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.

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.

Ibrew2or3 (8614) - 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.
