COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2013
12 ounce bottle bought in Indianapolis. A big tan head takes a long time to subside. The aroma has plenty of chocolates and some roasted coffee notes. Less of both in the flavor but there are roasted flavors. Brown sugar and molasses with floral notes. Cocoa. A bit of bright hop flavors that grow at the finish making it a black IPA almost. It is fairly bitter at the finish. A creamy feel is nice. This is a solid beer.

12oz bottle from StFun poured into a shaker. Pours almost black with a slight ruby hue and a huge nut brown head. Aroma of coffee and a little dark chocolate. Taste is light bitter. Milk and dark chocolate and strong espresso on the finish. Medium bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, great. This would nake an awesome everyday drinker.

Pours dark brown with a massive head. Smells of roasted coffee and quite a bit of earthiness. Tastes the same with bitterness and tiny sweetness on the end. Very thin. Meh

PorterPounder (5192) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Chattanooga, Tn. - Riverside Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Dark brown pour, slight khaki colored head that leaves a light film of lacing. Aroma has some creosote notes, some baker’s chocolate, a touch of black coffee. Flavor is bold and robust with some light molasses, a nice dollop of unsweetened chocolate. a bit of espresso. Mouthfeel has a nice chalkiness to it. Very pleasantly surprised after looking at the silly label.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of queenholly. Color is deep brown, borderline black. Nice head retention that left foam after the beer was complete. Nose is real deep molasses, in fact layers of molasses, also chocolate and traces of wood. Flavor is in reverse order with chocolate up front then getting molasses and Earthy, burnt coffee. Texture is dry and roasted. Whoa, thanks for this bottle Rebekah! This is no doubt a fresh bottle. Well above average porter. Real easy to chug down!

Bottle. Nice little bit of roasting to the nose of this one. Taste has a lot of the same roasting to it, and seems to be right on the edge of having a little sweetness, just not quite. Very good, though.
