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.

Acceptable aroma: roasty, coffee, a little sour. The appearance is dark brown/black, decent head. Flavor starts out sweet, then a noticable burnt roastiness. Finally, there is a wierd sourness to it. The finish lingers, but it has a strange sour milk quality. The mouthfeel is on the thick side. OK porter, not the best by any means.

jerohen (2169) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2007
Bottled. Black coloured, brown head. Malts and liquorice in aroma. Initially sweet flavour, which becomes quite bitter towards the end. Quite thin mouthfeel. Not very impressed by this one.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with a long lasting tan head that is fed by a stream of carbonation bubbles. Very nice aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor is less distinctive than the aroma with some roasted malt and a bit of chocolate follwed by some hops bitterness. Somewhat bitter and a bit dry at the finish. An ok porter.
