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.

fidelis83 (2403) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Pours near black, with a 3 finger, frothy tan head that has excellent retention and leaves nice lacing. Very malty aroma: lots of toast, nuts, roast, light sweet toffee, and sweet chocolate. Super malty, sweet flavor: lots of chocolate, hazelnut, some coffee, earth, planty and lightly earthy, fruity yeast. Medium to light body with a somewhat creamy entry, off dry finish and somewhat sharp carbonation. One of those beers that seems amazing when you are just drinking a beer, but more flawed when really analyzed. Still, pretty nice.

Fantastic Porter that is full bodied and delicious. Reminds me of a very good cup of coffee.

Great head retention. Pours black with a creamy tan head and ruby highlights. Creamy richness dominated by luscious roastiness. One of my favorites.
