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.

This beer is my standard for excellence. It’s not over priced and the taste is fantastic. This is the best porter I’ve had and a beer I always go back to.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2011 Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in McKinney, TX. Pours a nice translucent dark brown with ruby hues. Aroma of obvious nice dark roast with some slight band-aid. Flavor has a nice dark roast with some almost off-flavor medicinal notes. Palate is medium body with medium carbonation....I was hoping this would be a better beer, butt none the less, it is good.

A world class porter. A strong coffee and chocolate aroma with a faint hint of hops in the background. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a one finger tan head. Taste was heavy on the coffee and chocolate. Strong bitter coffee and roasted malt in the aftertaste. Very full flavored and well done.

Thanks to brewdad for the bottle. Poured an opaque black into the glass. Smell was bittersweet chocolate. Taste had lots of chocolate as well, nice balancing bitterness, creamy, and a touch of coffee. Really nice example of the style.
