Black Jack pours an almost black brown color. With a very fleeting off white head.

Smoky aroma notes dominate.

The flavor is smoky with a little spiciness from the hops.

The beer is so smooth all the way through. Feels medium bodied.

Very drinkable.

A pretty good porter indeed.

2.69/5  rDev -27.5%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A: Looks black - but there is light penetration that makes it look like a dark red or even purple. Forms a 1 1/2 finger frothy white head. There is nice lacing as the head subsides.

S: Nothing prominent on the nose.

T: Early there is not really much flavor. On the mid palate I am getting some roasted notes and bitter chocolate (very slight)

M: It is okay - not great. Decent body.

O: I usually only rate one beer a day and I was tempted to dump this one and sneak in one more tonight. It is really underwhelming. No real flavor or smell to make it worth continuing. It has a best by date of 7/14/14 (next month) so it still has some life in theory. I won't get this one again.
