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.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a small redish glare and thin and tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate and roasted malt. Subdued sweetness, light burned malt - but only a hint, dark chocolate and a nice bitterness to just break the malt flavours. Smooth and roasted dark malt flavoured finish. Lingering smooth flavoured and mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2007 A black beer wih a disappearing brown head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of roasted malt, but also hints of chocolate. The flavor is sweet and again with roasted malts being most dominant and leading to a dry roasted end.
