Dark and malty, with a roasted character just as a robust porter should have. When served ice cold, the true flavor of this beer doesn’t come through - serve it lightly chilled and the aroma and flavor really stand out.
I don’t always drink porter, but when I do, I prefer Black Butte. Even though I’m not the most interesting man in the world.

Molasses. Did anyone say molasses? The other hints noted are there but the maple syrup/molasses flavor is big. Bigger at first but doesn’t fade too much. A great high flavor and unconventional porter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle. Ruby red glowing, dark brown colour with average to huge, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige to tan head. Minimally roasty dark malty aroma with a cautious touch of liquorice, hints of cocoa, chocolate, a fruity touch of berrries and plum. Taste is initially minimally sweet fruity, hints of red berries, later chocolately dark malty, hints of cocoa, dry and slightly malt-spicy finish; super soft and silky palate, fine pored, vivacious but still pillowy carbonation.

341ml bottle. Rich mahogany in colour with a thin but lasting beige head, light lacing. Aroma is of caramel, liquorice, molasses and roasted malts. Flavour is a bit thin, some chocolate, light roast with a small sweetness. Thin mouthfeel, light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes fairly quick, thin. Just noticed the date on the bottle, BB November/07 (opened April 2010). Oops, a little late on opening this one.

Very dark brown with a tight short lived white head. Smells of plumb and toast. Taste is coffee, and cherry. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Very nice beer

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From bottle. I don’t think I’ve had any Deschutes offering that isn’t decent. This is a standby on a hot day. Great body and taste, not the best porter I’ve ever had, but for an everyday porter, this is great. I think I’m spoiled living in Oregon and having much of their selection at my disposal.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brown color with roasted and sweet aroma. There's a bite to it up front that quickly gives way to creamy roasted malt sweetness. Finishes sweet and some chocolate but not too much. Medium body and well balanced. Very good.
