look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Very dark brown, almost black, with a moderate head that dissipates quickly.

S - Smells of roasted malts and a little chocolate.

T - Flavor is dominated upfront by roasted malts, with an aftertaste of sweet chocolate.

M - Pretty smooth, with a touch of creaminess on the back. There is a moderate carbonation present, but the mouth feel is definitely sessionable.

O - I enjoyed Black Jack Porter. I wouldn't turn down a pint of it, but at the same time there are more memorable options out there. I have sort of a soft spot for Left Hand, because their milk stout is one of my all-time favs, but this was a good beer regardless. I recommend it.
