Black Butte Porter
Black Butte Porter (Deschutes)
Ratebeer 3.65 93rd percentile
Beer Advocate A-
This is a porter through and through; you can tell by the nose. It is smoky with roasted grains; like burnt whole wheat toast with coffee spilled on it, yet a little sweet. Over the lips.. nice medium body and oddly creamy. The tastes of roasted coffee, toast, toffee spread everywhere. These flavours are not overpowering and have a backbone of roasted malt sweetness.
There is a long lingering of palate cleansing, roasted grains and burnt sugar. It does not coat but slightly dries out the mouth.
Alcohol Content 0 5.2%
This is one of the greatest porters I have ever tasted.
Ingame Enhancement +1
Tonight was an epic L4D night; I completely owned Shifty during a versus round. Not really, I was in Seattle watching TV in the hotel room. I though the beer's score needed the extra point
If you like porter, you will like this one. It is safe to say than anything made my Deschutes is a great beer.
