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.

Dark, reddish brown body. Hints of chocolate and roasted coffee. Roasty chocolate flavors slightly smokey. One of my favorite porters.

Aroma of chocolate, roast malt, coffee, caramel, vanilla. Appears an almost opaque brown with some red as the light passes through. Flavor is roast, chocolate, some coffee, with a slightly hop-like bitter finish. Palate is medium-full with a nice bubly effervescence, finsih is clean and dry. Overall, a very nice porter, and definitely equal to the sum of its parts.

This is the best porter that I have ever tasted. It does not have a smoky aftertaste like Stone Smoked Porter. Instead, it has a roasted, cocoa-like aroma similar to Mackeson Stout.

this is a really good porter. Everything from Deshutes deserves a taste, but this is one of their better offerings. Lots and lots of head, very woody and malty/choclatey with the alcohol somewhat subdued. The aftertaste is really long and good, you can taste the brew for a full minute afterward. This is as good as Anchorís Porter.

A decent, drinkable porter. Has some strong berry flavors (maybe raspberry) that I could probably do without, but a decent beer to try nonetheless.

This is a delicious porter, nice and dark with a creamy tan head. The flavor has hints of chocolate and coffee with a pleasantly lingering aftertaste.

Out of the bottle pours very smooth with no head. Smokey nutty aroma with an incredible smooth mocha finish. Very little aftertaste for a porter. If a porter is up your alley, try this beer. You wonít be disappointed.

Thick and rich, i can only handle about two of these in a night, but they are delicious. Nice thick head, and hoppy mocha flavor. IIts only major problem is that its impossible to drink a lot of.

Had this at a bar one night. The next day went and bought a six pack. I really enjoy this beer. Pours dark brown with tan head. Nice chocolate flavor with malt. As porters go this is one of the tops for me.
