Jack's Revenge is a very deep, dark strong ale with a long malty finish. Its strength is well balanced by a carefully chosen hop blend. Goes well with roast beef. One of a trilogy of beers based upon ghost stories from the Norfolk Broads.

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2008
(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Stockholm, 10 Nov 2008) Very dark ruby colour, almost black, with brief foamy brown head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of dark fruit, chocolate, wild berries and hints of port. Malty, fruity taste with chocolate, sweetened black coffee and dark fruit. Medium body, fairly sweet. Low carbonation makes it quite flat. Nicely balanced with a bittersweet finish. In short: bittersweet fruit and chocolate with a touch of port.

RichardGretton (4237) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2008
Bottle. Blackish/purple beer with a sweet milky chocolate and roasted aroma. The flavour is quite watery at the finish, but at the beginning it is roasted, milky chocolate and slightly bitter. Overall an average beer.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2007
Dark brown with a medium beige head. Sweet, spicy chocolate malt aroma. Roasty malt taste, but lots of fruitiness too. Agreeable bitterness. Picture on the bottle has a skeleton holding a bloody knife. Cheerful.

johndoughty (3937) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2008
Bottle. Dark almost black with a medium body. Malty but with an astringency that gives it a slightly sulphuric aftertaste. If it wasn’t for this it would have scored higher. Interesting story on the label.

sm89walt (1754) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2007
500ml bottle bought from The Little Beer Shop, Norfolk. Comes with an interesting story on the bottle - a nice touch. Dark brown - nearly black - in colour with a thin tan head that creates a nice lacing. Once poured, this beer unearths sweet blackberry notes with some roasted malt aromas in the background. The aromas translate into the flavour giving the tongue tones of lightly sour red berries and hints of wood. Quite carbonated yet smooth on the palate. Sharp and dry finish with a slight sour end resonating from the berry characters. A bit fruitier than I had anticipated, but this is a quality Norfolk ale.

tombyars (1352) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2012
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in May 2008. Cask, gravity dispense. Ruby black in colour with a thin white head. Strong roast grain note lingers long in the nose. Thick creamy texture to the smooth mouthfeel. Poor lacing throughout. Dark malts give a burnt toast note at the start which fades to give roast flavours of milky coffee and tablet. Moist maltloaf base gives a syrupy dates, sultanas and molasses, sweet in the mouth. Very slight prickle of hop resins noted briefly in the short aftertaste. Finish is very heavy and malty with vinous fruit notes of prunes and treacle toffee. This is an excellent English Strong Ale, though hard to find in Scotland. Highly recommended.

Cask, GBBF 2007. Dark ruby with thin tan head. Sweet caramel malty with some spice and cloves. Mouth is sweet malt, spiced and a bit cardboardy. Leaves a dry cardboardy texture with some alcoholic sweetness.
