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.

I bought a six pack of this while on a visit to California. I wish it could be bought in Tennessee. Poured very nicely and had a great taste to it. When I visit again, will definately make another purchase.

This stuff is great! Dark and smooth,it has a nice roasty chocolatey taste to it. Slighty thin, but the taste more than makes up for it.

Had this in a bottle at PF Changs in Phoenix. Nice, rich malts which were bold but not as complex as I might have thought given my expecations. Enjoyable and easy-drinking for a Porter.

Sampled at world beer festival. dark pour, with a large off-white to light beige head. aroma of roast, chocolate, some fruit present as well. Flavor reflects its aroma, but not as good. Decent brew.

This is the nectar of the gods. A great brew that just gets better every year. I love the use of the roasted malts. The chcolate flavors are also through out the beer and this is just a great beer for anyone to drink. One of the best beers I have ever had.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2006 Pours a dark nearly black with only the slightest tinge of ruby. The head is fairly large, fluffy, and off-white, and it has decent longevity. Nose is pleasent with hoclate, backed up by fig, vanilla, and slight roast. Flavor is started with a coffee roast flavor with the chocolate backing it up and the hop bitterness melding in to create a bitter sweet flavor. There really never is enough roast or hops to make it too interesting. Palate lively with a somewhat watery texture and a slightly less than medium body. Finish is short and chocolatey. Very easy drinking for a proter, but not really all that appealing.

Clear mahogany with a creamy tan head. Light caramel and light roast aroma. Bocky flavor, very watery. Doesn’t come close to the porters I know and love. Astringent finish shows some syrupy sweetness but this is too thin to be any good.
