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 26, 2007 Ft. Myers, Fl. - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Dark ruby red to brown pour with a fluffy mocha colored head. Good sweet chocolatey aroma with some earthy notes. Solid porter flavor with good bitter chocolate notes, a hint of dirt and a bit of day old coffee. Mouthfeel is tongue coating, thick and nice. Solid Porter.

This beer didnít do much for me. It had a fair amount of roasted malt character, but also had an odd vegetable taste that seemed out of place. Not a beer Iíd recommend, given the great number of porters in the world. Color was an opaque black with abundant head. Aroma was a lightly sweet roastiness. Flavor was a muted roastiness, with an aforementioned vegetable taste I didnít really enjoy. Mouthfeel was unremarkable. All-in-all, I wouldn not recommend this beer.

This brew made me want to brew a porter. Great roasted chocolate flavor, and slight sweetness make this a great beer.

Very roasty london porter...dark roast grain, chocolate, coffee grounds, caramel and a touch of smoke in the finish. A bit thin-bodied, a detraction, but not terribly objectionable. Another fine offering from these guys.

JK (5625) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2007
A thin, flavorless porter. Very little aroma at all; just a hint of roasted grains. Flavor has more roast but overall this is very light in every way, including the light brown color.

Black Jack porter pours such a dark brown that itís almost black. It has a small amount of deminishing head, with a little bit of lacing. Overall itís an OK porter.
