what a beauty! big brown head on this dark, chocolately porter. this is going to be my winter beer of choice. this pours perfectly and drinks even better. just a little bit of froth on the mustache for movember. not too filling like other porters i've had.

Great Porter.

A: Great dark appearance with nice lacing.

S: I agree with others that coffee is a noticed but not overpowering. Not the most pungent porter but it is nice on the nose.

T: By far one of the best porters I have tasted in Indiana.

M: balanced. not heavy but not light. just the way a porter should feel.

D: Low carb. which leads to a smooth drink.

Visited Flat 12 today and was thoroughly impressed!

A:Very dark with a nice tan head that lingered nicely with great lacing.

S:Malty, very chocolaty, a little bit of coffee.

T:First thing I tasted was chocolate awesomeness! Probably the best chocolate taste I have had in a porter.

M:Not too heavy and great carb, awesome!

O:Definitely try this one if you like porters at all or if you want to expand your tastes!

Pours dark brown to black with a ridiculously creamy 2 fingers of head leaving excellent lacing and retention.

Smells of roasted coffee, chocolate and a little bit of sweet maltiness.

Taste is similar. Lots of roast and this one is on the dryer roastier side for porters which I prefer. Some chocolate as well ending with a light bitterness.

Very creamy mouthfeel with a medium carbonation level.

Great local beer and a good go to that can be easily found on the shelves. Very glad they started bottling. This is probably one of the best "normal" porters I've had.
