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.

Ibrew2or3 (7661) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 24, 2008
On tap at SeaTac @ 6am with eggs and bacon. Nice. Pours dark seemingly murky brown with tan head. Well maybe not so murky. The aroma is mild with notes of roasted malts, toffee and earthiness. This beer is served way too cold to get a good read on the aromatics. The taste starts mildly roasty and sweet with a light amount of dark fruity esters. I also get a suggestion of hop bitterness before a growing malt roastiness transitions from moderate roasted malts to more of a burnt maltiness with an edge of chocolate malts. All of their offerings here could be served warmer.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2008
burnt coffee, nearly completely black. dry roast flavor doesn’t do a ton for the complexity, but makes it very easy to drink. i always fill up my growler with this since you can get the amber everywhere. french roasted coffee ground finish. too bad it’s 3am and i’m by myself, i’ll have to finish this growler alone before it goes bad
