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.

Chocolatey in the best possible way. Sat down with a six of these and a bag of M&M’s and had myself a feast.

theprof (830) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2017
Bottle. Aroma has notes of chocolate and coffee. Pours ruby dark no head. Taste has a slightly smoked quality with clear coffee malt savour. A rich dark Porter that commands respect especially from those of us who are left handed.

gripweed57 (1794) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2017
From old tasting notes. Ruby red, brown color. Foamy tan head. Robust roasted malt nose. Sweet roasted malt flavor is both spicy and earthy. Wonderfully complex and flavorful with hints of chocolate, coffee, black pepper and nutmeg. Delicious and a well made Porter.,

LazyPyro (918) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2017
355ml bottle. Pours a very dark clear brown colour with a thin beige head, no real lacing and short retention. Aroma of dark fruit, chocolate, coffee, caramel, roasted malt. Taste is exactly like the aroma, the malts are sweet and theres a very mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth, medium body.

Dacrza (928) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - FEB 18, 2017
DATE: February 18, 2017... OCCASION: Having finally tracked this one down after a decade of first tasting it, I look forward to remembering it again... GLASSWARE: Hop Devil nonick...pours a dark, opaque body that is velvet-red where light reflects... the head is pure cream, half-finger in height, with a beautiful ring of coral lacing... chocolate, peat, and small hints of spice and hoppiness--small caramel and dankness inhabits its breath... a pleasure to sip, with its creamy introduction giving way to a stern backbone... medium-bodied, agreeable, and hearty... dry at its conclusion.... the chocolate and peat are at the forefront of its profile, while the roasted malts evoke caramel and coffee bean with subtlety and relative sweetness... the sum of its parts, this porter is strong but not bold, formidable yet not big, and drinkable without being thin... worthwhile and a good reason to purchase the mix pack it came in...

Scents of bread and coffee. Pours a rich dark brown its an opulent thick tan head. Good lacing. Rich round tastes of caramel, toast and a coffee undertaste. Light carbonation for such a thick head. Very good
