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.

Bomber from Binnys Buffalo Grove. Pours near black with nice tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate, and a bit of a hop note. Flavors of burnt malts, bitter hops, and dark chocolate. Finishes bitter and dry. Nice stout.

peteinSD (1469) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 12, 2011
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.

mansquito (6061) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Whole Foods, P st, DC 4-pack ($11): Pours a black color with a brownish head. Aroma is of coffee, vanilla, roasted malt, and some tree. Taste starts out smooth, but then hits into some bitterness, which sustains throughout and into the aftertaste. Considering the high alcohol content, it drinks pretty smooth, but as it warms up there are certainly notes of some booze up in there. Overall, this is robust, but palatable. Strong, but in a sense subdued. Having had the Green Flash hops bombs, I thought this would be way more intense, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a more measured and subdued beer (ignore the 8.8).

650mL bottle poured a dark brown color with robust beige head that left some nice lacing behind. Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is malty sweet with chocolate notes and mild hoppy bitterness to finish things off. This is a great tasting beer that can be enjoyed anytime and anywhere.

Great stout. Nice roasty, coffee flavors. Nice malty sweetness, and a gorgeous syrupy sweet aftertaste on your lips/tongue.

bottle... dark brown with a medium tan head, not much retention but thick with spotty lace... the nose is a bit light but solid, raisins, chocolate a bit of smoke... tastes great, super impressive non ba stout, tons of flavor and super balanced

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours extremely dark brown, almost completely black, with a lasting dense tan head. Aroma is rather restrained but appealing with hints of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, smoke and dark fruit. Flavour is bolder and roastier with notes of oak, tar, dark chocolate, smoke and vanilla. Thick, creamy mouthfeel with prickly carbonation and a long roasty finish. Well crafted, complex and very easy to drink, this stout isnt as rich and sweet as a lot of Imperials but it still has plenty going on .

this the best looking beer that Ive ever seen. I held it up to the light and could not see through it at all. While it only smelled like a single stout, which concerned me, the taste clearly was that of two stoust. this beer is great!
