2013 bottle poured into a snifterat cellar temp. Subtle honey notes over a nice roasty backdrop. Creamy with the perfect body for a non-BA stout.

This beer wasn't that great overall. A bit thin for the style and a pungent smell of alcohol. As it warmed, the alcohol mellowed and the malt flavors became more pronounced. However, you can do much better in this style category.

Look. Dark, dark mahogany, with a medium brown, medium sized head, my favorite look.
Smell. Charred wood with bit of french roast coffee.
Taste. Fairly balanced, starts with a malty richness with a bit of sweetness then finishes with a somewhat more pronounced hoppy bitterness. Pretty good.
Mouth feel. Nice heavy body, chewy, spongey, oily then a dry, upper back palette-smacking finish.
Overall. My favorite is still a sweeter, maltier beer, but this is very good for a more balanced stout.

Perfect example of a well balanced stout, Green Flash has won my heart all over again with this baby, I will definitely be revisiting this one soon.
