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.

Unusual flavor of flouride and chickory and water. It was like they infused kent goldings hops with some watery old coffee. Not a repeat beer.

this was a very tasty porter from a brewery that has yet to disappoint. chocolate and roast are evident here, some light head to this medium dark beer.

12 oz brown bottle dated 12/06. In the glass it is very dark brown and nearly opaque. Has an off white light tannish brown head that immediately fades to ring around the inside of the glass. Pop the lid and you get a pleasant beery uncooked rising bread dough yeasty aroma, with some chocolate milk mixed in. Very nice impressionable smell turn primarily into chocolate milk once it is poured into the glass. Medium low fiss carbonation that is friendly and easy to appreciate. Chocolate smell continues with the first tastes. The chocolates fade to an interesting roastyness that is welcomed. Finish is building mild to medium roasty malt bitterness that is well controlled. Overall a good example of a decent dark beer. The finish could be a little more mannered but that thought leaves my head after a few minutes. The chocolate aromas continue strong up to the very end.

This beer poured a very dark brown and had a medium light tan head. The aroma was a strong hazelnut. the taste was a nice caramel chocolate, one of the best porters i have tried

I had to hit the century mark with a special beer. I know this one doesn’t get the highest rating, but it is one of the smoothest and well-balanced brews I’ve encountered. In addition I love the roasted aroma accomanpied with that smooth sweet chocolate taste. Man I really like this one.

12 oz bottle with a bottling date of 04/20/05. Didn’t notice how old this was until I got it home (typical ‘wanna be’ a beer geek maneuver). Poured hazy dark brown with zero head. The aroma is assertive with sweet molasses soaked dark fruit, toffee, roasted malts and some grainy malts. The taste is like a weaker version of the Rogue Imperial Stout. I get dark fruit, molasses and toffee. The porter like roasted and burnt malts taste like they’ve been muted with age. Still tasty though. In the aftertaste I notice that some chocolate joins in with the rest of the dark fruit and sweet molasses notes.

Looks nice. Medium dark pour with medium to small head. Tastes a little malty but not much. A bit too carbonated to rate tops but still quite drinkable.

Clear dark chestnut color with a medium beige head. Roasty and fruity aroma. Notes of caramel and some cereal grain and notes of chocolate. Roasted flavor with chocolate. Dry finish. Light to medium bodied.

This one starts with a good pour and nice typical porter aroma. However, there is something dry and thin bodied about it that keeps it from being really satisfying; decent but boring.
