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.

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.

Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in May 2008. Cask, gravity dispense. Ruby black in colour with a thin white head. Strong roast grain note lingers long in the nose. Thick creamy texture to the smooth mouthfeel. Poor lacing throughout. Dark malts give a burnt toast note at the start which fades to give roast flavours of milky coffee and tablet. Moist maltloaf base gives a syrupy dates, sultanas and molasses, sweet in the mouth. Very slight prickle of hop resins noted briefly in the short aftertaste. Finish is very heavy and malty with vinous fruit notes of prunes and treacle toffee. This is an excellent English Strong Ale, though hard to find in Scotland. Highly recommended.

<i>Bottled at Monks Caf Wallingatan, Stockholm. </i> Cloudy dark nut brown, small coarse head. Fruity roasty nose with some bubblegum. Fairly sweet with velvetty soft mouthfeel. Chewy, gently roasty malt gives a mouthfilling solid body and pleasant flavors of wheat bread, spuns sugar and chocolate. Gently warming finish with some light coffee bitterness.
