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.

Coffee and some oyster smell, dark brown & red, like Pepsi color, smooth and good, but rather for porter, slightly slimy, pretty good but not top notch

Appearance: minimal head, dark brown look, good lacing, and a murky body like a typical porter. Aromas: nutty, Carmel, cookie, dough, smokey. Palate: medium body, creamy thick texture, flat carbonation. Flavor: nice long finish, medium sweetness level, and you get the hints from the aromas. Cool artwork! Does not trump my favorite porter from Atwater.

CraftyBeerTour (18) - Barcelon, SPAIN - APR 21, 2014
12oz bottle. Reddish dark brown pour. Little head formation, which is off-white, light cream colour. Aroma of milk chocolate, caramelising brown sugar, some dark pudding fruits. Smells as though it will be sweet. And yes, sweet, brown sugar, coke and cherry flavours come through. It’s smooth in the palate, some carbonation to rinse the mouth, little bitterness. At 6.8 ABV and after the aroma I perhaps expected more oomph, or more of a longer taste journey.

MadRobin (1702) - Silver Spring, USA - APR 14, 2014
On tap at Quarry House Tavern in Silver Spring, MD. Clear, dark raspberry-mahogany with a creamy khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma of toffee, milk chocolate and a little roasted coffee. Taste of roasted English malt, milk chocolate, a bit of coffee Andy just enough mild earthy hops to give the beer a modicum of balance. Medium/full body and medium/high carbonation. Nothing special here, but the beer grows on you as it warms. A nice beer to nurse as I wait for my check. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jb (2057) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2014
bottle from one stop. I’d swear I’ve had this, and definitely it has been a late cut in the bottle shop many a time. Dark clear reddish beer. Chocolatey. Sweet. This followed up a much better stone porter but it held up better than I expected.Roasted toasted notes in the nose and palate. Dry hoppish ending. I’d get this again.

OK. Perhaps this one doesn’t hold up under cask. Some light roast malt. Dark brown pour. Very light coffee with a light bitter finish. I had the dry-hopped cask version but hops aren’t evident. Cask at Church key.
