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.

A good all-around porter. Not too heavy, not too strong. Has a dark brown-near black color. Tastes of malts, slight coffee, bits of caramel. Good carbonation and head. One of my favorite "budget saver" porters out there.

MichaelAwesome (5559) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 6, 2015
Absolut in Ordnung, ohne dabei in irgendeiner Form aussergewoehnlich zu sein. Trocken, knackig, sueffig, dabei jedoch recht dunkel, bitter und roestig. Nicht ganz mein Ding, aber absolute Qualitaetsware.

McTapps (5574) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - APR 4, 2015
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a deep black colour with an airy but steady head and medium body. Aroma of malt and roast. Taste of roasted malt, torf, dark bread, stroong coffee, leather and earth. Dry and roasty finish. Easy drinkable and solid in its style, yet nothing very spectacular.

sudomorph (893) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours a deep, dark caramel with a thin, off white head. Aroma has notes of caramel, mild dark chocolate, and hints of coffee. Taste is a balanced bitter. Roasty malts, caramel, dark fruits, dark chocolate, and an espresso bitterness at the end. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall a really nice porter. Dark chocolate, dark fruits, caramel, and coffee at the end.

Pours dark ruby brown with shortlived tan head. Aromas of chocolate and roasted malts, treacle. Thick and oily in the mouth, sweet flavours of treacle, coffee, roasted malts. Not much bitterness. Nice alcohol warmth considering the ABV. Nice Porter, but maybe a bit on the cloying side for me.

Three words: not black enough! I understand its maybe designed to be a smooth-drinking porter, but I just expect all stouts & porters to be about as dark as a beer can get, visibly speaking. Flavors are nice, smells good as well, with roasty notes, yet little or no smoky characteristics sometimes found in this variety.

Clear ruby brown with khaki head. Dark chocolate, cocoa, mild coffer and a hint of licorice all stand out. Medium body. Semi sweet. Mild roast. No bitterness. Very good.
