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 is a great beer and is often on-sale... it is also made all year long.... a nutty thicker beer that shows no bitter when drunk warm...

Draft at Brewdog Shoreditch. Chocolate and roasted notes that follows through into taste. Black appearance. Tastes fairly thin and overall fairly underwhelming. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong coffee and chocolate notes. The sweetness balances nicely with the light bitterness. A bit thin compared to other porters. Flavor improves and it mellows as it warms. Maybe my favorite Porter after Edmund Fitzgerald and Fullers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle from Brewdog shop. Good sized creamy head, decent lacing. Dark black body. Creamy chocolate nose, hints of coffee. Roast coffee flavour, dark chocolate, chocolate syrup, a little spice, very light bitterness on the finish. Light carbonation, smooth creamy mouthfeel. Very good porter.

Classic American porter, bittersweet with a hefty chocolate core surrounded by mild cherry-raisin notes and a roasty, modest bitterness on the finish. Creamy texture and lovely mocha nose make it way too easy to kill the pint. Good beer.

On draft at Dan's Downtown Tavern. The pour is a darker brown with a good bit of garnet showing through and a thin off khaki colored ring of head that leaves a light soapy lace behind. The aroma is really bitter up front. There is a good bit of hop, and then a light roastiness. A light metallic component comes to light with a good chocolate through the finish. The flavor is much of the same. It's really bitter. The chocolate comes through a little more with a roastiness undertone. The metallic fades a bit, which is nice. The mouth feel is solidly medium bodied with a softer carbonation and a lingeringly bitter and roasty finish. This isn't terrible for a porter, but the bitterness of the hop just doesn't do it for me. 6 4 7 4 14

On tap at Brewdog soho. Black with a perfect ice cream foam residing. Scent is quite impressive notes of what I think is mahogany wood vanilla. Taste is lovely, medium dense porter with wood resins, caramel, bubblegum flavors. Finish is lightly dry. Bit sticky when warmed. Very great.

HourGlass13 (1000) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2017
Pours up brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted coffee. Taste is bittersweet, with notes of chocolate, and coffee. Light fruity undertones, but the chocolate stays dominant. Body stays to the lighter side of medium. Good.
