COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap at Taphouse. M&J is known primarily for their African Amber, which is the beer that people in the Seattle area mean when they say "Mac and Jack’s." Although Black Cat was a decent porter, it doesn’t hold the same wow factor. It pours a black black with no head to speak of . Aromas are standard for a porter, caramel and some chocolate with a bit of roasted malt. Flavors of toasted malt, oak, pepper, and a faint hint of chocolate.

alexanderj (3405) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 5, 2009
On tap at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Dark brown to black in color. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and buttery bread. Flavor was also a bit buttery, which was not appreciated. Not much roasted malt either. Really, not much going on at all. Disappointing beer.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 9, 2009
This one hits the mouth very bland and without structure...but opens up to some hearty and robust malt. It ends with a semi-sweet kick and a lingering aftertaste. Kinda chuncky mouth feel however....

jake65 (2881) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Tap at TFD Boise: Very dark brown pour with a finger of creamy tan head. Nice sheets of lacing. Aroma is soft of roasted malt and cocoa. Tastes smooth and sweet with more cocoa than roast or coffee. Rather tame, but still pleasant.
