COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
XXIV. 24 years after Black Butte Porter’s debut, our potent, layered, imperial tribute returns. As usual, it’s a jazz riff, guided by the brewer’s muse and the lure of exotic ingredients. Artisanal dark chocolate nibs. Daglet dates. Mission figs. It may, possibly, hopefully, be the best edition yet. But, as it should be, you’ll be the judge of that.

3.1
Jacobyhale (1) - Oregon, USA - JUL 31, 2012 does not count
Aroma: Loads of Chocolate, slight coffee, citrusy hops. Medium Toasty/Black Licorice Smell. Appearance: This beer looks awesome. Frothy Cappucino head, deep and dark thickness to the first look Taste: Initial taste is of liquid chocolate, then big hit of bitterness. Still too young, again this year...they need to release this beer after a year+ of again. Finishes with an overwhelming taste of black licorice. Roast+Bitterness= Black Licorice Overall=Interesting addition of the figs and dates, you can tell some kind of dark fleshy fruit is there, will probably age well. Hops are way too much at this point, I wouldn’t drink for at least another year, but more like 3+ would be better.

Dark black in color, thick tan head. Super chocolate and coffee aroma. Lots of imperial porter thick and rich flavors. Lets this beer warm up.

On tap and the Bend brewpub. Black with a modest dark tan head. Traces of wispy lacing. Dark sweet roasted flavors and a busy flavor profile. The chocolate is there but not pomonant, the dates and figs round things out nicely. Trying my best to let this warm up a bit. Very nice.
