Green Flash Double Stout ....

Today's beer is Double Stout Black Ale from Green Flash Brewing Company.  8.8% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce bottle.  The web site shows 45 IBUs.

Double Stout poured with a medium, rich chocolaty brown head.  Beer color is a dark blackish brown.  No light shines through the glass when held up to the light.  The aroma is chocolate, roasted malt and a little dark fruit.  The taste has even more roasted malt, almost smoky, with cocoa and vanilla.  Bittersweet chocolate.  Creamy, and leaves some of that cocoa-like coating on your mouth that many of the stouts do.  The aftertaste leaves you with a little smoke and bitter.
