Bottle. Pours a dark brown to black with an off white head. Lactose and sugar on the nose. Hint of chocolate coffee and milk in the taste with creamy roastiness. Palate a little thin even for the style IMO. Not bad at all but itís missing something I canít quite put my finger on.

Bottle to glass - nose is roast and sweet chocolate. Sip adds coffee and a complex bitterness. Decent sweetness. A little flat. Short finish.

12 oz. pours jet black with creamy islands of cappuccino foam on top. Aroma of espresso and cream with a touch of ozone. Flavor is dark chocolate and too much sourish lactose. Some dark toast on the finish just rescues this one from the almost-sickening sweet and sour milkiness. Medium body is soft with a pleasant medium level of carbonation. A little sticky, but some balance is provided by a light astringency. Aptly named.

Bought a 6 pack art earth fare after having a sample there. Overall a good stout that was fairly bitter. Did not have a lot of different flavor notes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Moderate coffee roast with a little fudge; touches of vanilla. Appearance: Jet black pour with a mocha head that settles into a slightly sticky skin. Flavor: Lactose and light fudge up front with more coffee roast presence toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, astringent finish. Overall: A pretty nice milk stout; one of the better Flat 12 beers Iíve had.
