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.

kepano (247) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Poured a sinister brown hue enveloped in a spongy tan foam, Left Hand’s Porter makes little effort to impress through any sensory evaluation. The scent is dusty and sterile, with a noticeable saponaceous background and a stinging mixture of lemon and haystacks. Roasted coffee, chocolate and licorice are ransomed by the asceptic and hesitant ensemble. The palate seems equally gauche, blending what seems a fitting array of flavors though it unfortunately carries no unity and originality. Chocolate, coffee and soil are laced in a smoky ribbon revealing merely a drab and muted product of little worth. Black Jack Porter does not offend but its dispassionateness is utterly unsatisfying.
