A: Dark black with a brown head that makes a brief appearance and then coats the sides of the glass.
S: Nice roasted malt-coffee combination. A little oats/earthiness. Reminds me a little of hot cocoa. Definitely the strength of this beer.
T: Not near as much coffee as you would expect from the smell. Roasted malt is the primary flavor, but beyond that doesn't seem to be packing a whole lot else. Not much in the way of sweetness, and the finish is a little dry and rather abrupt for the style. Needs more coffee if you're going to slap a Dunn Bros. logo on the label.
M: Somewhat thin with full carbonation (not smooth). More of a porter feel than stout. Could use more oats.
Overall, not bad, but pretty much on par with the other three Flat Earth beers I have tried - on the light side. Here's hoping these guys decide to ratchet things up a bit in the flavor department.

Thanks to haveanother1 for sending this over via trade.
A: Opaque black with 3 fingers width of bubble tan colored head. Bubbles settle and it becomes a dense 1 finger width that has great retention. Leaves a sheet of lacing down the side of the glass.
S: Oatmeal and lactose like heavy cream, a bit herbaceous, subtle coffee and chocolate.
T: Roasty and grassy/herbaceous. Oatmeal, a more pronounced coffee than was present in the aroma, lactose and a subtle semi-sweet bakers chocolate.
M/D: Nice smoothness, mouthfeel on the lighter side, carbonation moderate, drinkability is average.
O: Solid brew, nothing spectacular, but a nice Sunday morning beer to get my homebrew day started.
