COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Black Cat er en såkaldt “Black India Pale Ale”, “Cascadian Dark Ale” eller “Dark Hoppy Ale” - kær killing har mange navne. Det er en relativt ny øltype der kombinerer det humlede fra India Pale Ale med de ristede nuancer fra porter og stout. Det er ikke første gang vi hos BeerHere prøver med sådan en type. For en noget kraftigere version af denne øltype kan du prøve BeerHere Dark Hops, der på Ratebeer.com er rangeret som den næstbedste inden for sin stilart.
Black Cat er den første dogme-øl baseret på BeerHere Fat Cat, brygget udelukkende med New Zealandsk Nelson Sauvin humle og på beskedne 4,7% alkohol.
Brygget af bygmalt, chokolademalt, karamelmalt, humle, gær, og vand.

esp0r (2930) - NORWAY - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown, nearly black in glass, huge tanned head. Smells of blackberries, citrus zests and roasted malts. Malty body, some sweetness, but on the lesser side. Distinct roasted malts with some coffee as well. Nice oily feel and quite dry on the palate. Nice bitter finish with berries and some malt bitterness as well. Fat Cat’s black cousin

50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 18.12.2010
Very nice aroma with exotic fruits, hops, hints of roastiness and vanilla. Flavour is hoppy with resin, some fruits, roastiness and hints of ash. Very nice beer for this ABV.

Palme (4823) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2012
0.5l bottle. Another one of the cats! This one purrs a licorice-murky brown body with a medium sized sidesticking light brown head. It smells quite a lot, and it smells pretty darn nice! Lot’s of black licorice, chocolate, roasted sweet goodies and a strong fresh hoppy thing that’s holding it all nicely together. It actually in some bizarre way reminds me of new-car smell! Flavors? Oh yeah.. Light sweet and roasted with both salty licorice, thin chocolate, cold coffee, dark caramel, bitter and cutting-through hops. The only thing reminding me that this is a 4.7percenter is the body that’s a bit on the light side, but hey, this is another fine and really impressive one from one amazing brewer. In my opinion the whole series should be mandatory in all Norwegian grocery stores. 29.06.2012

yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2011
Bottle, from Ølkonsortiet. A dark brown beer, not all clear, and topped by a firm, finger-thick light beige head. The aroma has a light coffee, caramel aroma as well as piney, citrus peel hops. A bit weak maybe, but it suits the ABV quite well. Some residual sweetness, caramel and roasted malts. Coffee and a hint of metal. A good dash of citrus peel hops brings balance. Well, it’s on the hoppy, bitter side. Full body and quite smooth, although slightly high carbonated. Lasting bitter finish with a fine roasted addition. A beer that I would very much like to see in the stores in my area, it slides down very easily and is very tasteful. Ah, and very nice lacings.

TaxiDriver (1830) - Stadland, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2011
Bottle. It smells fruity and malty, vanilla and grapefruit. The medium large pale beige creamy head has a normal duration, the body is nearly black. The taste is bitter, grapefruit, very malty, quite strong taste of coffee. The body is very dry, medium strong with a lively carbonation.

hawthorne00 (4111) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle 9C. Dark brown with an inch of beige head. Very fruity aroma with gooseberries, grass clippings, lychees and darkish caramel. Thinnish body. Taste has a little burnt malt, chocolate, licorice and the mentioned fruit. Fruity finish with growing roasted bitterness. As usual with sort of thing some of the hop aromatics are somewhat obscured, but in this case the fruity bits of the Kiwi hops remain whilst ironically the cat’s piss / cleaning fluid is mostly buried.

MoritzF (10095) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 6, 2011
(bottle) Hazy, dark brown colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Fruity and slightly piney hoppy aroma with notes of exotic fruits and a present dark malty touch, including notes of mocha and liquorice. Bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Dark malty start with a tinge of coffee and liquorice, taken over by fruity and slightly piney/resiny hops from the middle part; bitter-sweet and moderately dry finish with lingering hoppy notes. 06.IV.11

pivnizub (10808) - Bochum, Por�ř�, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2011
Bottle: Hazy, deep amber coloured, almost black, medium-sized - quite stable - lacy beige head; exotic fruits and piney hops in the nose, backed by a touch of roasted malt (almost smokey); moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, pretty soft; lingering fruity (pineapples) and piney-hoppy finish with some dry toasted malt in the aftertaste. Just good.....
