COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With a dark beer as our first and flagship brand, Black Butte defined Deschutes as a radical player. A slight hop bitterness up front enhances the distinctive chocolate and roasted finish. It’s prized for its creamy mouthfeel and intense complex flavors.

On tap at the Yardhouse in Las Vegas. Poured a dark brown/black color with a thin brown head. The aroma was of roasted malt, brown sugar and molasses. The flavor was roasty, with coffee and chocolate hints. This was full bodied and softly carbonated, with a creamy mouthfeel.

jedimasternick (96) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 1, 2009
An absolute top notch performer and contender for world’s best porter. I have had many porters and this one sets the standard for all others to be judged. It has a hint of chocolate aftertaste and a full bodied dark black color. Yummmmm!
