A thin, flavorless porter. Very little aroma at all; just a hint of roasted grains. Flavor has more roast but overall this is very light in every way, including the light brown color. stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2007

Black Jack porter pours such a dark brown that it’s almost black. It has a small amount of deminishing head, with a little bit of lacing. Overall it’s an OK porter.

Poured a nice dark coffee flavor with a light amount of head. Taste with a hint of coffee and dark chocolate with a light malty finish. a very nice beer 2beerguys (299) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2007
This porter pours a murky black color with a frothy, light brown head. Fair lacing follows a mostly diminishing head. Aroma is of heavy burnt malts. Initial taste is lightly sweet, with a burst of moderate sweetness at the finish with a long duration. Medium body on the mouth, it has a nice creamy finish. maddydaddy (6) - Estill Springs, Tennessee, USA - FEB 9, 2007 does not count

Pours a deep reddish hue with brown highlights. Smells of cocoa powder which transitions nicely to a creamy coffe aroma. A deeply roasted malty smell complements the sweetness of the nose. The flavor begins with sweet chocolaty flavors. This gives way to roasted coffee and nuts. A good hop profile at the finish balances this brew out. Medium bodied but too thin on the palate for the style. The palate falls short of supporting the sweetness. Overall the flavors are pleasantly sweet and balanced well with the hop bitterness. Could use some more girth on the palate but still a decent porter with good drinkability. FlagstoneHill (215) - Erie, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2007
