Last can of a 4 pack, canned on 11/2/17. Probably my favorite beer from Flat Earth, finally getting around to a review.
A-Poured into a proper pint glass, this brew has 2 fingers of a beige head atop a dark brown/black brew that allows light to pass through.
S-Pleasant malt aromas of chocolate and lightly roasted coffee with a grainy sweetness.
T-Fairly strong roasted malt flavor.
M-Fairly soft mouthfeel, a bit of an acrid finish.
O-Decent, easy drinking porter.

16 oz can of this English style porter poured near black and near opaque with a good head. The roasty flavor is good but not up to the level of the very appealing aroma. Tasting does bring out some light smoke that adds to the dry finish. Suggestions of black coffee here rather than the toffee that's apparent in the nose.

16oz can with a date on the bottom

Very dark amber-brown with a tiny ring of foam. Smell is all smoked malts. The flavor is smoked chocolate grains over a light touch of bitter hops. It is smooth and thick, but leaves a slick oil on the tongue and the flavor sticks around.

Crushable, flavorful porter. Cheap, too
