COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With a dark beer as our first and flagship brand, Black Butte defined Deschutes as a radical player. A slight hop bitterness up front enhances the distinctive chocolate and roasted finish. It’s prized for its creamy mouthfeel and intense complex flavors.

Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Pours a cola/dark brown color with a good chocolate aroma. Very mild tasting for such a dark porter which made it a joy to drink. Not the best porter I have drank but a beer I would drink again.

Pours a coca cola type brown with a reddish tint with a thin, slightly beige head. Aroma of chocolate, malt and caramel. Tastes of coffee, cocoa, roasted malt, and macademia nut. Slightly thin and decent linger of taste. Overall quite enjoyable.

dmschefke (575) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Pours a nice almost black brown, thin pour, thin off-white head. Aroma very nice of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, and nutty. Flavor is very pleasant, but no surprise from the aroma. Mouthfeel is creamy and dry. Very nice porter here. Looking forward to XX.

rmussman (1701) - California, USA - MAY 30, 2009
Sampled a couple of times. A really nice brew with lots of smokiness. Very good malts, pours dark with a decent thin head on it. Very rich, very nice.

3.5
tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Bottle. Dark brown body that develops a large, loose, light beige head that slowly fades into a thin film. Aroma is nutty, lightly sweet and coffee. Flavor is bittersweet, nutty, a bit of chocolate, and grainy breadiness, but overall somewhat thin. Medium palate. It’s been several years since my last one and its good to see it’s still a solid porter.

3.8
Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Tap, Forest Room 5, with Alaskanwarren. Deep red/brown, tan layer of bubbles. Sweet caramel and fresh coffee nose. Nicely balanced caramel/pastry and roast; one sip you get one, the next the other. Very bright and refreshing. Medium/light palate presence, but still nicely soft and round.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2009 Bottle from Bottleworks. Pours a super dark black with a frothy tan head that leaves nice lacing. The aroma is mild but I get a distinct caramel and molasses. Pretty sweet, but balanced well with the hops. This is a creamy porter with very lively carbonation.

djd07 (15075) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Bottle as shown. Pours a dark brown with a medium frothy light tan head that lasts awhile. The aroma is a roasted malt with coffee and chocolate. Good sticky lacing along the glass. Medium mothfeel with a roasted malt with a smoky flavor and sweet finish. A good porter from deschutes.

jgb9348 (6321) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Pitch black coloured body with brown tints and a nice white head! Aroma of malt and coffee. Medium-bodied; Strong malt - not much else going on, however. Decent aftertaste mainly of light nuts and malt. Overall, decent, but not that great! I sampled this beer on draught at Kelly’s in Portland, Oregon on 09-September-2006.
