Pours a huge, dense, frothy, tan head that has great persistence. Nice, toasted malt aroma. Black. Starts acidic with big notes of coffee and toasted malt. Moves into a surprising medium bitterness. Lingering citrus hops come through the toasted malt.

This isn't too bad. Very roasty with a nice hop bitterness. SUPER carbonated.

One of my favorite porters. I prefer stouts and this has the roasted smell of a stout with the feel of a porter.
Looks very dark with a of dark red in the light of the edges. Smells like a stout , roasted malts, a bit of cocoa, tastes like someone poured half porter and half stout into a glass , not a bad thing to me.
I really like this porter and I would have rated it higher but it is really carbonated a lot.
Head huge without an agressive pour. Best Flat 12 beer I have tried and I buy on a regular basis. My go to winter porter.

I do not really care for flat 12 beers, but this is an exception. I had this a couple times a enjoyed it. Even turned it into a beer float!
