Black Butte Porter is Deschutes Brewing Company's flagship microbrew. Rich in color, smooth and creamy to drink, this is a great dark beer. This delicious brew was first released at a time when dark beers had a certain mystique surrounding them; dark beers were touted as beer not to be enjoyed by everyone, but just a select few.
Well, so much for that myth! Dark microbrew has since come into its own and Black Butte Porter is one of the leaders of the pack! With an ABV of 5.2%, this Deschutes Porter is bold in flavor and at the same time, super easy to drink with its rich and creamy taste. The initial slight hop bitterness enhances the distinctive chocolate and roasted finish.
Beer on the Wall is proud to offer this awesome brew in our online beer store as well as a pretty fantastic selection of beer glasses and beer t shirts; all great beer gift ideas!
