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.

This porter poured a deep black colour with a minimal, tan coloured head. no lacing. Scents include molassass, caramel, Melloids cough candies, ripe fruit and cocoa. First sip was very smooth with roasted flavours of malt, caramel, mild ripe fruit, coffee and a little chocolate. Finish is sweet and roasty with a syrupy mouthfeel.

A great porter, with some lovely chocolate malt aromas, but enough hops to cut through the abv.

ianwelby (1019) - SCOTLAND - JUN 1, 2016
Reddish black beer, thin white head. Malty coffee aroma. Flavour is similar, with a dash of chocolate, vanilla and some tart, fruity hop. Mellow, hoppy aftertaste.

Steven_B (105) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - MAY 30, 2016
Pours a very dark brown with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts with a slighty sweet coffee note. Taste is roasted malts, dark chocolate and there is a subtle nuttiness. A smooth beer but a little thin.

I could be way off the mark with this but my initial reaction was Black Jack gum! Smells just like a fresh pack! Being a porter of course the sweet sugar taste isn’t present but licorice, licorice, licorice screams outta the glass!

Maersk (111) - MOLDOVA - APR 23, 2016
Thick head. Dark brown, almost black color. Smells wine and bread that is about to be toasted. The mildest non-nitro beer I’ve ever tried. Sweet bread, roast that is there for you in the aftertaste as well. Light bitterness in the finish. Good.

Way too hoppy for a porter, definitely not "black", smells like water. Horrible beer.

bottle into goblet glass. Deep dark brown with very small head, slight sweetness then you get the roasted malt with a hint of coffee. It is smooth and light and pretty well balanced, overall a nice porter.
