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.

Bottle. Dark brown body with a large offwhite head. Aroma is chocolate, dark fruit, roast, coffee notes. Flavor is chocolate, dark fruit, roast. I think it gets better aging.

Pours on the blacker side of brown, with a thin tan head. Aroma is semi-sweet dark malts and hints of fig. Taste is slightly sweet/toasty malt and rich caramel. Finish is a dry combination of stone fruit and earthy bitterness.

Strong dark chocolate aroma with some fruity esters of plum. Surprisingly smooth at first. High fruity eater profile with an aftertaste of coffee, dark chocolate, raisins and dates. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hatzilla (14) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Pours very dark with a huge dark tan head leaving lots of lacing. Aroma is cocoa, coffee, figs, bourbon, vanilla and oak. Taste is similar to the nose, with lots of cocoa, chocoalate, bourbon, oak and more chocolate. Medium body with a creamy texure and lively carbonation. Alcohol shows in the aftertaste as it warms. Overall, a tasty sipper with lots going on. Cheers!

Pours black and a bit thin with a decent head that fades. Aroma is chocolate and dark fruits. taste is arom with a nice bitterness but nothing terribly exciting. Palate is really thin for a beer this size and somewhat unsatisfying. overall its a good beer but probably not worth all the hype.

Bottle. Pours deep brown with a small light tan head. Aroma is fantastic, chocolatey with some notes of love sauce, a slight fruitiness with,a touch boozy. Flavor is much the same, quite fruity with some chocolate and a bit woody. Medium to full body and soft carbonation. Nice beer

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - DEC 9, 2012
opened 11/30/12, rich dark mahogany, thin creamy tan head, that dissipated. Dark malts and chocolate on the nose, with a bit of booze. Medium thick mouthfeel, the cacao nibs show nicely, and the deep dark winter fruit notes play very well on the backend, and then a finishing bitter chocolate. Very little taste of the high ABV. Another fantastic black butte anniversary offering.

Dogbrick (9344) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle at Freakin’ Frog. Dark brownish-black pour with a medium foamy khaki head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is malty with some chocolate and dark fruit notes. Full-bodied with a burnt malt character and notes of figs, dark chocolate and subtle booze. The finish is rich with a dark malty and oaky aftertaste. Good beer all around.

UDBeernut (2140) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle at the BA Buffalo bottle share. Pours deep jet Black and Tan head. Chocolate and cocoa dances on the nose and mouth. Slight brown sugar and stone fruit on the finish. At times feels a bit muddled or confused. Body is full and a strong sipper.
