BEER INFO

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.

I'm not big on stouts but this will get me to look at more. Toasty, Carmel, some type of darker fruit with a hop hint. Two finger brown head. Mouthfeel is perfect! can't get any smoother with a hop hint. I like.

Delicious. My first foray into Green Flash's stuff and it's damn near a home run. Not something I would sit and drink several of, but an excellent Imperial Stout that doesn't let the alcohol content overwhelm its complex flavors, as many other Imperials do.
