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.

Bottle Clear and very light color for the style. Looked more like a brown ale. Small off white head and only spotty lacing. Dark roast aromsa and a slightly sour hint. Thin feel but smooth and plenty of woody roasted flavors. Aftertaste was of old campfires. Not bad

Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Poured dark like coffee, had a good off white head, that eventually left good lacing. Nose is coffee and licorice. The initialy taste is cola and heavy carbination. After warming it in my hand for a while, it was still more like a soda, but not in an awful way. Enjoyable. Bit watery, but This is not an Impy. Thanks Suttree!

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2005
12 oz bottle - received in a trade with Indiana_Red - Thanks Ken! - Pours dark brown with ruby highlights with a short tan head that laces well. Aroma is of light chocolate and a touch of nuts. Flavor is chocolatey but a really odd finish. Almost a nutty aftertaste. Palate is watery. Almost buttery slick. Drinkable but not what I expect in a good porter.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2005
08.16.05 12oz bottle. Dark stained walnut with no head. Well, there was a momentary uprising like a cola fizz of head that vanishes as quickly as it appears. Aroma is soft and sweet with slight roasted nuts and maple. Chocolate malts really come through in the flavor, spread on a slick of woody oils and tingly eff. This stuff sounds better than it is. Really, itís an average porter but lacking in any bitterness until itís an afterthought. The alcohol is a bit too present. Itís not a labor to drink it, but Iím glad I only got one bottle.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2005
Bottle. Pours a clear medium dark red with a quickly dissipating white head and some lacing. Nice chocolate, roast and slightly buttery nose. Large chocolate notes with hints of butter, and toffee. Smooth finish. Very drinkable porter.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Bottle: Dark mahogany, crimson through the light, a lighter porter with tan thin head and light lacing. Nose is smoky, lightly oaky and hints of vanilla; literally: some special B, chocolate malt and dark caramel malt. The flavor is tannic, mild alcohol and a dry chocolate lingering in the mouth. The tail is lightly bitter and fruity less remeniscent of the driness.

Braudog (5894) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Deep forest brown with a firm creamy head. Aroma of caramel and wood. Sharp woodsy bitterness carries well with a ashen piney flavor. Quite good.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Bottle. Pours with average fizzy light brown head that disapears to nothing. Fair lacing and clear dark amber body with hints of red. Aroma is heavy malt, cookie, molasses, caramel, nutty, coffee. Light to average hops, pine and resin. Also, some light soy sauce and pepper. Medium body with thin and oily texture. Flat carbonation. Flavor is average in duration while being moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Good stuff. Kind of light with a decent finish.

<bBottle: Shared this one with Indiana_Red and his dad. His dad owns a small airplane and flew over three boxes of Colorado brews! So, fresh from the Rocky Mountain highs . . . anyway, I enjoyed this porter. Light brown head with dark color. It seemed creamier than most Porters I have tried which I enjoyed. Smoky tastes and chocolate aromas. Not bad.

piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 2, 2005
Black in colour with muted aromas of roasted nuts and a touch of chocolate. The flavor was far less sweet than I had expected. The roasted grain chalkiness was the dominant flavor. Little hop presence to speak of. Perhaps this was an old bottle.
