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.

Chocolatey, malty perfection. Slightly sweet, just enough bitter. Wonderful.

Lovely black beer with a thick lasting dark brown head. Nice dark chocolate aroma and a bit of caramel maltiness. Flavour of chocolate and toffee before a long toasty and slightly smoky finish. A quality brew.

Nice black hue, with a very roasty presence. Bitterness from the hops are noticable. Slightly thin palate. I wouldn’t want to drink to much of this, but it’s a pretty solid offering.

Fine porter. I drank this one about 70 ft. up in a tree. It kept me warm on the cold afternoon. A black beer that sits in the mouth with exeptional fine chocolate and nutty taste. Enjoy!

Dark pour, tan head. Choclate malty nose. Some good flavor rockin’ my tongue here. Dark chocolate, coffee. Ya know, these people...they go to sleep thinking everything’s fine...everything’s good. Yeah..then they wake up and they’re on fire.

deep brown, with an immense tan head. initial reaction...very heavy on the hops for a typical porter. damned interesting actually. aroma has mild roast notes with slight chocolate...not really stout-like, but present nonetheless. flavor is both sweet and sour, medium-bodied, slight roast. quite good.

Another product of the micro brewers in Oregon. Great tasting beer. clean and to the point. Buy it, try it, and you will be hooked.

Pours like a dark mahogany - very dark with reddish tints. Smells roasted with chocolate smells. Tastes like a combo of tasty malts. Faint taste of brown sugar. Clean finish - smells stronger than it tastes - but still pretty good.

Many thanks to Indiana Red for this one. Easy and approachable, just like I like my women. The beer itself pours smooth and velvety with little carbonation (again, just like I like my women). A nice hint of chocolate tickles the tongue and a slight smoke flavor seals the deal. Good stuff.
