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 a lot of places around Portland.
Really great porter. Chocolate, coffee and dark smoke notes. Great hop balance around the dark flavors. A great, classic, solid porter that you can never go wrong with.

RedSox2004 (1673) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Poured dark braown with a thin tan head that left ok lacing. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate with a touch of hops. Wonderful flavors that mirrored the smell, with an underlying toaste biscuit flavor and perfectly balanced hops bitterness. Burnt sugar and a wisp of alcohol in the aftertaste. Medium body, good carbonation and a smooth, rich mouthfeel. This is one of my favorite porters.
