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.

Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Poured into a snifter at home. Jet black with a one finger tan head. Head lasted a few minutes. Little lacing. Kept a slight crown. The aroma was nice with chocolate nibs, vanilla, roasted nuts and roasted malts. The taste didn’t quite match the complexity of the aroma but indeed was good. Chocolate and marshmallow yielded to the dry roasted malts. Balanced well. Snappy clean finish with a rather bland ending. Medium body for a porter. Overall it was fine.

Bottle @ home thx to Ansjelaah. Dark brown to black colour with a medium sized beige head. Smells chocolate, roasty, sweet, chocolate milk, nice. Tastes roasty, sweet, some coffee, dark chocolate, a hint of berries and red fruits. Aftertaste is mostly chocolate. Medium body with nice active carbo. Could use more body, but I’ll accept that it’s a porter; not a RIS.

Jamedra (384) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 14, 2013
Láhev 355 ml. Má opravdu příjemné sladové aroma s karamelovým nádechem. Pěna je nahnědlé barvy, středně vysoká, jemná nedržící. Barva samotného piva je tmavě hnědá, lehce do rubínova. Chuť má příjemný nasládlý střed s nádechem hořké čokolády a karamelu, okraje jsou lehce kávově a finiš je silně kávově hořký a držící.

I must have gotten a bad bottle. Pours with almost no head, literally a pencil line thin layer leaving no lace on the glass. I get the claims of espresso. The chocolate in the aroma but no hint in the flavor.

Bottled. Dark brown pour with a light tan head. The aroma is pretty malty and sweet. The taste is strong chocolate/ espresso with a light hop note. Overall pretty full bodied and a malty finish. B
