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.

Bottle shared at Øl og matfestivalen. Dark brown , huge beige head. Roasty aroma of dark fruits, plenty of hops. Complex roasty taste with coffee, tropical fruits, licorice and spices. Good dry hoppy ending

hawthorne00 (2541) - 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.

hirigalzkar (2355) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2010
Bottle. Pours dark amber, off white head. Floral notes and citrus sweetness in aroma. Dark malts and flowery hops in taste. Big taste for a 4,7%ABV beer.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 22, 2011
Bottle (purchased in Aust, drunk in NZ). Delicious dark chocolate on both the nose and the palate. The tropical fruit from the hops isn’t overpowering but does a great job of lifting the overall flavour. A more subtle ’Black IPA’ that most these days, and all the better for it.

Vignale (2174) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2011
Kaffefärgad med ganska lågt skum. Massor av olika märkliga dofter. Kokta konserverade grönsaker, främst kål, kaffe, lite metall, lite halvunken humle. Smaken är bättre. Lätt kropp, torrt fruktig som en engelsk bitter, måttlig men närvarande beska och så de där grönsakstonerna som stör lite. Tobak i eftersmaken som är fin. En märklig men rolig upplevelse.

Gr0ve (2155) - 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.

Grima (2122) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2011
In the glass, black as night, with lots of brown foam. Smells very aroma hoppy, Cascade, also slightly like dark malts and caramel. The beer starts with a heavy malt body, roasting coffee-bitter, with a wonderful aroma hops in the background, which increase more and more, by time. The finish turns out again very strong to dark malts, slightly bitter, with strong aromas of roasted coffee. Terrific beer!

Bottle enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown, nearly black in glass, huge tanned head. Smells of blackberries, citrus zests and roasted malts. Malty body, some sweetness, but on the lesser side. Distinct roasted malts with some coffee as well. Nice oily feel and quite dry on the palate. Nice bitter finish with berries and some malt bitterness as well. Fat Cat’s black cousin

wyzzywyz22 (2036) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2011
Bottle from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Poured a deep dark brown colour with a generous tan head. Enticing nose of piney hop, citrus, roasted malts and dark chocolate. Flavour was a decent mix of roasted malt, citrus and some well judged hop bitterness. Considering its strength there is a lot packed in here. This black cat is more than welcome to cross my path any time.

Davros (2027) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2011
Pours dark brown with a quickly fading small head. Tropical fruit on the nose along with sweet caramel and roasty malt. Very similar flavours, tropical hops and a small amount of roasty malt. Finishes with a bold hoppy bitterness. Carbonation is suitably moderate...
