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.

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.

Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted chocolate malts. The flavor is sweet, roast, chocolate, a little thin in body, but still preety good.

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

This porter pours a murky black color with a frothy, light brown head. Fair lacing follows a mostly diminishing head. Aroma is of heavy burnt malts. Initial taste is lightly sweet, with a burst of moderate sweetness at the finish with a long duration. Medium body on the mouth, it has a nice creamy finish. Reviewed on July 13th, 2006.

Pours a deep reddish hue with brown highlights. Smells of cocoa powder which transitions nicely to a creamy coffe aroma. A deeply roasted malty smell complements the sweetness of the nose. The flavor begins with sweet chocolaty flavors. This gives way to roasted coffee and nuts. A good hop profile at the finish balances this brew out. Medium bodied but too thin on the palate for the style. The palate falls short of supporting the sweetness. Overall the flavors are pleasantly sweet and balanced well with the hop bitterness. Could use some more girth on the palate but still a decent porter with good drinkability.

Draft at the brewery. .. Roasty aroma, sweet hints . .. . Rich brown, tall tan head, clear - ruby hints. .. Malty up front, roasty. Thin aftertaste. .. Medium Lt body, light carbonation. Good porter, straightforward. Not super-duper, but tasty. ..

Pours a deep brown that is basically black unless you hold it up to the light. Half an inch of creamy tan foam. Okay head retention and lacing. Very mild roasted grain in the aroma, but not showing me much. Starts with a mild sweet flavor - light chocolate, light maple, light roasted grain, and lightly hopped to balance. Behind this, there is yesterday’s coffee flavor. Though it is often a life-saver, I don’t much like yesterday’s coffee when I am drinking it as coffee, but I am okay with the taste when I experience it in a beer. It should not be the most memorable flavor, however this time it was. Smooth enough and drinkable, gently carbonated.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2007
Black colored, medium sized beige head. Rich aroma with sweet roastiness, chocolate, caramel and even some oaky vanilla in there. Medium bodied. Flavor is more hopped with sweet roastiness and caramel. Bittersweet aftertaste with some biting hops and berries. Creamy palate. Easy to drinki porter, still very enjoyable.
