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.

On tap. Pours a black color with a nice white head on top. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, raisins, and caramel. Flavor is nice and smooth with dark chocolate hitting the tongue mostly. Slight bitterness in there to keep it from being too sweet. A nice porter.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2006
(07.25.06) 12 oz brown bottle from Liquid Solutions. Best by 8/24/06. 5.2% ABV. Lot 1158b. roasted malt aroma. Poured clear dark brown with small white head. Soft carbonation. Light Ėto -medium bodied ale that starts dry with roasted malt and fruitness (raisin?) flavors. finished dry with light roasted malt and some bitterness. Monodimensional in flavor complexity. Though on the thin side, this is a good drinkable porter.

One of my favorite porters. I love the aroma, and the complexity of the flavor, very rich, with hints of molasses.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Had a nice roasted coffee flavor. The aroma was rather faint, but when you got up close to it, it was nice. Nice porter, but certainly not the best ever.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Black body. Aroma is coffee with roast, chocolate and caramel. Some malt bitterness here. I thought it was a decent porter, but I donít see what all the hype is about. Iíve tasted a zillion others just like it..

2beerguys (299) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 2, 2006
The porter-style offering pours black and settles dark brown that appears red in the light. A fizzy, off-white head forms above. Poor lacing and a fully diminishing head. Aroma is of strong burnt malts, with notes of dark chocolate. Initial taste is moderately sweet which carries right through to the finish. Long duration. Watery and thin on the mouth, it has a sweet, smooth finish with light carbonation.
