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.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Nearly perfect. Smooth and creamy, with just the right amount of sweetness. Just a hint of bitterness on the finish.

MacBoost (1333) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle via me. High five to myself! Pours a very dark brown with a scant tan head that fades to a lacing within a minute or two. Aromas of coffee, roasted barley and dirty Englishman returning home after fishing the wharf all day. Those blimey biscuit eating bilge rats! Taste is semi sweet with a bitterness derived from the roast, not the hops. Flavors of dark cock sauce, coffee, dirty english man-ass. Really relaxing and enjoying. Plenty of flavor packed into this little brew. Roast, coffee, caramel, circumcised english cock. Pretty nice.

Aroma: chocolate, roasty, coffee Appearance: black, cloudy, frothy Taste: light sweetness, roast, slight chocolate and espresso Palate: full body, creamy, average carbonation, long finish Good quality porter. has many of the characteristics i’d look for, yet still maintaining a good safe taste. Classic Left Hand feel.

bubbleflubber (1832) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2014
This pours almost opaque Mahogany with the deepest of walnut fringes. The head fully diminishes, leaving a thin ring of suds down the glass and trace lacing. The nose is of chocolate and coffee, slightly roasted. Sweet dark malt upfront, dark chocolate and some grains hitting the mid-palate, and finishing clean with a perfectly balanced bittering hop. The medium–full body goes down very smoothly, with a round mouthfeel and slick down the palate. Great complexity and substance in a highly drinkable porter. Very nice!

MrGreen (2) - Missouri, USA - JUL 7, 2014 does not count
Bottle. Cola-like appearance, weak head. Roasty, slightly chocolaty aroma. Bland taste, somewhat dry mouthfeel. Not great.

JStax (3106) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle pour. Pours a dark brown to black with a khaki colored head of foam. Good retention. The aroma is nicely roasty and sweet. I get hints at coffee and vanilla beans. The taste is rich and roasty. Medium mouthfeel with low to medium carbonation. I liked this beer a lot more than I expected to. Very good.
