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.

Very rarely do I really enjoy a porter, but I gotta hand it to Mac and Jacks. This is tasty!! Not too roasty, actually pretty fruity

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.

Smooth, full bodied real porter. Very nice roasted coffee bean flavor without being over roasted and bitter. The malt really provides a good playing field to bring the rest of the flavors into the palate. The slightly semi-sweet bitter chocolate flavor is also a great piece of a wonderful porter puzzle.

Exceedingly smooth Porter. So dark, it’s nearly black, yet not bitter. Flavors of chocolate with a bit of coffee. Easy to drink beer that doesn’t try to do too much. The best porter I’ve ever tasted.

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.

On tap at the EMP. Pours a dark brown color, semi-transparent, with shades of rootbeer and cherry wood, topped by a creamy layer of light tan head. Aromas of dry chocolate, toast, and a subtle hint of ashy smoke. Not really any roast character per say, but just a lot of toasty smooth dark malts. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated, milky smooth mouthfeel. Lots of chocolate and mild roast coffee on the tongue. Finishes dry and smooth with minimal roast bitterness, leaving a pleasant chocolate malt residue lingering. Satisfying porter with no troublesome qualities.
