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.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Bottle, poured black into the glass with a nice tan head. Smell was chocolate covered malted milk balls. Yum. Taste was well rounded, rich and tasty. Big chocolate, oatmeal, molasses and a great smooth finish. Enough balancing hop to keep it drinkable. Good stuff.

Dark brown to black body with a thick brown head. Good retention. Roasted malt aroma, licorice, chocolate, some chocolate and alcohol. Sweet taste. Full body, thick texture.

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Poured from a bottle into a glass. Black pour with a mocha brown head that is thick with lacing. Aroma dominated by dark roast malt and chocolate. Taste is a great balance of dark malts, mild coffee and dark chocolate with a bitter finish. Smooth mouth feel with mild carbonation. Thick body. Great.

Tsekouratos (604) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - JUN 23, 2014
355 ml bottle at The Local Pub, Athens Greece. Pitch black color with a thin brown head. Aromas of chocolate, some roasted coffee and maybe some alcohol. Taste is really sweet, with chocolate, coffee, resins, maybe some plums, some liquorice. Sweet aftertaste, long and sticky. Full body with low carbonation.

Fashawn (604) - ITALY - OCT 2, 2014
Più simile ad una choccolate stout piuttosto che ad una imperiale stout. Nera, simile alla coca cola, con una bella testa color cappuccino. Odore di caramello e orzo, choccolata e caffè. In bocca, torrefatto dato dall’orzo, piccolo ritorno di liquirizia misto a caffè, e finale al cioccolato. Buona birra.

Poured pitch black with an aroma of chocolate. Taste was mostly chocolate. Mouth feel was silky smooth. Alcohol was well hidden. Very enjoyable.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 6, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2008 On tap at Taproom. Full bodied, rich, bursting with rich dark chocolate, and a dry, bitter, long coffee finish. I really liked this one. Very well done indeed.

thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Foamy tan head with black thick body. Smells of chocolate and cereal and dark carmel riesen candy. Very rich with espresso and chocolate bitters. Caramel and roasted malt. Very nice.

3.9
SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2008
This poured black in color with a thick light brown head that faded away. The nose was filled with aromas of bittersweet chocolate, coffee and some fig/prune scents. In the mouth it was medium to full-bodied, rich and smooth. The flavors followed the nose with a well-balanced midpalate that finished smooth yet slightly bitter. Overall it was quite nice albeit a bit simple.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2009
On tap at Stone World Gardens 07-10-09. Pours a dark brown with a nice lingering head. Solid caramel and chocolate aroma. Flavor is relatively plain and not as complex as expected. There is nothing wrong with this beer, but it simply doesn’t have a lot going on. Very clean finish and great mouthfeel, if not a bit too lively on the tongue. This is a well-made beer, but there is nothing remarkable about it. I’d definitely like to try again, though.
