Had on tap at the brewery during a visit and tour.

It is a basic mediocre American style porter and nothing special. It has a smokey taste along with burnt chocolate, soy sauce, and a small amount of alcohol. The smell is basic roasted barley and a strong smell of the house ale yeast. Not as good as their other beers ok to sample but I wouldn't order it.

Poured on-tap at Mugsy's in Bonners Ferry, Idaho. Reviewed live.

A- one finger khaki head. Thick lacing with mahogany body. No clarity. This is dark. The beer looks like a normal American Porter.

S- chocolate and roast malts. Normal smell. Nothing special.

T- sweet and roasty. Finishes with a mocha-like flavor. Drinkable but not superb.

M- smooth, sticky and dry finish.

O- mediocre porter.

*Reviewed from notes*

Enjoyed on tap at Sazerac Restaurant in Seattle.

A - Delivered with a half finger of of off-white head. Black with ruby highlights lacing is light.

S - Mildly smoky on the nose. Dark malty presence.

T - Average porter taste. Nothing too special, but definitely well balanced and easy going. Bitterness is low.

M - Carbonation is the little high for the style.

O - An average run of the mill porter. I like that it is smoky but not super bitter.

Blackcat Porter, on-tap @ Kahootz Meridian ID. Served in a Full Sail tumbler.

A: Pours with a very dark and opaque body. A very small amount of off white head laces the glass very well.

S: Muted, but pleasant; darker malts, faint smoke, light chocolate, and maybe a touch of raisin.

T: Darker malt character and lightly sweetened cocoa, charcoal. Very low bitterness other than a very light earthy hop presence on the back end.

MF: Very very smooth and creamy medium body, low carbonation...almost silky.

O: A nice drinker, but very muted smells and flavors.
