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.

Very, very dark brown. Thick and creamy from oats. Plenty of chocolate and toast, molasses, prunes. Some yeast on the nose and a recessed hops in the aroma and taste. Very interesting profile, well balanced and delicious.

Alcohol definitely noticeable- like a alcohol swab, actually. Alcohol odor shines through, too. On the other hand, this black ale does still have a rather pleasant dark chocolate/coffee taste and decently smooth body. Nothing to write home about though.

Pitch black and a nice creamy tan head with staying power. Roast coffee aroma. A bitter stout focused on the dark roast flavors, maybe a touch of cocoa. Dry. Limited in my opinion but you will like it if coffee is your thing.

Gluepot (533) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
A brownish black hue with a fine tan head. The nose is very soft, featuring roasted coffee. The taste is balanced and relatively understated for an Imperial Stout. Roasted Coffee leads with some chocolate sweetness and lactic smoothness. A clean finish with a hint of bitterness. A tasty medium viscosity Imperial that is well crafted but is more understated than anticipated.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to a completely black color with a thick tan head. The aroma has roasted malts, slight chocolate, cocoa. The taste has a medium body with a nice slightly sweet taste upfront followed by a mild bitter finish. The finish is pretty dry & overall a good balance.
