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.

From bottle. Aroma was chocolate and booze and a little metallic. Pours with modest fast dissipating head. Tastes of rich chocolate, roast, and a little warming booze, also a tiny hint of perfume which was nice. Drinks very very dry and rich

I had this beer at craft beer and it was amazing. It pours a coffee black with a tan head. Chocolate aroma, slight hop bitterness with a creamy taste in your mouth. I highly recommend this beer.

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.

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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
