12 oz bottle pours a cloudy black -- showing a dark cola coloration at the corners when held to the light -- with a patchy tan head.The aroma is first of dark roast malt, with a leathery dark chocolate smell and anise and dried fruit notes coming after. The taste follows the aroma with a sweet creamy texture like a milk stout; the body is on the lighter side, but not watery. The finish has the leathery dark chocolate notes in a drawn out mildly bitter finish that is neither dry or sticky. The A thin head lingers and there is minimal lacing. This is a pretty solid porter, not extravagant or flashy, but amazing in a composed, reserved manner. Inbreak (6719) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2017

Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet roasted, puffed rice, roasted grain, dark sugar, roasted coffee, chocolate, caramel, hay, grass, lactose. Taste is slightly sweet watery, roasted grain, hay, cardboard, puffed rice, coffee, grass, sugar, caramel. Medium bitterness, slightly dry watery mouthfeel. Meh! Expected a lot more from this one...
Chocolatey aroma is dominant, pours a dark colour with creamy head. Smooth creamy mouthfeel for sure! Flavours of chocolate and malt are prominent. Would love a glass of this porter some evening in the dead of winter!

Right from the first sip you could taste the chocolate. Though there is a slight bitterness the chocolate comes through perfectly. Has a rich dark colour. It’s definitely a beer I would have again.

Dark brown beer with a medium foamy tan head. Nose of cola, cocoa, and candied nuts. Flavor is fairly rich with semi-sweet chocolate, light coffee, and vanilla finished with a chalky bitterness that lingers pleasantly. With a slightly creamy mouth feel, this is a solid, mild porter.

12floz bottle, $1.50 unit price, BBD: 11.04.2017, mug glass. Presents itself blackish-brown in color and a one-finger, big bubbles head. The smell isn’t very impressive, charcoal with hint of toffee. Tastes better though, moderately roasty and dark chocolate comes through just a tad. Palate is mostly dry, but velvety textures ripple through every now and then. In short, a decent basic American porter and nothing more. eallenbrown (38) - - JUL 16, 2017
Nice porter with some traditional aspects, but a little on the sweet side.still, drinkable and approachable. Nothing blows you away, but it goes down quick.

bottle. Poured deep brown with a creamy tan head. Roasty coffees aroma. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sticky finish. Flavour of roasted malts, bitter sweet with notes of coffee bean, cocoa powder, a bit herbal. freekyp (2469) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2017
Black butte is known as a standard amongst porters for good reason. Pours dark black capped off with a creamy dollop of dark tan head. Every sip leaves a ring of lace. Milk chocolate nose with some fresh coffee. Medium creamy body is mouthfilling. Ends with a spritzy wash of bubbles and a bit of cola character. An easy drinking porter that is highly sessionable, yet full flavored, despite being just above 5%. Bacchus66 (1006) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 4, 2017
