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 (283) - 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 (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2006
