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

Had on tap at Ralston's draft house. This is my favorite Indiana beer so far. A nice dark color with a thin light brown head. Coffee and dark chocolate flavor. Coffee bean aftertaste. Not too much alcohol, and a good balance for an after dinner drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fleagle (16) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2013
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a shaker, black with a tan head. Taste is heavy on the coffee with some chocolate. Not at all sweet, thank God. Mouth feel is thinner than most porters. Well worth trying and well worth having again.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle. 4/7/13. Pours opaque brown black with a massive bubbly light-brown head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, coffee, lightly fruity, toasty. Taste is coffee, chocolate, creamy, chalky, really pretty nice. Here’s the problem; the carbonation is obnoxious. Just too much. Highly drinkable; good flavor; but that carbonation hurts.
