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.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2006
From a 12 oz. bottle with a bottled on date along the right side of label. Poured a dark brown with a foamy, semi-creamy pale head that settled into a thin bubbly lacing, minimal amount of ringed, laced sticking. Aromas of roasted chocolate malts, grainy and earthy with a subtle fruitiness. Good carbonation and a malty crisp, dry, creamy medium bodied mouthfeel. Tastes of roasted chocolate malty with light touches of caramel, an earthy hoppiness, a light sweet dark fruitiness and a dry grainy, malty finish. Not a bad porter from Left Hand, nice drinkability on a cold, rainy midwestern fall night.

Bottle. Light sour roasted malt aroma. Dark ruby-brown body with short-lived light brown head. Cloying taste seemingly built around artificial sweetner and a hint of roast. Lightly sour. Caramel but no bitterness or hops. Medium body aspires to oiliness. Dry aftertaste allows, finally, for some degree of appreciation of the roast. Eh.

On tap. Pours dark brown with amber hues and an off-white head. Slight roasts and cocoa notes that fade rather quickly on the finish. Alright.

kepano (269) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Poured a sinister brown hue enveloped in a spongy tan foam, Left Hands Porter makes little effort to impress through any sensory evaluation. The scent is dusty and sterile, with a noticeable saponaceous background and a stinging mixture of lemon and haystacks. Roasted coffee, chocolate and licorice are ransomed by the asceptic and hesitant ensemble. The palate seems equally gauche, blending what seems a fitting array of flavors though it unfortunately carries no unity and originality. Chocolate, coffee and soil are laced in a smoky ribbon revealing merely a drab and muted product of little worth. Black Jack Porter does not offend but its dispassionateness is utterly unsatisfying.
