Maybe it's just because I hadn't had a beer in a while, but the glass of Jack the Quaffer that I had was one of the best I've had in a loooong time. The appearance and aroma pretty good, but once you have a sip...that's when you realize that the palate and flavor are amazing! Very carbonated, not bitter at all, very smooth and enjoyable.

On tap at the new brewpub. Poured Dark Brown with a medium brown head. Aroma was heavily roasted with chocolate and coffee. Flavor was a rich chocolate, coffee, and plenty of roasted goodness. Really good malty body. Outstanding porter.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 Sampled at TBBC. Very dark brown in color with light ruby highlights at the bottom of the glass. Aroma: alot of chocolate as well as some roasty and lightly ashy black patent, hints of smoke, light citrus and floral hops. Taste is very roasty but not over the top, tons of chocolate, and a moderate amount of molasses. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy. FInishes with lingering chocolate/roast (black patent). This was probably my favorite beer of the day.

Sampled at the Tampa Lowry Park Zoo WaZoo Festival in August 2008. An excellent malty and chocolatey porter. Dark and robust.

Wow, this was brutally good. Some tanginess, but on the whole very well balanced. Good carbo fizz, medium body. Lots of roast, dry, good hopping.

Cask. Chocolate aroma. Flavour is chocolate w/ a little roast. The cask version is ridiculously smooth.

Ultra dark brown, thick tanned head. Nose on this one was all about chocolate, dark roasted coffee and cream, toasted brown sugar, with a slight vanilla bean tone hidden below. Flavor was similar, well balanced, yet nicely hopped on the backside to round it out. Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, velvety, smooth roasted finish. Really nice session brew....

Probably my favorite beer from these guys. Pours a very dark brown, with a light brown head. Looks medium to full bodied. Some toasted malts, a little chocolate, and a mild roastiness all filled the air around the glass. The roast really showed up in the flavor, with a decent amount of coffee, some mild chocolate and dark malts were there too. Very creamy mouthfeel, that seemed to drink really easy. Not a very strong beer, but it left a good impression on me.

Draught at the brewpub. Dark brown or black pour, whichever it is itís completely opaque. Creamy, one finger thick mocha colored head sticks around for a while, and leaves some average lacing once it dissipates. On the nose I get a ton of coffee - grounds, beans, espresso roast - then a wave of backing chocolate and some dark fruity esters. Smells fantastic, I was shocked how good this smells. Flavor profile backs this up, once again huge on the coffee and chocolate, tons of roastiness and charred beans throughout. Medium bodied, very appropriate for the style. Bit of a slickness to it that enhances itís already high drinkability. Finishes with more coffee beans, chocolate and then a huge kick of bitter roast. Absolutely stellar!
