A-black with a nice tan head

S-chocolate covered coffee beans and grassy hops. Medium strength

T-comes in with a pretty good taste of roasted grains and chocolate cocoa beans. It's a great taste. Matching after-taste.

M-medium dry carbonation with a dry finish

O-Once again, green flash makes an amazing beer for an amazing price. This isn't something that will compare with the higher end imperial stouts but it'll definitely please you.

Having this again, not nearly as good as I remember. It's good but not AS.

Poured from bottle into Founders Snifter. Thick brown or mocha two finger head; some retention on glass. Very black in color, looks a bit like motor oil. Aroma is full of roasted coffee and malt, light sweetness and chocolate. Taste is similar, but tons of roasted flavor is most present -- coffee and malt. There is a certain degree of hop bitterness that I enjoy here as well. This beer is definitely "chewy" for an imperial stout. Mouthfeel is smooth, and dangerously drinkable, no noticeable ABV. Love the beer, must try for those who like the style. Will definitely seek out again. Cheers.

This is a very dark, completely black brew,. The head is a tan, soapy consistency. It's a wonderfully aromatic stout...roasted...smokey, dark fruit skins, charcoal, coffee...dates, wood, slightly burnt grain. Sharp taste: sweet, with a touch of astringency from the burnt grain...full in flavor. Some warmth, but no real alcohol note. It's a full, jagged, but very engaging brew.

Bottled on 05/22/12

A: Pours a pitch black color with a fingers worth of brown head that retains well

S: Very roasty, with notes of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Malt bomb

T: Again, nice roasty malts with big hints of anise, chocolate, coffee, and a little smoke as well. Some light hops add a little bitterness, but overall this is a definite malt bomb. Alcohol is hidden extremely well

M: Full bodied with low-moderate carbonation. Smooth

O: A great example of the style, the complexity really shines and shows off the malts very well. Dangerously easy to drink, too. A must try for fans of the style

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.
