Paddock Wood Black Cat

Paddock Wood Black Cat
Schwarzbier from Saskatoon!!

Ratebeer 3.54 85th percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +4

The nose is great with coffee and very light roast. Who knew such good beer could come from the frozen wasteland of the Prairies. The flavours are rich with burnt coffee, bitter chocolate and caramel. If this was an ale, you would call it a porter.

Aftertaste +1

A dry finish did not last long enough, but it was all bitter coffee/chocolate.

Alcohol Content 0 5.4%

Value +1

This was a great, rich dark lager.

Ingame Enhancement +1

Someone got the Arena L4D map ported over for L4D2. This could be the start of something beautiful. I even let Nightware get high score out of respect for this great Sask brew.

Overall 7/10

This is a great dark lager. The roasted and bitter bits did not overwhelm the palate.
