Deschutes Black Butte Porter
A: black in color. Forms a large tan head with excellent retention and lacing. A fine looking beer. 4.5
S: aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa, and just a whif of smoke. 4.0
T: the dominate flavor is chocolate. Dry chocolate, not at all sweet. Heavily roasted malts, cocoa, cream, and a very light hint of vanilla round things out. Very faint hops. 4.5
M: full bodied. Dry, almost chalky mouthfeel. Mild bitterness. Lower carbonation. 4.0
O: a fine example of a porter. Nice chocolate and roasted malt profile. Easily drinkable. 4.0

Though I bought this beer in bottle, I poured it into a chilled/frozen glass that I had in my freezer from earlier in the day. This beer has a great initial taste, a little nutty but very subtle and delicious. This is followed by a SOLID chocolate aftertaste. It is almost like drinking the best cold coffee youve ever had. Simply the best Porter I have ever tasted. If you have the opportunity, buy it. You will surely not regret the purchase of this beer. Thank you Deschtes Brewery.
