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.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 Damn this is a good porter. Pours a clear dark, ruby red with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Nice roasted malt taste with some chocolate notes as well. Goes down smooth with a bit of a nutty flavor. Man, this is good.

Ottima porter tradizionale in puro stile inglese, con note di caffé e di cioccolato bilanciate da un retrogusto amaro molto piacevole. La mano sinistra nasconde nel palmo chicche niente male.

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

zimbo (526) - 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.
