Le Chat Noir (Black Cat in French). This beer is the same malt and hop profile as our Black Cat stout but fermented out with a Belgian Yeast strain. This yeast gives the fruity and spicy esters off during fermentation to make this a great Belgian style stout.

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with good retention recedes leaving trailing sheets. Dark chocolate and pit fruit aromas. Creamy upfront with dark chocolate covered summer fruit upfront turning to dry espresso in the lasting finish.

On tap at the source for a late lunch. Dark brown with a huge tightly bubbled tan head that persists forever. Rich creamed coffee with hints of peppery spice and a touch of earth and light fruit. Creamy silky smooth mouthfeel. the Belgian yeast is a little odd, but I enjoyed it.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2014 Had on tap at the source. I dont remember what I paid. To pint, it pours a mauve-tinted purplish dark brown with which a beige head finger in length stood. Tastes and smells of coffee syrup, ground nutmeg, Cloves cigarettes, Grandmas Original molasses, stale bread, DME, and bubblegum. Extra kick of Belgian flavor not appreciated. I much preferred Black Cat over this. KISS, Portsmouth.

Tap at brewery. Pours dark brown with a slight ruby tint and thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malts, faint coffee, earthy notes, fig, and light spice. Flavor is roast malts forward with chocolate, light earthy hops, and some dark fruit esters; watery with a dry finish. Light/medium body and low carbonation.

pours clear very dark brown with a very small light beige head, little retention. roasted grains, oats, wheat, milk chocolate, spices, bit of soy and unfortunately a dash of nail polish, earthiness. moderate to low carbonation, medium body - oily, relatively dry bitter coffee and grassy-earthy finish. decent.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Dark brown color with tan head that quickly disappears. Im not really tasting the Belgian yeast that advertised. In fact, Im not tasting much of anything. Watery mouth feel and no distinct coffee or chocolate flavors that coming with stouts normally. Honestly, quite a letdown, because I expected so much better.
