Another reasonably priced bomber bottle from the Brew Kettle. Poured into my nonic glass. The porter appears a somewhat clear dark brown color with about an inch of fluffy ecru foam. Notes of mild coffee, medium roasted bready grains, milk and bittersweet chocolate, and caramel make up the majority of the nose and taste. A tad better than medium bodied with ample carbonation.

A-Deep, dark brown with a thin light brown head. Head reduced to a thin ring and left spotty lace.

S-Dark roasted malt, and a light dose of chocolate malt. A bit of black coffee bitterness in the background.

T-Dark roasted and chocolate malt perform an impressive duet. A nice dose of espresso bitterness in the finish.

M-Medium-full, rich and roasty with nice lingering flavours.

D-A nice full flavoured porter that has all of the taste attributes that I like. Well done and at only 6% ABV this is an easy beer to enjoy multiples of.

RN Black Jack Porter Poured from tap into a clean, clear glass at The Brew Kettle earlier tonight.

A Black, no light gets through. Thin light brown head. A good look and appropriate to the style.

S Dark malt, some chocolate. Later, after the pint sat for a few minutes, the sweet chocolate smell became a bit more prominent. That was nice.

T More dark malt than chocolate but a very nice tasting porter. I think that it is true to style in that it remains thin like a porter and does not become a stout.

M Full for sure. Big tastes, 6.0 ABV make this a big beer.

D Fair to good. This is a big beer but it maintains my interest enough to make it more drinkable than it might otherwise for being so big.

Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours black with dark brown around the edges. Medium thin beige head that has good retention. Thin sheet of lacing on the glass. Roasty aroma of malt and coffee. Medium-bodied with a rich coffee character, with sweet malt and mild hops flavors supporting it. The finish is equal parts hoppy and malty with a lingering espresso aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Bottle received in trade from Crizay. Thanks Chris!
Pours black with slight ruby edges and a lasting tan head. Smell is roasty with some coffee hints. Pretty nice nose overall. Taste is of medium richness of roasty bittersweetness. Balanced with a hint of alcohol and a lingering dark roasted flavor and somewhat of an odd bitterness at the end for me. Decent porter.
