Hints of chocolate and coffee accent this rich and creamy brew. Blackcat’s smooth approachable flavor demonstrates that dark beers can be enjoyed by all. Our traditional Porter features five select specialty malts, English Ale yeast and fresh Northwest hops. Blackcat is clean and crisp, yet complex and flavorful. A superbly balanced beer that is drinkable any time of the year.

Rating #1904 - 2015.09.24 - #CraftTakesSeattle Beer 2 - Tap at the Crab Pot. Clear, dark brown pour with a foamy, tan head. Aroma is dark roast malts, walnut, chocolate, and almonds. Medium body, crisp, if simplistic.

Ehh, bland for a porter. Light & creamy in body but lacking in the flavor department! Pours pretty but that’s about the best thing going here. Mediocre at best!

On tap at Mac & Jack’s, pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma brings out coffee grounds, dry cocoa and toasted malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with dry crusty bread and light roast. Pretty ordinary but smooth porter. Decent.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2014
On tap. A nice porter with a fine malty roasted base and a floral hopiness in the finish. A bit weak in the palate.

kramer (5910) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Tap. Pours a clear dark brown body with a nice foamy one finger light brown head that had excellent retention. The nose is roasty and chocolaty with some nice licorice notes, a little coffee and caramel as well. The flavor is pretty nice, a touch thin, chocolate and roasted malts, some coffee, light malt bitterness on the finish. Light bodied and a bit watery in texture, but not in a bad way, soft minimal carbonation. Thin roasty lingering finish. OK beer, but it could use a little more body, a bit heavy on the roastiness for a Porter as well for my tastes.

Draught. I was not impressed at all by this porter. It did not sit any better than the macro porters coming out of Milwaukee.

On tap @ The TapHouse in Seattle. Nice looking deep mahogany with a thickly lacing tan head, nicely balanced roasty porter with light ash, light aniseed.

Apparently I’m supposed to fill this out. Take the numbers that I put down with a grain of salt if you will, but I’m just your average NW beer junkie looking to sample as many different brews as possible.

On tab. Dark brown blackish color. Thin tight head. Great roast coffee nose. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Finish feels a bit off.
