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.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2011
Bottle. It smells fruity and malty, vanilla and grapefruit. The medium large pale beige creamy head has a normal duration, the body is nearly black. The taste is bitter, grapefruit, very malty, quite strong taste of coffee. The body is very dry, medium strong with a lively carbonation.

Bottle. Haze dark Brown. Medium foam and body. Aromas of caramel- citrus but more on the cereal side. Mild sweet dry-bitter finish. Liked the fat cat better.

RasmusOtt (1255) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2014 Aroma of pine, citrus, hops, grassy notes and you can feel the darker touch in there too. The taste add some roasted malts, coffee and light smoke character. Love the concept .

esox (1107) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 8, 2010
Bottled. Perfect looks: dark ruby with rich head. Fruity sweet hop aroma(apricots, some perfumy soap) with roasted malts. Dark chocolate and a hint of ash in the finish. Dry maltiness, a touch of caramell and bitter aftertaste with enjoyable combination of dark malts and slightly resiny bitterness. Smooth, rich texture. No way thin one is 4,7% abv.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours very dark brown with dense dark tan coloured head. Nice lacing. Initial aromas are dominated by tropical fruit aromas of the hops. The very quickly give way to some rainy pine, roasted grain, a little light chocolate and perhaps a hint of skunkiness. Flavours show of the grain nicely with plenty of roast astringency and some hope bitterness coming through on the finish. Medium mouth feel

phredrik (1011) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 10, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2011 Nice nutty brown pour with a nice tanned head. Aroma has mango, pineapple, apples, burnt rubber, the nice ole nelson sauvin, lightly roasted and caramel. It tastes amazing of lots of nelson with pineapple, mango, apples, slightly roasted and caramel sweetness, quite the same as the nose. This beer rocketh!

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2010
Bottle. First i would like to say YAY Nelson Sauvin! The beer pours a black color with alot of ruby red notes coming through the bottom of the glass. Aroma is of nelson sauvin = tropical fruits like mango and pineapple. I also get grapefruit, and good amount of roasted malt. Flavor starts of with alot of tropical fruit, the mango and pineapple, peach, grapefruit and a nice bitterness. Then i get roasted malt, espresso coffee and some smoke. The body is medium with a dry mouthfeel. Overall this is a really good BIPA, but not as good as Dark Hops.

rane (919) - Nibe, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown with huge pale brown head. Aroma of grapes and roasted malts. Nice. Taste hoppy, dry grape, some bitterness, and a bit of malt in the background. Given only 4.7% ABV this is an amazingly taste beer, but I can´t see the meaning of the black IPA style.

Tap at Carlsens Kvarter. Bottle. Brown with a tan head. Aroma of roasted bread and citric fruits. The flavour is light sweet and medium bitter, dominated by roasted malts and citric notes.

berlinoise2go (626) - NORWAY - APR 2, 2011
Bottle (50cl) at Amundsen Bryggeri & Spiseri, Oslo. Murky, dark brown colour with a red hue. Large light beige head with good retention. Aroma of hops, grapefruit, roasted malt. Medium body (very decent considering the ABV), average carbonation. Taste has a nice complex bitterness, both from IPA-style hops and a tannic berry element (a bit like crowberries). Also a stout-like dryness in the aftertaste.
