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.

Really nice traditional porter with chocolate, vanilla and roasted coffee notes, leaning more bitter than sweet.

zimbo (482) - SCOTLAND - DEC 29, 2013
Somewhere between a rebooted HP Lovecraft’s Cthulhu and a damp squid, the illustration on the label gives a pretty bad first impression. Nice medium richish smell of mocha and coffee. Dark cola appearance. Fleshy one inch magnolia head. Taste is earthy, somewhat dry with a degree of metallic (?) chocolate. Limited in development and complexity it lacks that delicious morish quality you find in better porter.

Botella de 33 cl en el Lupulo. Agosto de 2012. Una porter algo suave de cuerpo con sabores tostados y algo de chocolate ligeros. Normal. Sin grandes sobresaltos

rand (1220) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle 355 ml from La Cave du Haut Jura - St Laurent-en-Grandvaux (F). Classic Porter with notes of chocolate, fruity of raisin, molasses, violet. The taste is roasted with similar choc, fruity of berries, hints of tea. Perfect balance with the fine bitterness of hop.

Frozer (84) - Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Poured from a bottle. Not much head. Coffee and chocolate aroma, not strong but present. Chocolatey with a coffee flavor on the aftertaste. Light bodied and sessionable.

Fashawn (47) - Montesarchio, ITALY - DEC 1, 2013
Birra tra il rosso e marrone, con una schiuma marrone lievemente più chiaro, cremosa ma fine e non troppo persistente. Aroma di caramello, di tostato e di malti, e lo stesso sapore non tradisce : affumicato, cioccolata fondente, caramello. Birra che non sfigura.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with not much of a head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Taste is moderate bitter and light sweet. Nothing too special, just a decent porter. Medium body with average carbonation.
