Mainly available bottled. Has been seen on tap.
Historically the term used to describe a porter blended from a variety of ales, entire butt uses 14 different malts and 3 hops to recreate this forgotten style of porter. The beer is black/brown with a crisp white head and is distinctly vinuous. It has little hop character as essentially the flavour is derived from the malts. Malts used: pale Maris Otter, lager, wheat, pale crystal, dark crystal, dark chocolate, pale chocolate, black, roasted barley, caramalt, torrified wheat, amber malt, brown malt and malted oats.

Sorry I must disagree with many other ratings. I felt the bitterness was to strong for the type, thin and certainly not up to other Uk porters. I could not find the benifit of the multiple malts.

I gave myself a look of greatness after a swig of Entire Butt. Now that’s not bad, not bad at all. Keep in mind I just drank a McEwans and a glass of warm water would be an improvement. But since Im no smuck, and I know a thing or two about a thing or two, Ill be brutally honest. This is a good fucking porter. No strings attached. If I wanted to pull dick Id be working the corner. A combination of bland blackness with the strength of ten men. You cant get more poetic then that.

Very thin and lacking full-flavor, but it isnít entirely unpleasant, as it is very smooth and not too heavy. Not much hoppiness, but plenty of maltiness. Neither sweet nor dry, very balanced. A very drinkable porter, but not a memorable one.

Huh, huh huh, entire butt, huh huh. Okay, now that that is out of the way, this is a pretty decent porter. Nice, dark tan appearance, and a roasted malt aroma that invites you to drink. Toffee and coffee in the flavor, with a nice, roasty finish. The body is slightly thin, and, as Ringo pointed out, with 14 malts I expected a little more from this beer, but it is still a tasty, easy-drinking porter.

Dark but a little thin for a reasonably strong stout.Although the bottle talks about 14 different malts the overriding taste that I could detect was like sulphur.Once that had cleared there was a delicate bittersweet taste with hints of caramel.Interesting but not great. alth

Medium tan head, dark red body (not opaque), roasty, malty nose. Body is somewhat thin, complex, rather bitter. Coffee is the most prevalent flavor. Pretty good stuff.

Indra (2656) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 7, 2002
Nice, strongly malty aroma with some toffee, dark bread, lightly roasted coffee and cocoa. Slight head (perhaps poured a bit too carefully), and having a deep mahogany shade. Flavor progresses through a lot of the different malt characters, making this a very interesting drink, in addition to the underlying historical interest. It is kind of fun to see how many you can pick out, as the bottle label suggests. Just as one aspect starts to become most apparent, along comes another. Complex and very drawn out. Finish is quite long and lingering with roasty accents throughout. Body is on the thin side, with a faintly effervescent flourish. Fascinating and satisfying ale.

This is a dark brown beer with amber undertones. it is topped with a medium thick creamy head. the aroma is sweet and malty with a slight coffee/chocolate undertone. the flavor is strong with malt and has a smokey coffelike finish. this beer is not as heavy as expected and is fairly smooth.

A very tasty porter with a complex flavor.
