Scents of bread and coffee. Pours a rich dark brown its an opulent thick tan head. Good lacing. Rich round tastes of caramel, toast and a coffee undertaste. Light carbonation for such a thick head. Very good ronaldtheriot (1934) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - NOV 24, 2016
Left Hand’s Black Jack Porter has a thin, bone-colored head, a very dark brown appearance, some bubble streams, and almost no lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, dark bread crust, toast, chocolate, and medium-roast coffee. Taste is of medium-dark malts, sweetness, low bitterness, brown bread crust, medium-dark toast, and no char. Mouthfeel is light, and Black Jack finishes on the drier side. RJT thepatrickman (1347) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2016
Bottle at home. Immediately, I got a strong whiff of yeast when I opened the bottle, like I was in a brewery or bakery. It wasn’t bad, but it overpowered everything else in the aroma of the beer. It tastes good, though, in an understated way, with some chocolate and aniseed, before finishing light and a bit sweet. JorgeLee (2116) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown colour, a bit thin looking, bubbles but not much foam. Quite low carbonation. Malty, lots of chocolate. Hint of milky coffee. Not that bitter. Sweet. Light drinking for abv. Milk stout. I get the attempt to separate this from American style porter in the mind of the drinker but I’ve never seen any traditional London porter taste anything like this. Nice though.

20oz, on tap at the brewery in Longmont. Dark brown appearance with slight red hue. Vanilla aroma dominates. Coffee and cream hints. Very easy drinking and surprising not over roasty.

Deep black with medium white head. Aroma is totally vanilla ice cream, some peach as well. Taste is very sweet and a little sourness. More vanilla in the finish, also nuts and cream. Very creamy and smooth. A little too sweet for me. Still not bad. eruizgarcia (340) - - SEP 4, 2016
Very roasty and chocolatey. Starts smooth then the roast takes over, and the finish is slightly bitter. Very good beer. From a bottle at cabin in the MN north shore.

Bottle from Wegmans. Dark brown with a little bit of head, medium body. Caramel malt aroma, chocolate with coffee undertone taste. Mild malt finish, perfectly decent traditional Porter. SinH4 (4794) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2016
Tap. Dark brown color with amber highlight and a tan head. Aroma is cocoa powder, nutty, earthy. Taste is earthy, a bit roasted, molasses, quite light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Not too sweet. Feels quite archetypical and not too modern. Good. graham_murphy (681) - - JUL 30, 2016
Great brewer, great porter. Yes it’s very English and understated. Not pushing any boundaries. Chocolate and vanilla in the malty lightish body with some mildly floral, spicy notes from the hops. Well put together and a good example of the style.
