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.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Pours a deep brown that is basically black unless you hold it up to the light. Half an inch of creamy tan foam. Okay head retention and lacing. Very mild roasted grain in the aroma, but not showing me much. Starts with a mild sweet flavor - light chocolate, light maple, light roasted grain, and lightly hopped to balance. Behind this, there is yesterdays coffee flavor. Though it is often a life-saver, I dont much like yesterdays coffee when I am drinking it as coffee, but I am okay with the taste when I experience it in a beer. It should not be the most memorable flavor, however this time it was. Smooth enough and drinkable, gently carbonated.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2007
Black colored, medium sized beige head. Rich aroma with sweet roastiness, chocolate, caramel and even some oaky vanilla in there. Medium bodied. Flavor is more hopped with sweet roastiness and caramel. Bittersweet aftertaste with some biting hops and berries. Creamy palate. Easy to drinki porter, still very enjoyable.

Tranquillity (2099) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2007
Very nice malt aroma, tobacco and sawdust but in a good way. Dark brown with a small white head. Very thick and foamy. Smoke and metal in the taste, but a good beer! Bit weak finish though.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2007
(Bottled) Very dark brown color with a smallish, lasting head. Aroma of salty licorice, some aromatic hops and roasty malt. Dried-fruity, smooth-malty flavor with salty licorice hints. Medium to full-bodied, smooth-carbonated palate. A smooth and classy stout.

Stine (1771) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2007
On tap at the Happy Gnome. Cola-ish in appearance, deep brown but almost transparent. Aroma is like black cherry cola with cream, and weirdly fishy. I taste black olive, prune, and oyster in this...interesting, but not in a winning way, quite. Mildly berry-ish finish that is generically thin and hollow. Not enough roast in this, or chocolate, or nutty flavor...its a decent beer, but not a decent porter.
