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.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Deep burgundy pour with no head. Aroma is fainly roasty and wet though too restrained. A bit thin in the mouth, with the taste being too sweet and not at all roasty enough. Slightly oxidized.

Ughsmash (7387) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2006
Bottled on 10/5/05. Poured a medium burgundy/cola brown with a 1" cap of caramelly-beige head. Nose picked up quite a bit of lightly-roasted chocolate malt and mousse... but there was something going on that wasn’t too enjoyable. Flavor was of pretty much the same stuff... sweeter, roasty chocolate malts, some caramel, floral hoppage, and unidentified candy-like sweetness. Smooth, but not memorable on the palate. Roasty chocolate and the faintest bitterness at the finish. Just OK.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 27, 2006
Bottle. Ruby colour with a big beige head. Light roasted caramel malty, light hoppy aroma and taste. Medium body with a light dry finish.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
Black with a small tan head. Average for a porter in many ways ... no great intensity or complexity, but drinkable balance of chocolate malts and sweetness, with classic British hops to provide some ibtterness.

Ungstrup (30818) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 23, 2006
A red-brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel, as well as lighter notes of hops and roasted malt. The flavor is dry and quite roasted, as hard roasted malt. An OK beer.

joergen (23883) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 23, 2006
Bottle. Clear brown coloured with a beige head. Light roasted aroma with notes of malts and caramel. Flavour of malts, caramel, grass and hops.

KSS (102) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 10, 2006
Bottle. Clear dark brown in color with a spare tan head. The only downside is a slight mild cheese aroma mixed with roasted malt. But otherwise this is a nice solid porter.

jimmyh221 (157) - Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2006
It had a nice dark brown color with a spare head. It had a nice smooth chocholate taste that was very balanced with a nice finish.

kramer (5395) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2006
12 oz bottle, via nolankowal. Pours a clear dark brown with a small light brown head that fades to a thin covering quickly. Standard Porter aroma, heavy on the chocolate malt with a nice roasted malt accent. Fairly dry with some coffee as well. Flavor follows aroma in step, chocolate and roast with moderate bitterness, a little burnt astringency, and a dry chalky finish. Medium bodied with a moderate fine bubbled carbonation. A decent Porter, certainly drinkable.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2006
Bottle. Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma of chocolate, creme, with some mustyness. Typical roasted malt and chocolate flavors. There is an unpleasant flavor in the finish that I can’t figure out. This tastes like something made from an extract homebrew kit. Not very exciting
