Format the Description field of an ADO Work Item

I am trying to use information from a MS Form to fill in the Description field of an Azure DevOps work item. However, I am not able to format the Description field, even to add simple line breaks. 

 

What I have in the Flow:

Flow ADO Description.png

What it creates in ADO:

ADO Description output.png

 

I've tried adding the <br/> and/or /n to the flow but this prints in the Description field. 

 

Any suggestions?
