The Brew Kettle One Eyed Jack Robust Porter has a thin, tan head (which becomes thick, when the bottom of the bottle, with the sediment, is swished and poured in), a very dark brown, almost black appearance, and substantial lacing left behind. The aroma is mild, but one can pick up a slight bit of roasted malt and some sourness. The taste is of medium-roasted barley malt, chocolate, coffee, brown bread crust, and a touch of bitterness, as well. Mouthfeel is medium and slick. One Eyed Jack finishes wet, refreshing, mild, and easy going. Overall, this is a very good beer.

Color is nice. Almost no head. Very chocolatey aroma. Smooth and surprisingly light on the tongue. It's got all the flavors you want in a porter. Bitter coffee, loads of chocolate, light smoke, some oak and vanilla.

The first couple sips didn't do a lot for me, but now that it's warmer, all the flavors are coming out more. Definitely give this some time to come up to temp. It'll make a difference.

This is very good, but it's a step below the elite porters I've had. But I couldn't tell you what's missing. Certainly not a disappointment.

Bomber into a snifter. This bottle is circa 2010 and was lodged in the back of the fridge. The brew pours a dark brown with clarity around the edges and a frothy khaki head sits atop. Some spotty webs of lace stick to the glass.

The aroma includes notes of milk chocolate mixed with a little bit of roast. It is somewhat oxidized with earth and mild citrus to fruity hops components blended into the nose. A mild fruity tinge is present somewhat reminescent of raisins.

The taste includes a flavor of raisins and the previously mentioned milk chocolate character with minimal dry roasty flavor. A little hint of earth breaks things up coupled with an aftertaste of tobacco and citrus to fruity hops.

This is a medium to lighter bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. It is overall a bit lighter in the feel than expected with almost too much of a watery and easy drinking feel. Overall though it id nice and without fault. Just an everyday easy drinking porter that id probably enjoy again if offered but wouldnt go out of my way for.
