I've had this porter a few times. I still think this is the best porter I've ever had. Nothing fancy in it and not much complexity. I'd say this is an incredibly simple tasting beer. It is just right, you can keep drinking them if you can afford the $3 a 12oz bottle TotalWine charges for them.
This is not the beer to sip. Its a true English Porter. Drink 1, 2, and 3, wait a bit, then repeat process.

Original Flag Porter has a medium, soapy, beige head, a very dark brown appearance, with lighter brown highlights, some streaming bubbles, and bubbles stuck to the glass, and a small amount of thin lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet brown bread, roasted malt, and light cream. Taste is of the same, with faint bitterness and bread crust. Mouthfeel is light and rather watery, and Original Flag Porter finishes mostly dry, soft, refreshing, and ultra drinkable. Overall, this is a really nice thing to check out. Get some!

Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass, served cool.
Reddish brown with a thick khaki head that recedes briskly. tatters of lacing.
aroma of coffee, toasted grains and herbal hops.
mouthfeel is soft, like so many fine English ales.
taste; toasted malts with balanced bitterness and a nice but subtle chocolate raisin finish. As the beer warms the chocolate raisin flavor increases.
notes; lighter in color than any other porter I have had. No smoke flavor maybe there are no roasted malts here only toasted. Overall this is a pleasant tasting beer, lacking in complexity.
