On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

Pours a fairly dark black, with a small half inch head, and no lacing.

Smells very strongly of pepper, spicy and zesty, with some typical, but buried stout aromas of chocolate and roasted malt.

The pepper doesn't take over in the flavor as strongly as in the aroma, but it's there. Zesty, spicy, and slightly vegetal flavors sit on top of roasted malt, a bit of smoke, and chocolate. The pepper flavor is not too spicy, it complements the strong stout flavor well.

This one sports a body of medium thickness, with a lower amount of carbonation, and a spicy and creamy mouthfeel.

A nice little twist on the regular Green Flash Double Stout, but I think I like the original better.

On tap at the bier stein the other day.

While I thought this a tasty effort from GF, the heat from the chilies was just a bit over the tope for me (and I generally like hot/spicy food). The base beer was excellent, as expected, but the chili flavor dominated to the point it was difficult to appreciate or enjoy it. Just not sure I need to revisit this one again any time soon.
