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.
