a. Dark brown/black beer with a 2 inch tan bubbly head.

s. Malt, some hops

t. Did not find the hoppy notes that the label called for, but beer was tasty - malt based with yeast.

m. Good mouthfeel from the nice carbonation mentioned in the appearance.

o. Eeeked in to the Outstanding - especially given the lager category.

Bottle from Colonial Spirits.
Pours a clear dark brown with ruby highlights at the edges and a creamy fluffy tan head that persists forever. Aromas of floral spicy resinous hops with bits of bitter chocolate flakes and a hint of coffee. The flavor is rich chocolate and hints of coffee with a solid shot of earthy resinous hop flavor. Moderate hop bitterness lasting long into the finish of each sip. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Very nice black ipa, but it really does straddle the line of being a porter.

A - Poured slowly into a .5L weizen glass. This dark brown/black beer produces a towering, creamy beige head that retains quite well and leaves great rings of lace up and down the sides of the glass.

S - I know that the label says "hoppy black lager" but I really didn't expect the waves of hop aroma that I got from this one. Blindfold me and I'll tell you that I've got a fresh IPA sitting in front of me. Just an ever so fait indicator of roasted malts.

T - Now the roasted character of this beer takes center stage, with the hops doing their thing in more of a supporting role. There is a bitterness that comes in at the end, but it is not sharp, nor does it take away from the roasted aspect.

M - Classic Jack's Abby. Velvety smooth and refreshing. Clean finish. Medium-bodied. Excellent.

O - The only prior experience that I have had with such a beer has been Wookie Jack, which I did not like. Perhaps I got an old one? Needless to say I was thrilled with the quality of this one. It was excellent and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to those who enjoy IPAs, Porters, or anything in between.
