Had this on 2012-04-08 in Columbia, PA

A - Dark molasses with a dark, 3.5-finger tan head and ringed lacing.

S - Mild roasted malt with a little chocolate and coffee and a smidge of wood tannin.

T - Dark/burnt roasted grain and coffee, dark chocolate, touch of anise, astringent, only mildly sweet. Aftertaste is burnt/roasted with a good amount of hop bitterness.

M - Medium body and light carbonation. Moderately creamy and smooth but dries out.

O - Enjoyed it more from the bottle than on-tap; perhaps because the food aromas in the restaurant were interfering. It's not overly complex but this is worth drinking, especially if you are looking for a dark/burnt stout experience.

A: beautiful dark, almost black, color, like a glassful of oil with a thick cafe au lait colored head.
B: strong aromas of coffee, tobacco, licorice, chestnut.
T: Beautiful balance here. Starts out with a pleasant bitter hop kick then smooths out to a sweet malted finish.
M: Quite full and thick with a slight syrupy quality but very smooth. Perfect light subtle carbonation.

Really a great, rich, tasty stout.

A - Pours a dark dark brown, as close to black as could be. A nice full finger of rich chocolate colored head, decent retention, thickish tan outer ring remains. Solid lacing.

S - Roasty and bold bitter/dark chocolate aromas. A little smokey/ashy too.

T - Roasty/smokey and bitter, sweet bitter chocolates at the back end. Pretty simple but pretty bold and delightful. Slightly boozy

M - Medium bodied-Full bodied, appropriate carbonation. Almost a sipper

O - A nice bold flavorful double stout, definitely a fan. Should be a fun 64 oz's.

12 oz distinctive brown bottle served in a snifter.

A black, opaque brew with a short-lived tan head, More than ample bubbly lacing left on the glass.

As expected, the aroma is dominated by dark roasted malts with a nice hint of dark chocolate. The flavor profile is a little marred, IMO, by a slight sour note {not apparent in more recent tasting). Very long-lasting flavor of dark malt with a hint of hops.

M: Full body with very good carbonation. Smooth but with a bit of crispness.

O: a rich stout favoring lots of heavily roasted malts.

(Revised and upgraded with bottle consumed in Nov. 2013).

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Black with a lingering two finger dark tan head. Nice amount of thick lacing.

Smell- Dark chocolate and roasted malt with a hint of booziness.

Taste- Dark roasted malt with some char and chocolate notes. No trace of the booziness that I detected in the nose.

Mouthfeel- Full bodied, smooth, and creamy. Perfect amount of carbonation for the style.

Overall- Great tasting stout. I would highly recommend this.

A: Poured a half finger head that settles to a mocha thin cap. Color is pitch black. Lacing is present but does not stick around.

S: Roasty, creamy, fruity. Dark fruits, espresso beans, ash, thick malt, chocolate. It is like I'm breathing in a mocha coated steam room.

T: The roasted malt provides a solid backbone. As the beer enters my palate, I taste the grassy hops, bittersweet chocolate, plums, raisons, a touch of cinnamon.

M: Balanced. Creamy and smooth. Carbonation is tingly and full, it's like I'm home.

O: One of my favorite sessionable stouts, this one rises to the top.

bottle poured into tulip

A - A perfect black color, with a nice dark roasty brown head at the top that leaves lacing the whole time you drink.

S - Sweet nose, chocolate, a slight hint of coffee and dark fruits throughout.

T - Almost just like the nose, lots of chocolate and coffee throughout this experience, great tasting and roasty.

M - Low carbonation and nice creamy mouthfeel.

O - A great tasting stout from GreenFlash, enjoyed this brew very much, great for a cold night.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Pours a deep black with a nice tan head. It dissipated to a ring but with some decent lacing.

Aroma is nice and roasty. But of caramel and some dark chocolate. Some coffee too.

Taste is a solid stout. Just a nice and roasty and smooth stout. The roast bites the tongue in the finish. Decent amount of caramel. Some dark chocolate and a bit of espresso flavors.

Mouthfeel is smooth and has a nice carb.

Overall a tasty stout. Nothin fancy just a solid stout. Will be having this often.
