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.

Roasted, Malty nose, pours black with tan head, it is somewhat translucent, a trait I would not expect from most porters. Tastes Malty, hint caramel. Tastes much like it smells. Rather light and and kind of fizzy for a porter. Sweet finish. I think this is a nice begginer beer for someone just wanting to dable a bit in dark style beers. Its decent but for fans of the more complex, best to leave this one on the shelf.

wimpyjoe (4915) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Keg @ Victorian Craft Beer Cafe, Halifax. Dark amber-brown with a very thin head. Has a light but decent roasted malt aroma and taste with a hint of chocolate in the latter aspect. Very easy drinking for its strength and there’s a fair dark malt sweetness evident throughout its character.

fezzy (91) - California, USA - JAN 28, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2015 Nose has a surprising amount of licorice, along with bitter cacao, coffee, and nutty malt. The licorice turns to balancing aromatic hop on the palate, along with plenty of cocoa, some coffee, and nutty and roasty malts. Nice hopping (earthy and mellow from the Kent Goldings) along with the carbonation provides an easy mouthfeel and drinkability that makes me want to drink more than one of this dark beer. A solid porter.

Caytinator (994) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Clear, reddish-brown beer, no lacing, big head fades off, pleasant warm alcoholic malty smell. Aftertaste isn’t wonderful, a little too effervescent. Good mouthfeel, nice taste, nutty for a porter, not too alcoholic taste, malty, good overall.
