Deschutes makes good beer… they really do. Deschutes Black Butte Porter is no exception to that and the neighbors agree! Every one of us could taste the chocolate and the roasted malt goodness and made quick work of what we had.
The beer is dark, has a bit of a hard edge, but pulls it all off with the complexity of the body and finish. Some of the porters we have had recently have been a bit creamier… they are softer as you drink… not really so for Black Butte Porter and I am ok with that.
Good frothy tan head, dark chocolaty malty body, complex and rich finish. Black Butte Porter comes through.
