In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from Green Flash Brewing from California. Thanks again to my friend Jay for sharing this brew with me. If you read my beer blog post earlier, you know the history of this brewery from the southern part of California. If you have not, please ,read that beer blog post to get to know this brewery. Let us get into beer.
It has a jet black color with a creamy tan color head on this stout. The aroma is chocolate, hint of coffee, and toffee notes. The taste is a creamy chocolate with a chocolate and caramel aftertaste. This double stout is a scary drinkable.
Here is a description from their website (www.greenflashbrew.com):
Double Stout Black Ale
Golden naked oats mashed with dark crystal and robust roasted malts create a luscious black brew with satin-smooth finish. An old-world style, done the Green Flash way. Big, bold, flavorful and complex.

In the end, this is a big beer and stout. It is nicely balance and extremely drinkable. It rich and full of flavor. This brewery knows how to make some great beers asides India Pale Ales. They are not like most breweries that know how to make one beer style great and rest of their beer styles are bad or good. This brewery took some time and learn how to brew beer. They put some thought behind this beer and rest of their line up. I love this beer and I will be drinking it again down the road. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
