I personally feel that Deschutes Black Butte Porter is the gold standard of Porters.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a black color with a nice creamy head and some lacing. Smells of toasted malt and chocolate. Tastes of cocoa powder and malt. Finishes slightly sweet, which I don’t mind at all. A pretty solid beer here. Wish it had better aroma though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice aroma, however it is not a strong one, subtle, but good. Beautiful black color very dark, you can barely see light through it, but low head. The taste is a classic example of the style, my girlfriend enjoys this, and she is not a fan of beer in general. It is sweat but not overpowering with a hint of chocolate in the after taste. Nice mouth feel with very little carbonation which is typical of a porter. I would recommend this and drink it again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Wine and Cheese Place (Rock Hill) MO. Aroma is roasted malts with mild chocolate. Appearance is very dark brown--almost opaque, with 2-finger beige foamy head with attractive lacing. Taste is moderately sweet with roasted chocolate. Palate is mild to moderate body with thin texture with carbonation to support the beer but not call attention to itself. Finish is mildly sweet. Overall, a nice Porter with a little bit thin palate.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
