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.

tennisjoel (1494) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Dark pour with adequate lacing, which is an off white color. Aromas of fig, bourbon, smoke, and chocolate. Complex concoction, with a kick from the ABV. Warming in the tummy, but not harsh, which is a positive. Flavors of bourbon, fig, and soy are presented. As with most beers in this group, this is much better served at a warmer temperature. A good beer to sip by a fire in the dead of winter, even though I happen to be enjoying it now in the middle of August.
