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: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Served at nearly room temperature. Pitch black in color with very faint brown hues near the bottom edge. 1.5 fingers of soft, dense tan foam sits on top. Great classic stout aroma, including chocolate, sweet roasty malt, and coffee. Maybe some hints of cinammon in there, but very subtle. Surprisingly light weight for an imperial stout, but has a very rich and creamy mouthfeel. Not that it's LIGHT, but just not as dense and syrupy as I would have expected. Strong notes of roasted coffee beans and bitter chocolate up front, with the bitterness intensifying as it warms on the palate. Modest notes of alcohol on the back end with a moderately smooth finish. Coffee and choclate bitterness left behind on the aftertaste.

Overall, a very good imperial stout that's not going to put you on your ass immediately if you want to enjoy 2 in a sitting. This beer smelled and tasted great. Not overly complex, but still good. I do wish it had been a tad thicker in body, and a more polished finish would've been nice, but hey. Definitely worthy of it's BA rating.

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

A: Pours opaque black with coffee colored head, considerable amount of lacing, not a whole lot in the way of head retention

S: the nose begins with an onslaught of cocoa followed by notes of coffee and a huge roasted barley profile. Notes of oatmeal and hints of vanilla come through as well. This is my ideal aroma for an imperial stout- intensely roasted with lots of chocolate and coffee.

T: the tastes starts with chocolate and is quickly met by a swift kick of roasted malts that dry out any sweetness left from the malts. The finish features a touch of hop bitterness along with lingering notes of vanilla.

MF: bold body, smooth texture, low carbonation

O: this brew is quite tasty. It leans towards the roastier/dry side of things when it comes to the style. Well balanced and incredibly drinkable.

I've had this many times. One of my go to stouts. Past Time for a review

12 oz brown bottle shaped Green Flash style. Can't say enough at how much I love their bottles. Unique and beautiful shape with superb quality. The Double stout designated label color changed a while back though the brew is still as killer as its ever been. The labeling is of a black color which is more fitting for a stout of this style and quality. Sums up what it's all about. I poured this into a tulip style pint glass(stout glass) and I've also used a stemmed Tulip glass in the past.

A - black onyx in color. Black as night. A shade of rich brown head sits massively atop this black beauty. Settles into a sturdy ring of lace and leaves exceptional stick.

S - dark robust malts up front with a waft of oats alongside. Nice shots of both milk and dark chocolate do very well paired together in the nose. Some roasted coffee and a big sweet yet bitter malt bill. Exactly how a big stout should smell.

T - dark and roasted malts, splash of dark fruit, a lovely complex and warm golden oats note. ome stout spice, nice smokey character. A hint of black coffee bean, sweet milk chocolate balanced in perfectly with a dark chocolate bitterness. Finish is silky smooth and leaves a brilliant big black stout flavor that remains well after the pass

M - big and silky smooth body. Rich, bitter, and sweet but balanced to perfection. Alcohol notes play sidekick as this warms and its thick and massive texture is something of instant legend. Smooth and coating start to finish. Leaves you knowing you just enjoyed one hell of a big black colored stout.

O - quite possibly my favorite Green Flash beer which is saying a whole lot given I have overly enjoyed everything I've had from them. Just a fantastic outfit that create top shelf brews with the best of them. One of the best non barrel aged big stouts being created today. A real stunner.

22 oz. into a snifter/ no freshness date

P: This double stout sits jet black in the glass, but not completely opaque as rosy brown streams of light seep in on the edges. The dark walnut-colored head is thick and creamy, like a puffy cumulus cloud in the sky. Didn't show great retention, though.

A: Wow! Aromatics explode out of the bottle as soon as the cap is popped. Deeply roasted malts, rolled oats, bakers chocolate, molasses, coffee, and a tad of alcohol. This smells delicious...

T: ...and tastes great, too! The deeply roasted malts and pronounced oats are luxuriously smooth without tasting burnt or acrid. Bittersweet chocolate just tastes great with the coffee, while the molasses stays underneath and contributes in supporting fashion. Earthy hops provide an undercurrent of flavors that work in conjunction with the rest of the profile. The finish features more of a cocoa nib quality that feels like slightly powdery chocolate. The only knock is that once it warms up a bit, it's a tad too hot for only being 8.8% ABV. Still really good, though.

M: This is a full-bodied, rich, creamy, and slightly chewy stout that stops short of being syrupy thick.

Notes: This falls just a tad short of being a top-notch American Stout. In my opinion, if the alcohol were masked a little better, it would be. Having said that, this is still a really, really good beer that I hope gets better with some time in the cellar. Kudos to Green Flash for another winner!

Poured from 12oz bottle into snifter

A- Pours a deep dark brown, not black but brown. 100% opaque, couldn't see a thing on the other side of the glass.

S- Up front it is pretty much all roasted malt, not coffee or chocolate like with alot of stouts, but just good fine roasted malt. A hint of sweetness and dark fruits at the end.

T- Tastes just like it smells. Strongly roasted malts, not acrid like burnt coffee. Also get a nice cherry, plum, date taste.

M- Thick and wonderful. Not something that needs to be "chewed" but good solid and thick.

Overall a great double stout. Not loaded with chocolate and coffee like many so you can really enjoy the malts.

No bottle date, but purchased August 2010

A - Pours pitch black with two fingers of brown head. Head has great retention. Oily, viscous pour. Looks good.

S - Chocolate, coffee and some dark dried fruits. Nose is a bit boozy as well. Chocolate is mostly bittersweet but a bit of sweet milk chocolate comes through as well. Also a faint cola aroma. Very nice.

T - Smooth roasted malts, with chocolate, some coffee and just the right amount of char. Faint dried fruits and subtlehops round this out nicely.

M - Silky smooth mouthfeel has a nice initial creaminess, transitioning to dry and bitter on the finish.

O - Very enjoyable stout. Don't know how a fresh bottle would compares, but this holds up well.

Poured from a stubby 12 oz bottle into a brandy snifter.

Has the dark, opaque hue of all good imperial stouts. Quarter-inch cream colored head that dissolves quickly and leaves clumps of spotty lacing clinging to the inside of the glass. Nose is mostly clean, sweet roasted malts, combining with chocolate and just a hint of coffee. No hops detectable.

The label of the bottle says "Big, Bold & Complex" and it definitely delivers on the first two, as this is a weighty stout with a lot of good, robust flavor. However, "complex" isn't the term I'd use. This isn't a bad thing by any means. Through and through, this is a straightforward stout, with plenty of rich malty chocolate, hints of dark fruit and a subdued alcohol taste. I really had to consciously pace myself while drinking this, otherwise the 8.8% would have certainly caught up with me. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, just a shade away from full, with a pleasing smoothness and heft.

This is definitely the most cost-effective imperial stout I've ever had. Easy on the wallet, but just as hard-hitting as some of the other more expensive offerings in the style. I think I've found my go-to beer for the cold winter season!

Jet-black oil pours into the glass with a modest head that's a toasted marshmallow tan color. Tiny islands of lace form as the head remains at a thin skim for the duration.

Perhaps not the biggest, most decadent smell, but I get the feeling it's not trying to be some insane blow-your-head-off stout. What we get in the nose is big chocolate and big coffee. No surprises and not a ton of depth, but both are mingled equally and both come on strong. Just a bit of milk/cream sweetness in the background.

My first thought after tasting is "balance". There's char here, but unlike many other American stouts, it's not overbearing, rather balanced with just the right amount of steamed-milk sweetness, just the right amount of dark baking chocolate, hints of dark fruit (plum especially), and a flash of grassy hops. Ultimately it'll have coffee-stout lovers going berserk, and it's interesting how this isn't really sold as such. But the coffee element is the focus and the most delicious aspect. The darker, more assertive flavor elements ride through boldly in the finish. Also impressive is the alcohol, or lack thereof: 8.8% and almost nowhere to be found. Incredible.

Smooth texture, on the chewy end but not super-gooey. Carbonation tingle keeps this stout lively in the mouth.

Green Flash beers are always a wonderful experience, and this is no exception. There are certainly more complex stouts out there, but this one has tons of flavor and that's all that counts in the end.

My brother says this is in his top three for stouts. I tried a sip of it that he was drinking and it tasted delicious. Then he let me have a bottle! What a brother! Now I finally get to review this. The only other Green Flash beer I had was their Imperial IPA and oh God was that lovely. I've got high hopes for this one.

I poured this into my Guinness glass and this Double Stout is double dark. It's black and held up to the light I can't see through it at all. The head pours thick but builds slowly its creamy-frothy head that is the color of a dark mocha coffee foam. A good amount of lacing is left around.

This smells so lovely. Roasted coffee and chocolate come out strong here but it doesn't smell like a coffee stout. I usually don't like coffee stouts too much but this coffee smell makes my mouth water. There is some bitterness in there that comes from the coffee but there's an earthy hoppiness in there. I pick up cherries too that adds a bit of sweet aroma. I enjoy just smelling this.

How does this taste? Euphoric. Unbelievable. Delicious. Sinfully good. Honestly, this is one of the best stouts I've ever had. My brother was right. I'm having a hard time giving this a 5 out of 5 because, honestly, I don't know what a perfect taste...tastes like, but this is about as good as it can get. This is robust with chocolate. Wow, at first I thought this was heavy on the coffee, in a good way, but now that it has warmed up a bit the chocolate takes the lead. It's dark, cocoay, and a bit sweet. The roasted coffee flavor adds even more deliciousness and some bitterness. I'm getting some dryness, no doubt from some hops. These roasted malts are too luscious, luxurious, and heavenly. This is as good of a stout as I've ever tried. Chocolate/coffee/hop bitterness at the front, sweet and luxurious chocolate in the middle, and a lingering roastiness throughout. I can barely pick up the alcohol. Maybe this is just me, but sometimes I get a weird aftertaste from beers that are too malty and often that comes with stouts. This stout has nothing like that.

You know, I tend to like the heaviest-bodied stouts out there. The heavier the better. But despite Double Stout's intense and lovely flavors it is on the lighter side of a heavy body to me...and I like it. It's not a negative to me. It makes it easy to drink. I feel like I could drink three of these because it tastes so good and isn't too heavy. Even though it's not too full-bodied it doesn't have a watery or thin feel to it at all. Carbonation is medium. This is creamy in overall feel and smooth.

Well, my brother said it was in his top three of stouts and I have to agree. Robust, full flavor while being drinkable yet not a light-bodied stout. The Double Stout is definitely one I'll have to try again and share of its deliciousness with my friends. This is definitely one of the yummiest stouts I've ever had. I just love the flavor. Another great beer from Green Flash!

Green Flash Double Stout has a thick, cascading, creamy, tan head, a very dark brown (essentially black) appearance, and an enormous, foamy lacing ring left on the glass. The aroma is of dark-roasted malts, oatmeal, raisin, prunes, and licorice, and the flavor is the same, with coffee and chocolate notes and a nice bitterness a the end of the sip. The alcohol is masked by the dark roastiness. Mouthfeel is medium to thick and velvety, and the finish is mostly dry, mild, and quite drinkable. Overall, this is a wonderful beer, and I am enjoying the sample.

12 oz bottle.
-Pitch Dark.
-Milk Chocolate head, yum.
-Aroma that burst through were chocolate coffee, sweet but countered with some bitter.
-Taste was pretty much "sweet-ish" chocolate body with bitter coffee at the end to finish out dry.
-Mouth feel was above average, a defiantly creamy and full drink down.
A damn good stout, but my own PERSONAL taste likes more flavors. Don't get me wrong, this is very well done. Would grab again.

A: Black with a huge, fluffy light brown head. Great retention and some spotty lacing down the glass.

S: I definitely smell the oats here along with freshly ground coffee, powdered chocolate, fresh brown sugar and a touch of earth.

T: Pretty spectacular. The oats lend a creamy texture (though the mouthfeel is a bit light) and the dark chocolate and coffee flavors are excellent. The slightest hint of hops on the finish is pretty nice as well. A really great double stout.

Had on draft 10/13 at The Green Leafe Cafe
Served in a pint glass

A: This beer pours an opaque black with a 1/2 inch of medium brown head. Head recedes at a moderate pace leaving sheets of lacing on the glass.

S: Nose is huge prominent roasted malts, they really dominate the nose. Notes of chocolate and coffee accentuate the malt presence.

T: Taste is big milk chocolate at the forefront. Roasted malts come through and dominate the middle with the milk chocolate blending nicely with the roasted malts. The back end of the roasted malt taste has the notes of coffee that come in and finish this beer out.

M: Medium to fuller body, moderate carbonation. light creamy body with a sticky finish.

O: Goes down very easy, very tasty, somewhat filling, well hidden kick, very good representation of style. Ahhhh - a fantastic stout to sit back and if you can hang with the ABV, enjoy for a little bit.

Thanks to jwc215 for this brew.

Pours a very nice dark brown color, nice carbonation, nice one-finger creamy tan head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, lots of nice chocolate/toffee/caramel notes. The taste is big and malty, dark chocolates hit next, with some slight bitterness. Medium body, the alcohol is hidden very well with this brew. Very drinkable, a joy to drink, Thanks Joe.

It looks thick pouring out! The last drops cling to the bottle and finally let go with an uncommon heft. Great head formation with a rocky espresso-like cap.

Smell is wonderfully full of roasted malts. Like smelling coffee beans. I'd rank the aroma right up there with the best imperial stouts I've had. Maybe a molasses note in there too. Hard to tell on hops with all that roast.

Taste doesn't disappoint. Full on roasty espresso flavor from start to finish. Body is creamy and slightly light on the finish. Drinkability is high for this style. A bit lighter than Yeti or Old Rasputin, but certainly as enjoyable. Chocolate, smoke, some bitterness....it's all working together nicely. Body is medium, and maybe a bit light for the style (but I'm not complaining...some times I don't want a full on 10% abv beer).

Glad I finally got to try this. Green Flash makes some nice beers and this one is another I'll be happy to have again some day.

Live review

Oil change thickness and color, not much head, barely a skin of light brown, some clingy legs of petroleum consistency.

Medium aroma, espresso and roasty grain, molasses, dark caramel, fresh hop bitter scent, even a hint of floral.

Hold the phone! Quite full flavored, starts deep roasty grain and coffee bitter, bitter chocolate, alcohol spice, sweet burnt caramel, and some really deep herbal, char bitter, and pine in a remarkably dry finish which holds an illusion of balance with a micro-unit of sweet.

Very thick, yet feels less viscous, very low carb., lasting in the mouth, clean flavors and cling, excellent finish that (slap me for this, I deserve it) could be a touch more sweet.

What a great stout, extemely brash, bright, and a killer dry finish for such a crankin' malt bill. Huge, heavenly, highly recommended.

Yummy! Nearly pitch black with a dark tan head. Reminsicent of motor oil mixed with cola.

Chocolates, liqueur and coffee all come through in the nose.

Rich, malty taste with slight vinous hints, strong coffee notes and traces of dark chocolate. Hops creep in every now and then, just so you know they're in there.

Very smooth, lovely stout that is dangerously drinkable at 8.8%.

A-black with a nice tan head

S-chocolate covered coffee beans and grassy hops. Medium strength

T-comes in with a pretty good taste of roasted grains and chocolate cocoa beans. It's a great taste. Matching after-taste.

M-medium dry carbonation with a dry finish

O-Once again, green flash makes an amazing beer for an amazing price. This isn't something that will compare with the higher end imperial stouts but it'll definitely please you.

ADJUSTMENT made on 11/18/2015: I really liked the taste and mouth-feel this time. Upping those ratings, and the overall.

ADJUSTMENT made on 10/21/2015: I am lowering the rating after having had it recently and not being as impressed as with the last one I had.

12OZ, Best By 10/1/2015 (I believe I bought this sometime in later winter of this year, so my guess is it has at least 6 months of age on it).

Pours inky black, with a thick, light caramel-colored head that lasts nearly a minute, with bubbles both large and small; nice lacing. Smells of chocolate, coffee, and perhaps some booze. Lots going on in the flavor: chocolate, coffee, and perhaps even port wine (?) with a dry finish (ADJUSTMENT made on 11/18/2015: licorice mid palete, with lots of molasses on the finish; in many ways, it felt like I was drinking bread; I loved it).

I really like this beer. I drank this once when I bought it, yet I don't remember it being this good; perhaps, I am simply paying more attention this time, but my guess is this beer has changed, and for the better. This is a great Imperial stout, especially for the price point of $8-9 a four pack. I plan to buy more to keep on hand, and I look forward to continuing to see how it ages (though at only 8.8% my guess is it won't benefit from age too much longer).

A: Pours an impenetrable jet black with 2 fingers of fluffy, khaki colored head that dissipates slowly. Creamy lacing clings to the side of the glass.

N: Roasted barley, dark chocolate, toffee, a hint of espresso and there's some fresh wafts of vanilla.

T: Creamy vanilla, milk chocolate and roasted barley upfront. Mid-palette brings some toffee and slightly darker chocolate notes. Finishes with hints of espresso and toffee.

M: Medium-full bodied, creamy, velvety, smooth and surprisingly clean.

O: This is an incredibly easy drinking Imperial Stout. The flavors are more subdued compared to other RISs but it still remains rich and complex. Expertly balanced and very well done. There's a lot of vanilla going on and I'm liking it.

Look. Dark, dark mahogany, with a medium brown, medium sized head, my favorite look.
Smell. Charred wood with bit of french roast coffee.
Taste. Fairly balanced, starts with a malty richness with a bit of sweetness then finishes with a somewhat more pronounced hoppy bitterness. Pretty good.
Mouth feel. Nice heavy body, chewy, spongey, oily then a dry, upper back palette-smacking finish.
Overall. My favorite is still a sweeter, maltier beer, but this is very good for a more balanced stout.

Finished a novel and sipped a stout...good evening. Bottle to pint glass. Pours a very dark, opaque brown with a latte-colored head. Smell is a bit of hops, roasted grains, coffee, and a bit of spice (cloves?). Taste is dried figs and molasses cookies, maybe some bitter chocolate. Not much alcohol in the flavor. Mouthfeel wasn't quite as rich and thick as I was expecting, but still solid. Overall, this is an excellent imperial stout.

12oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass. Pours a thick vicious black w/ a big dark mocha head and very sticky lacing. Very very good looking stout.

I'm picking up scents of milk chocolate, cocoa, and a slight amount of coffee/expresso. There's also a little vanilla in the mix. I can pick all of that up in the flavors. Very bold, dark chocolate is abundant, slightly bitter, but a sweetness remains.

Mouthfeel is okay .. would have liked it a bit thicker and creamy, but it was well carbonated and remains light.. finishes great. Drinkabilty was surprisingly high. It's hard to stop drinking. Very enjoyable Imperial Stout!

Grabbed this at Colonial Wine and Spirits in Acton, Massachusetts a few months back.

Poured a deep black with quarter inch chocolatey head and thick lacing.

Smelled of richly sweet malt and chocolate and figgy fruit. Tastes of sweet chocolately goodness and smooth malt. This is a tastey and satisfying brew. Very smooth on the palate, no bitterness on the end, a nice drinking beer, but a session brew by no means at 8.8%. I enjoyed every sip.
