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.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, thanks Ed. I love this beer, rich chocolate, roasted malts, fruity, woody, coffee, vanilla, bourbon. The finish is fairly dry(considering the abv) making this a nice drinking beer.

Sample pour of deep dark, thin liquid with a super thin head. Nose is sweet and smooth, caramel and light roasted malt. Flavor is exactly opposite, with sharp warming alcohol, full roasted malt. Lightly sweetened with caramel and toffee. Really a nice transition. Smooth medium body, and quite drinkable, but the alcohol isn’t hidden. Nice...

22oz bottle courtesy of dcschiller. Cheers, Dave! Pours a deep porter brown with a tab head. Nose is roast, light chocolate, and big dates and figs. Flavor is slight chocolate with dates and figs, lots of figs, huge figs, and more figs. It's good, but fruity and figgy- more so than most other incarnations of black butte. Light to medium in body and interesting overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Dak split with my brother. Pours near black with a dark tan head. Big, roasted malt aroma. Big sweet, roasted, spicy, bready. A bit too big, but nicely decadent.

Deliciously roasty; coffee, chocolate, mild peppers(?!), a kiss of sweetness. Mature and refined. Drink it fresh ladies & gents.
