The best beer at Flat Branch. Incredibly smooth and creamy. Glides down the throat just as if it was oil. Nice sweet taste with some chocolate and coffee notes. Good all around.

On draft at the source. Great appearance. Near black with a creamy beige head. The aroma brings subtle notes of chocolate, hints of bread. A rather weak scent. The flavor is more robust, with chocolate character emerging atop a lightly toasted malt body. Smooth and creamy feel. Quite easy to drink. A solid example of the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the brewpub. Served with a stir straw. Black with a hint of red. A creamy 1/4 inch tan foam. Thisvis a sweet fruity stout that seems to be nitro infused. A bit of chocolate and, perhaps, some cinnamon. Caramel and mollasses comes late. This is as gentle a stout as has ever passed these lips.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with dark brown head. Roasted and a little smoked malt on the aroma balanced with some malty sweet aromas. Flavor is worty sweet but finishes dry. Mouthfeel was creamy to start and dry and a little astringent to finish. Very low carbonation hurt the mouthfeel of it. Overall unique and pleasant sweet stout.
