3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Spare head, off-white color. Quite dark brown beer.
Aroma is almost all malt; some chocolate especially on the finish. Hops are very light.
Body is on the light side for a porter. Texture is somewhat creamy. Finish is only average in length and intensity.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12oz bottle into tulip. 3 Finger head, moderately slow to dissipate. Appearance is extremely dark brown almost black. Hold it up to the light and it has almost a reddish appearance. Aroma is slightly hoppy. Faint hints of roasted malt, maybe a touch of toffee and a hint of coffee . Tastes like a porter, a simply well made porter. Nothing more, nothing less. Easy drinker. Enjoyable.

Heh heh... Butte.... I once had a beer called the entire Butte... It was bad... But despite what the name implies, black Butte is delicious! Very good porter! Nice and roasty! Just like I like Em!
This rating has gone to a weird place so I will stop... I do like this beer though!

Pour from 12 oz bottle to a shaker. Decent head that settles to nice lacing. Can really smell the chocolate in this more than in the taste. Bitterness up front with a nice smooth finish. Very nice porter

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours with a dark brown mahogany body that supports a thin dark tan head. The mild aroma offers up bits of dark roasted malts, chocolate and malt balls. The taste starts with lightly roasted malts, lightly roasted earthy coffee and then thin slivers of chocolate. Behind those notes the malts and a bit of nuttiness have an astringent edge to them. Classic Porter. The chocolate grows as more ounces are consumed.
