Green Flash Silva Stout
From Green Flash – “Silva Stout took a lot of patience. We aged our Double Stout in oak bourbon barrels for seventeen months. Flavors are very complex. It starts off with dark chocolate truffles rolled in cocoa powder. Next is the vanilla and wood notes, with rich cherry-like fruitiness. After racking and filtering the ale, we blended in just the right amount of freshly brewed Double Stout to provide the perfect balance of bourbon barrel aging and freshness.
Green Flash Brewing – Green Flash Silva Stout – 12 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. 10.1% abv.
Appearance: Pours a midnight brown with a thin, frothy tan film for head.
Aroma: Bourbon and chocolate pudding. Simply amazing, I could have stuck my nose in the glass all day long.
Taste: Bourbon, vanilla, milk chocolate and light roast.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, sticky.
Overall: Mind blowingly amazing. I love bourbon barrel aged stouts. I like them goopy, I like them thin. This was somewhere in the middle of those two. A masterpiece from Green Flash.
