This stout really surprised me. As a fan of Green Flash, I've always known them for hoppy west coast beers, I didn't expect such a smooth, complex, enjoyable stout. This one pours a jet black hue with a thick lasting ta n head and creamy lacing. The aroma is a sweet rich blend of chocolate, coffee, caramel, vanilla, and a little smokiness. The body is creamy and luscious. Flavor follows the nose only even more rich and complex. Reminds me of some of the special stouts from Southern Tier. This was damn goid and may even become my new go to stout.

Bottle. Black colour, with an enormous brownish head that last for long good while and leaves a milky lace. My first thouhgt was "What's that horrible smell? It's like smelling ink. Now, just leave it aside for a while and it opens to chocolate, vanilla, coffee, liquorice, raisins, brandy... and milk. A really creamy palate, plus a medium to full body makes you really enjoy it. Taste is as smell: milk chocolate, vanilla, raisins, brandy, coffee. Really great.

green flash, more known by me for their IPAs. this one is actually well done, light roasted chocolate and bready nose, medium full mouth feel with good balance of bitter dark chocolate and roasted coffee notes. really well done stout, highly drinkable, slightly dry and bitter

A - Good pour, with dark head solid black appearance

S- I am not sure what I am detecting in smell, but it is not pleasant. It smells almost like smoked beef on a metal plate. Small hints of chocolate

T- On my first taste, the taste matched the smell, but as I continued to drink the smell got better and the true taste was able to shine though. Bitter roasted malt and dark chocolate with hints of expresso. Very bitter for a stout.

M - More foamy than most stouts and medium viscosity.

O - Overall the taste was good but the smell was to much to over come, I do not think I will purchase again.
