COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Black Cat er en såkaldt “Black India Pale Ale”, “Cascadian Dark Ale” eller “Dark Hoppy Ale” - kær killing har mange navne. Det er en relativt ny øltype der kombinerer det humlede fra India Pale Ale med de ristede nuancer fra porter og stout. Det er ikke første gang vi hos BeerHere prøver med sådan en type. For en noget kraftigere version af denne øltype kan du prøve BeerHere Dark Hops, der på Ratebeer.com er rangeret som den næstbedste inden for sin stilart.
Black Cat er den første dogme-øl baseret på BeerHere Fat Cat, brygget udelukkende med New Zealandsk Nelson Sauvin humle og på beskedne 4,7% alkohol.
Brygget af bygmalt, chokolademalt, karamelmalt, humle, gær, og vand.

hawthorne00 (2481) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle 9C. Dark brown with an inch of beige head. Very fruity aroma with gooseberries, grass clippings, lychees and darkish caramel. Thinnish body. Taste has a little burnt malt, chocolate, licorice and the mentioned fruit. Fruity finish with growing roasted bitterness. As usual with sort of thing some of the hop aromatics are somewhat obscured, but in this case the fruity bits of the Kiwi hops remain whilst ironically the cat’s piss / cleaning fluid is mostly buried.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2011
It’s transparent black with a red hue and a huge, creamy head. The aroma is hoppy with notes of spruce, straw and citrus. The flavour has a light sweetness and a light, dry bitterness, and it has the same hoppy notes as the aroma plus nice licorice. The finish is roasted.

stouby (3769) - Holbæk, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2011
Bottle at home. Light hazy orange-brown with a beige head, nice lacings. Aroma light malty (roasted), heavy hoppy (spicy). Aroma light to moderate sweet, heavy bitter. Light to medium body, kind of watery.

Sigmund (5188) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2011
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger, ABV is 4.7%. Very dark brown colour, big beige head. Nice aroma of fruity and grape-like Nelson Sauvin hops, some roasty notes too, hints of dark chocolate. Refreshing flavour, mostly due to the hops, but there are also distinct and dry roasty notes, hints of ashes in the finish. A decent enough beer, but I am still not convinced that the recently invented combination of fruity hops and dark roasty beer is the best idea ever.

Bov (9629) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 25, 2011
from erzbierschof.ch - dark ruby-brown in colour and with a little dark beige foam left, nice lacework; aroma of black chocolate and walnuts; quite sweet and with a medium malt backbone, some tartness and a quite dry bitter and roasted chocolatey aftertaste - charming

Gr0ve (2145) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2011
500 ml bottle. Dark brown, almost black. Clear. Tall light fluffy beige head that clings to the glass. Bold hoppy aroma with notes of licorice. Ashy aroma. Peppery and minty flavours. Licorice flavours. Medium body. Grassy hop flavours. A really strange beer, which reminds me of liquid sweet licorice mixed with grassy hops. Very flavourful for a beer this low in alcohol.

flavio_b (277) - ROME, ITALY - FEB 14, 2011
Floral, citrus taste and fruity. Dark brown body with a medium white head. Caramel and malt feelings but also liquorice. Very nice beer. Dry hoppy at the end.

Beer4000 (4538) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2011 500 ml bottle. Amber body with a big, creamy beige head. Very nice aroma of grapefruit and other citric fruits, pine and caramel. Flavor is pleasant, light roasted malt, caramel, lots of citric fruit and well-balanced bitterness. Feels quite light and refreshing, still distinct in flavors, relatively complex, smooth and balanced. Really nice considering such low alcohol, could easily be a favorite session beer. Great stuff!

Camons (6124) - Hasselager, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2011
Bottle @ Ølkonsortiets BeerHere tasting. Pours black with small offwhite head. Aroma of hops, pine, grapefruit and roasted malt. Taste is hoppy with some coffee, caramel and roasted malt added. Medium to big ( for a 4,7 ABV beer ) body, soft carbonation, long roasted finish. Just good. 280111

Jaksmart (425) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2011
Bottle. Dark red, medium cream foam. Dark malt profile, some quite apparent hops, faint liquorice, more mild on the hop side. Taste has a porter-like smoky roast with a nice hoppy bitterness. Spices as well. Big body for a 4,7.
