Name: Black Jack
Brewery: Left Hand Brewing
Country: USA, Colorado
Commercial Fluff: "A traditional London style beer, our Black Jack Porter highlights chocolate malt and Kent Goldings hops. Its slight initial sweetness quickly yields to the distinctive roastiness of the chocolate malt. The Kent Goldings hops perfectly balance the malt, making it very smooth, with a surprisingly clean finish."
Label: What's not to like it's a Squid!
Sight: Pours a dark, dark brown with a mocha head, pretty standard looking stout.
Aroma: Malty, slight hints of chocolate.
Taste: Smooth chocolate, hints of roasted coffee. Pretty easy drinking.
Would I buy it again? Unsurprisingly yes, I like porters and stouts and this one sits right up there with the good ones. Does it beat their Milk Stout, well no, the milk stout will always win out. But what this beer does achieve is being one that I could comfortably drink two or three off in a night at the pub. Now just to locate some more of their beers and see what else they have to offer.
