What the brewer says

“Hold­ing the cards to bring you down, Black Jack Porter delves deeply be­neath the sur­face to em­brace your ace. Es­presso and dark choco­late fla­vors en­velop your senses, with herba­ceous hops fla­vors.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Dark choco­late, roast, toast, and rich malt all fairly evenly bal­anced. A touch of darker fruit, like cherry and light ba­nana.” Fla­vor: “Milk choco­late with a light caramel body, some dark fruit that comes out on the fin­ish. Great bal­ance through­out.” Over­all: “A well-made, sub­tle, and bal­anced porter. Noth­ing par­tic­u­larly stands out, but there are hints of choco­late, caramel, grassy hops, roast, where ev­ery­thing bal­ances well. That co­he­sive­ness is the hall­mark of a well-made beer, and it’s re­ally pleas­ant to drink.”
