Dark bomber. Good chocolate and secondary roast and coffee in aroma. Pours black with above average carbonation and above average mouthfeel. Roasted flavour builds up over repeated glasses. Flavour is not too chocolate. A bomber is a lot to drink.Balanced.

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

Pours an opaque black with a 2 inch thick dark khaki head that settles to a small cap. Randsom swaths of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, bread/biscuit, and slight chocolate aromas. Taste is of dark roasted malt, bitter cocoa beans, and some hop flavors on the finish. There is a slight roasty/hop bitterness that lingers on the palate after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good stout that has more roasty aromas and flavors than any sort of coffee/chocolate found in other stouts.

4.35/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Black forest cake with bronzed edges that are barely seen, even with bright backlighting. Stouts don't get much darker than this. The upper third of the glass is filled with a firmly creamy chunk of coffee-with-cream colored foam that looks to be milkshake thick. An extensive, circumferential sheet of moth-eaten lace puts the finising touches on this humdinger of a double stout.

The aroma, although not quite as impressive as the appearance, is more than solid as well. Roasted malt delivers the usual aromas of chocolate and coffee; more the former than the latter. An American hop might have worked better than U.K. Target, but that probably borders on nitpicking.

Green Flash Double Stout is a well-brewed big beer that is full of positives and is devoid of negatives. There's no real flash and sizzle, just straightforwardly delicious, roasted malty, immensely drinkable stout. I'm glad the ABV is only 8.8%. Pushing it over 10.0% wouldn't have accomplished anything worthwhile.

Warming does what warming usually does. That is, it reveals the beer's true colors. In this case, it turns a good double stout it a borderline great double stout. An insane amount of complexity (see The Abyss) might be lacking, but there's something to be said for simple done right.

Flavors include bittersweet chocolate, dark brown sugar, coffee beans, vanilla and an herbal-fruity hoppiness. On second thought, the grapefruitiness of an American C-hop wouldn't have worked as well. An early and mid-mouthful sweetness is overtaken on the back end by an impressive (and cumulative) hoppiness. This beautiful brew is becoming downright raspy by the second half of the bomber. Maybe that's why I like it so much.

The body/mouthfeel is built for speed... as evidenced by the fact that I'm much farther into the bomber than is usual at this point in the review. Although it's a fraction light for the style, there's a subtle chewiness on the back end that saves the day. Perfect (soft and steady) carbonation helps the cause.

Green Flash gets lost in the shuffle when the conversation turns to great California craft breweries, but that's only because there's such an abundance of excellence in the Golden State. Double Stout is yet more evidence that their lineup is rock-solid from top to bottom. Only $4.99 per bottle is icing on the cake.

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

A: The beer pours black in color with a rather impressive two fingers of tan head.

S: Intense roasted malt and coffee aromas to this. Plenty of dark chocolate aromas with a subtle earthiness. Perhaps a hint of smoke, same thing for licorice. A bit of molasses and toffee for sweetness.

T: The roasted malt flavor is quite powerful with a slight bitterness and earthy hop note. Lots of strong coffee and dark chocolate flavors, maybe a bit of licorice and burnt sugar. Subtle sweetness on the mid-palate.

M: Medium bodied with smooth, medium carbonation.

O: A very tasty beverage. Another solid beer from Green Flash.

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

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large brown color head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with light fruity overtones and some residual sugar is quite pleasant. Taste is also a solid mix between some roasted malt with some black chocolate notes and some light fruity ester. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed with solid malt backbone and not overly dry; in fact coffee-like notes are quite subtle.

Double Stout is a delicious and no-frills kinda Stout. One sip delivers all the moderate and balanced flavors with a high level of drinkability.

Pouring an onyx-black color and with seemingly bright clarity despite its darkness, this handsome ale develops a thick and moussey light tan head that retains until the final sips and laces with rings around the glass that denotes each sip (surprisingly fewer rings than I would have thought).

Milder than expected aromas of true roast and malt gives elements of coffee, cocoa, heavy toast, and cream. Low lying caramel notes, no fruity esters, and no apparent spices leave the nose simple, pure, and all about the malt and roast.

Very clean flavors carry the dialogue of coffee and malt with deeper notes of French roast varieties, malted milk, bittersweet cocoa, and a touch of vanilla. Slight smoky sweetness of caramel and phenol give a bit of intrigue and becons a pairing with barbecue. No real fruitiness or caramel sweetness of English Stouts make this beer a very yeast-neutral, clean, and malty-dry flavored beer.

Full bodied with creamy malt textures, but without the heaviness or weight that's associated with sweeter versions. Rich from start to finish with somewhat marshmallowy texture- the creamy maltiness makes an impression throughout. A dry roasty finish closes the beer with a long linger of coffee and cocoa bitterness.

In an odd way, this beer makes brewing seem too easy. Immaculately balanced, simple profile, and exquisite execution makes the beer seem perfect as is but still making me want more.

On tap at Rustico. Served in a snifter.

Pours a near-black color with a thin mocha head that sticks around for quite a bit and leaves some spotty lacing. Thin collar sits throughout. The nose brings a good dosing of chocolate along with some mild roast and coffee. Touch of vanilla in there as well. Some sweetness opens the taste up, followed by a mellow chocolate character and a bit of coffee and roast in the finish, creating a bit of a roasty bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy with low levels of carbonation. Finish is a bit too roasty and dry for my taste. Drinks pretty well and this is certainly something I'd order again.

A: The beer is jet black in color and poured with a finger high tan head that slowly faded away. A moderate amount of carbonation is visible.
S: The smell has aromas of dark roasted malts and notes of chocolate and coffee.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and has a moderate amount of bitterness from the hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied, creamy, oily, smooth and somewhat thick on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. The finish is rather dry.
D: The alcohol is well hidden, making this beer not too difficult drink, although the amount of bitterness and dryness requires that it be sipped.

11 ounce pour - $5.75 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Black, inky body with a frothy, long-lived, dirtied beige head. It's an appearance we desire, nay, demand from our stouts.

Smell: Roasty malted barley with a little tinge of burnt grain to it. Chocolate shavings come forward ahead of the notes of dark fruits. Heavy toast, pinch of peppercorns.

Taste: Chocolate in a fling with roasted maltiness. Light touch of dark fruits (black cherry, raisin). Then, some lightly peppery, lowly citrusy, earthy hops with enough bitterness to shore up the initial roastiness. Rebounded pop of sugar sweetness midway, then, more of the choco-roast until the semi-dry, pillowy soft finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Recommended. A solidly malty, quality brew.

Thanks to mnbearsfan for sharing this bottle during DLD!

I love how it just says "stout" on the label. How very to-the-point. It pours a straight onyx topped by a finger of dark tan foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, and a hint of a combination of pine and menthol in the background. The taste holds notes of roasted malts (in spades, baby), dark chocolate, light coffee, light molasses, and black pepper. The body is a heavy-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a very dry finish. Overall, a tasty stout, though a bit on the bitter and dry sides for my tastes.

12oz bottle, denoted simply as a 'black ale' on the label.

This beer pours a solid black abyss, with barely perceptible basal red cola 'highlights', and three fingers of puffy, fizzy, and bubbly light brown head, which leaves some pervasive boiling cauldron lace around the glass as it slowly and evenly sinks away.

It smells of musty medium-dark chocolate, toasted biscuity caramel malt, bittersweet coffee, middling dark fruit, a wee bit of flinty ash, and earthy, mildly leafy hops. The taste is sweet, lightly roasted caramel malt, some hard salted toffee, a touch of molasses/treacle, dark chocolate, dry, almost burnt coffee beans, black licorice, a slick oaten secondary graininess, mild, indistinct black fruit, and soft earthy, weedy hops. The alcohol is well obfuscated, at least until things start to warm up.

The carbonation is quite soft and generally innocuous, the body a stocky, and more or less full weight, with a pleasantly plump smoothness, and a barely lean creaminess. It finishes on the sweet side, the meek char and now basically AWOL hops not really up to staying the big-ass malt, fruit, coffee, and cocoa bum rush.

A pretty tasty, um, "Black Ale", one which exhibits a whole lot of sturdy and stoic imperial stout goodness, full stop. Dense (in the good way), complex, and yet strangely drinkable, at least until your desire for yet another bottle from that 4-pack proves to be your undoing for the night.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a large brown head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of roasted dark malts, dark chocolate, some alcohol and touches of coffee and hops.

T: The taste starts out very hearty roasted malt character and mildly sweet flavors of dark chocolate and black coffee. There's a slightly alcohol sting but is a bit more subdued than other big stouts nor does this beer have as much of an intense sweetness to it. The hops presence is very weak but exactly where it should be for this type of beer and is enough to provide a good balance. There's also a touch of smokiness in the finish. The after-taste is bitter-sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium-to-heavy body, medium carbonation, finish is sticky but dry.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, slightly filling, good kick, nice representation of style, this beer has a good complexity to it and it's a good alternative when you want a big stout that isn't too big. Overall it's a good beer to drink for a long time.

Thanks to Jason for this one! Review is from notes.

Black body with a creamy head of tan foam that puffs itself above the glass rim. Laces nicely and retains a ring at the edge with some broken skim across the surface. Slighty sweet yet dry chocolate aroma. Tobacco, malted milk ball, and chocolate comprise the major flavors. Dry in the aftertaste but still vaguely sweet. Full bodied, but retaining a certain lightness about it. Very clean and easy drinking, defined by an authentic stouty character...

Pours a mahogany tinged black with 1 pinky of cocoa colored head. Very good head retention & above average lacing

S: Dark chocolate, faint smokeyness, raisins & plums

T: Dark chocolate, charred malt, some leafy hops & a bit of coffee tinged booze up front. Plum, prunes, iron, mocha & bit more booze burn as this warms. Finishes with oaky dryness, baker's chocolate & leafy/minty hops

MF: Oily, near zero carbonation with medium body, a bit too much hotness

Drinks kind of slow, a bit rough edged, but if you can past that this is a Imp Stout with some complexity

The beer pours a deep, dark black color with a thick frothy brown head that lasts. The aroma is perfect. It has a smooth, rich chocolatey scent that boasts of black malts and sweet chocolate; just the way I like it. The taste is great. It is silky smooth all the way down. It's sweet up front with a stiff roasted backbone. It's laced with chocolate and coffee flavors; exceptional. The mouthfeel is perfect. It's a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a tremendous stout. I love the flavor profile and the excellent mouthfeel; another winner from this fabulous brewery!

For some reason this is my 2200 review. Beer is served in a small snifter. Beer is black with a thin tan head of small bubbles, no lacing low carbonation.

Aroma is malt and alcohol, sweetness mostly.

Beer is medium bodied and much better than I expected, overall the beer is malty and sweet with a nice finish, not too bitter, not dry, good throughout. I'd have this beer again.

2008 vintage sampled in May 2010. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is a nice mix of roasted malt, chocolate and smoke. The flavor is pretty heavy on the chocolate with some roasted malt. The mouthfeel is a little too thin for me and is a tad bit watery. Medium carbonation.

Pours a dark mocha colored creamy thick frothy creamy 1 finger head fades semi slowly with nice lacing, pitch black beer that's pretty thick with nice legs.

Nose brings lots of dark malts and earthy spicy hops, dark malts with cocoa, creamy chocolate, oats, fluffy nougat and caramel, some dark malts with a hint of roast and fresh coffee. Hops are fairly spicy but mild, little earthy too.

Taste starts creamy again, little powdered cocoa like, creamy oats with a dry powdered character. Super dry with sweet tendencies as there are lots of malt characters, black malts, little roast like with hints of coffee, then some caramel and fluffy nougat, into the cocoa, powdered cocoa and chocolate, even the dark malts bring a little bitterness. Some slight spicy hops, little chewy and fair overall bitterness, but not too hoppy. There is a hint of booze warmth, mostly hidden behind the big dark malts and spicy hops. Finish is dry and fairly bitter, long lingering bitter spicy hops and dark roasty black malts, little more powdered cocoa, and the weight of the beer still seems to sit on the tongue long after it's gone.

Mouth is big bodied, full rich and fairly thick, little creamy, with good carbonation, and just a hint of well hidden booze warmth.

Overall pretty nice, the dark malts are very nice, fluffy, creamy, but dry and tasty, decent hop profile that doesn't get too crazy bitter or spicy that I expected for a Green Flash beer called "black ale". So pretty nice.

A reasonably soft pour produces a full, three-finger thick, deeply browned, creamed-cocoa colored head. The beer is opaque and quite black, though it does show hints of rubies in its depths if you hold it directly up to the light. My first smell of the aroma yields aromatics that are not nearly as burnt / roasted as I was expecting, instead a mix of sweet, dark malt and aromas of dark chocolate are what I first notice. Subsequent draughts of the aroma yield toasty grain-husk aromas, a touch of roast charcoal, a hint of burnt acidity, some dark roast coffee aromas and perhaps a hint of burnt fruit character. The aroma, while characterful, is a bit more subdued than I would expect of a stout of this strength; it is actually in a way nice that it is not bowling me over.

Sweet, dark chocolate and malt notes up front yield to a drying, roast coffee finish. The finish lingers for quite some time with a roast grain bitterness and a touch of burnt acidity; though the bitter, burnt grain character is really what lingers on in the palate after the beer has slid down ones throat. I really like the rich, chewy malt decadence that starts out each sip, but after a bit the finish gets a little too sharp and burnt. Pretty well carbonated, but the texture of this beer is creamy enough that the carbonation is only lightly noticed. The beer is certainly chewy and thick, though it is not overly so; this is a good beer to have one pint of when you only want one.

A nice beer. It get a bit less harsh in the finish as the beer warms up. The dark, sweet malt character becomes a bit more apparent throughout the flavor profile, which is what helps to mitigate the burnt bitter notes of the finish. A tasty beer I would be happy to have again.

12 Fl Oz Bottle poured at home into a Westmalle chalice on 4th Oct 2012.

Black bodied beer, with a full, dark tanned creamy head. the head sadly soon fell away to a wisp and collar.

Burnt ground coffee and roasted malt loaf type smell, add some dark chocolate and some walnuts: that is the nose I detected.

The taste follows the aromas but with a drier, bitter feel. The hop content comes into its own in the flavours once the beer hits the back of the mouth: this adds some balance and calms down the malts a little, giving the beer a semi-kick and prevents it being too smooth or rich feeling in texture.

I liked it: another Californian I'd happily have again.

Pours black with a dark tan head that settles to a wide swirling patch. Some dots of lacing stick as the head descended down the glass.

The smell is of coffee/chocolate with charcoal/ashy smokiness, dark fruits and earthy tones.

The taste is earthy, smoky, coffeeish/ chocolatey. Subtle dark fruits mix in in the back. It has a dry, roasty finish.

Medium-to-full-bodied. Could be a bit thicker for a "double", but it works well where it is, as there is a creamy, smooth texture.

The alcohol is covered very well.

A very enjoyable stout - English-like with an American flair for bigger. As I was on my patio drinking this a neighbor passed by (while in the second half of the bottle) smoking a cedary cigar. Though I'm not a cigar smoker, the aroma enhanced it even more, so if you are a cigar smoker, you may want to enjoy the second half with a cedary cigar! Job well-done here!

A nice looking stout. Nice roasted tones on the nose. But the best thing about this beer is that it's so smooth. Nice and even and easy to drink. And the alcohol is well masked as well, which makes a big difference since this is such a high abv brew.

Big bottle American Double stout, this one has a dark pitch black body with a deep moccha tan head, forms thick with rising chunky textured foam. Aroma has dark black chocolate notes, with creamy infused coffee notes. Flavor has dark nearly burnt coffee roast flavors, dark bitter chocolate. Herbal earthy hop finish, creamy textures round out the dark malt flavors but it does of a bit of an acrid tartness through the middle kind of like sourdough bread. Mouthfeel is big nice and chewy silky textured flows easy with natural carbonation, a bit dry in the finish. Drinkability is nice, one of the most easy going poundable big dark beers I've ever had. Impy stouts although a bid higher in abv are usually more boozey this is dangerous due to the drinkability level. This bottle may have a little bit of age considering it's a big bottle. I haven't seen it in smaller bottles yet, even though I know they changed to their new signature bottles.
