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.

Sarlacc83 (1893) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bottle. A: Dark mahogany body with a creme color head. Light lacing. N: Coffee, lactose, burnt toast, black peppercorn, green leaves, pine, oatmeal, minerality, earth, and cocoa. T: Sweet, bitter, and a bit spicy. M: Medium body, prickly carbonation, no alcohol. O: Nice porter. A classic that continues to earn its good well through a well constructed, if sometimes unexciting, recipe.

electrotype (642) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2016
Nex classique de porter, sans surprises, mais sans défauts non plus! Un look également très standard... On se demande s’il y aura quelques surprises en bouche. En fait, pas vraiment. C’est à la fois un défaut et une qualité : c’est réussi mais vraiment peu original. Peut-être aussi un peu trop mince comme corps cela dit. Bref, une bière respectable, qui ne me marquera clairement pas, mais qui sera bue jusqu’à la dernière gorgée.

Turboninja (478) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2016
Bottle@home, from Heinen’s, Cleveland, USA. Medium aroma with coffee, chocolate and slightly roasted malts. Pitch black color with small light beige head. Medium taste with coffee, dark chocolate and a bit roasted malts. Quite smooth and balanced with medium/wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste with roasted malts and chocolate. Medium body with low/medium carbonation. Overall, high quality though nothing special, a schoolbook porter or this percentage.
