XXIV. 24 years after Black Butte Porterís debut, our potent, layered, imperial tribute returns. As usual, itís a jazz riff, guided by the brewerís 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, youíll be the judge of that.

On draft at PDX brewpub for OBF. Vinous and viscous. Coffee mixed with barrel. Lots of alcohol with a slight burn. Glad I tried it but Iím hoping the bottles will mellow with some time.

Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lasting brown head. Aromas of mocha, coffee, dates, dark chocolate, fig, light bourbon and a hint of cherry. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of dark chocolate, spice, roasted malt, dark fruit and light oak with a smooth dry lingering chocolate finish.

Stronger hop flavor than expected. Pine is present in flavor and nose. Pretty good taste to it.

Bomber. Pours opaque black with a small foamy head that fades quickly to a bubbly ring. Big dark chocolate aroma with some maple, dark fruit, and sort of cookie sweetness. Taste is fairly sweet, very little bitterness. Nice dark chocolate flavor with some light roast and dark fruit. Not very complex but pretty tasty. Smooth finish, some tobacco too. Thin to medium body, silky and a little oily mouthfeel. A big tasty imperial porter.

Bottle, opened 7/19/13 four days before the íbest afterí date... oh well. Very dark brown pour with a creamy two fingers of tan head. Roast and chocolate in the nose, along with a little added sweetness that I suspect comes from the dates and figs. Given that I havenít had a date or fig in several years, this fruity/beral spiciness must be their affect. It goes well with the dark cocoa and roasty notes... too well; it was very easy to power through my first glass. Overall very enjoyable.
