Poured from a growler picked up at the tasting room. Clean aroma with almost a rose petal accent. Raisin and toffee notes follow. Pours Amber with a cream coloured foam that persists. Lacing lingers as you would expect. Clean malt taste with effervescent carbonic bitterness. Aftertaste lingers with a clean bite. For a 9.1 ABV ale, very refreshing ryanknock (150) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 14, 2009
Decadent and rich for a beer on tap, and considering it is a new beer to 2008, pretty amazing at the balance. Cloves, chocolate, smoke and charred wood flavors complement the slightly ester yeast character, with a strong dark fruit, raisin and fig character. Rich, thick, dark and warm. Best beer of 2008?

Nice brew. Pours like liquid chocolate with a fuming head that lasts. Strong banana bread and spicy gum aromas. Full nectar and luscious to the feel. Carbonation helps here as it’s perfect for that creamy texture. A viscous malt body ensues carrying a loaf of banana bread gently baked with exotic spices. The finish is long and memorable. Excellent beer! TarcisioVasco (131) - Ribeirão Preto (SP)., BRAZIL - JUN 5, 2013
Excepcional Belgian Strong Ale, americana bem parecida com as melhores belgas, sabores complexos, alcool perceptível sem excesso, notas de caramelo e toffee, além de um tostado muito bem feito, sem amargor. gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Bottle, courtesy someone. Clear black reddish pour, filmy white head and thick lacing. Nose of dark Belgian fruit, some toasty bready notes, pear, chocolate and distant roast. Rich dark fruit flavors, with chocolate, coffee, caramel and molasses, with some licorice, brown sugar and a very nice overall complexity. Smooth body, very balanced and very delicious. Surprised by this one, it’s really good.

Green Flash Grand Cru has a thick, foamy, beige head, and a dark purple-brown appearance, with some brilliant red highlights showing up when light catches the beer at the right point. Very thick lacing rings are left on the glass. The aroma is of bold, lively fruitiness, black bread, bread crust, and dates. Taste is similar, with cinnamon, raisins, yeast, some banana, coriander, a bit of hoppiness, and licorice. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Green Flash Grand Cru finishes mostly dry, rich, and rather drinkable. Overall, this is just fantastic, and I recommend it in the strongest possible way!

Dark brown with a thin lacing of tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, some slight banana and clove. Flavor is big sweet malt with a nice bitterness to balance it out. Finish is very clean, with a tiny amount of hops. Not overly sweet at all like some big grand crus. Excellent beer.
