Black Cat Porter pours an opaque, wood-stain brown color with a thin tan head. The retention was decent, the lacing good. The aroma was of rich roasted malt, coffee and light chocolate. The flavors were good too and similar, but not quite as sweet as it smelled. Dark roasted coffee, roasted and blackened malt, smoky notes and a touch of toffee. The mouthfeel was smooth but a little watery, the body medium/full and the carbonation soft.
