COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional London style beer, our Black Jack Porter highlights chocolate malt and Kent Goldings hops. Its slight initial sweetness quickly yields to the distinctive roastiness of the chocolate malt. The Kent Goldings hops perfectly balance the malt, making it very smooth, with a surprisingly clean finish.

Best by 03/21/15 This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a nice looking dark brown close to black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer. The smell started off with some sweet to roasty coffee to cocoa. Light dark sweet fruitiness rounds it all out. The taste was mainly sweet with a big underscore of the bitter to roasty on the aftertaste and leading into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light allowing a decent stickiness all around. Overall, I say this was a pretty good English Porter that I would have again.

(bottle) clear deep amber-brown colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of hazelnuts and roasted malts, with a light hint of bran flakes, filter coffee and sugar icing. flavour is mostly roasted malts, dark chocolate and bread dough, slightly musty, with big notes of booze and herbal hops in the medium roasted-bitter finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

La Black Jack è di colore marrone scuro, con innegabili riflessi rosso rubino; la schiuma è fine, beige, non molto persistente. Il naso invece colpisce per equilibrio (come da parola d’ordine del birrificio), eleganza e sostanza, caratterizzato com’è da tutte le sfumature del caffè e del cacao. In bocca è molto rotonda, dalla carbonazione sufficientemente caratterizzata, che lascia velocemente spazio ad una degustazione tranquilla e calibrata. Non stucchevolmente tostata nè pericolosamente abboccata, regala il meglio di sè nel finale, asciutto, delicato e pulito, con il caffè, il tostato e il cioccolato che restano a lungo sul palato.

Cola colored beer with a late forming small beige head. Rich nose of cocoa powder, sarsaparilla, and brown sugar. Flavor is a pleasant mix of unsweetened bitter chocolate, molasses, and lightly charred bread. A good blend of sweet and bitter, this is a solid porter.

12 oz bottle poured. Pours brown with a lasting fizz head. Grainy, roasted malt aroma. Flavor is a big chocolate kick up front, with some toast, and a sweet background. Subtle hops come in late. Very tasty, balanced porter. I’ll totally drink this again.

DocJitsu (1559) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Pours a dark red-brown with a very quickly dissipating light tan head. Roasted malt and nutty aromas. Smooth, full mouthfeel. Roasted malt, some coffee, and a bit of a nutty quality in the flavors.

jbruner (3780) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Pours a deep brownish black from the bottle with dissipating tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma of slight roast and dark chocolate, muted but nice. Taste follows, earthy back end and a mild bitterness. Well done porter, soft carbonation, great for the style, but nothing exciting.

Dark brown color white head fades and leaves ring. Roasty aroma with chocolate present. Medium body, creamy feel. Rather pleasant palate. Flavor follows the nose with a roasty chocolate taste. Overall solid.
