too much coffee. Just pure double-stout roastiness. Good, thick, big creamy mouthfeel. Mild and quick carbonation. Nicely done imperial stout, very satisfying.

Beer_snob (6) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 13, 2011 does not count
Bought at Trader Joes in Grossmont. Drank in a frozen glass mug. Appearance: Extremely dark with a thick pillowy head. Plenty or rings on the glass as it was consumed. Aroma-Coffee and hops, the way a stout should smell. Taste: Coffee, vanilla, and chocolate mixed with piney hops. Palate: Very pleasant. This beer tastes great and does not overwhelm your taste buds. Many people mistakenly think that dark beers are overwhelming, but that is simple not true. Ive had IPAs and Strong Ales that are stronger than this. Overall: A great showing from Green Flash. I will definitely pick some more of this up.

4-pack from Trader Joes ($7!). Pours black with a thick and frothy dark tan head that laces its way down the sides of the glass. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, light bitter coffee, and oats through the finish - slightly thin aroma. Even, semi-creamy feel in the mouth with a heavy roasted malt.chocolate flavor up front followed by chocolate bitterness with light bitter hops that winds into a relatively dry finish. Great overall stout (more like a light imperial to me) that is of extremely high quality for the price.
