8 oz goblet at Smith's Craft Beer House in Queenstown. Smooth stout in both taste and mouth feel. Toasted malt, coffee, and small amounts of chocolate. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bulldogops (2320) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2016
Rating #1874 - 2015.08.31 - Draught - Three Boars. Dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. Super sweet cappucinoey pour - vanilla, earth, espresso. Taste is very rich in cocoa, mild toffee/vanilla with a sweeter than expected finish. Nice depth with an earthy coffee roasty bitterness. Excellent.

nosajhongkong (54) - 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.

nickd717 (4289) - Sofia, BULGARIA - JUL 26, 2016
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.

explosivedog (492) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 23, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2016 Pint at Vultures 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 (10000) - 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 thats 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 (27) - 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.
