12 oz bottle bottled on 12/18/12

A: Black with brown head. Very good lacing that sticks to the glass.

S:Mainly semisweet chocolate and roasted malt. Some coffee, toast, and vanilla in the background. A bit bigger would be better.

T: Taste follows the nose very closely; mainly semisweet chocolate and roasted malt. Roast approaches a bit of bitterness towards the end similar to coffee with a small hop note. Very solid, but could be a bit bigger.

M: Thick, smooth, low carbonation. Wet.

O: Straightforward imperial stout with good taste and aroma. Bigger would be better, but considering the price this is very good buy.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours out black with two fingers of fluffy caramel colored head. Very good retention with thick lacing.

S: Smells like dark chocolate, coffee, booze, with a big roasted malt backbone.

T: Dark chocolate, roasted malts, with a hint of bitterness.

M: Heavy body with medium low carbonation. Texture and look is somewhat motor-oily.

O: A very good offering. I wouldn't expect much less from Green Flash. This beer is put together very well and it fires on all cylinders for a great sensory experience.

3.21/5  rDev -21.7%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours black with deep browns in the light. Head is light tan. Drops to a spotty head with a chunky loose collar. Faint spots of lacing. Pours a bit thinner than expected. Moderate carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Lots of roasted malt character. Deeply roasted with some cocoa and a solid hit of bitter baker's chocolate. Some tiny hints of old coffee beans. Some grainy notes. Touches of citrus in the back. Not a lot of depth.

Taste: Oh hey, it's super roasted. Touches of smoke and char. Bitter chocolate and baker's chocolate. Loaded with bitter roasted malts. Some old, very old stake coffee. Touches of leather and dark plum. Some caramel malt in the back. A touch of pithy citrus with some pine needle thrown in for good measure. Intense levels of roast.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation on a medium body. Thinner than I expect from the style. A bit dry and bubbly.

Overall: Double your fun? I think not!

Not a bad stout, but I feel like they missed the mark a bit. Has the crazy roast profile associated with the style, but everything else felt a little light by comparison. A bigger body and smoother Mouthfeel would really push this over barely above average.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Black with a dark khaki head…if poured right, there is substantial head…tons of tiny bubbles up there…looks good! (4.5/5)

Smell: Coffee and chocolate dominant…roasted malts mixed in there as well…a very pleasant smelling beer…(4/5)

Taste: Deep Chocolate, coffee, roasted malts…there’s a dark fruit sweetness about this as well…flavor from beginning to end…balanced all around…(4/5)

Mouthfeel: Nice and fluffy carbonation forming a creamy chocolate bit of deliciousness…smooth and flavorful, there is a bit of a coffee aftertaste…(4/5)

Overall: I really enjoy this beer…the flavor is impeccable…chocolate, coffee, creamy, sweet, roasted malt…it’s strong but not alcoholly…tons of flavor…it’s the perfect “just got home from work, I want a beer” beer…highly recommended…(4/5)

7 month old bottle.
Pours lovely with a thick creamy light brown head and a dark body.
The smell has a lot of oat component to it with chocolate, and roasted malt.
Some hop /roasted malt bitterness up front. It has sweetness to it but is roastier than the smell would indicate with much more coffee. Chocolate and some oat. A light dark fruit flavor is in there as well.
Smooth and creamy big bodied but not all the way full. Some dryness.
Fairly straightforward and good imperial stout. Not super exciting though.
