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 its not heavy, just like a good porter should be. ABV: 5.5% IBU: 34.1

Drake (13301) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2014 Found this at RBWG, which is good for the brewery as the bottle I tried was terrible. This one was a growler. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, nuts, chocolate, mild hops. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, nuts, mild hops. Medium bodied. 8/3/8/3/16.

Previous rating (6/2/5/3/8)... 12 ounce bottle from a trade. Pours a.... OK now half the beers on the floor and I have a glass full of foam. The worst gusher Ive seen in quite some time, but that doesnt mean it wont be good. Just ask De Dolle. Im going to let this one sit for a while.

OK... just poured the rest of the bottle down the drain because I got sick of dealing with it. Got maybe about 4 ounces in the glass. Aroma of chocolate, mild herbal notes and an ashy note. The taste is chocolate, mild roast, and a mild hop finish. Medium bodied. Not a bad beer, not a good experience.

Growler shared by Gene at RBWG 2014 Grand Tasting, thanks! Pours a clear brown with an amber hue and a gray head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light roast note, with dark grains and a hint of dark fruits. Flavor is a touch thin but grows to have roasted malts and dark grains.
