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.

Pours dark black with a tanned head. Nose of caramel and some darker notes. Heavy dark notes of roasted dark coffee, chocolate. Intense, with a thick mouth feel, and some alcohol taste. Not bad, but a bit intense for me.

Uber Tavern, Seattle. February 2013 keg. Heavy brown, not quite black, small soapy tan foam. Sweet, boozy, raisin and fig aroma. Sweet and robust, cherry, chocolate, ruddy malt. Rich age, balanced alcohol, still fairly sharp. Tasty, rich beer. Nicely aged.

Zymurgeist2 (1695) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 26, 2016
Draught at Rose and Crown in Palo Alto as part of SF Beer Week and an aged beer special. Beautiful deep brown with massive deep brown, oily head. Anise and dark fruit. Slight funk and a little medicine. Very nice after 4 years of aging.

oakbluff (434) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 23, 2016
Bomber sample- appearance is typical dark porter , small beige head. Nose- meaty figs are predominant. taste- again a meaty earthy mix of burnt sugars, dark fruits, mineral, chocolate and anise. Finish is where the barrel notes come out, with a dryer wood note to level off the weight of the dark fruits and sugars.

Syndicate (180) - Idaho, USA - JAN 19, 2016
Pours a jet black with a thin beige head that doesn’t last long. Aroma is fig, dates, molasses and roasted malts with just a hint of char. The char is much more pronounced in the flavor. There’s also some slightly burnt chocolate with a bitter finish. Medium/full body with nice carbonation. Pretty good beer.
