Draught at Brewery: Aroma of choclate, smoke, and roast. Poured dark brown in color. Small, light-brown head diminished. Good lacing. Tasted of choclate, coffee, and cream. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Overall, a decent porter. kepano (278) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Poured a sinister brown hue enveloped in a spongy tan foam, Left Hand’s 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. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2006

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2007 A nicely brewed deep black porter. Nose of malted bartley and tastes of well, barley. The hops come through with a nice malty edge, followed by a peanutty, earthy flavor. MattShizzle (613) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2006

Pours a nice black with a tan head. There is a slight roasted aroma and the flavor is primarily of roasted malt and some hop. yemntftb (106) - USA - SEP 18, 2006
Bottled. Wow I was suprised to find a Colorado-no-namer in New Jersey. Picked up the variety pack, and to tell you the truth, really enjoyed all four different types. This porter is especially good, with choclate malt and nice hops. The beers very smooth and sweet, great for winter! Too bad its not even cold out yet. Worth a try, and of course there is better, but this is pretty damn solid.
