A personal favorite of mine. It had all the qualities i love in a beer, complex, smokey, a silky mouthfeel, a wonderful smell, and just enough bitterness.

Black Butte has a smokey taste with very strong undertones of very good chocolate, and by "Very Good" i mean actual chocolate. Not a cheap Hershey's, but a strong bitterness with a fruity coffee undertone. There is a smokey roastiness to the malt, and the silky mouthfeel trademark of good porters.

The good feelings Black Butte brought on are the standard by which i hold my beers. While money issues have kept me from experimenting as far as i'd like, i like to grab a six pack or a large bottle whenever i have the money.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark brown color with a medium sized tan colored head. The aroma is a fantastic blend of roasted malt and cocoa. the flavor is rich and full and is a perfect match for the appearance and aroma. The taste is roasted malt with cocoa and coffee as an aftertaste. This is one of the best beers I have ever had.
