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.

Whew, Iíd say this oneís underrated. The best plain ole porter Iíve had in a long time. Full of milk thickness, chocolate sweetness, coffee roastedness, and that indefinable porter tang. Rich, sweet, medium-thick/sticky mouthfeel. Really, I enjoyed this too much to make a proper rating, so let this stand as a placeholder until I get another bottle and describe it properly.

Nearly opaque ruby/brown, light tan head. Roasted coffee, caramel, and faint floral hop aroma. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, and sweet malt. Chewy, surprisingly full mouthfeel. Sweetness lasts well into the finish, although the hops eventually balance it off with barely enough bitterness. A quality, drinkable porter.

Pours a nice brown head, but doesnít drink as smoothly as it pours. Has some nice subtle roasted flavors, but leaves more to be desired and has a bit of a tangy aftertaste. Still a good beer to try.

Bottle, pint glass. Thin, quickly dissapating head, maybe a little darker than you would expect for the style. Starts out a little thin, then the chocalte comes in with a very balanced hop profile. Finishes real smooth, taste fades quickly.

Really one of the best porters Iíve ever had. Thick and dark, a good beer to sip on, and a great example of the porter style. Good body with malts very prevalent in the flavor and finish.

Pour is a very dark black with no head. Aroma is very chocolatey and rich. Flavor is more of a coffee and dark cocao rich. Over all its ok for the style I canít say its really bad of god but middle of the road.

Mmm, tasty. Very dark, nice beige head. Chocolatey and dark roast coffee dominated. I could drink a lot of this. Kind of smoky and sweet.

12oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown with a very small tan head. Quite light in color for a porter. Aroma is chocolate and dark roasted malt. Sweet chocolate malt flavor with some hop bitterness on the finish. Somewhat metallic aftertaste.
