Black Butte Porter brewed by Deschutes Brewery - Bend, Oregon

Black Butte Porter  brewed by Deschutes Brewery - Bend, Oregon

With a dark beer as our first and flagship brand, Black Butte defined Deschutes as a radical player. A slight hop bitterness up front enhances the distinctive chocolate and roasted finish. It’s prized for its creamy mouthfeel and intense complex flavors. Malt: Pale, Carapils, Chocolate, Crystal, Wheat. Hops: Cascade, Bravo, Tettnang. Alc. 5.2%. IBUs 30.

Deschutes Porter

Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance – Pours a super dark brown with a slight amber tinge that can be seen in the glass. Big, dominating tan head that retains well and sticks to the glass like white on rice.

Smell – Big. That’s the one word description of the nose on this one. Every scent you catch is big, strong, and dark. Chocolate, malts, and caramel round up one of the tastiest smelling beers I think I’ve ever came across.


Taste – Comes at you after the nose like the Yankee’s Murderer’s Row lineup. You get the nose and the taste back to back, like a wicked one-two punch. Dark malts, chocolate, and a little coffee and caramel round out one of the most balanced porters I’ve ever had.

Mouthfeel – Smooth, creamy, wonderful.

Overall – This is absolutely an A List porter, no question about it. World Class. I need to find a place where I can obtain sixers of it, whether it be in pints or 12-oz. bottles. Once you’ve had this porter, you will compare all your other porters, before and after, to this one. Highly recommended.

Deschutes Brewery
Located in beautiful Bend, Oregon, Deschutes Brewery is in the business of daring people to expect more from their beer. That's why we started off in 1988, on the banks of the Deschutes River here in Bend, Oregon, by selling Black Butte Porter at a time when others were sure a dark beer would never catch on. Our brewers love to push the envelope, especially if it makes someone nervous. But for us, the highest praise is a raised glass and a toast of "Bravely Done!"
