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

Poured a bomb, I hope the other 5 aren’t this way. A beautiful dark chocolate aroma and black licorice hint comes through. Great taste but I think this needs to sit a bit and be revisited in a few months. The palate is great but again, with time, this would be awesome. With a little tweaking, this could be up there with Bells Expedition Stout

The idea for this beer germinated way back in 2003 when the three guys (Sam from Dogfish, Greg from Stone and Bill from Victory) formed the BUFF alliance (Brewers United for Freedom of Flavor) - a noble endeavor with the goal to highlight the passion and camaraderie of the American craft brew movement. So, BUFF didn’t really do anything (beyond talk a lot of talk) until 2010 when the three brewers finally got together to jointly brew at beer at the Stone Brewery. Saison du BUFF will first be brewed at Stone and then replicated at each of the other two breweries - same recipe, same ingredients, three different breweries throughout 2010.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a very dark amber with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is roast and cocoa malt. Medium body, light roast, cocoa, dry finish, good.

weitz15 (581) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Dark brown pour, tan head. Mild coffee presence, roasted malts, and a lightly carbonated finish.

3.4
kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small tight bubbled brown head. The nose is rich and chocolaty with a slight molasses like sweetness. Some roast, burnt caramel, and a bit of hops. The flavor is a balance between the molasses like sweetness and the bitter roastiness. Some light hoppiness on the finish. Lingering licorice and molassas finish. Medium bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation. Decent Porter.

Thechasm442 (1005) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2016
Bottle pour. WAY over carbonated. I had to dump an ounce and than did a 20 second pour which yielded 50% head. The beer was a dark brien with a khaki head that was ridiculous of course. Aroma is smoked malts, coffee, and cocoa. A little oak too. Taste is dark malts, coffee, and some bitter chocolate flavors. Mostly I taste fizz as the carbonation is way too high. Meh, I’d like to try a better bottle.

ByTheirLimpin (321) - New York, USA - APR 15, 2016
Bottle. Slight coffee head. Palate teases to chocolate, slips back to a light coffee char note. Probably a little too cold. Decent sluggable porter, but nothing to write home about.

3.6
Dorkenstein (542) - - APR 12, 2016
Tootsie roll aroma, some roast in there too. Taste is espresso, tootsie rolls, light caramel. It has a nice dry finish with some sharp grassy hops.

3.2
csaso (2284) - Missouri, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle - small foamy head, almost black color, moderate roasty malt aroma and flavor, some definite chocolate notes come through in the flavor, fair hop balance, pretty good overall
