Brewed by:
Green Flash Brewing Co.
California, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
We explored 19th Century British Stout recipes, then charted a fresh course to land on a modern American version of the old-world classic. Our Double Stout encompasses the very best of both worlds. Golden naked oats, dark crystal and roasted malt offer a luscious balance of bittersweet chocolate and hints of coffee. Fair winds and following seas. Smooth sailing, all the way home.

Double stout pours a black color with a large tan lacing head. The aroma is full of licorice and coffee notes. The taste has a mellow boozy undertone, with black licorice, mixed in with creamy coffee notes. Great body, great full flavors. Overall a very bold and flavorful stout.

Picked up a 4 pack not realizing it was a year old, first time with this brew.
Pours black with large creamy head, looks fantastic. Not much smell.
Taste is smooth and creamy. Not a lot of flavor but nice, def can't taste the alcohol.
Very Easily drinkable

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.
