COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. 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 (9109) - 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 (1993) - 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.

johno (185) - Galveston, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Pleasant aroma with lots of chocolate, molasses, a little raisin.. quite creamy, coats the palate, velvety, rich & warming, leans rather sweet. Finishes very sweetly. Lush & enjoyable, good, tasty, but lacked the top-tier complexity I hoped for.

Sammy (9256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2012
A thick black pour. Black bodied with lots of lace. Chocolate, smooth with the figs, dates, complex,stouty, some coconut. Not as boozy as expected, bourbon taste being well integrated and not obtrusive.
