Poured an opaque dark chocolate color with less than 1F in a snifter.
The aroma wafts from the glass- it's excellent, although not strong: fruit, especially fig, and chocolate.

The mouth feel is not very carbonated as expected.

The taste is stands out in this beer. Strong fig, fruit, and chocolate. Unlike other US brewed imperial stouts, there is more emphasis on the fig- fruit quality of the taste, and not chocolate.
The UK Target hops in the beer yield special qualities and bring out the fruit.

Roasted malt is brought out as the beer warms.

Overall, another excellent beer from Green Flash. Easy drinking, yet complex.
