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

On tap at Freakin Frog. Super dark brown with a frothy head. Malty with some chocolate. A nice porter.

From Draft. Pours a dark brown root beery color with a nice serving of creamy cappucino froth. Light aromas of vanilla, milky chocolate, and mild roast coffee are pleasantly balanced. Slightly thin body is a touch watery, but has a pleasing milky texture. The flavors are quite enjoyable, albeit predictable. Semi-sweet toasted oatmeal, milk chocolate, and early morning gas station coffee sweetened with a touch of vanilla. Not bad, and a very good everyday drinking beer to pair with a meal.

Deeply roasted caramel malt with toffee, nuts, chocolate, and molasses. This has an easy-drinking feel to it, perhaps a bit water-down in texture, but still quite nicely done.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Pours to an opaque black, with a thick tan head, and medium lacing throughout drink. Aroma of nuts, chocaolate and toffee. Taste at early glass mostly of chocolate and malt, but alcohol starts slipping into the taste at mid-bottle. Nice, smooth finish. Very good porter.

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.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - MAY 14, 2006
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.
