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.

Bottled: Reddish brown coloured. Light brown head. Coffee, malt, Liqourice and roast in the aroma. Cofee, sweet, malt, hops in the flavour. Is fat, roasty and coffeish in the end. Thanks Springslicker for trading.

On tap. This micro is a staple in the Portland bar scene. Pours not quite black, bit of marroon in there. Nice head. The stronger flavor had me rechecking the not-so-strong aroma again. Nothing too complex other then roasted malt and coffee. Some cocoa notes. Same in the taste. Although it is a refreshing porter with a medium palate, not heavy at all, it sure fills me up quick. I prefer its quality to many other selections in Portland.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Deep crimson in color with a fluffy head that dissipates. Slightly roasted aroma is welcoming. Medium bodied. Fine flavors of roastiness, chocolate and a little hoppiness at the finish. Mellow beer, actually is similar to guinness. Enjoyable for a porter.

On tap. Very dark with burgundy highlights. Lasting foamy head. Light roasted coffee aroma. Dusty coffee and plum flavours. A little zesty in the finish.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 22, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2005 Pours a very dark black. Aroma is chocolate sweet andvery strong molasses. Taste was choolate, molasses, caramel with some roasted coffee in the aftertaste. Body was a bit thin, but picks up a bit in the middle.

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 18, 2005
Pours dark brown with a bit of off white head that leaves a little bit of lacing. Carbonation is very fizzy and the head disipates very quickly. Smells a little bitter choclatey with some hops too it as well, not a bad smell but nothing special. Tastes a little spicey almost at first then gives way to a prominate bitter chocolate taste that stays with you for the moderately long aftertaste. You feel like you’ve been eating chocolate about 10 second after taking a sip its nice. Beer tastes better than it looks or smells.

The aroma is of spice, stale bread. Appearance is a deep burgandy. The flavor is of spice. Overall ok.

brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - FEB 9, 2005
Poures a beautiful black with a tan head. Smells fresh and interesting. Dark roasted malt, creamy chocolate, with just a hint of dark fruit. A touch of coffee at the finish. Medium bodied, but thins out when it gets to the back of the throat. Still this is a nice beer by a respectable brewer.

(Bottle) Pours a nearly opaque black body with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Flavor is similar to the aroma with a somewhat bitter coffee aftertaste.
