Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Beertracker on 12-22-2009

Big Jamoke is an American Robust Porter named for the B-25 that Brewmaster Eric Marshall’s grandfather flew in WW II. A blend of five malts from Munich to Chocolate provide a deep mahogany color and aroma of toffee and roasted coffee. On the palate this beer is full-bodied with hints of bittersweet chocolate and toffee… while finishing smooth and dry from the addition of earthy hops.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

poured into my brand new toon tumblers uncanny x-men pint glass.

pours a dark brown with a fat finger of rich dark brownish/white head with long retention and solid rings of lacing. some floaters.

smell has big toffee, some coffee and a nice profile of roasted malts.

taste is effin amazing. full flavored roasted malts and a subtle coffee note. no alchohol present. i got the second half of the bottle so there is a bit of kinda yeasty in the aftertaste too.lovely mix.

mouthfeel: very dry and leaves me smacking my lips and the back of my throat salivating in desire for more.

drinkability: unfortunately this will be the only time i have it for a while my girlfriend brought me back one when she was in tulsa for the holidays.it is amazingly tasty and of a very sessionable abv.

Big Jamoke pours deep brown throughout, essentially black at the thickest points in the glass, with dark red highlights on the edges. A chunky, tan head tops the beer. The head and lacing is sticky and lasting. Inviting first impression here...my interest is piqued immediately.

Bitter, roasted malts lead the way in the aroma. I interpret some of the roastiness as coffee while the sweeter side of the malts come off as bittersweet chocolate.

Coffee and chocolate dominate the taste, though it's not as full-flavored as the aroma suggests. Cola in the background. It is somewhat acrid (as mentioned previously), and the alcohol interferes only slightly. Tasty stuff.

Mouthfeel is creamy, medium. A more full mouthfeel would really put this beer over the top for me. A nice, surprisingly dry aftertaste lasts for minutes.

I did not want to see the bottom of my glass with this one. Marshall struck an almost perfect balance between "size" and drinkablility, leaving me wanting more after each sip. Blurring the Porter/Stout lines, this is not your usual Porter. Solid, interesting offering from the crew in Tulsa.

4.22/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours dark, dark brown to black. Looks like a stout. Nice creamy beige head with moderate lacing.

Bold smell of dark roasted malt and hops. I'm picking up espresso, dark chocolate, nuts, dark caramel (black treacle?), a bit of cedary hops and a bit of bubblegum. Great smell--deep bass notes and bright piney/citrus notes at the same time.

In the mouth, super smooth and velvety. I am immediately struck by the wonderful balance here. A lot of flavor and character here but so damn drinkable at the same time. Dark chocolate, citrus, coffee, caramel. Great, silky mouthfeel but a little light in body, despite the higher abv and dark roastiness. Perhaps too thin for the style (I'm not sure) but only adds to the wonderful balance and quaffability in my book.

Really great stuff here from Tulsa's own Marshall Brewing. Lovely. Full of character yet supremely balanced. Thanks to Eric and the gang!
