Hoping for some nice strong flavored dark beer, I bought a bottle of Black Cat brewed by the Moorhouse Brewery in England this afternoon. But the Black Cat disappointed me. It was dark alright, in fact, very dark, but it had a rather wimpy flavor and aroma. Moreover after a handful of my usual beer-snacks, chocolate covered pecans and an assortment of other nuts, the Black Cat developed an unpleasant after taste.
According to the label, this beer has been winning awards in beer festivals in England. It just shows you how meaningless such awards are.
