Green Flash Silva Stout 2015
The Green Flash Silva Stout 2015 is a limited edition bourbon barrel aged stout from Green Flash’s Cellar 3, which is a newer space exclusively dedicated to barrel-aged beer. This bold and distinctive double stout does not disappoint, with a rich and smoky, barrel-aged flavor. All of the time and care devoted to making this beer is evident from the first sip, with distinctive notes bestowed by the barrel-aging process resulting in a unique taste (Green Flash describes the notes as “oak, vanilla, dark chocolate, coffee, roasted barley and ripe cherry”). The Silva Stout weighs in at 10.1% ABV, making this a strong beer both in terms of flavor and alcoholic content. This beer has a midnight black color that matches its roasty taste. It would be great after a meal, or in the evening in general due to the rich flavor and texture. You can read more about this excellent beer over at the Green Flash website.
