Jack's Revenge is a very deep, dark strong ale with a long malty finish. Its strength is well balanced by a carefully chosen hop blend. Goes well with roast beef. One of a trilogy of beers based upon ghost stories from the Norfolk Broads.

sm89walt (2056) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2007
500ml bottle bought from The Little Beer Shop, Norfolk. Comes with an interesting story on the bottle - a nice touch. Dark brown - nearly black - in colour with a thin tan head that creates a nice lacing. Once poured, this beer unearths sweet blackberry notes with some roasted malt aromas in the background. The aromas translate into the flavour giving the tongue tones of lightly sour red berries and hints of wood. Quite carbonated yet smooth on the palate. Sharp and dry finish with a slight sour end resonating from the berry characters. A bit fruitier than I had anticipated, but this is a quality Norfolk ale.

Fin (10380) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
Bottle from Beers of Europe, consumed outside my tent at Towersey Festival Dark brown with little head to speak of, quite smokey on the aroma but with some bitter chocolate and coffee in there. Coffee more prominent in the taste, very tasty beer by the way, dark fruits and nicely underpinned with a good solid malty base, lovely beer.

Dark brown with a big and lasting creamy off-white head. Fruity and roast aroma with dates, raisin, chocolate and licorice. Rich and malty flavour roast complexity. Could be a little brother to my favourite beer in the world, lfabrikken Porter.
