It's fine- nothing exceptional though. But try it for yourself, I can't see anyone DISLIKING it!

It's pretty weak on every level compared to the top tier American Double Stouts. Certainly smells great...but I rate beers primarily based on taste. And it's very good - not great.

It's thin, but there's no astringent aftertaste.

Thin lacing didn't hang around too long.

I think it might have more "mass appeal" than a RIS or something with a 10% + ABV.

The 4-pack I purchased was reasonably priced.

Green Flash has a lineup of some pretty unique beers, and this is certainly one of them.

In the aroma is intense, grainy molasses with savory, mesquite-like smokiness and a sweet chocolate undertone plus freshly ground coffee after a couple minutes. The light brown head is dense and frothy and leaves loads of lacing; the body is black and opaque. It is rich and strongly flavored with tart, husky maltiness; some light fruitiness is briefly detectable. The flavor soon mellows out and becomes more like old coffee backed by sweet, grainy malt with a bitter cocoa finish. It is full-bodied and velvety with a little carbonic bite and some alcohol warming.

Complex and intense, delicious and satisfying. Its character changes over time without becoming less enjoyable. The aroma is appetizing with molasses and mesquite, chocolate and coffee. And there is lots of rich, silky malt in the flavor along with hints of coffee and cocoa.
