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.

Beautiful black brew tinged with brown hues. Big, full brown head, with excellent retention and lacing.

Very nice strong but balanced aroma: roasted barley, cream, and cocoa. Just the barest hint of grapes in the background.

Flavor follows the nose: lots of roasted barley, manifest as a bitter dark stout. Powdered cocoa, a hint of black coffee, chewy barley, and a nice creamy undertone. Very slight alcohol heat.

Silky, thick mouthfeel, shy of the thicker stouts. A little back-end heat. No foaming or sting. Lovely.

This is a well-crafted, straight forward imperial stout, and is an excellent representative thereof. It's not overly hoppy, letting the bitterness of the roasted malt carry the balance. It has a depth of flavor that is delicious without being overpowering. I think this is an excellent brew, offered at an excellent price point.

It was a good Stout. Nothing to write home about. I'm not sure how amazing it was though considering I'm not a big Stout drinker, so I may have to revisit it at a later date.
