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. Itís prized for its creamy mouthfeel and intense complex flavors.

patrick767 (3721) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2008
bottle - Pours near black with a roast malt and coffee aroma. The flavor is much the same with nicely accented coffee notes and a decently balanced bitterness. I thought it was a touch thin and overall itís alright, but Iíve had better porters.

[1103-20080216] Tap @ Taphouse Grill (Seattle, WA). Malty dark roasted aroma has chocolate hints. Clear, ruby brown body with a quick creamy off-white head. Dark coffee malt roast flavour again has those nice chocolate notes. Grainy medium-full body. Super coffee-ee.

Poured deep brown with small brown head. Aroma of malt and not to much else. Flavor was terrible. For a minute I thought I was drinking out of a drity creek or something. One of the worst porters iíve encountered.

Rusty (1543) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Pours a deep brownish black with a foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted barley, malt and chocolate. Goes down easy with a nice bitter chocolate, sour, toasted barley flavor. Pretty nice porter.

rayOfBeer (672) - El Cerrito, California, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Poured from bottle black with a tan head. Aromas of roasted grains and warmed chocolate. The beer tastes of toatsted grains, roast coffee and, on the sweeter side, bittersweet chocolate. There is a smooth almost creamy malt mouthfeel, yet itís easy to drink with subtle bitterness. Iíll be buying this one again.
