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.

jennajlover (135) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 13, 2015
One of best porters to style. Jet black with big tan head. Slight hop nose and much toffee and coffee. Flavor slightly bitter from both dark malts and hops. Finishes extremely clean with the dark malts and dryness.

Fra flaske (bb. 300514) på rbhd-samling hos Sigmund, juni-15: mmm, et nydelig anslag mot nesegrevet! Mørk kvalitetskaffe, solbær, vanilje. Og smaken følger opp, denne har tålt lagringen, selv om humleinntyrkket er svakt. Tørr og samtidig myk avslutning.

cwill (25) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Deep dark brown with a thick foamy tan head. Solid lacing. Roasted coffee, burnt grains, chocolate, vanilla, even some cherry, come through.  Subtlety sweet fruit surprises you at first with a blast of cherry, then chocolate and brown sugar, follow by roasted malt and finished perfectly with a slightly hop flavor. Very light in body, moderate carbonation, great creamy finish. A very well balanced easy drinking porter.

Bottle into stout glass. Black w thick head on a hard pour. Not much Aroma. Solid chocolate and roasted malt flavor. Smooth mouthfeel. Some mild hop notes but not overpowering which is good to see. Good solid easy drinking porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RBHD gathering at Sigmunds place 7.6.2015. Pours clear dark ruby with a moderate sized beige head. Inviting aroma of chocolate, dark malts, weak roast. Taste is light sweet, with a decent light acidic berries addition plus the fruity hops. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Lingering with roast and herbs.
