The best Bomber I've had in a long time the big flavors of The Porter lead to a great Cranberry finish that is beyond good. well worth the $13.00

Simply the best Black Butte to date...incredible complexity (the black currents add just the right amount of tartness to the chocolate, caramel, and brown fruitiness of this beauty). The body is a bit more full than in past editions, and there’s a much softer, smoother lack of heat, right off the bat. Kudos, once again, Deschutes!
