nosajhongkong (19) - North Point, HONG KONG - JUL 28, 2016
On tap at Roundhouse Central HK. Appearance: Pours a very dark brown colour with thin to medium tan head which leaves fair bit of crazy lacing. Aroma: Almost like a cup of flat white, but with alcohol. Notes of roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, vanilla milk with hints of lactose, and chocolate/caramel malt sweetness. Taste: Very much the same as the aroma. Medium vanilla and milky sweetness, with mild roasted coffee beans bitterness. Palate: Very sweet and creamy finish. Mouthfeel is quite watery. The carbonation is higher than expected for a sweet stout and the body is too light as well. Overall: A delightful and very coffee-like sweet stout, but at the same time nothing really stands out or tastes special. It smells like flat white coffee obviously , but the palate and the body could have definitely done better by 8 wired.

Draft at 16 Tun in Auckland. Beautiful appearance, black with a small cappuccino-colored head. Aroma is very nice chocolate and coffee with cream and sugar. The flavor is also like a chocolate milkshake - or flat white if you will. Moderately sweet, lots of smooth coffee and dark chocolate. Medium-bodied and incredibly smooth on the feelz. Very legit.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2016 Pint at Vulturesí Lane. Lots of coffee and very creamy. Tastes just like a flat white, with perhaps not quite enough stout coming through.

[8248-20160512] Tap. Roasted coffee tang aroma. Black body with a medium-lasting creamy tan head. Tangy roasted coffee chocolate milk flavour. Full body. Interesting. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

jercraigs (9681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2016
2016-05-12. Black body with a modest creamy tan head. 3+ Aroma of coffee roast. I imagine it smells of a fresh cup of coffee with milk added but suspect thatís at least partly subliminal. 6++ Flavour has strong coffee character, dry bitter roast up front, sweeter dark malt core follows. Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ nice but more coffee than my preference. Others will like it more I expect. 6/3-4/7+/3/13-14 On tap at Craft, Hamilton, NZ.

keenano (21) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 30, 2016
Pours near black from the bottle - very thin head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of espresso, huge coffee, burnt toast, cola. Very quick, short palate of heavily roasted coffee. Very light on the flavours and on the body overall, yet heavily carbonated. Overall, the Flat White came out a little too flat for my tastes.

davidezdonz (267) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - APR 22, 2016
A 500ml bottle from batch #19 with a best before date of 3rd June 2016 and poured into a Spiegelau stout glass. It poured a deep dark brown colour with a less than one finger dark tan head that dissipated quickly but left some spotty lacing. Aromas of espresso, roasty coffee, dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla sweetness. Tastes similar with roast espresso coffee, milky, milk chocolate and vanilla. Medium to light bodied with medium prickly carbonation. Overall, this was ok. Body was on the light side and carbonation perhaps a bit too high for my liking. But I think that I prefer an actual flat white.

Patersoi (152) - AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2016
Aroma has hints of coffee. Pours deep brown with thinning head. Like an iced coffee the beans are all there - coffee and vanilla, plus some malt sweetness. Medium soft mouth feel and creamy finish. Why is the android app so much worse than iOS?

UXO (1406) - CANADA - FEB 10, 2016
Appearance: opaque black with brown margins, one finger of fluffy light beige head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: espresso, lactose, light chocolate and roasty notes. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (6/10) Palate: medium body tending slightly to the watery, lively to moderate carbonation, medium duration building bitter and light tart finish. (3/5) Not really what I was expecting. Yes, thereís a little lactose milky sweetness in it, but thereís also a surprising tart note - and though Iím a big fan of sours, that just doesnít belong in this style. The body is also surprisingly light and thing, buoyed by a higher than expected carbonation. And the finish, in addition to being marred by the tart note, is less a hop or roasty malt bitterness, and more an over-extracted espresso bean one. A bit of a mess, at least as far as adherence to the style goes. And to be brutally honest, Iím liking it less as the pint progresses. Not one of their better offerings. (12/20)

Dark brown with minimal beige head. Aroma of coffee. Taste is watered down coffee, a bit sour, not very sweet. More a porter than a stout. Nothing amazing.
