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.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2011
0.5L bottle. Dark reddish brown and translucent, with a lacing near-white head. Soft, light chocolatey and toasted malt aroma, together with a significant tropical fruity and catty Nelson Sauvin hop aroma. Medium sweet, softly roasted and chocoltey malt flavor. Notes af licorice. Nice topical fruity and citrussy hop flavor. Distinct hop bitterness all the way. Well-bodied. Soft on the palate. Fruity bittering hops linger in the finish. Good stuff.

dEnk (4178) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2012
Bottle. Aroma is very roasty with strong blue cheese hops. Some liquorice and caramel. Flavour is dry and roasty with a mild hop note. Need to try a fresher bottle for the hops to shine I guess. Still very nice though.

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2012
0.5l bottle. Another one of the cats! This one purrs a licorice-murky brown body with a medium sized sidesticking light brown head. It smells quite a lot, and it smells pretty darn nice! Lot’s of black licorice, chocolate, roasted sweet goodies and a strong fresh hoppy thing that’s holding it all nicely together. It actually in some bizarre way reminds me of new-car smell! Flavors? Oh yeah.. Light sweet and roasted with both salty licorice, thin chocolate, cold coffee, dark caramel, bitter and cutting-through hops. The only thing reminding me that this is a 4.7percenter is the body that’s a bit on the light side, but hey, this is another fine and really impressive one from one amazing brewer. In my opinion the whole series should be mandatory in all Norwegian grocery stores. 29.06.2012
