Double StoutDouble Stout

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Snifter.

Appearance: Pitch black with thick tan head and nice lacing rings.

Smell: Oats, molasses and strong roasted notes, but not too much chocolate or coffee. Somewhat chalky aroma.

Taste: Heavily roasted with oats, bittersweet chocolate and coffee. Some spicy hops notes but that is secondary to the roast. Some lingering smoke, molasses and maybe even a hint of pine or citrus.

Feel: Extremely smooth and creamy. Full bodied, low carbonation with a finish that dries up just enough. Slightly warming. Fantastic mouthfeel.

Overall: Exceedingly good, strong Oatmeal Stout. I am simply blown away, especially considering the availability and price.
