The Flat12 Porter is inspired by the robust porters favored by the Industrial-age working men of Europe. We chose to emphasize balance from a combination of dark grains including brown malt, which was the primary roasted grain of the time. This Flat12 creation is smooth and balanced with slight roast and chocolate notes, yet it’s not heavy, just like a good porter should be. ABV: 5.5% IBU: 34.1

Pours black. Thick, foamy, tan head. Nose is malty. Taste - a bit bitter. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Decent brew. Not a favorite porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UrbanCaveman (183) - Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Poured from a 12-oz bottle into a pint glass (a North Coast Old Rasputin glass with a slight bell), at approximately 50 degrees F. A: Pours very dark brown one can see hints of light through, colored similar to a medium roast coffee. Thick light tan head of tight, tiny bubbles, leaves a good amount of tiny-bubble lacing on the glass. S: Yeast, thick yeast, and bread. There are some faint hints of dark chocolate, and something that reminds me of walnut - not the actual nut, but the wet green-black husk that surrounds one as it falls from the tree. T: As promised by the nose, bread, hardtack biscuit, and yeast at the fore, with a bitterness reminiscent of a plain black dark roast coffee. Some nuttiness lingers on after the finish, with some faint echoes of toffee and cocoa. M: Full and smooth, like silk folded thick gliding through the mouth. The feel stays strong to the end, rather than going a bit watery as many porters do. O: A nice, sessionable porter, rich and heavy on malt flavors. Would repeat, unless an Ed Fitz or better was available.

Aroma is toffee, caramel and dark malts. The flavor is toffee, caramel, dark malts, coffee and a dryish/acidic finish.

Ktwse (2961) - SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2014
Pours hazy brown with low light tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate and light coffee, hints of vanilla. Taste is light milk chocolate sweet initially, then a coffee and dark chocolate bitter takes over. Body is too light for the beer, with about average carbonation.

Dark brown color with a tan head. Roasted malt in the nose, caramel malts, little to no hops noticed. Lively carbonation, rich flavor, easy to drink. Drank my weight in these at the hotel bar over a week. Good stuff

Bottle @ Greg’s dump. Pours a reddish brown appearance with a tan head. A touch smoky, burnt malty, chocolate, lightly nutty aroma. Pretty good carbonation. Balanced flavor. Dark chocolate, earthy hoppy flavor. Pretty good.

An excellent porter with lots going on. A mouthful of flavors with coffee and chocolate notes strongest. The dark ale has a beautiful chocolate colored head. I love stout and this comes very close in taste.
