Green Flash Brewing Stout and Frustration

Flavius: Why are not many people subscribed to my blog?
Meterman: It's crappy
F: Could you help and elaborate.
M: It's really crappy.
F: You are not helping things.
M: You just noticed that, and I thought you were slow.
F: Any ideas how to draw more readers to my blog?
M: Try jumping off a bridge.
F: Great idea! That would be great publicity, it might even hit the evening news!
M: No just jump off the bridge; I'm tired of listening to you whine.

Green Flash Brewing Stout

Rate Beer 3.88 98th percentile
Beer Advocate A-

Taste +4

The nose is full of roast and peat; almost like a good smokey single malt. There are big hits of roasted and sweet malt with every gulp. You can also taste slight bitter chocolate notes after the roast leaves. It finished off with a nice alcohol ting.

Aftertaste +2

There is a full mouth coating of roast that slowly, very slowly fades away.

Alcohol +1 8.8%

The very auspicious alcohol content is not out of place and you can taste it.

Value +1

It was above average price for a 750ml craft beer, but not outrageous for the flavour you get.

Ingame Enhancement 0

Lounged around Meterman's house and entertained kids. Good news for the zombies.

Overall 8/10 BOOM HEADSHOT

This is perhaps one of the greatest stouts I have ever tasted. I picked this up at the Brewery Creek CBAW; they have a great selection of craft beers. They were out of stock of the Rogue XXX Stout; this is the greatest stout I have ever tasted.
