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.

porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2005
On tap at The Beaver. poured a thick deep brown almost black. An aroma of chocoalte and weak vanilla. The flavors of this porter keep me coming back for more. Very well blended chocolate and toffee, some porters go for aggressive flavors, this one keeps it simple and it really shines through.

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 (5034) - 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.

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.
