12 oz bottle poured into tulip glass.

A - Pours a dark brown, almost black, with two and a half fingers of creamy chocolate/mocha head.

S - Roasted coffee, sweet chocolate, and roasted malt

T - The roastiness is very apparent in this. Good bit of roasted coffee and bitterness that is offset by the sweet chocolate. Nothing is overpowering, but very well balanced

M - Moderate-to-thick body with low-to-moderate carbonation. I would have liked a thicker, heavier mouthfeel, but it was still good.

O - A very solid stout. The roasted coffee and sweet chocolate complement each other great, and although there is nothing unique or outstanding about this beer, every aspect is well executed and balanced.

Double Stout Black Ale from Green Flash Brewery in San Diego, CA. Nice 8.8% ABV. Pour dark black with a foamy thick brown head. A very smooth mouth feel with a roasted malt/chocolate start and a mildly bitter coffee finish. I very balance Imperial Stout that hides the 8.8% ABV well. Well worth a try if you enjoy stouts or porters.

A - Pours a midnight black with a two-finger tan foamy head. Good amount of lacing.

S - Dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee.

T - Like the smell. Dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and some light smokiness. Finish is bittersweet.

M - Full bodied with low carbonation. Thick creamy mouthfeel. Dry finish.

O - This is a good Imperial Stout. Awesome flavor and mouthfeel. Highly recommended.
