4.18/5 rDev +2%
Pours black with large mocha head. Smells of roasted, almost smokey, malt, slight coffee and a tinge of bittersweet chocolate. Taste is largely roasted malt. Not super sweet, with some hop bitter going on. Mouthfeel isn't super heavy. Nice long roasty cocoa aftertaste. A very nice double stout that keeps the sweetness in check. Yummy! I was very impressed by this one.

A. Nearly black appearance with a one finger tan head that leaves a nice amount of lacing.
S. Shy nose that displays a bit of coffee, fudge chocolate and roasted malt.
T. Flavorful stout with coffee, roasted malt and dark chocolate. There is just enough hop bitterness to counteract the malt sweetness. Lingering finish of roasted malt.
M. Creamy, big bodied mouth feel with very low carbonation.
O. I bought this on a whim and was pleasantly surprised at how drinkable this stout is. The sweetness vs. bitterness is just about perfect. Priced competitively too. I will be keeping a few of these on-hand during the winter months.

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.
