XXIV. 24 years after Black Butte Porter’s debut, our potent, layered, imperial tribute returns. As usual, it’s a jazz riff, guided by the brewer’s muse and the lure of exotic ingredients. Artisanal dark chocolate nibs. Daglet dates. Mission figs. It may, possibly, hopefully, be the best edition yet. But, as it should be, you’ll be the judge of that.

MacBoost (1539) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Pours a thick black with no head. Aroma of chocolate bar, roast and some spice. Taste is a twangy hit of spicy ass juice. Pretty good.

Bittersweet dark chocolate flavors accompanied by roasted coffee, figs, molasses. Full body, moderate carbonation, Creamy smooth mouthfeel, warming alcohol, and a bittersweet finish. Very nice.

Boutip (5198) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a medium dark brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of black chocolate notes with some light liquor notes with some dried fruits notes as well. Taste is also a mix between some dark black chocolate notes with some dried fruits notes and some light liquor notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very nice drink though a bit too much of the dried fruits notes.

One of my favorite anniversary beers that I have been stealthfully able to keep up with. This years was smuggled back on an emergency trip out to San Diego. 22 poured into a pint glass. The chocolate and figs are very apparent. This is one of the richest, deepest, most complex porters you will ever come across. Smooth on the sip and entirely too easy to drink at 11%.
