I recently had the pleasure of sampling the Black Butte Porter from Deschutes Brewery of Bend, Oregon. The Black Butte Porter is the flagship beer of the brewery, and after tasting, I can understand why.
It was a nice, smooth, rich porter with a nice chocolate flavor. There are usually two types of porters found in America: those that have a lot of hops, and those that don’t. The Black Butte is the latter, making it a delightful beer with low bitterness and smooth chocolaty goodness that I could see myself enjoying many of.
Have you tried Deschute’s Black Butte Porter? What did you think?
