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.

Not really like a porter i’m used to. Usually they are strong dark flavored. But this one is the first one you can actually see through. It’s more like a hazy amber beer then a porter. This comes back in the taste. It’s very easy going, light and almost refreshing. Not the big flavor profile like most other porters, but it does taste nice. It’s very caramel based. Not much bitter like most porters are (coffee) but well balanced and tasteful.

JStax (2773) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle pour. Pours a dark brown to black with a khaki colored head of foam. Good retention. The aroma is nicely roasty and sweet. I get hints at coffee and vanilla beans. The taste is rich and roasty. Medium mouthfeel with low to medium carbonation. I liked this beer a lot more than I expected to. Very good.

Holmen1 (2272) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2014
Flaske delt med Ovesen: fint men kortvarig skum. Bæraktig aroma med litt trøffelsjokolade. Smaken likeså i starten, som mot slutten går over i vaniljeaktig sjokoladepålegg. Litt for enkel.

Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a translucent dark brown with off-white head. Smells solid; dark malt, dark chocolate, and hops. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
