Pours a pitch black body with a khaki, 1/4 inch head. Beer is completely opaque. Head retention and lacing were good.

First aromas are of tons of smoked and burnt caramel malts. Oak flavors are also present, hops are very faint. There is a weird copper scent that lingers and alcohol isn't apparent.

Dominent flavor at first is definitely smoke, reminiscent of a smoked porter or rauchbier. There is also a touch of caramel sweetness with end notes of slight bitterness. For 6.5 abv, alcohol is pretty subtle. Only blemish on taste is a weird copper aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and smooth as you would hope for the style. Head added some thickness to the beer. Carbonation was pretty lively.

Overall this was a pretty solid beer. Nothing mind blowing but good in all aspects. Wouldn't seek out this beer but glad I tried it

This is one of my last bottles from an Ohio buying trip a few months back. It pours a handsome near black with a short lived tan head that leaves a nice film and lacing. The aroma is bittersweet chocolate, lightly roasted coffee, caramel malts, and vanilla. The mouth is light and easy to drink. Surprisingly refreshing for this dark of a beer. The flavor is indeed a robust blend of roasted malts, coffee, and vanilla. Sligtly sweet but pleasantly bitter on the tail end. This is a very well crafted porter. Its no Deschutes or Founders but very good none the less.

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.
