COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

imdownthepub (9622) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2009
Bottle conditioned, 500ml from Tipples bottle Shop, Norwich. Dark brown, ruby with brownish head. I opened this with trepidation as my previous Tipples bottled beers had been a disaster, however; I needn’t have worried, this was full malty, coffee, chocolate with sweet undertones, it was a decent beer, good stuff.

sm89walt (1712) - 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.

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 18, 2008
Botella. Deep dark brown colour with a short head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, bit coffee and caramel. Soft pleasant mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of chocolate with a good soft roasty maltiness, coffee and caramel. Dry roasty malty chocolate finish.

Svesse (5845) - 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.

johndoughty (3716) - 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.
