4.1/5 rDev +4.1%
This porter almost had it all with great taste, balance and hints of chocolate, caramel, coffee. The color was deep and alluring with a slight foam on top. My only issue with this porter was it was just a shade on the thin side for body. This was not enough to ruin the beer for me as I would drink it again, but just a bit unexpected.

I had this on tap at the Fairfield tap room as a part of a sampler in December 2013. I was quite impressed.
A - Black, small head. About what you would expect from a porter.
S - chocolate, moderate roast. well balanced and a little sweetness to it.
T - This is where this beer hooked me. I tasted it and kinda went "that's a really nice beer, but nothing too special." Then the back end of the beer hit me and the depth was shocking. This is a flavor that sticks in your mind but eludes description. There was definitely chocolate, light roasted depth, a mild coffee like note, but then back to chocolate. This just kept going.
M - Silky and full with some sweetness, but not cloying. Definitely a little astringency from the dark malts, but well balanced. Quite impressive.
O - Wish I could have brought some home with me. Its on my list next time I visit the area. I've told the people I know passing through they have to go to the taproom and they have to try this beer.

On Tap at Brewery
A - Dark, dark brown with a tan/mocha one finger head. Lacing is present but not very thick or heavy.
S - Roasted Malt, dark coffee, caramel, chocolate, with hints of toast and raisins.
T - Coffee was very upfront right off the bat followed by the caramel. Roasted malts rounded out the flavors.
M - Medium body with medium/low carbonation. Creamy finish with just a hint of bitterness.
O - A very good solid porter, while I am not going to give up drinking Black Butte Porters, this will find its way into my fridge on a regular basis.
