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. Itís prized for its creamy mouthfeel and intense complex flavors.

An absolute top notch performer and contender for world’s best porter. I have had many porters and this one sets the standard for all others to be judged. It has a hint of chocolate aftertaste and a full bodied dark black color. Yummmmm!

The perfect Porter...12oz. Bottle. pours black as coffee. minimal head... lightly sour with coffee, roasty, barnyard and earthy flavors. If I didnít know any better...iíd say this was a starbucks with alcohol; itís that good. My favorite from Deschutes...

SPDickerman (913) - Texas, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Pours dark brown with hints of reddish mahogany and a fluffy tan head. Smells of chocolate and roast, with a faint hint of hops and a touch of coffee. Taste is chocolaty with coffee notes, not very bitter while still having a roast bite. Medium-bodied with a smooth, creamy texture and decent mouth-carbonation, Deschutes Black Butte Porter finishes with a touch of roast dryness.
