Black butte porter
Pours a super dark brown with a beautiful creamy two finger head. Sheets of lacing on my CBS snifter. Great looking Porter.
The nose is malt, chocolate, hops and some coffee. This isn't bitter, very smooth, creamy, balanced and inviting.
Wow. I'm not a huge Porter fan, but this beer is delicious. Same profile, and all the flavors work in perfect harmony. Maybe a tiny bit of vanilla on the edges. The best of this style I've had. None of the 'burned coffee' taste I get in so many Porters.
Feel is super malty, creamy, with just a tinge of hops on the outside.
Overall, this is an outstanding Porter. I'll definitely buy this again if I see it. Highly recommended.
