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.

Aroma of dark chocolate, milk, and alcohol. Terrific creamy brown head. Thick syrupy feel on the mouth. Nicely effervescent carbonation. Hot chocolate flavor and texture in the first sips. Middle is of banana. Finishes w/ roasty flavors of chocolate, hops, and alcohol. A big well put together stout

Bottle @ beer temple. Pour black, with a brownish hue, and a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts. Taste is pretty sweet up front, with a bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied, with rather flat carb.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - MAR 18, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2009 Bottle. Pours a pitch black brew with cream-like texture - awesome! Lovely thick and dense brown longlasting head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, espresso and fruity yeast. Flavour is bitter and roasted with sweet chocolicious malts. Nice balance. Notes of licorice aswell. Smooth and creamy texture. I really enjoyed this one..

bigtaster (931) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2013
From a bottle, huge brown head that lasts, black body. Chocolate on the nose, roasted barley, something else I cant nail down. Full body, some initial toffee, bitter from start to end, lingers for a very long time. Slightly astringent, sweetness is mostly at the beginning with toffee, molasses, and chocolate. Great bodied dry Stout.

JoePeesie (925) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Pours a thin black with a finger of brown head that clings nicely to the glass. Nose and taste are of dark chocolate, a trace of coffee perhaps, roasted malts, and mellow hops. This is a nicely balanced easy drinking beer. Quite enjoyable at 8.8%. I love big stouts but on a cool fall evening, kicking back with the wife and kid this beer is big enough to warm small enough to drink alone. Overall I would have to say this beer fit my mood and tastes tonight perfectly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle served in a stem glass. Very dark brown, nearly black, with a 1/2" of beige head. Strong smell of dark chocolate with some dark fruit and bread character as well. Taste was similar. Not picking up any roasted characteristics typical of a stout. Man this is one chocolatey beer. I was surprised that there was no hop character with this beer being from Green Flash and all. It reminded me a lot of a much dryer version of a doppelbock.

Awesome beer. Been wanting to try this one for a while and it was worth the wait. Pours black with fluffy tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate dominate throughout. So silky smooth on the tongue with a chocolate sweetness, that is very deceiving. Cant wait to enjoy another one of these some day!
