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.

Miksu (5039) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2007
12 oz bottle. Red-black color with small but persistent head. Sweetish and mellow aroma with coffee, chocolade and leather. Mellow, sweetish and milky flavor with mild roastedness (coffee, chocolade) and mild bitterness. soft and milky palate. Mellow with no edge.

Stine (1745) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2007
On tap at the Happy Gnome. Cola-ish in appearance, deep brown but almost transparent. Aroma is like ’black cherry’ cola with cream, and weirdly fishy. I taste black olive, prune, and oyster in this...interesting, but not in a winning way, quite. Mildly berry-ish finish that is generically thin and hollow. Not enough roast in this, or chocolate, or nutty flavor...it’s a decent beer, but not a decent porter.

guzzler67 (1647) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2006
Deep brown appearance with a small tan head and light lacing. Roasted malt aroma; hints of caramel and bittersweet chocolate. Moderately sweet, lactose-like taste, along with some nuttiness. Light to medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel, but the palate was a bit too thin. Short lived, non- descript finish.

WSSmiles (124) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2006 Bottle poured a nice dark body with an almond color head. Very porter looking. The aroma was a smokey almost citris tone. Palate was actually very full. Flavor was very good until the end which was very smokey like. After drinking it I felt like I was around a camp fire all night. I would disagree with "a surprisingly clean finish" as the commerical description says. However I must say a very fine beer to get u in a loopy state quickly.

Lowe1983 (1480) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2006
Pours a dark brown color with a brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malts, and dark fruits. Starts off with the fruit flavors that give way to the chocolate and roasted malts. Slight bitterness and smokiness on the finish on this one. An okay porter but nothing special.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Pours midnight brown w/ a medium sized semi creamy froth. Froth reduces at a moderate pace leaving a full dusty canopy w/ complete lacing. Aromas of roasted cocoa. A flavorful version w/ a perfect roast to fruity malt ratio. Bakers cocoa, leather, slight tobacco, and chocolate covered cherries. Finish is bittered nicely and hangs around for a while and barely reveals a sour tickle. Overall: I could drink this one all night. One tastey brew.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2006
On tap at brewpub. Chocolate and roasted malt aroma....Creamy chocolate and coffee taste is decent...not the best porter, but not the worst either. Worth trying.

(Bottle) Pours a dark mahogany body with a moderate tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee, chocolate, and caramel. Flavor of roasted malt, coffee, licorice, and chocolate with a dry finish.

excellent porter, maybe one of my favorites. Very smooth, but with the sharp bitterness you want from a porter.
