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.

ADfan (870) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Pours almost black in the glass with a beige head. Aroma has coffee with some chocolate, there is also some sugar.Taste is very smooth with an espresso quality and some cocoa powder. Mild bitter finish that gives the beer great balance.

Very nice stout, big and rich and roasty, hitting all the indulgent impy stout notes without growing cloy or overbearing. Malts offer up milk chocolate, coffee, and hints of molasses and anise, while the hops dry out the back end, adding a needed dark-roast bitterness backed up by pine and unsweetened cocoa powder. Finishes with a touch of boozy warmth, while the fade refuses to lean sweet. Pretty black-brown pour with a modest beige head and some lacing. Glorious mocha nose. Texture's good but the slightest bit abrasive. Delicious.

12oz bottle @ home. Very dark brown with reddish edges. Nose is dark roast coffee and bourbon barrels. Flavors are burnt roast malt, coffee, dark chocolate, toffee, chicory. Full bodied. The long finish is first roasty, then bitter espresso, then bitter chocolate. Appropriate alcohol. Really nice.

Drank 18-3-2017 while reading in Raymond Feist’s ’Servant of the Empire’. Nice beer. Little bit like a black IPA.. Chocolate taste, some hoppyness. Bitter finish. Body is nice. Good.
