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.

Bottled. Pours a deep dark brown/ruby with a finger thick beige head on its top. Roasty aroma escorted by chocolate, dried fruits and some vanilla. Slick mouthfeel. Medium dry, sweetbitter, roasty finish underpainted by the hops. Easy drinkable, enjoyable one.

Poured from bottle, a darker caramel color. Small yellow brown head, with little lacing. Pleasant bread dough aroma, with a smooth malty taste. Mild hints of hops and a clean finish. An enjoyable porter to say the least.

Thisis12ptfont (992) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Aromas of dark malts, coco powder, coffee roast, slight nuttiness, toffee and mocha. Appears black with a quick erasing foam. Taste is predominate black malt (perhaps a great deal of black patent), dark grains, toffee, roasted coffee, coffee oils, slight mocha and a faint nuttiness on the back end. Overall, very standard porter but drinks well.

Mrnoluv (215) - long beach, California, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Not a very strong smelling beer, the color isn’t that appealing, but maybe I just got a bad bottle or a good bottle, this has a spicy, peppery taste to it that is incredible. I could feel the burn in the top of my chest! I will try another, I don’t see anyone else mention this, like I said I think I got a bad bottle but this was a great surprise!

jamaty (1237) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2015
Negra, casi sin espuma. Aroma tostado y cereal, algo ahumado. Muy suave y cremosa. Sabor de malta tostada, con bastante toque de chocolate y ligeramente lupulado. Postgusto seco y cereal. Muy buen equilibrio. Muy bebible. Muy apreciable.

Mep3222 (869) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Chocolate roasted malt aroma and flavor. Has a bitter cocoa finish that detracts a bit, but also a lactose smoothness and slight lactose sweetness. Body feels a bit thin in the middle but overall it is a nice easy drinking Porter. There is a noticeable hop bitterness that comes through. Herbal, a bit floral, somewhat nice and a bit distracting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
