Deschutes Black Butte Porter (355ml Bottle)
Dark and distinctive like Black Butte itself, Black Butte Porter uses chocolate and crystal malts, crafting a rich, approachable porter.
Pours deep brown, black in the glass, with a medium tan head, fine lasting lacing. Smells of chocolate, espresso, apple, molasses, hay and pine. Medium-thin body, velvety smooth, with some crispness. Tastes of dark chocolate, raspberry, citrus, and pine. Slightly mineral flavor, which compliments the malts. Well balanced.
Black or chocolate malt gives the porter its dark brown color. Porters are well hopped and heavily malted. This is a medium-bodied beer. Porters can be sweet. Hoppiness can range from bitter to mild. Porters are often confused with stouts.
