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.

Roasted malt aroma. Great flavour - coffee, dark chocolate. Light bitterness, not too sweet. Good porter.

Chokolade og mørke malte, næsten ingen humle. Fin balance i en let porter, som man sagtens kan have flere af.

Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro. How: 12 ounce bottle. Appearance: This has a nice look dark in color with about a finger of head. Aroma: light hop bitterness, malty, coffee and chocolate and a bit resiny. Taste: This is a very easy drinking porter. Well balanced on the flavor and overall just a great taste for 5.2 ABV. Palate: Slight carbonation, not to heavy, very drinkable. Overall I really enjoy this porter, definetely a nice balance of flavor and tart just what I expect from a porter. Not too sweet either.

Excellent porter. A bit hoppy, but not to a point where it too much. Slight bitterness gives way to excellent roasted flavor. After taste isn’t great, but overall very satisfied. Will return again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thick creamy beige head stayed on a near black, finely carbonated body.
Minimal aroma of dark fruit & malt.
Medium bodied, smooth & sharp on the back. Dry.
Dark bitter berries, sugar, cream, malt, dark spirits & a hoppy undercurrent.

Black Butte has a slight hop bitterness up front with a nice distinctive chocolate and roasted finish. Very creamy mouthfeel and wonderfully intense flavors. I believe this was Deschutes first big name in their portfolio and it has done nothing but improve with time.

Chocolatey flavor without being too heavy or creamy. Palette is a little sweet afterwards, but is still very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Green coffee bean bitterness on the aroma, from a bottle , this has a rather thin mouthfeel , some spice and bitterness on the finish. Decent, but I was expecting more .

This is a pretty common and excellent porter. Very creamy and robost flavors make this a staple porter for regular consumption.
