A - Pour was very dark with a good sized tax head the dissapated relatively quickly leaving light lacing on the glass.

S - Was not very aromatic although I could faintly detect some coffee maltiness.

T - While I am not a frequent drinker of porters, I found this one to be good. Initially taste was very smooth with coffee flavors coming on stronger after the initial taste together with hints of chocalate/licorice giving it an almost cola-like profile. Aftertaste was slight and was reminiscent of expresso. Not bitter but the bitterness present was that of a good dark or marble rye bread. Very tasty.

M - Body was light-medium. Carbonation seemed a little low but probably due to being poured from a two-day old growler.

D - The overall effect of the smooth taste and the unexpected light-medium body made this porter very drinkable.

Conclusion - Don't pass up a chance to try this porter. I think porter fans will appreciate its coffee/chocolate characteristics and more casual porter drinkers will find it very approachable. Very good on its own and would probably pair well with a hearty stew, a roast or possibly a chowder.

One of the launch beers at the new Flat 12 brewery in Indianapolis.

I am a fan of porters, and I would have to say that of the four Flat 12 beers I've had so far, I think this one is their best. It's a good, classic porter. The appearance is a very dark brown; smell is malty and roasty without too much coffee notes; the taste is smooth with hints of roasted malt, chocolate and malt sweetness. The whole time it is very balanced and drinkable with a nice finish. Very good.
