Deschutes Black Butte Porter

Written by

This was a $2.99! When I bought it from John at Dennis Brothers I looked at the receipt and told him there must be a mistake. No mistake. A 22 oz great porter for under $3. I lean toward the stout side of beers but liked this anyway. It is a “stout light”. It pours black but thin and has a light head. It comes with a rich chocolate, roasted malt aroma and a thin mouth feel. This porter reminded me I prefer a heavy brews but this is an easier sessionable beer. It is a typical porter with a heavy malt flavor, some chocolate as well. Because of the size I was able to enjoy this with a grilled hamburger and some chocolate. Both enhanced the flavor. If you like stouts but want to drink more try this porter. Deschutes is new to our territory so I’m looking forward to getting to know their other beers.

ABV 5.2%

Grade: A-
