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.

In the aroma is intense, grainy molasses with savory, mesquite-like smokiness and a sweet chocolate undertone plus freshly ground coffee after a couple minutes. The light brown head is dense and frothy and leaves loads of lacing; the body is black and opaque. It is rich and strongly flavored with tart, husky maltiness; some light fruitiness is briefly detectable. The flavor soon mellows out and becomes more like old coffee backed by sweet, grainy malt with a bitter cocoa finish. It is full-bodied and velvety with a little carbonic bite and some alcohol warming.

Complex and intense, delicious and satisfying. Its character changes over time without becoming less enjoyable. The aroma is appetizing with molasses and mesquite, chocolate and coffee. And there is lots of rich, silky malt in the flavor along with hints of coffee and cocoa.
