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.

Way too hoppy for a porter, definitely not "black", smells like water. Horrible beer.

bottle into goblet glass. Deep dark brown with very small head, slight sweetness then you get the roasted malt with a hint of coffee. It is smooth and light and pretty well balanced, overall a nice porter.

Slubgob (320) - West Hartford, USA - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle into tall goblet. Very dark brown, minimal head. Typical porter light coffee roast blended with plum nose. Roasty flavor, finishes with refreshing touch of bitter. A solid porter, but nothing terribly special.

Bottled. Blackish with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate and well roasted grains. Taste is chocolate and lactase with a dry bitter finish. Palate is full. Overall: decent.

Not bad but not great either. Good color, nice aroma but still kind of falls short. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Decent Porter. Its a bit mild, smooth, other stuff. 6.8% alcohol is a good thing.

Best by 03/21/15 This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a nice looking dark brown close to black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer. The smell started off with some sweet to roasty coffee to cocoa. Light dark sweet fruitiness rounds it all out. The taste was mainly sweet with a big underscore of the bitter to roasty on the aftertaste and leading into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light allowing a decent stickiness all around. Overall, I say this was a pretty good English Porter that I would have again.

(bottle) clear deep amber-brown colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of hazelnuts and roasted malts, with a light hint of bran flakes, filter coffee and sugar icing. flavour is mostly roasted malts, dark chocolate and bread dough, slightly musty, with big notes of booze and herbal hops in the medium roasted-bitter finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

La Black Jack di colore marrone scuro, con innegabili riflessi rosso rubino; la schiuma fine, beige, non molto persistente. Il naso invece colpisce per equilibrio (come da parola dordine del birrificio), eleganza e sostanza, caratterizzato com da tutte le sfumature del caff e del cacao. In bocca molto rotonda, dalla carbonazione sufficientemente caratterizzata, che lascia velocemente spazio ad una degustazione tranquilla e calibrata. Non stucchevolmente tostata n pericolosamente abboccata, regala il meglio di s nel finale, asciutto, delicato e pulito, con il caff, il tostato e il cioccolato che restano a lungo sul palato.

Cola colored beer with a late forming small beige head. Rich nose of cocoa powder, sarsaparilla, and brown sugar. Flavor is a pleasant mix of unsweetened bitter chocolate, molasses, and lightly charred bread. A good blend of sweet and bitter, this is a solid porter.
