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.

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 can’t 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.

i thought that this beer was overly sweet, i didn’t expect a lot, but was still a little disapointed.....not a beer to seek out.

Light brown with a deep red pantina. Thin film of light tan head. Chocolate aroma with mild coffee. High residual sweetness with bittersweet chocolate and tinges of floral hops, particularly in the finish where they meet a richer chocolate vestige. Mouthfeel is medium light.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a dissipating head. Typical porter aroma, focused on chocolate malt. The flavor is bitter chocolate malts and almonds, especially in the finish. My only complaint is that it could be more full-bodied, but certainly still a decent beer.

My first and sustaining thought with this beer is that it smells like molasses and barleywines. Excellent. It tastes much more more like a barleywine than a porter to me too - but that’s certainly okay in my book. It would be truly great if it made the commitment and went all the way.

NachlamSie (2810) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2005
bottle. This is a deep, deep dark red with a fast fading tan head. The aroma is a typical porter: roasted coffee, dark chocolate. Good flavor, there’s some tasty nuttiness and a good sweet finish.

Pailhead (5097) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of Indiana_Red via trade. Lots of chocolate in the aroma with some caramel, roasted grain, and light nuttiness. Pours a reddish-brown with a decent amount of transparency when held to the light. Small off-white head fades quickly. Very malty. Lots of chocolate from start to finish. Light roasted grain and nuts in the finish with the hops extremely light. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel, but a tad fizzy.
