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.

Bottle from BierKoning. Dark brown hue with tan head. Oaky, walnut flavour. A strong porter. Chocolate taste, milk to darker. Sweet and spicy. Really nice.

Smells like a porter...looks like a porter...taste more smokey than chocolatey...has a rougher texture than a typical porter...an average but palatable beer. I think this beer could almost pass as a smoke beer if I didnt know it was already was a porter. Not a clean finish as described above...the aftertaste liiiiiiiiingers.

This was a very good porter, however very similar to the milk stout. Has a darker chocolate flavor though.

Poured deep brown, almost black, tan head. Aroma had some cola. Flavor was roasts, chocolate, raisins. Right amount of hops, finishes dry. Good.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Pour was the expected dark brown with some ruby highlights struggling to get through. The head was tan and one-finger tall. Some persistence to the head although it didnt offer up any lacing. The aroma was fairly muted. Some roasted malt and sugary sweetness came through. The flavor was much better than expected. Roasted malt, chocolate, smoke and possibly some floral hops right there at the finish. A nice example of the style.

tgncc (3112) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2007
Acceptable aroma: roasty, coffee, a little sour. The appearance is dark brown/black, decent head. Flavor starts out sweet, then a noticable burnt roastiness. Finally, there is a wierd sourness to it. The finish lingers, but it has a strange sour milk quality. The mouthfeel is on the thick side. OK porter, not the best by any means.

bierkoning (12800) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2007
Bottle. Light cream cheese aroma. Roasted malt aroma with coffee and cream cheese. Friendly, malty, almost full bodied porter.
