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.

Beerenberger (1581) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Aroma has a subtle sweet quality. Pours a black color with a tan head. Tastes of bitter coffee which carries through into the aftertaste. Light bodied with minimal carbonation. Overall, while enjoyable, I would like to have a fuller bodied brew.

tightslice (601) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 9, 2015
Bottle from Willow’s Market in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is roasted malts, light bourbon notes, maybe even an Old Fashioned, light smoke. Taste is dark roasted malts, light bourbon booziness. Finishes light and dry, ashy.

Entire Butt sums it all up. Disgusting. Tastes like someone stirred dirt into some seltzer.

onceblind (6172) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Deep dark brown, nearly black, with a thin light beige head. Nutty chocolaty English aroma. Crisp and medium flavor with a lot of bitter cocoa and roasted black biscuit malt. Lots of roast. Aftertaste has a bit of bittersweet dark chocolate and a touch of coffee. The middle also has a certain mineraliness you usually find in English ales.

Bottle. Deceptively hoppy/beer aroma, but delightful sweet porter. Very flavorful with light chocolate and malt flavors. Just goes to show you don’t have to follow the current trend of mega ABV to create a very satisfying, tasty beer.

mansquito (4480) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2015
The sampler, brooklyn bottle: pour blackish with a beige head. Aroma is lihhtly roasted malt with hints of chocolate and more malt and more. Taste is, as others noted, all over the place. Not really roasty. Not really chocolatey. Not really coffee. Not really fruity. Kind of minerally. Not bad.

Pours deep amber-brown from 12 oz. Malty aroma, some caramel and plums. Toasty flavor, vinous, with bitter finish. Full bodied low carbonation. Good beer, a bit of mish mash with no defining characteristics, but overall drinkable.

Pours a very dark brown with red highlights and a large off-white head. Aroma has some mild roastiness, mild chocolate, and a bit of fruit. Taste is similar-- some roastiness, some chocolate and fruit. Thin bodied and somewhat watery.
